PRO GuIDe LV-10 Titanium for Kawasaki Italian exhaust brand LeoVince has developed a new line of exhaust systems for the Kawasaki Z 900 and Kawasaki Z 1000 - Z 1000 SX, the LV-10 Titanium. Developed in collaboration with the LeoVince Racing Department and applying the experience gained in the Moto2 and Moto3 Championships, the LV-10 Titanium “expresses the maximum in racing technology applied to a muffler designed for Touring jacket ‘Evans-ST’ standard bikes”. The muffler and the link pipe are made using grade 1 titanium, a pure material that, in addition to guaranteeing a weight reduction of -30% compared to stainless steel, has high levels of ductility, strength and corrosion resistance. TIG welding is done entirely by hand and “underlines the craftsmanship of the product while retaining its racing DNA”. It has a sandblasted finish, laser-cut bracket and laser-etched LeoVince logo. LEOVINCE Monticello d'Alba (CN), ITALY iXS, the Swiss clothing brand owned by the Hostettler Group, has introduced the ‘Evans- ST’ 100% polyester jacket. Available for men and women, it is said to be completely waterproof, breathable and wind-resistant with a solto-TEX lining and “innovative ventilation system with four closable ventilation openings expanding the temperature range considerably”. The hard-wearing 600D Polyoxford outer material is abrasion-resistant and the light polyester mesh lining includes a water barrier; there is also a removable thermal lining. The jacket “fits perfectly thanks to the various adjustment options”, including width adjustment at the cuffs, waist and jacket hem, along with adjustable elbow and upper arm width. There are four external and three internal pockets. The elbow protectors can be adjusted in height and to the individual arm length. An all-round zip connects the jacket to all the current iXS trouser models and reflecting transfer prints aid visibility. There are five colour versions to choose from for men and three for women. The shoulder and elbow protectors have been tested in accordance with EN 1621-1:2012, level 1. There is also a pocket for a back protector (available separately), certified according to EN 1621-2:2014, level 2. Sidi ‘Rex’ Sidi Sport’s design team has created a brand new motorcycle sport boot “with a modern and futuristic look” that is said to “utilise the highest quality materials in its structure to create a boot at the forefront of technology, functionality and production quality. “The ‘Rex’ was developed through research, laboratory tests and ‘on the track’ testing thanks to Sidi’s Moto GP riders’ input, all to offer sports riders brilliant performance during their rides, and is an excellent choice for every rider who is looking for a protective yet breathable boot, with a versatile and extremely comfortable fit, not to mention an easy entry”. An innovative closure system allows a simply and quick fit - the boot is equipped with three steel cable adjustable closures with TECNO-3 PUSH rotor. The ‘push’ button allows the buckle to be lifted for more closing pressure. The shin and ankle mechanisms allow a symmetric closure; the instep mechanism ensures a snug yet comfortable fit and a single ankle support brace joins the internal and external ankle joint for more support. In the outer lower part, the ankle support brace is equipped with air vents which can be operated by an aerodynamic shaped button. The ankle support brace is made with glass fibre and nylon material. 54 SIDI SPORT S.R.L.
