Vanson ‘Baja’ warm climate with CE protectors The air-cooled Vanson ‘Baja’ is a belted hip length fully ventilated warm climate/summer riding jacket in wax cotton. It is available with Vanson’s current generation of patented race track derived Grand Prix Floating Armor System (F.A.S.) hard armor. Assembled at Vanson, the armor pieces are made of a hard thermoplastic disc sewn to closed-cell impact-absorbent polyethylene foam, laminated to Velcro pile on both sides for strength and rigidity. The edges are encapsulated in their 3.5 ounce leather for added protection from the edges of the plastic shell. The F.A.S. - shared with the current generation of Soft Armor - prevents the forces of landing and sliding causing the jacket to pull away from the rider in an accident; the F.A.S. feature allows the armor to stay in position. The CE approved armor for the elbows and PARTS AND ACCESSORIES shoulders is pre-installed with the back pad (a row of hard thermoplastic scales fastened with medical rivets to the same foam backing) installed as standard equipment. The leather covering on the belt buckle protects the gas tank. It has a leather lined collar, quilted shoulders and elbows, brass zippers with black snap caps, two interior zip-close secure wallet pockets, a ventilated mesh lining, a zip- close exterior chest pocket, ergonomic two-way lower front pockets (top loading and side entry), inner wind flap and full front length outer storm flap. Available black and tan it is a low maintenance, ‘hose-off’ clean jacket that is individually hand made in-house at Vanson’s New England workshop.

Made in three different heights, riders and passengers will immediately notice the difference that these fully tested VStream Windscreens make for these models. VStream gets its name from its unique patented shape. The advanced “V” profile and dimensional contours push the wind vortex out and away from the rider's helmet, resulting in a quieter and less turbulent riding environment. Made from tough, high quality 4.5 mm Quantum hardcoated polycarbonate using National Cycles’ state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, the company says that they “provide outstanding clarity, impact strength and scratch resistance - unmatched by any windscreen maker worldwide. Quantum hardcoated polycarbonate is the material of choice for serious motorcycle riders. “It is 10 times more abrasion resistant than FMR hardcoated polycarbonate, and 30 times more than windscreens made from commonly used acrylic or “aircraft plastic”. We back that up - all our polycarbonate windscreens are protected by a 3-year warranty against breakage.” Available in a low with dark tint, standard height with a light tint and tall in clear.
