SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. – Scorpion Sports has unveiled its spring 2014 line, with shipping beginning in February. In keeping with the company’s shift to more performance-oriented gear, some of the headliners of the collection include the Podium race suit, EXO-R2000 Series helmets and the Clutch leather jacket.
The Podium race suit ($899.95) has a speed hump with built-in ventilation, molded shoulder and knee protectors, Sas-Tec CE armor and stretch panels for fit. For those who prefer sport touring to track days, the Passport men’s suit ($429.95) is in the “XDR” (Xtreme Distance Riding) category. It has a nylon shell with waterproofing and a removable full-body liner for warmth in cooler climates. Reflective trim and Sas-Tec CE armor are part of the Passport, too.
The R2000 helmet ($369.95 and up) was specifically designed to be a MotoGP helmet. It is available in solid colors and four design options— Bautista SS, Circuit, Ion and Dispatch. Developed by Scorpion engineers with input from MotoGP riders, the R2000 has four shell sizes and six EPS liners, as well as the AirFit cheekpad system. Tear-off posts are available, too.
Another new helmet included in Scorpion’s spring collection is the EXO-1100 ($309.95). The Jab and Sixty-Six designs are on top of a five-layer composite shell. AirFit cheekpads for a custom fit, ten vents and a retractable sun visor are some of the perks.
The other full-face sport option in the spring line is the simpler EXO-R410 ($159.95 and up), which has eight graphics choices as well as the standard solid colors. For off-road riders, there are the VX-R70 ($249.95 and up) and VX-34 ($169.95), both with multiple designs from which to choose.
The EXO-C110 Split ($139.95) is a simply-styled street helmet with a retractable sun visor, a low-profile peak visor and pockets for speakers.
Scorpion lists nine new jackets, with the Clutch leather jacket ($499.95 and up) leading the way. Available in red, white and yellow, the Clutch has perforated leather, padded torso panels, an aero hump with ventilation channels and a removable insulated liner.
New gloves range from short, lightweight gloves like the Solstice ($24.95) to the track-ready Guardian ($79.95) and cold-weather TSW ($99.95) gloves, which both have long gauntlets and external armor.
Scorpion’s spring collection also includes a foray into riding jeans. The men’s Covert Kevlar Jeans ($119.95) are designed to hide the Kevlar insert seams, resulting in jeans that look like their everyday counterparts.
