Icon has been a household name with most US sport bike riders for quite some time now. Love them or hate them, there is no denying that they blend renegade styling, functionality, and protection in to a great package. Once known primarily for loud gear catered to the sport bike stunter crowd, they are now extending their focus to a wider variety of riding disciplines.
Icon 1000 Basehawk Jacket, they are aiming for the urban commuter, the modern-retro rider, and anyone who is looking for an understated but stylish jacket for cruising around town. This murdered out, stretchy softshell riding jacket is good looking, very comfortable, and should work very well for mild temperatures. Between the leather accents and 800D ballistic nylon in the impact areas, to the D3O in the elbows, shoulders and back, this jacket comes loaded for bear right off the rack. Not to mention it is water resistant, so it packs just enough punch to keep you dry during those passing showers that you may encounter on a ride around town.
Icon 1000 Basehawk Jacket Review:
Icon has always been a strong force in the market. The Icon 1000 line upped the ante and we think the new Basehawk raises the bar even higher. There are not many softshell riding jackets out there right now, and we expect this badboy to sell well.
