Enjoy the Ride!
Jackets and trousers from Cafe Racer signal the revival of the swinging 50s and 60s. The rock 'n' roll lifestyle, which was all about action, permissiveness and individuality is more alive than ever. Bobbers, flat trackers, classic naked bikes and, of course, café racers are casting their spell on more and more bikers. And the young fashion label "Cafe Racer" has the outfits to match - true to the original style but with today's functionality.

Most traditional, high-quality outer material with cult status for motorcycle clothing and accessories. Unmistakable in its natural, high-quality look, the strong image, ideally suited to both figure-hugging and highly functional designs. The biker's "second skin" still has the edge over any textile material when it comes to safety and resistance to abrasion and tearing. The way the material stretches as the clothing is worn means that leather clothing adapts to the body contours ideally, thus also guaranteeing that protectors fit optimally. Leather clothing should therefore always be bought with a close fit. Impregnation, leather oil and surface coatings guarantee good weather protection and a degree of rainproofing, but unfortunately also limit the breathability. Relatively heavy, but enthusiasts value this as a "quality feature". Looked after properly, it is very durable. Because leather does not itself offer much thermal insulation, the other features of the garment, or the base layers of clothing, must provide some help here.
ISO 4916 safety seam
Motorcycle clothing should offer you the best possible protection if you take a tumble.
If you slide across a rough asphalt surface, an abrasion-resistant outer fabric only helps as long as the seams can take the strain. This is why the safety-critical seams on many Louis products are manufactured according to the ISO 4916 standard, that is to say with a visible and a concealed seam. This means that the material will still hold together if the visible seam is torn open by friction.
This clothing has a connecting zip.

A truly classic cut, this sporty short jacket gets its final touch from the matt, soft slightly sanded leather in an interesting shade of grey, the subtle, embroidered brand lettering and the double zip for adjusting the width of the front. And there is even enough room underneath for a warm jumper!

A generous front overlap and a collar which lies close to the neck provide ideal protection from draughts.
