SHIFT Racing is Motorcycle Fashion
Sunday, April 26, 2009
Motorcycle USA recently dropped by the northern California headquarters for the folks at motorcycle riding gear maker, SHIFT
. Recognized for its line of trendy off-road motorcycle apparel donned by Yamaha Factory Supercross motorcycle racer Broc Hepler and freestyle motocross rider Kyle Loza, SHIFT racing is making a major push into the street and motorcycle road racing scene.
You can sleep well knowing that the folks from SHIFT are hard at it designing motorcycle riding gear that not only functions but looks cool too.
With new products like its SHIFT Vertex Jacket
and SHIFT Vertex Suit the company is really stepping up, creating a line of quality and affordable motorcycle safety gear. Having just worn its new Vertex one-piece racing suit during this year’s Superbike Smackdown
sportbike motorcycle comparison, I’m impressed with not only how cool it looks, but how it fits and its construction. Look for a full product review in the next few weeks.
Out on the street, Executive Editor Steve Atlas can be seen wearing its reasonably priced Shift Streetfighter Hybrid Jacket
. Take a peek at his product review here
and see if it is right for you.
At their Morgan Hill, California HQ we managed to distract the crew long enough for us to take a sneak peak at some of its yet-to-be released gear. And we’ve got to hand it to them, as they truly have an eye for what’s cool now and what’s going to be the next hot thing in the future. If you’re looking for some stylish new motorcycling treads that synergize the best from street and dirt scene, SHIFT definitely has the answer.
