1. The Right Looks - Respecting The Tradition

It looks like it was made in the good ole' days

Motorcycling is a tradition. We aren’t talking about a brand new fad that you can just piss all over and do whatever pleases you.

There’s dos-and-dont’s. If you wanna look like a clown, be my guest. But if you wanna look like a biker, you gotta look classic.

It seems like there’s a new generation of people who want to kill every single Tradition there is. I’m not ok with that.

The most recognizable Biker Look

Motorcycling is a Tradition. A Classic.

Same goes for the Traditional Biker Look.

We’re talking about true “Americana”. We’re talking about something in the league of Ray-Bans, Levi’s 501 jeans, or Hanes’ white t-shirts.

That’s why we took the looks aspect so seriously with the Classic Biker Jacket.

All of the history that was born in the 1920’s and got mainstream throughout the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s is expressed in this jacket:

  • Offset zipper for extra comfort while sitting down
  • Action-back sleeves so your arms are free to move
  • Epaulets inspired by the military

Sounds good? Check out what some of our customers have to say about the looks of Born 2 Ride’s Classic Biker Jacket:

2. Motorcycle Grade Leather - 4x The Safety Factor

Thick C-Bond Technology Leather for 4x the safety

A seasoned biker understands that riding a motorcycle is a constant battle for power. Kinda like riding a tamed bull, you can never be too confident that you’ve got it 100% under your control.

In the USA, there’s a new motorcycle accident every 5 minutes. (source) That’s 12 accidents every hour, 283 every day, and over 100,000 every single year.

About 1 in every 2 bikers involved in such accidents end up with road rash. 1 every 11 minutes, to be more exact.

These staggering numbers are the reason we do not cut any corners when it came down to creating the ultimate Biker Jacket.

Every single biker whose more protected because he or she is in one of our jackets is our biggest achievement.

The Classic Biker Jacket is made with C-Bonded Motorcycle-Grade Cowhide Leather. That means that:

  • Our hides go through the C-Binding Tanning Process, which is a chemical process that binds chrome metal to the leather, making it up to 4x safer than traditional leather tanning. (source)
  • Our jackets are made with hides that are 1.3mm thick, which is 20 to 30% thicker and safer than our main competitors (whose jackets are only 1 to 1.1mm thick)
  • All the metal parts are made with stainless steel, for added durability and crash-resistance
  • Built with a comfortable fit for a comfortable ride
  • 3 leather grade options, all of which are motorcycle-grade quality

But features alone don’t mean much, do they? Let’s see some real experiences of some of our customers:

“When I took my jacket out of the box I noticed 2 things. First the smell of fresh leather. It was like sitting in a new car and taking in that new car smell. Second was the weight of the jacket was robust and beefy. I wore it out to break in, and it was 29 degrees out and it kept me warm.”

Our attention to quality comes through on our customer reviews.

The Classic Biker Jacket is our all-time favorite, with 90% of the reviews scoring it 5 stars, plus another 8% scored 4 stars.

That means that 98 out of every 100 people who own this jacket are super happy with it.

As you can see from these few comments, when we say quality leather, we mean real quality that can be seen and felt, which will withstand nature’s elements and even unavoidable accidents. We’re not talking about an “it’s ok” kinda deal.

3. Ez-Draw Pockets - Safety for Your Carry

2 Ez-Draw Pockets, 1 on each side

Carrying a large object such as a gun on a motorcycle can be a pain, quite literally.

Traditional waistband carry is uncomfortable, as you can’t properly sit down without some serious poking.

More than that, poorly snapped holsters and road vibration have led to more than just a few people losing their gun on the road.

The Classic Biker Jacket comes with 2 Ez-Draw Pockets which are 11” deep and have elastic bands to keep the gun always in place, secure and actually concealed. No matter what.

Quick in, quick out with the Ez-Draw Pockets

That means you will be able to ride freely and painlessly. Say NO MORE to hard-to-reach holsters, awkward riding positions and even the risk of dropping your gun while on the road (nightmare!)

These secure pockets are also great to carry valuables such as wallets, cell phones, or an eventual gift to the ole’ lady (it will be a surprise, she won’t be able to spot it in the Ez-Draw Pockets!)
