One of Australia’s main gear suppliers, Link International, have hooked me up with a bunch of new gear to test across Autumn and Winter. All new Macna jeans, jacket, gloves and an AGV await eagerly to replace my well worn riding gear. Full reviews on the way…
Ready to use for a few seasons is an AGV K3 S-V helmet, a Macna Imbuz jacket, a pair of Macna Individi Jeans and a pair of Macna Atmos gloves. With Macna gear being my go to brand over the past few years and saving me in two nasty accidents, I’m excited to see if they hold up as well as they have in the past. Check out the product details below…
AGV K3 S-V Helmet
AGV’s K-3 S-V helmet has been developed using their Finite Element Analysis technique in order to maximise comfort, aerodynamics and safety, both for racers and for road riders looking for performance and comfort. A special ventilation system also provides optimal airflow with the XQRS visor mechanism making visor swaps effortless.
Also featured is a removable sun visor, breath deflector and chin strap protection, with removable liners and a quick release helmet retention system. Available in sizes XS-XL, the “Bubble” design I have has an RPP of $369. Along with the GT4 Iridium Blue visor with an RRP of $129 and the fog resistant Pinlock 70 lens with an RRP of $59.
Macna Imbuz Jacket
Featuring a strong 500D (denier) Polyester outer shell with a detachable Raintex waterproof membrane, the Imbuz also has a Hoody holder and air vents front and back. You can trust the build quality and safety of the Imbuz with its Shoulder Safetech CE level 2 and Elbow Safetech level 1 protectors and a CE back protector prepared pocket fitted with a 12mm EVA foam pack pad.
Further features include Zipgrip Straps on the waist and cuffs, a coat hanger loop and an Easy Cuff which ensures easy removal of the mesh liner. Available in bright blue with fluoro yellow highlights or green/black with fluoro yellow highlights, the Imbuz jacket retails for $349.95.
The Macna Individi are a slim fit pair of jeans with a bike touch. The stretch accordion panels around the knees and backside add comfort and give the jeans a rugged look. The Individi are designed to blend in with normal clothing and will look great on and off the bike.
Topped off with Aramid reinforcements with Safe Tech CE protection at the knee and a CE hip protector. The Individi have a bunch of features to keep you safe in the event of an accident, you can pick them up for an RRP of $299.95 in sizes 30-42.
Utilising goat leather for its suppleness and neoprene on the sides of each finger which Macna say provides maximum feel and dexterity, the Atmos glove have high air flow Polyester Tricot, double layer padded leather on impact areas, carbon knuckle protection and micro Velcro closure strap.
These gloves have been manufactured to meet and exceed the stringent new European CE safety standard EN13594, for that extra peace of mind. Available in men’s sizes S to 3XL, you can pick up the Atmos gloves in Black for an RRP of $99.95.
