F/S 2 x Halvarsson motorcycle safety suits XL (Euro 52/54) - California
Ignore the thread heading, just one pair of the safety pants are now left for sale. Going cheap!
These legendary pieces of kit are probably the safest thing you could cocoon your body in while on a motorcycle. They hardly ever come up for sale apart from new in stores in Europe, so this is a rare chance for people to get themselves into some top class motorcycle protective gear here in the USA, especially perfect for you riders in the Northern areas with the colder weather approaching!
The Halvarsson Safety pants are made with HiArt, a super strong material that rivals leather in most tests and in skid/abrasion tests has outshone leather by a large margin. The pants are then covered with your choice of outer layers. These safety pants come with Halvarsson Folio outer pants, a waterproof combination that is also windproof, and also has great style to them. Then for warmer days you can swap the waterproof outers with the next set of included outer pants, these being the Halvarsson Airy, a light weight stylish textile combination that feature large mesh vents for maximum airflow. The safety pants themselves also have another layer, this being a zip in layer made by outlast, a company that specializes in making phase change material that is cool when it is hot and warm when it gets cold. Both pairs of pant outers also come with a removable bib and brace piece. The pants come with CE approved armor in the knees and hips.
The pants are a size Euro 54, which Halvarsson's rate as an XL.
The safety pants themselves have an inseam of 28 inches and the waist is around 36-38 size as a guide.
PLEASE NOTE! The Folio waterproof outers have had the bottom of the legs shortened to 29".
The outer Airy pants are longer, being around 32 inches. This way the thicker HiArt material of the pants sits above your ankle, so you can wear the safety pants inside your boots and the outers over them.
There is an excellent thread here on ADVrider about these suits with comments from various owners so you can read more about them. Ride magazine in the UK did a test of these suits and gave them their highest rating as well. Follow the link I have provided below and see all the other photos I have. By the way, the pants are black, not blue as they appear in the photos!
