Care Instructions

We understand that an investment in motorcycle riding gear can be significant and we want you to get the best value for money from each purchase. Here are some DOs and DON'Ts of gear maintenance to help you extend the life of your gear without breaking the bank and get the best results.

Textile Jackets
Washing:
USE: Lukewarm water, mild detergent, brush with nylon bristles & hands
AVOID: Washing machine, metal bristled brushes, strong detergents, industrial chemical cleaners,  bleach,  etc. 

Remove the shoulder, elbow and back protectors and empty the pockets (We have found a soaking wet pair of ear phones in the pockets post the wash in one occasion). Soak in lukewarm water with a mild detergent  Scrub sticky and extra dirty parts with the brush and diluted detergent. Hand wash the rest of the jacket and rinse till the detergent is removed.

Drying: 
USE: Thick hanger and/or dry towel, electric fan
AVOID: Clothes drier, hair drier, hot gun, wind turbine etc.
Dry the jacket on a thick hanger (and may be an electric fan) or lay it down flat on a dry towel.

Winter and Rain Liner
WARNING: Do not machine wash or use hard and heavy chemicals to clean.  

Same as the textile jacket it came with; however, one could ignore the brush.  
Hand wash, rinse and repeat in lukewarm water. Hang dry using a hanger.

Boots and Gloves
Cleaning: 
USE: Plain water, mild detergent or standard leather cleaner, soft cloth or sponge, brush with soft nylon bristles, leather conditioner.
AVOID: Industrial heavy duty cleaners, scalding hot water
WARNING: Immersing and soaking the boot or glove in water for long durations may damage the leather.

Simply use a soft piece of cloth to apply mild or diluted detergent and wipe down the grime and stains.  One could use a soft brush to remove the dirt at the seams. Wipe away the residual detergent with plain water and follow it up with leather cleaner if required.    

Drying: 
USE: Electric fan (if required) 
AVOID: Clothes drier, hair drier, hot gun, strong sources of heat, etc.
WARNING: Intense heat while drying can cause the leather to harden. 

Hang the gloves or place the boots to dry in a dry & clean ventilated place. Humidity allows mold to form on the leather. Leather conditioners may be used to increase the life of the leather after they are completely dry.

Leather Suits / Jackets / Pants:

Cleaning:

USE: Plain lukewarm water, mild detergent or standard leather cleaner, soft cloth or sponge, brush with soft nylon bristles, leather conditioner.
AVOID: Industrial heavy duty cleaners, scalding hot water
WARNING: Immersing and soaking the boot or glove in water for long durations may damage the leather.

Since we are dealing with a larger surface than a glove or a boot, it is recommended that the suit be hung from a hanger on the back of a door or a towel flat on the floor (yeah we like rhymes too). Wet the soft cloth in dilute detergent or mild detergent and wipe away the grime and stains. Make sure the cloth is rinsed frequently (Duh!) and continue removing the grime. Once both the sides have been cleaned to your satisfaction, hang it dry.

Drying:

USE: Electric fan (if required)  

AVOID: Clothes drier, hair drier, hot gun, volcanic craters and other strong sources of heat.
WARNING: Intense heat while drying can cause the leather to harden.

Hang the suit to dry in a dry & well ventilated place. Humidity allows mold to form on the leather. Leather conditioners may be used to increase the longevity of the leather after it is completely dry.
