Ladies’ gear has not been forgotten, and Speed and Strength has the new Throttle Body leather jacket ($299.95) in black or pink. The perforated leather is combined with AR600 textile panels, and waist adjusters allow for fine-tuning the XS to 2XL sizes. Belt loops are provided for pant attachment.
As for men’s gear, Speed and Strength has the Black Nine shoes ($99.95), which may be the best option for riders who want to be safe but also want to wear their Chucks. The leather upper has a lacing system that keeps laces tucked snugly inside, and there are molded reinforcements in the toe, heel and ankle. All that and the retro basketball shoe look, too. Sizes range from 8 to 13, and despite the name, color options also include gray and brown.
