Spidi has chosen a side in the mods versus rockers battle of the 1960s. Clean lines and retro styling have been on the rise lately, and Spidi has joined the trend with the Ace Leather jacket ($549.95). The 0.8mm-thick sheep leather looks old school, while the elbow and shoulder armor have the modern safety riders expect from Spidi.

The Ace Leather jacket is a loner among the new racing-oriented offerings from Spidi, like the Track Wind Replica ($1,599.95). Developed in collaboration with Ducati Corse factory rider Andrea Dovizioso, these leathers may not turn you into a MotoGP star, but they at least provide a lot of protection with cowhide and armor for the chest, back, elbows, knees and shoulders. The Hydroback system fits inside the speed hump for drinking on the go.
