New for 2016: The Held AeroSec jacket and trousers comes from the original thinking that led to Held’s Air n Dry gloves.
Like the Held Air n Dry gloves the Held AeroSec is effectively two suits in one. One compartment is a highly vented textile suit that’s suitable for riding in high temperatures. The other is a waterproof suit that will keep you dry when the heavens open.
For the waterproof mode, a membrane lines the arms and torso and is zipped together in front of the rider before doing up the outer shell.
The Held AeroSec jacket can then be transformed into its vented mode by zipping the waterproof lining together before putting on the motorcycle jacket. It will then sit behind the motorcycle rider and the arm sections will sit flat behind the rider’s arms. With the lining moved out of the way, it will allow air to flow freely into the jacket and trousers.
The matching Held AeroSec trousers work in the same way, with the membrane securing to the rear section to sit behind the rider’s legs.
Both are made from 500-denier Ripstop Cordura with perforations around the chest and thighs and they secure to each other with a connecting zip. There is impact armour at the shoulders, elbows and knees with options to fit protection at the back and hips.
