Vanucci HiRider II Textile Jacket
Ladies and Mens
Manufacturer details: Vanucci
The premium brand from Louis
The Vanucci name is synonymous with premium motorbike clothing for sports and touring bikers who value the highest quality. The collection includes everything from enduro suits for travelling round the world and sporty leather suits for speedy laps of the race course, through to neck warmers and touring boots. Whether you prefer leather or textile, every Vanucci garment offers high-quality materials and high-tech features, such as Sympatex and Outlast, combined with distinctive Italian styling plus all the experience and passion of designer Enrico Vanucci. The same applies to the intelligently designed and sturdy Vanucci luggage systems.
High-quality and abrasion-resistant polyamide-polyurethane fabric mix. The polyurethane fibres lend the fabric elasticity for optimal wearing comfort and enhanced freedom of movement. This material has a very pleasant feel and a special surface texture.
Basic function: Exploiting a temperature gradient, perspiration is wicked away to the outside, yet wind and rain cannot penetrate. This effect makes both textile and leather clothing highly weatherproof, and also very comfortable to wear.
The membranes are manufactured from different base materials, depending on the brand, and are made either as a loose "liner", as a laminate (bonded to the outer material), or as a coating on a carrier material.
The SympaTex membrane is made of polyester, and transports water vapour molecules outwards by means of chemical reactions. Different materials are tailored to the various applications in the field of motorcycle clothing.
All climate membranes are sensitive to mechanical damage: if a membrane is pierced, clearly it can no longer provide protection. Damage can also result from the use of inappropriate washing agents. Softeners, including those contained in detergents, damage the membrane irreparably!
Originally, the Outlast PCM (Phase Change Material) technology was developed for NASA, in order to protect astronauts from temperature fluctuations. Today Outlast materials find a wide range of applications, which include increasing the comfort of clothing, shoes and accessories used by motorbike riders. Breathable Outlast products compensate for temperature fluctuations, and significantly reduce sweating. Outlast products contain Outlast Thermocules. These microcapsules actively adapt to the body climate, reducing overheating and chilling, therefore protecting against sweating and freezing. The process is repeated indefinitely: if it gets too warm, the Outlast Thermocules absorb excess heat, which is returned to the body when needed. This change takes place within a temperature range that corresponds to the ideal skin temperature. The result is a constant micro-climate at the skin, significantly improving the level of wellbeing.
