FOR THE LOVE OF
VINTAGE RACING

We love vintage racing and have been proud sponsors of the Barber Vintage Festival for many years.

NYC, 2003

Our involvement in the scene dates back to 2003. It was the moment that we entered the US market and got acquainted with a couple of guys from NYC who were and still are seriously involved in the classic bike racing culture. We were captivated by it, so we stuck around and got more and more involved. And in the end, it also inspired us to bring you something new and very exciting.

historical brands

Although we’ve been indirectly involved in the US classic bike racing scene through our friends, we didn’t consider designing classic-specific racing gear because we thought we lacked the credibility of some of the old household brand names from the industry. Those names being Vanson Leathers and Bates from California. We felt it would be kind of awkward to claim historical relevance if we didn’t have any.

About this page

SLOW ACCEPTANCE
During the last couple of years, we’ve been gradually accepted by the classic and vintage bike scene as an apparel brand that might lack the required historical relevance, but one that brings so much technology to the track and the streets, it becomes relevant on its own merits.

WE FINALLY WORKED UP THE NERVE
The key to acceptance lies in the design philosophy that is the basic concept behind every retro and fashion-inspired product: Tailored Technology Design. This means that the outside appearance of the product is the key ingredient in the design process, but without compromising on safety and performance features. We had never applied this design philosophy to racing leathers. Until now… We’d like to introduce you the new Nova One Piece Suit.

About this page

PURPOSE BUILT VINTAGE RACING GEAR

Make no mistake, the Nova One Piece has the visual appearance of an old school suit, inspired by 1960s and 70s race suit designs, but with all the protective features, quality components and materials you might expect from a modern-day, high-performance piece of motorcycle gear. That includes: dual-comp protectors at the shoulders, elbows and knees, safety seams all over and race-spec, height-adjustable Betac knee and shoulder protectors. There’s even a speed hump that is prepared for a hydra bag. Additionally, you  

have the ability to insert the optional SEESOFT™ CE-level 2 back protector, along with the new SEESOFT CE-level 1 divided chest protectors. The suit comes standard with the ultra-thin SEESMART™ CE-level 1 hip armor. The Nova One Piece Suit is constructed using Augustini and Monaco performance cowhide and PWR | Kevlar stretch panels, resulting in a garment that is not only good-looking and has all the functional and protective bells and whistles, but one that also provides great freedom of movement.

the revmonkeeproject

The idea for the Nova One Piece Suit inspired us to create something special. We wanted to show what could be done with high-tech ingredients, so we teamed up with Copenhagen-based Nicholas and Per - aka the Wrenchmonkees.

About this page

We gave them a Kawasaki Ninja ZX 1000 H2 (one of the world’s fastest production bikes on the market) to play with and to turn it into something completely different. And something completely different it became. You could say that the REVmonkee is the result of a bike-build project based on our Tailored Technology design philosophy.

To prove that performance can work in perfect harmony with vintage-inspired design, the REVmonkee bike finished first during ‘Sunday of the Beast’ at Glemseck’s 2017 International Sprint.

Get creative

Like the Nova Vintage jacket, the design of the Nova One Piece Suit leaves ample room for your own creativity. There’s plenty of space for sponsor badges, your name and even your number. We’ve tried to keep the design as clean and simple as possible, so it is all up to you to give it a personal twist.

We would love to see what you’ve made of the Nova One Piece Suit yourself so please share some of your pictures with us. You might even inspire some of your fellow vintage racing enthusiasts somewhere else in the world.
