END OF STOCK: DISCONTINUED LINE
WE ONLY HAVE XXL LEFT IN THIS RANGE.
WE ARE ONLY CONTINUING WITH THE NEW LIGHTWEIGHT VERSION.
We were the first company to bring out Kevlar hoodies, some years ago, but, ideally, they need a jacket over the top. The Elite Hoodie is made from race suit test passed material so does not need a jacket over the top.
WE ONLY MAKE FULLY LINED PRODUCTS OR FULLY REINFORCED PRODUCTS. FOR THE SAME REASON YOU WOULD NOT BUY A PART REINFORCED FRONT TYRE OR HELMET.
We can sell them at lower, part lined product prices because you are not paying for a retailer or a distributor, hence the wholesale-like prices.
The whole Hoodie, apart from the hood and cuffs, has been made from the same combination of race suit test passed material as is in the Elite Jeans.
The only difference is that the Titanite®is the outer fabric on the hoodie and it is the lining on the Elite Jean.
This product has been designed for people who wish to wear a quality looking hoodie on the motorcycle without having to wear a motorcycle jacket over the top.
We were the first company to bring out Aramid lined hoodies, some years ago, but they need a jacket over the top when riding on a motorcycle as the sweatshirt material is not a strong enough material to back up the aramid lining, hence why we brought out this product instead, as people want it as a jacket and not a jumper.

Caring for your Roadskin product.
We recommend washing on a cold or cool wash (20° or below), preferably by hand, using a non-biological detergent and then drip drying. DO NOT tumble dry. This helps to maintain the integrity of the cotton or denim ensuring your product lasts longer. Failure to follow these instructions may result in a weakening of the product.
Water Resistance and treatment.
This product has a waterproof membrane attached to the inside of the outer material. This is to back up the recommended spraying of Fabsil on the outside of the garment and seams. The waterproof membrane is of course sewn through when producing the garment so the seams need to be treated after a wash or heavy rain with Fabsil spray or equivalent. We recommend Fabsil, as in our own tests it works FAR better than any other product. As the water resistance of the product is subject to maintenance by the user these garments are sold as water resistant and not water proof. Saying that, these products are sold virtually everyday from recommendations of people happy with their ability in the rain, when maintained properly.
Important Information Regarding Armour.
It is very important to wear armour with these products, not just to help protect your bones but also to reduce the impact of the bone against the fabric in the key areas. The fabric is not designed to withstand impact, in the key areas, without armour.
Important Information Regarding CE Testing.
If a product is stated clearly to have a FULL CE approval it is sold as Motorcycle Protective wear. If a product does NOT state a FULL CE approval and only material test passes then it is sold as Durable Leisurewear, NOT as Motorcycle protection wear.
Although Roadskin always self regulated, most companies making bike jeans did not ie selling part lined jeans to fast bike owners etc, so due to this, European legislation has been enforced ie: all motorcycle clothing is being changed from leisurewear to protective wear by way of a new CE test pren17092. We are busy putting our products through this CE process, but until each product is proclaimed by us as fully CE approved it will continue to be be sold as leisurewear with no protection claims. When each one passes they will then be sold as protection wear, albeit at a higher price to pay for the CE.
No product can honestly guarantee against injury, we should and would never guarantee against injury even with these great products that we believe wholeheartedly in, as it could give a false sense of security to the rider.
All we can do is make the best products we can.
If a customer is expecting a guarantee or assurance of no harm or injury to themselves or anyone they must simply not purchase our goods.
Saying that we are the only company we know of, that makes clear what each product is exactly designed for and the only company that has made the stance against financial gain to NOT sell PART LINED non fully reinforced products.
Which must show people that we are not a typical company that looks to profit first, we are a company that is genuine and cares about our fellow bikers.
Due to the recent European legislation put upon us before we leave the EU: We have to get all products passed EN CE for them to be sold as Motorcycle clothing rather than leisurewear.
If any Motorcycle clothing sold has no FULL CE it is NOT protection wear, whatever they say to you. So this product is currently being tested to the current CE requirements.
We are hoping that it will pass (this can take several months) and then if so, we will be able to sell it as official protection wear, until such time this item is being sold as a leisure wear product, which means it has no claims of protection.
As from last year by law until a product can show a full CE it can only be sold as Leisurewear, this is not just us, this is the case with ALL motorcycle clothing now, we are just being honest and telling you.
So be aware, this product is currently sold as leisurewear, (which is the same as 99.9% of Motorcycle clothing has been for years) so not protection wear until it gets the CE certificate, so does not come with any claims of protection what so ever. Once the products get CE, they will, of course, have to be more expensive to pay for the extremely expensive certification process.
