Premium Equipment for Globetrotters.
BMW Motorrad understands that Life should be an adventure and on a motorcycle it feels that much more intense. This is why the 2018 BMW Motorrad Rallye Suit contains special highlights that reflect the “Make Life a Ride” philosophy down to the last detail.
The next generation of the Rallye Suit comes with a whole range of new features that make it perfect for globetrotters and off-roaders who attach importance to uncompromisingly reliable equipment. With two fresh colour combinations: (Black/Blue/Red) and (Grey/Blue) – the Rallye Suit is once again an apparel must have for any off-road rider for the 2018 season.
The Rallye suit is suitable for off-road use and is made of Pro-Tech Wool. This functional fabric consists of polyamide and wool with a carbon finish: it is compressed under pressure and heat, thereby making it highly abrasion resistant. Ceramic dot prints at the elbows and knees provide additional protection, and there are also CORDURA underlays in the zones that are at risk in the event of a fall, namely shoulders, hips and buttocks. Removable NP2 protectors and the new, larger-sized NP Pro back protector complete the suit's safety features. The jacket is perfectly compatible with the unique chest protector, which comes in two sizes.
In high and medium temperatures the Rallye suit benefits from a new ventilation system. The large-area mesh construction at the back can be opened entirely if necessary, while mesh ventilation at the front and zips at the sleeves and thighs allow ventilation and air extraction for excellent climate comfort.
The Rallye suit is fitted as standard with a waterproof insert to button into the jacket and zip into the trousers. The double function of the new jacket insert is a genuine innovation here: it is designed for use as a fully-fledged outer garment in its own right. With its highly rugged finish it can be worn over the suit, providing effective protection from dirt and rain. The trouser insert is fitted with the well-established Comfort Mapping, with membranes that vary to suit each individual area of the body.
At the front, maximum storage space is provided by two waterproof hip pockets with flap, while above these there are two small storage pockets and two chest pockets. One new feature is the small, concealed inner pocket at the rear waistband which is perfect for cards and cash. Slit pockets with fleece on the left and right allow interim hand-warning, while at the left sleeve there is a zip pocket with window. The seat pocket is divided into two sections. The back pocket is prepared for the TrinkPak Hydra including drinking tube duct to the chest area. Any items that have not yet found a place will fit in the spacious cargo pockets at the thigh. A perfect fit for every area of use: the Rallye suit offers lots of options for width adjustment and individual adaptation. The trousers now feature a rugged textile belt that is continuously adjustable, for example. Pre-shaped sleeves and knee sections in the suit and insert support an optimum seating position. Stretch zones above the buttocks and in the inner leg area provide freedom of movement, while the extended leather patch on the insides of the knees make the suit more hard-wearing – as well as ensuring a solid grip on the fuel tank. The sleeve and leg end widths can be adjusted by means of velcro fasteners and the connecting zip between the jacket and trousers measures 40 centimetres.
Reflective material for good visibility is to be found at the front and back of the sleeves as well as on the sides of the trousers.
The Rallye suit is available for men in the sizes 46-66, 98-118, 24-32 (colour combination black-blue/red) and 46-60 (colour combination grey/blue) as part of the 2018 BMW Motorrad rider equipment range.
