    Sports bike specific textiles

    I must replace my Textiles from 2010 mainly with an eye on touring inc the NC500.

    Anyone have an idea on the best jackets with a neckline suitable for a Sports Bike, big collars get in the way of a helmet on a sports bike, so thinking something with a neoprene neck or something like that?

    Ideally I want a matching set, wearable in all seasons. Budget no more than £800 for a suit (which precludes Rukka straight away) (I need to get some new touring boots too )

    I've found the RST adventure range to be excellent value for money, adaptable and practical for all weather conditions and perfectly comfortable for use on a Sports bike

    I’ve been using the RST Ventilator suit for last few years,cut for sportsbike use,dry and warm. Jacket doesn’t interfere with head movement,just need to use a neck tube on really cold days.

    Have a look at these, https://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/mot...nt_prod/107043

    Or better still these are the boots I wear, Goretex all the way, https://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/mot...nt_prod/216831

    Wider fit works for me and my metatarsals!
    I thought TCX were supposed to be better in this regard so was going to look at them or Daytona’s.

    Its rubbish that the industry doesn’t look after different foot shapes when boots are so unforgiving. (Excluding expensive m2m solutions)

    I have wide feet and find my TCX boots pretty snug, I certainly wouldn't want the boots any narrower

    Daytona are certainly amenable to wide feet.

    I have rather wide feet and am very happy with my Daytona Evo Voltex Gore-Tex boots, I find them to be an excellent all-round sport boot that is all-day comfortable on the bike (wouldn’t want to walk too far in them though).
    Alternatively, if you were interested in something a little less sporty, you could consider the Daytona Strive Gore-Tex boot. This could be a good combination for you if you already have a non Gore-Tex sport boot?
