About Hein Gericke Motorcycle Trousers
Hein Gericke is Europe's largest and best known supplier of motorcycle clothing and accessories from helmets to panniers. Operating out of Leeds, they have established outlets throughout the UK and all over the continent - in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, and Italy. Since their founding in 1970, Hein Gericke has always and consistently strived for innovation, quality and, above all, function.
In keeping with the company's motto to "Feel the Ride", Hein Gericke trousers have a reputation among motorcyclists for being especially comfortable.
The TRG Desert Sheltex Pants, for instance, have an easily adjustable Velcro belt to prevent off-bike slippage for any body type. The knee protection can also be adjusted to fit snugly and not too tightly whilst the legs are bent in riding position, unlike many other brands. A breathable wicking mesh fabric significantly cuts down on perspiration, even in hot sunshine, and zip vents on the thighs offer additional air flow. They are also functional with large and numerous pockets and, despite the implication of the name, they are reliably waterproof. The Boost range has been especially praised for this attribute, keeping riders dry in extremely rainy conditions.
For additional weatherproofing and breathability, many Hein Gericke trousers, including the Torinio and Stadler, incorporate Gore-Tex lining.
If you're particularly attached to your existing motorcycling trousers but want to benefit from Hein Gericke's innovative dependability in wet conditions, a pair of Blizzard Rain Pants are excellent value for money. They are waterproof, windproof, warm in most conditions, and with a carrying bag they can be kept for use when needed in a pannier or holder.
