webBikeWorld Spidi Firebird Jacket Review

Discussion in 'Motorcycling News' at netrider.net.au started by NetriderBot, Jan 10, 2016.

  1. The brand-new Spidi Firebird jacket is a looker with a protective inner secret.

    There's a full complement of gen-u-wine CE certified (not just approved) elbow and shoulder protectors underneath that cool exterior.

    And you can even plug in a Spidi EN1621-2 Level 1 and Level 2 certified "Warrior" back protector insert for more protection.

    The elbow and shoulder protectors are EN1621-1 certified, with the Spidi "Multitech" type for the shoulders and high-end "Forcetech" for the elbows.

    No one will ever know any of this is lurking underneath that feel-good Nubuck leather though.

    In fact, the protectors aren't that noticeable when you're looking for them and they pretty much disappear once you put the jacket on.

    Quite simply, you could wear the Firebird into a restaurant and no one would think that you just stepped off a motorcycle.

    And the jacket looks so good, you'll probably want to wear it off the bike more than on.

    It's not all about style though, because the Firebird is cozy warm also. The sheepskin collar is a genius idea that gives it the crowning touch.

    Spidi really hit it out of the ballpark with the Firebird jacket. It's a brand new release and not yet in stock at many of the Spidi retailers.

    But when it hits, expect a sellout. So if you want one, get that credit card ready!
