Klim F4 ECE Helmet Graphics: Rift & Legacy

Tony - Content Coordinator

If two paths converged in a wood, it is probably safe to say that any motocross rider worth their salt would instantly and without hesitation take the one less traveled. That is what makes them unique. That is why they are the way that they are. The thrill of the adventure, the adrenaline of the ride, and the overall possibility of taming that which has until then been un-tamed is the great allure for which we roll on the throttle with gusto! It is a call that Klim knows well, and happily answered.

Klim F4 ECE Rift Motorcycle HelmetWith the new Klim F4 ECE Rift Helmet we are seeing a few new upgrades that are designed to make the experience better for those off-roading wild-childs amongst us. By taking countless hours of data and feedback from riders of all levels, Klim has gotten to work on the F4 and improved upon it since its introduction. The Rift graphic sits atop the aerospace fiberglass / carbon fiber / DuPont Kevlar outer shell of the F4 ECE helmet and is a relatively subtle color combination. What is not subtle, however, is the ridiculously well-constructed ventilation system that has been packed into the F4 and the fact that it is widely considered to be among the top of the list when it comes to off-road comfort in a helmet.

Klim F4 ECE Legacy Motorcycle HelmetFor riders in search of something a little more visually vibrant, the Klim F4 ECE Legacy Helmet has a busy graphic, albeit in grayscale, that is rich in contrast and intersection of line and shape. While the graphic offers a different look, however, the F4 ECE helmet upon which it is based is exactly the same as the Rift. In going with the F4, riders can expect a lightweight, supremely aerodynamic, and incredibly comfortable option. This feature-rich lid is packed with techonology and design improvements such as its advanced air induction system, extensive array of exit ports, plush interior, and premium shell construction.

The off-road rider is rugged and free. They are rambunctious and hungry. They are, well, they are a lot of things actually. Klim specializes in off-road gear, they get it, and as such they have developed the F4 ECE helmet even more so that it provides riders with the experience that they are looking for when they take to the trails of the world.

Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…

Klim Dakar Jacket & Pants: Strong Willed

Tony - Content Coordinator

Going off road, and going off road hard is not for the weak minded or weak willed. It takes guts, it takes fortitude, it takes an untempered wildness and the facilities necessary to make it happen. From the years of experience that went into its construction, to the incalculable hours of time in the saddle putting it through its paces, the Dakar series of gear from Klim is able to confidently exhibit all of the above.

Klim Dakar Motorcycle JacketThe new Klim Dakar Jacket is a piece of motorcycle gear that has been tailored specifically for comfort in the saddle. Throughout its conceptualization and design, the architects of its construction never lost sight of the form and function, and it shows. With a truly rugged 420D/840D highly abrasion resistant outer shell that allows for equal parts mobility and defense in the event of a fall, the Dakar jacket is not messing around in durability. Additional reinforcements can be added to the back and elbows with upgrades in the form of Klim’s proprietary D3O armor package. From high-end ventilation, to completely removable sleeves all-together, this jacket is ready to go for all of your warm-weather, off-road adventures.

Klim Dakar Jacket Review:


Klim Dakar In The Boot PantsTo match up with the Dakar jacket, or as a stand-alone option on its own, the Klim Dakar In The Boot Pants are a robust piece of off-road gear that will stand up to the test of time and rigor. As with the jacket, these pants are all about comfort in the riding position, and as such make ample use of features such as articulation, accordion stretch panels, and overall ergonomics. In addition to the 420D/840D Cordura shell, the Dakar pants make use of heavy-duty, melt resistant leather on the interior leg areas so that hot engine parts become nothing but a concern of pants since past. In all, the Dakar pants are a protective, rugged, and extremely comfy pair of off-road motorcycle pants that will work well for you for years to come.

The Dakar gear lineup didn’t get its name by accident. It is a set of gear that is all about the challenge, and reward, that comes with ardent off-road motorcycling.

Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…

Tony - Content Coordinator

Women’s motorcycle gear is one of the areas of the industry that has seen the most advancement in the past few years. What was once seen as an afterthought, now plays a prominent role in many manufacturer’s mindsets and the amount of quality Women’s gear coming to the market has been a really exciting thing to watch. For the Fall of 2015, Klim has definitely gone that route and has a large offering specifically for female riders and outdoor enthusiasts.

Klim Women's Sundance JacketThe new Klim Women’s Sundance Jacket is a great example of something that they are definitely doing right. This is the lightest mid-layer in their Women’s lineup and is a great choice for anyone looking to get a bit more insulation, but who is not looking to go deep into an Arctic winter. With Level 1 mid-layer insulation, the Sundance Jacket is going to be a solid choice for fall afternoons and early spring mornings. The high-wicking performance stretch fleece not only helps to pull moisture away from the body, but also has been cut to a more feminine fitment and is incredibly comfy.

Klim Yukon Pullover: Functionally Fashionable

Tony - Content Coordinator

When all around you is cold, and you are warm, that is bliss. For those riders who make their way in the northern latitudes and get the full blast of accompanying weather through those dastardly winter months, the feeling of toasty warm gear on a chilly January day is one of the simple pleasures of life that is not to be overlooked.

Klim Yukon Pullover The Klim Yukon Pullover exists to make sure that folks get as much of that feeling as possible. While the original Yukon made its name based on comfort, Klim was not satisfied in leaving the bar there, and thus raised it to an even higher level in the newest version. With light-to-medium levels of insulation formed into a wear-anywhere fashionable look, the Yukon pullover works well for a variety of scenarios when the temperature drops. Specific upgrades can be seen in the durability of the main body fabric, improved stitching, and the seamless overlays of additional material in the high-wear zones.

Klim Yukon Pullover Review:


Simplicity is in for the Fall of 2015. Complex and convoluted is out. For no-hassle, all-day, cold-weather comfort, the Klim Yukon Pullover is the way to go.

Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…

Klim Dakar & Dakar Pro Gloves: Doin' Dirt Work

Tony - Content Coordinator

Ahhh, that sweet feel of dirty, sweaty hands sliding into and out of a pair of muggy gloves. Yeah, that is something that no motorcyclist ever says. The reason they don’t say that is because it stinks to have that happen. For off-road riders who want to mitigate such unpleasant circumstances, the new Klim Dakar gloves are here to help.

Klim Dakar Motorcycle GlovesThe Klim Dakar Gloves are a great choice for any rider looking for some lightweight hand protection for their off-road explorations. These gloves are super streamlined and allow you to ride on unencumbered with excessive, bulky materials while you are tearing up the trails. With TPU knuckle protection that is sleek enough to go almost unnoticed and touch screen compatible finger/thumb capabilities, the Dakar gloves are a great bang-for-your-buck option.

Klim Dakar Pro Motorcycle GlovesFor the rider in search of something a little more robust, the Klim Dakar Pro Gloves offer just that. With an infusion of leather construction into the outer shell, these gloves are a little heavier than the regular Dakar gloves. However, that added weight affords a slightly heartier set of capabilities when compared to its little brother. From the feel that comes with leather panels, to the Poron XRD padding throughout the knuckles, fingers, and wrist, the Dakar Pro gloves from Klim are the choice of off-roaders who really push it to the edge.

Getting a good grip on your bike is one of the most essential pieces of the riding equation. For off-road explorers, the Dakar series is a good bet as you dive into the endless possibilities and un-explored portions of the globe.

Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…
