For the start of the 2016 season, this globetrotter is available in the new colours blue/grey and black/red. The suit’s essential new feature is not immediately obvious: from now on the BMW Rallye suit is made of the new material ProTechWool. This modern, sophisticated fabric – a mixture of synthetic fibre and technical wool – is highly breathable, dries quickly and has excellent thermal conduction properties. All in all, ProTechWool provides an improved climate and more pleasant wear properties. A carbon fibre finish compresses the fabric, giving it increased abrasion resistance.
The New BMW Rallye suit is essentially designed for off-road riding and lengthy tours in summer temperatures. But if the supplied waterproof insert is zipped in, the suit’s range of use can be extended to include cooler temperatures and bad weather, too.
This new version of the massively popular BMW Rallye suite feels lighter and softer than the previous version, but the spec also includes adjustable and removable back, shoulder, elbow, hip and knee armour plus numerous vents, adjustment and pockets. It even has removable sleeves and a hydration bladder pouch on the back. Perfect for the Sahara. Or the B616 (more likely).
