New to Slick Revolution this month. 

We have been on the search for an armoured jacket for some time. There are some pretty expensive options out there which leave a lot to be desired in terms of fit and design. Slick Revolution are pretty adaptable and usually if something doesn’t exist we go out and make it. Enter stage left, MERLIN!

Merlin are well renowned within the motorbiking industry and if there is one thing they know about in the motorbike industry, it’s safety. Slick Revolution now stock the Merlin Axe Riding Jacket. They call it a shirt, but its button up, zip up and more of a jacket. We didn’t want to invest our own time and resources in to designing a new jacket when one was already available from a UK based company.

Why we went for Merlin:
