Speed and Strength puts the ‘hammer down’ on 2016 gear collection

FORT WORTH, Texas – Speed and Strength’s 2016 lineup introduces a wide range of apparel that parent company Tucker Rocky says is redefining textiles, setting the standard in protective performance casual wear, as well as boosting its moto-shirt and hoodie lines.

All of the products can be viewed at Speed and Strength’s website (see below), but here are some highlights:

The Light Speed textile jacket (MSRP $299.95 in four colorways) features a Super Stretch-Fit AR1000 frame that flexes and adapts to any riding position and body style.

The jacket (shown, left), features Vault CE-approved shoulder, elbow and spine protectors, and has reflective trim and a Speed Zip controlled ventilation system. For an adjustable fit, a Molded Strong Arm sleeve adjuster and Lockdown waist adjuster accommodate, as do belt loops for attaching pants.

The Hammer Down collection of rider gear uses a Super Stretch-Fit AR500 frameā€”a more lightweight material that flexes and adapts to the rider, giving the feeling of a custom fit, the company said.

The Hammer Down jacket retails for $179.95 and has a matching SS 700 full-face helmet priced at $99.99. Plus there’s a whole range of coordinating casual wear.

The Fast Times collection includes an armored denim hoody motorcycle jacket for women ($149.95), with CE-approved shoulder, elbow and spine protectors.

For the men, there’s the Soul Shaker denim rider vest ($99.95) made of enzyme-washed denim with a 1-inch mandarin-style collar (see image, right) and a removable CE-approved spine protector.

For the V-twin community, Speed and Strength teams up with Vance and Hines for a 35th anniversary collection of co-branded casual wear, including T-shirts, hoodies and garage shirts for men and women.
