Look cool, take a hot ride! New items in the 2008 rider equipment range.

Anyone who loves the experience of motorcycling wants to be perfectly equipped too – after all, freedom on two wheels makes high demands in terms of clothing. This is why BMW Motorrad offers rider equipment: every item is perfectly conceived for its purpose, skilfully crafted and made from the very best materials – with new products every year. Find out about the new features of the 2008 rider equipment range!

Speeeeed! The new Sport helmet.

Weight, comfort, features – with the new highly aerodynamic integral helmet Sport the most important part of your body is well looked after in every way! There is a neck pad and the wide viewing field at the side of the double pane provides and extensive field of vision. At around 1,380 grams the helmet is a real lightweight. And with its attractive exterior it is quite an eyecatcher, too: six decor variations from Night Black to Magma and White metallic provide an enticing range. The exclusive interior fittings in moisture-transporting material have a modular structure and can be adapted to different situations – the chin spoiler and neck pad can be fitted as required, making the summer trip breezier and the motorway run extremely quiet.

Sound and style – the System 5 helmet.

The System 5 helmet is also an acoustic miracle, characterised by phenomenal aeroacoustics: with a noise level of just 86 dB(A) at 100 km/h it is one of the quietest folding helmets on the market. With the two new colour options Black non-metallic matt and Silver White it is an impressive alternative not just in terms of technology – after all, looks are important too.

Street credibility – both on and off the bike!

Want to cut a great figure in your gear? Of course! That’s why those with an eye for fashion like the laid-back trousers City Denim in classic blue jeans style - after all, they are great for everyday wear too. In combination with items from the Lifestyle collection with its updated colour range or the extra light Sneaker 3 shoes, you are simply up to date – with or without your motorbike! The City boots are especially elegant: modern leatherwear for urban use, with rubber soles, ankle protection and shaft reinforcement. Conquer the concrete jungle - even on foot.

Stars with a new look. The suits Tourance 2 and Atlantis 4.

Style is a matter of taste, but in extreme weather conditions the second skin has to live up to particular functional demands, too. For this reason, BMW Motorrad has subjected existing items to further development – and the weather can do whatever it wants. Thanks to its windproof and waterproof climate membrane and active breathing layer, the suit Tourance 2 maintains a perfect climate in the saddle. With the Atlantis 4 suit - a classic in a new look - you can stand up to the most adverse climatic conditions: the all-weather touring suit in fast-drying cowhide nubuk leather is sealed by taped seams and rubber-covered zips in such a way that no additional weather clothing is required to stay dry. And if the thermometer drops below zero, the highly insulated waterproof and windproof ProWinter 2 gloves are sure to keep you warm.

Some riders look for riding conditions with a difference. So enduro fans will welcome the newly developed Cross gloves, since they provide a perfectly light, elastic fit for the hand. There are also gel pads in the palms and thumbs for excellent holding. A solid grip to get you over every terrain.


Second skin. The new Sport suit.

Speed enthusiasts choose the new two-piece black and white Sport suit in abrasion-resistant cowhide nappa leather. Reinforced with stainless steel protectors at shoulders and elbows and fitted with exchangeable hard plastic protectors in the knee area. Stretch inserts and perforated areas ensure maximum wear comfort on the track. In short: pure dynamic performance with pre-formed sleeves and knees providing a perfect fit. As a robust match, the Sports boots in 1.6 mm special synthetic leather are recommended. With functional lining, reinforced intermediate sole and large protectors. The set is rounded off with the light gloves Pro Sport 2 – naturally made of cowhide leather and fitted with hard plastic inserts and pads.

Innovation – intelligently packaged. The Neck Brace System.

Since safety aspects generally attract high attention in connection with motorcycling, BMW Motorrad has developed the innovative Neck Brace System. It reduces the tilt angle of the head in the case of major impacts within a controlled area, thus significantly reducing the risk of injury in the cervical spine area. A new and very practical feature is that the system can be permanently integrated in the jacket of the Rallye 2 Pro suit! Insert it once and you have enduring protection.
