Wolf Moto USA has exclusive U.S. distribution deal
Wolf Moto USA handles U.S. distribution for gear brand Wolf, and among its sport-touring offerings is the Outlast Titanium jacket. The nylon outer shell is Teflon coated with a Texland “HUMAX Z 8000” membrane so it is waterproof but breathable. The Outlast Titanium ($459.95) has all of the soft armor you expect in a motorcycle jacket, along with Clarino shoulder overlays. The thermal lining is removable, and front and rear venting gets air flowing when the heat rises. Wolf also has a matching Outlast Titanium pant ($349.95) and glove ($159.95), both of which are waterproof.

Warm & Safe gives high-tech upgrade to long johns
Warm & Safe’s newest heated offering comes in the form of Generation WindBlock pants available for both men and women. The pants ($214.95) are a thin, lightweight style designed to fit under jeans. The front panel is made from Gelanots, a stretch material that acts as a wind block. The heated zones cover the thighs, knees and rear. Men’s sizing starts at S and goes up to 3XL, while the women’s pants range from XS to XL.

MSR’s MAV1 helmet includes Metal Mulisha, Rockstar styles
The new MAV1 helmet for 2014 comes in five color options as well as Metal Mulisha and Rockstar Energy Drink designs. The MAV1 is a lightweight helmet, weighing in at 3.1 lbs., with a polycarbonate shell. The removable, washable inner liner and cheek pads are color-coordinated to the graphics. The Snell- and DOT-approved MAV1 retails for $149.95 in the five regular colors and $169.95 for the other two designs.

Answer Racing introduces entry-level MX line
If it’s good enough for their sponsored motocross riders, then it must be good enough for everyone. That’s the approach Answer Racing is taking to its new Syncron line of jerseys, pants and gloves.

Answer outfitted racers in the entry-level apparel, which comes in seven color combinations. The pants (MSRP $69.95 youth, $75.95 adults) have perks like pre-curved knees and stretch panels. The jerseys ($24.95 youth, $25.95 adult) are made of a moisture-wicking fabric and have extra-long tails. Syncron pre-curved gloves ($17.95 youth, $19.95 adult) complete the ensemble.
