Written by Em-J   

Swedish motorcycle clothing manufacturer Jofama has teamed up with Dakar contender and countryman Captain Thomas Berglund to produce a rally-ready textile suit.

The design is based on the exact kit worn by Berglund in the 2011 Dakar and incorporates a limited-edition replica jacket and a version of Jofama's  Lizard pant, in the Swedish Camo colourway. With just 500 Berglund jackets available worldwide, demand is already high.

Berglund, who's competed in four Dakars and placed 12th in 2010, has long been involved with the Swedish company's product development. "Jofama sponsors Captain Thomas Berglund in the Dakar rally each year and he is responsible for helping to design some of our products according to his experiences," explains Jofama's John Lagerway.

The jacket will retail at £134 and the pants at £139. Both are expected to hit dealers towards the end of August 2011. For your nearest UK stockist, see here
