Armadillo Scooter Wear is designed by scooter riders for scooter riders. Fed up with the dominance of courier chic, the founders set about creating a range of modish scooter wear that combines urban style with cutting edge fabrics to keep riders dry, warm and impact protected. With a choice of classic 60’s styled parkas to the technical hoody it is easy to shake off that pizza boy image. And to ensure that scooter riders have clothing to match the changing seasons, Armadillo Scooter Wear is extending its collection with the launch of the Spring/Summer range.

The new Spring/Summer 08 collection boasts the men’s Soft Shell Hoody and Classic Macintosh alongside the women’s Funnel Neck Jacket and Scarlett Macintosh. Not only does Armadillo bring the much-loved classic mac into the 21st century, but by reflecting mainstream fashion trends, riders can ensure they look good both on and off their scooter.

The women’s Funnel Neck Fitted Jacket is 100% waterproof and breathable. Its lightweight quality makes it the ideal companion for the unpredictable spring weather. The wonderfully bright scarlet material ensures high visibility as well as fitting easily with this year’s colourful spring/summer collections. And for men who don’t like to think too much about what to put on, the Soft Shell Hoody is sure to be this seasons key wardrobe staple. Windproof, waterproof and fully breathable, this summer’s throwover will quickly become any riders ‘old favourite’.

Exclusive to the UK scooter market, the Armadillo jackets, trousers and gloves contain ‘Intelligent’ CE approved d3o™ protection, incorporated as removable d3o™ components in high impact areas including the elbows, shoulders, and knees. d3o™ is a material containing intelligent molecules, which flow freely under normal conditions, making the material soft and flexible for maximum freedom and comfort, but which lock together on shock, providing great protection on impact.

Armadillo. Scooter wear without compromise.
