You’ve already drained the life out of your bank account to purchase your dream bike, if you were to drop your wallet you’re sure it would echo with emptiness, and now you have to find the money to kit yourself up as well. Sound familiar? We all know motorcycling is an expensive passion, but if you’re struggling to find the cash to kit yourself up this summer, then fear not, as we’ve found a way to help you to save some pennies.
We teamed up with Ghost Bikes to discover their latest brand Agrius, and to see what high quality kit we can buy, which won’t cost us the earth. In fact, if you’ve got £220 to spare, you can kit yourself out from head to toe and you’ll even have some change left to grab yourself a well deserved biker’s breakfast and a brew at the end of your shopping spree!
These gloves offer great summer protection. They are made with a mixture of Aniline Leather and softshell on the outside, which offers a great combination of abrasion resistance and ventilation, and the inside features a soft touch inner liner which will keep your hands comfortable. The Stealth WP gloves are also waterproof, so they’ll still provide protection during those unexpected showers, and a short, adjustable cuff and stretch panel over the wrist will help make them a perfect fit for any biker.
Buying a kit bundle is a great way to save some extra cash, and this one gives you the chance to bag a textile jacket and pair of trousers for under £100.
The Columba Jacket is ideal for adventure riding as it’s longer in length and has an adjustable fit, to ensure all-day comfort (even after a gut busting lunch). The four point ventilation system will help to keep you cooler in the heat, and it also has a removable thermal liner and fixed waterproof liner – perfect for those cooler mornings and unavoidable showers. The shoulder and elbow armour are CE approved.
The Hydra Trousers pair up well with the jacket, as they offer the same removable thermal liner and the fixed waterproof liner – the adjustable fit and the ventilation are the same too. The trousers are available in short, standard and long leg, and represent great value for money.
Constructed with a Polycarbonate Shell, this CE approved helmet is both lightweight and strong. It offers an internal, drop down sun visor which is perfect for beating the sun’s glare in the summer, and is easily operated using one hand. The lining and cheekpads are fully removable and washable, allowing you to keep them feeling fresh and clean – no one likes a smelly helmet.
Agrius Alpha Motorcycle Boots – £47.99
The Alpha Boots are packed full of features – the upper is constructed with bonded leather, which makes them strong and durable, while still giving your feet the movement needed. The insole has anti bacterial properties, meaning it’ll help keep your socks pong free, and a waterproof liner will help keep the wet stuff out if you’re caught in a downpour. Amour inserts on the ankles and shin offer further protection, while gear shifter pads help prevent the leather from abrasion when changing gear. For under £50, you can’t go wrong with these!
