ALISO VIEJO, Calif. - Schuberth North America announced it has taken over distribution of Held Rider Equipment products for the U.S. market.

Products to be released in June include Held's Gore-Tex leather and textile riding gloves, textile adventure riding suits and waterproof bags, Schuberth stated.

“We are very excited to welcome Held Rider Equipment to the Schuberth North America family,” said Randy Northrup, vice president of Schuberth North America. “Held uses the highest quality materials and draws on decades of engineering innovation to produce some of the best motorcycle gear available, which we believe will perfectly complement our offering of Schuberth helmets.”

Held was the first equipment manufacturer to implement naturally abrasion-resistant kangaroo and stingray leathers in its products, the first to use a special inside stepped seam to eliminate seam discomfort, and the first manufacturer to use a titanium knuckle cover on its gloves, Schuberth noted in its press statement.
Held’s Quattrotempi adventure riding jackets and pants utilize genuine Gore-Tex membranes and Held’s unique cloverleaf protection system, with durable CE-approved armor in key zones like shoulders, elbows, hips, knees and back. Other safety features include an abrasion resistant Cordura outer layer, and 3M Scotchlite reflective details for safer night riding.

Held’s drybag systems feature tough tarpaulin liners, welded seams, and a dust- and windproof adjustable roll-top fastening system to keep contents securely enclosed.
