The Trialmaster is an old favourite. A classic, belted, four pocket jacket based very closely on the style of jacket that was made popular by trials riders in the fifties and sixties. It was worn by factory test riders as well as competition riders like Sammy Miller and Bud Edkins. Che Guevara also famously wore a Trialmaster on his South American adventure that was written about in his famous Motorcycle Diaries.
The Trialmaster jacket is made from heavy duty 10-ounce wax cotton and has a waterproof, seam-sealed membrane made from a material known as Miporex. The outer layer is wax cotton which is water resistant but not really waterproof, and whilst there is no motorcycle jacket that can ever lay claim to being 100% waterproof, the Trialmaster 2.0 is an improvement over its predecessor.
The inner layer has a ‘de rigueur’ tartan or plaid lining, and the collar and cuffs are lined with corduroy which provides extra comfort. The sleeves are lightly padded for warmth but, to keep the rider’s body warm, there’s a heavy-duty 150 gramme, quilted Micro-Valtherm gilet that can be unzipped when riding in the summer. When it comes to protection, the Trialmaster 2.0 has the very latest CE approved D3O armour in the shoulders and elbows; this armour is light and very malleable, yet it becomes super tough on impact. There’s a pocket in the back for a back protector, which we can supply to the Level 1 or the Level 2 standard (Level 2 is thicker and heavier, obviously).
All pockets on the jacket have waterproof flaps and there is also an internal pocket. The neck and cuffs are adjustable, and the shoulders and elbows both have quilted patches over the base wax cotton outer for added abrasion resistance.
All in all, it’s a beautiful jacket. It’s more expensive than the old version but it is, without doubt, a better, more technical, more wearable and more protective item of motorcycle apparel.Heavy 10-ounce wax cotton.Product Code: BEL092
