At J&P Cycles, we have you covered for every riding gear need.  Today, we want to give you our Editor’s Choice of the best overall value for money gear options for Men, V-Twin and Sport riders.  We will be showing you ensembles with a jacket, gloves and boots for each of these – all with great features that won’t break the bank.

Let’s start with V-Twin.

For this ensemble, we have the Allstate leather jacket, Speed and Strength Rust and Redemption Glove and the Milwaukee Motorcycle Clothing Company Accelerator Boot.

The Allstate jacket is made from durable cowhide leather that gives you classic style while offering stealth abrasion resistance.   The iconic chest stripe in contrast color is a sure style winner for any V-Twin rider.  Comfort features include side lacing for adjustable fit and zippered cuffs for easy on and off, and offers a secured closed position while riding.  This bad boy also features a removable zippered liner to customize a warmer or cooler ride, depending on weather conditions.  

Speed and Strength has style and protection in their Rust and Redemption glove. This glove features all leather materials, including reinforced panels at the palms and fingers for added durability.  The pre-curve in the fingers allows for a better grip on the handlebars giving you great control as you throttle up or down.  The hinged knuckle and accordion pleat at the backhand and knuckles give ease of movement and dexterity.  Placed perforations allow for added airflow while the Velcro cuff tab gives you a secured closure while riding.  

The boot that rounds out this assortment is the Milwaukee Motorcycle Clothing Company Accelerator Boot.  The full grain leather upper is durable and water resistant, with coramid leather accents on both sides. The sole has a durable welted construction, giving you confidence on the ride.  Comfort and style marry in this boot that has the Freedom Flex construction that makes the boot feel comfortably well worn from your first day of wear.   This boot has the classic fully laced look without the hassle as it offers two side zippers for quicker and easier on and off.

Out the door under $350, J&P Cycles rocks the V-Twin rider value equation hard!

And for men's sport riders, we have the ICON Contra 2 Jacket, the Alpinestars Booster Glove and the ICON Superduty 5 Boot.

The ICON Contra 2 jacket is a powerhouse of versatility.  Its lightweight mix of mesh and textile gives great airflow for hot rides, and also comes with an insulated liner to add in on colder weather days.  It has D30 armor included at the elbows, shoulders and back giving great protection coupled to the abrasion–resistant ballistic nylon paneling for the utmost confidence while riding.  

Alpinestars Booster Glove is a combination of tech and style.  This glove mixes durable and flexible goat leather with abrasion-resistant stretch polyester fabric and molded hard knuckle protection.  It also gives added dexterity and sensitivity with its stretch insert and grip panel between the thumb and palm, and accordion stretch panels at the backhand and knuckles.  The padded palm and fingers not only can absorb impact but also absorb vibration from the bike’s grips, which cuts down on fatigue in the hands while riding.  A pre-curve to the fingers also helps to give comfort and grip while wearing this glove.

The Alpinestars' patented 3rd and 4th Finger bridge adds protection to your most vulnerable digits, and Touchscreen compatibility at the index fingertip allows for easy use of GPS and smartphones.

The ICON Superduty 5 boot is a stealthy mix of function and athletic style.  The five stands for this being the 5th generation of this boot – an all-time customer favorite and for good reason.  This iteration is coated leather with superior abrasion resistance that comes on the D/L.  The inner steel shank also offers top-level protection while this model pays homage to its predecessors, keeping the hidden laces and mid-foot support strap for a super secure fit.

This comes with D30 armor insert for added ankle protection.

Out the door at $454.95 is a crazy-good price for protection and style!

And that is your 2019 Best Bang for the Buck picks for MEN from J&P Cycles.
