On warm summer days, every biker considers whether or not to leave without a motorbike jacket. The legitimate question of safety takes them off that idea, but what if it were possible? Take away the disadvantages of a jacket, add enough protection and the result is the Upswing.
This short, pure summer jacket consists of 500D polyester, generously supplemented with mesh panels. Mesh, 'net fabric’ or: a very large number of holes woven at close distances from each other. This means optimal wind permeability and ventilation.
The Upswing is light and comfortable to wear. You can just feel that it's there. Stretch fabric at the waist and double adjustment options on both sleeves allow you to adjust the jacket to your own wishes. The fit of the sleeves is also adjustable with the press buttons provided in two places.
A zipper and velcro strip at the end of the sleeves provide a perfect fit to your gloves. The closure with velcro in the neck fits the bill nicely.
Two outer pockets and an inner pocket - which can all be zipped shut - are available to store away the essentials. Discreet reflective strips (3M™ Scotchlite) on the shoulders, lower back and neck ensure better visibility in the evening and at night. The Upswing is standardly equipped with EN 1621-1 CE protectors on shoulders and elbows. These are also adjustable in height for a 'perfect-fit'. The foam reinforcement on the back can easily be upgraded to a SAS-TEC® version.
The Upswing is ventilated like it should, without compromising safety. The long connecting zipper almost automatically asks to be combined with the Modeka Upswing pants.
Below you will find an overview per jacket size of the appropriate CE homologated SAS-TEC®back protector.
