Spartan is launching a slew of products in the coming months such as touring jackets, helmets, etc.

My jacket is due for a replacement and I'm waiting for them to launch the new variant in their range of jackets. I may also replace my SparX helmet with one of their offerings.

MotoSport.com now ships Bike gear to India from the US.

http://www.motosport.com/IN/motorcycle/gloves

May be worth buying considering the awesome prices on some stuff.

This jacket normally sells for $224 but, was available for a mouth watering price of $106 inclusive of free shipping which translated to INR 6,500
Yipeee. My jacket has arrived last week in Boston

Been wondering what to buy in the sea options available on the web.
Akhil - since you are in Bangalore - you should simply walk into the Dainese showroom @ Orion mall for these.

Guess this has been available for some time. And the shipping costs are still high

Now isn't that a coincidence. Ordered the Laguna leather jacket in may and got it after a month, courtesy India post. Paid $129 plus $40 shipping. Customs duty was 2k rupees (don't know why and how they calculate)

All in all, it's a great jacket although in the Bombay humidity, it just kills you after about twenty minutes of wearing it

Here's a selfie along with my LS2 helmet. Look a bit like a poweranger, as per the better half.

Where did you order it from? Is that a L or XXL? Indeed thats a coincidence for sure

But, iam surprised that you living in Mumbai have ordered a leather jacket as i have one and I cannot survive on it for more than a few minutes. Its simply not for our weather ( maybe ride for a few weeks in peak winter)

That's a 3xl (us 52) and it just about zips up. Go for a bigger size if you as these jackets for really tight around the waist.

It was on a closeout on MotorcycleGear.com.

Yikes, As you can see I have already ordered and got delivery of a 2XL and Iam hoping the textile version is bit more accomodating after removing all the liners etc.

Keeping fingers crossed

Should be fine. The textile should be more stretchy. And you should be fine. I'm much bigger than you and I have a 3XL so don't worry.

You absolutely cannot ride with the liners in India, since you'd probably have a heatstroke. 😃

Enjoy the jacket. Get the rest of your gear in the US if you're going to be there. Much much cheaper and the quality is way better.

I highly doubt you can fit it into the boot of access/activa and have any usable space left. If anything it would be a very tight fit.

No idea about the SPG boots as there was not any even on display at the Bangalore store where i bought the gear. There was Tourmaster available on display and also with a discount of 3k on them. So went for it and am very happy with them so far with around 1200 kms of use.

Happy to help bro!
Damn! So after you reach wherever you are travelling to, what do you do with the jacket, helmet and pants? The helmet can be locked to the bike, but if even in a large backpack, the jacket and pants won't fit, what is the best solution to this problem?

Any timeframe on when these will be launched? Should I get the Hyperion/etc or wait for their new range?

Try Let's Gear Up! Their FB page seems to show that they have SAS-Tech and other armour available. There is also a biking shop on Church Street but I am not sure if they have armour.

Dainese has awesome stuff (expensive though) I'd choose Dainese over any other products for its sheer quality.

No exact details on that since currently the new range is under testing. It could take a couple of months for them to hit the shelves.

Default SOL Helmet

Bought this SOL helmet from a friend who bought it and was leaving abroad for couple of years, He never got a chance to use it. Paid 4200 appx and took it from him. Dont have direct pics of the helmet, but here are few pics from the rides. Its the one with LED lights at the back, boon for night time riding.
