Employing exclusive BMW technology, the 2009 CoverAll Suit is guaranteed to be a hit with the daily commuter. The brand new one piece ensemble fulfils a number of commuter requirements given its practical design, enabling the rider to wear it over any kind of clothing including a business suit.Whilst remaining light, modern and comfortable, the practical design of the CoverAll is unbeatable. It can be slipped in and out of in a matter of seconds with effortless ease due to a long front zip and two side zips running from hip to ankle. Additionally, the waist is adjustable by means of straps at the side.
To increase the CoverAll’s appeal to commuters, a comfortable fit and good breathability ensure that wearing work clothes underneath will not detract from the rider’s comfort. BMW has catered for this, using optimum quality materials such as Cordura 500 and a climate membrane allowing moisture to leave the suit freely.
Besides practicality and comfort, the cleverly thought out design encompasses all aspects of safety, allowing the rider to feel suitably visible and protected whilst on the road. Lightweight, removable SC protectors made of visco-elastic foam with good impact absorbing properties are located on the shoulders, elbows, hips and knees while, reflective prints on the shoulders and back allow the rider to be seen when visibility is poor.
Finally, water and weather protection are of supreme importance. In order to keep rain out, all the seams are taped. Special waterproof zips can be found at the front of the suit and on the legs, where they run from hip to ankle. Waterproof pockets can also be found in the two trouser pockets, as well as on the breast and sleeve of the left lower arm ideal for storing travel items.
Every aspect of this suit has been accounted for, from safety to style to comfort ensuring the commuter will be pleasantly surprised.
The CoverAll Suit will soon be available in BMW Motorrad dealerships priced at £420. It comes in black in unisex sizes from XS to XXXL.
