Traction Jacket

A hybrid theory

Some products are hard to define. That’s the case with the Traction jacket. This is truly a hybrid jacket, whereby you can clearly see what inspired us to design it.

Something you’ll immediately notice when observing the Traction Jacket is that it is completely made of mesh fabric. Normally, we would never consider applying mesh fabric at high-risk impact zones, but in this case, there were no objections. That’s because the Traction Jacket is made of our new and in-house developed extra strong PWR|mesh fabric. It’s a mesh that is so strong, we can safely apply it for the complete outer shell. A mesh that also has a beautiful structure, so that makes for a double whammy.

inspired by


Before a designer starts up the creative process, he or she often has a picture in his head of the intended customer, what bike he rides and where he rides it. In this case, inspiration came from a different angle. When we introduced our first Cordura® denim overshirts and jackets, the Intercept rapidly became one of the most popular styles. It’s a jacket that users wear both on and off the bike, all year round, except for summer, as it has a fixed thermal liner. Users also particularly loved the knitted cuffs, collar and waist as it keeps the wind out when things get a bit chillier. So, when the new PWR|mesh fabric finally became available to the design department, the team created a summer/warm weather version of the Intercept in just a couple of minutes. At least, that’s what they claim. But we think it took a bit longer than that!

not justfor summer

The Traction is not just for hot weather riding as it incorporates a removable wind & waterproof liner that extends the usability of the jacket from spring to fall. You can remove the liner in the blink of an eye, fold it into a small package and take it with you anywhere.

One of the best inventions since sliced bread, must be the SEESMART™ armor that came out of our lab two years ago. We know, it’s quite a claim we’re making here, so let’s apply some modesty. The second best, then. SEESMART™ CE-level 1 protectors are more than just sheets of ventilated (unique), ultra-thin (unique) and flexible (also unique) impact armor that are placed stealthily at the elbows and shoulders. They contribute to providing a fit that is second to none. Safety without the bulk of the old school impact protectors. That’s in the past. Naturally, the snug fitting Traction Jacket is equipped with these miracle pads but as said, you won’t even notice they’re inside.

When we say that you should stay “connected all the time,” we don’t mean that you should be online 24/7 and addicted to social media. What we want to tell you is that you should always try and create a secure connection between your jacket and your trousers. The Traction Jacket offers two ways to connect. There are two so-called jeans loops, positioned at the hems that will allow you to hook your jacket to your belt. A more secure connection, however is the 20cm YKK connection zipper, enabling you to establish a solid connection to our Safeway 2 Belt. All our riding jeans are designed to be used in combination with the Safeway 2 Belt, which is available in black or brown.

pick your color

We can see you wearing the black and white version on a sport bike, but we can also imagine you wearing the dark green color variant on a maxi scooter around Paris. Or we can envision you keeping a low profile with our black-on-black offering on any bike.

Whatever your riding style, we are sure you will find the Traction to be a very reliable and great-looking 3-season travel companion.
