Icon 2013 Textiles - Anti-Baking Techniques

Perhaps the most functional category of riding gear, textiles often take a back seat to flashier pieces, like leather jackets or carbon helmets. Icon swiftly solves this problem, making sure that their textiles offer just as much flash for your money.


Talk about color! The Icon Anthem Mesh Jacket comes in Blue, Green, Red, White, Grey, and the obligatory Black. Made from Icon's breathable and abrasion-resistant Fighter Mesh material, the Anthem Mesh Jacket functions as your personal A/C unit, while still blinding people with bold colors and undeniable style. The Icon Anthem Mil-Spec Jacket is also available in a High-Viz version that comes with an ID-tag holder.

A perfect pair, the Icon Anthem Mesh Over Pants use the same Fighter Mesh chassis for maximum venting. It is important to note that these are meant to fit over top of your 'civvies' as they are sized as overpants. Adjustable armor and zippered side pockets complete this pant as a solid piece of functional apparel.

Did I say pair? I meant trio! The Icon Anthem Gloves compliment the bright colors of the jacket, with High-Viz, Blue, Red, White, Grey, and Black colorways. High-flow mesh defines these gloves, while a goatskin palm allows for superior feel of the controls.

The most lightweight option available, the Icon Hooligan Riding Jersey is meant for those baking climates where an egg isn't the only thing that can be cooked on the sidewalk! While the material flows a ridiculous amount of air as it stands, the bottom half of the sleeves can be zipped off for even more ventilation. Even with all this air, the Hooligan Jersey still comes with CE-Rates Elbow and Shoulder protection and has a spot for the Stryker Back Protector as well.

Loitering isn't just for those pesky kids! You and your moto-gang may be proficient at this as well! For many desiring a casual option and also echoing the need for lightweight gear, the Icon Hooligan Denim Jeans will be a comfortable solution. Its relaxed fit and denim chassis fits the bill as a casual pant, while the Aramid reinforced knees and Field armor knee protectors make it suitable for riding as well.
