(December 15, 2011) Scorpion's Assailant Jacket Oozes With Road Racing Attitude
Style and function are paramount when it comes to serious motorcycle gear. That is where Scorpion's new Assailant Jacket breaks into the market with an almost criminal balance of sportbike styling and racing specifications.
Roadracing-specified features include 1.2mm-1.4mm thick top-grain leather construction, Exo-Stitch™ reinforced safety seams and CE-approved ventilated Exo-Tec™ armor at the elbows and shoulders. There is also a built-in back protector compartment, complete with protective P.E. armor.
When riding conditions get a little chilly, the Assailant's fully sleeved EverHeat™ thermal liner keeps core temperatures comfortable. Conversely, the EverHeat™ liner is easily removed when things warm up. Better still, custom-perforated panels work in conjunction with Scorpion's trademarked AirVent™ system to keep air flowing throughout the jacket.
Kevlar™ stretch panels incorporated into the sleeves offer maximum flexibility while eliminating material flap from the wind even while at speed. Stretch panels at the sides and two built-in waist cinches enable the jacket to be personally tailored on the fly.
