The Spidi Metal Jacket combines 80s fashion with 21st century protection.
Begin Press Release:
Protected: SPIDI → METAL
Metal is a motorcycle leather jacket characterized by strong references to the 80’s, enriched with four frontal pockets with contrasting zip. Tailored using barrel washed leather, which donates a unique smoothness, offers standard Warrior Lite protectors on shoulders and elbows.
Despite the supple finishing of this peculiar hide, Metal reached outstanding results on the Martindale testing machine, that SPIDI uses into its Safety Lab to evaluate the performances of each and every single product of the collection. And while leather is the outer shell of the jacket, a complete kit of the new EN1621-1 certified Warrior Lite protectors are placed to provide impact absorption where needed most; also the optional EN1621-2 Lev.1 and Lev.2 Warrior back protectors can be easily added as optional features of this garment.
On the inside it features a removable thermo lining made with Primaloft®, aka the best insulating wadding ever made, able to promote natural perspiration as well as a comfortable an cozy sensation on colder days.
Metal summarizes all the know-how of SPIDI’s craftsmanship, and there’s a lot about that; SPIDI indeed was born in the world’s most important district for leather processing. Tanning in the Chiampo Valley boasts roots in the fifteenth century, when farmers themselves began to tan and sell leathers, but it’s towards the middle of the twentieth century that the art of tanning invades the whole valley, thanks to the electro-mechanical development, and counting now over 700 laboratories in that industry. Almost six hundred years of tradition, innovation and research allow SPIDI to use the finest leathers from around the world, wisely worked in this district, where tanning handed down for generations.
