2020 has started dynamically, with many manufacturers announcing their new products for motorcyclists. What about Icon? Of course, Icon did not stand aside! The company has released a new track suit and at first glance it is clear that this is a continuation of the Battlescar series, which is loved by many! How glad it is that Icon does not stop developing this line!
We talked about the Battlescar series in detail in the articles:
“Icon Battlescar Sand Quarry Champion – Becomes a Legend”
“Soldier of Fortune from Icon with Battlescar 2”
Now do you understand why many were really delighted with the appearance of another, fundamentally new model for their series? The soldier of fortune has reached another level – more speed, more risk, more cost of victory!
Hypersport Battlescar Jumpsuit Materials
Icon already has experience in making track suits. This model is made of the highest level of cowhide processing – TracSpec ™. It is 1.1-1.3 mm thick leather with a high grain content and uses a pigmented outer surface.
For better equipment flexibility and pilot comfort, the leather is combined with textile and elastic inserts that stretch on four sides, as well as perforations for better breathability.
This approach to materials makes the new Hypersport Battlescar competitive among other professional overalls.
On the subject of materials, you cannot miss out on shockproof protective inserts. Naturally, this is D3O! Removable inserts are located on the most traumatic parts of the body – shoulder, elbow, back, hip and knee. On the sides of the knee we see a branded knee pad, already familiar to us from the Hypersport Suit and Hypersport2 Pant. An aerodynamic hump stands out on the back, without which it is impossible to imagine a track suit.
For rider comfort, cuffs are made of neoprene at the wrists and ankles. Everything is thought out to the smallest detail.
The model is certified and fully complies with all safety standards.
Ease of use
Icon has developed a suit with an aggressive fit and it is immediately clear that it is needed for sports bikes. It has an initially curved outline along the arms and legs. The company expects their improvements to help motorcycle riders feel more comfortable at higher speeds. Anatomical cut provides a snug fit.
Convenient top zip secures with a clasp.
Icon has stayed true to its design, with unique styled stripes on the biker’s chest. What is a soldier without decals? Camouflage paint combined with black accents creates a distinctive look that matches the Battlescar vision and the spirit of the race track warrior.
