- Fabric Technologies
You’ll find a variety of fabric constructions in our range. Each developed to meet the performance requirements of our riders. Take Outlast®, its Temperature Regulating Technology is renowned worldwide as the product for temperature regulation. Outlast® technology, originally developed for NASA, utilises phase change materials (PCM) that absorb, store and release heat for optimal thermal comfort. For a ride that’s not too hot, not too cold, just right™.
Then there’s Superfabric®. This fabric is the perfect fusion of material, science and style and can be found on garments like the Navigator Jacket. We use it to give you higher levels of abrasion resistance, tear strength and stain resistance than standard base fabrics.
DuPont Teflon® fabric protector is an invisible finish that forms a protective barrier around fibres to deliver durable, long-lasting repellency against oil- and water-based stains, dust and dry oil – all without impacting on the look, touch, feel, colour and breathability of the fabric.
Cordura® fabrics can be made using 100% synthetic fibres or in blends with cotton, polyester or other fibres and are known for their durability and resistance to abrasions, tears and scuffs. 1000 denier Cordura® has an abrasion resistance equivalent even to 1.3mm competition-grade leather.
- Leather Technologies
Just as we strive towards innovation and technology to create high quality textile jackets we have sourced globally the best quality leather in the construction of our leather jackets.
For the majority of our leather we look to Brazil, which is fast becoming the number one source for quality leather due to factors such as diet and the vast wide open spaces with limited barb wire fences.
In Triumph’s sports riding product, our leather jackets have a more consistent grain structure and texture meaning great durability for all conditions. Our Classic leathers use a different process which adds to the heritage feel without compromising on quality. Whatever you are looking for in your next leather jacket or trousers, Triumph motorcycles will have a style that won’t compromise on performance.
- Light Technology
Exclusively developed as the latest in visibility clothing for motorcyclists. Triumph’s Light Jacket and Vest have Integrated LED light technology, which can be easily controlled by a rechargeable battery system to give you greater levels of visibility.
Whereas high visibility reflective materials require a light source to illuminate the LEDs are, of course, a light source of their own. One that’s also very effective even in daylight and works well with day-glow materials.
Fit & Care
- Leather Care
- Do not allow the leather to dry out. Clean the leather regularly with a mild soapy solution and condition to restore flexibility
- Excessive dryness may cause the leather to crack and the natural fibres to break up resulting in the leather weakening and becoming damaged
- Always hang the garment using a wide hanger to help maintain the garment’s shape
- Wet or damp leather needs to dry naturally away from a heat source
- In winter, regularly remove any salt deposits with a mild soapy solution and condition once dry.
- Textile Care
- Gentle wash on a low heat (max 30°C) without the use of conditioners, bleaches or brighteners, as this can damage the z-liner
- Remove the protectors before washing and ensure that the Velcro fastenings are closed
- Hang dry, away from a heat source and do not tumble dry as the excessive heat may damage the z-liner
- All textile riding garments are coated to prevent water soaking into the fabric. The coatings act to allow water to run off the fabric without soaking up moisture and preventing the garment from getting heavier and the rider from getting cold. These coatings will wear away over time, dependent on the use and weather conditions
- When the coating is wearing away then the garment can be recoated using a non-silicone based treatment that is either available as a spray or as a wash-in solution
We know that in order to ride properly, your jacket and jeans need to fit properly. Too tight and they could become uncomfortable, causing you to lose concentration, and on waterproof garments it may put additional strain on the tape-sealed seams, allowing water to penetrate.
Too loose and the clothing could flap whilst riding and the positioning of the armour may move which could compromise your safety.
Whilst wearing your Triumph T-shirt, pass a tape measure around your back and under your arms. Take the measurement from your broadest part of the chest. This measurement is equal to the jacket size you require, for example 42“ or 104-107cm equals size 42 or Medium jacket. We offer Alpha or Numerical graded fits to cater for the different requirements of our riders, for example a fully functional winter garment is Alpha fit to give more flexibility, with detachable liners, when choosing the necessary undergarments.
The chest measurements as shown on the size chart show actual jacket measurements. These have taken in to account natural ease for comfort
Measure around your waist and just above the top of your jeans. Please ensure that you are standing in a comfortable position and do not breathe in, as the jeans need to be comfortable whilst riding.
Measure around the fullest part of your backside and hips.
