Klim is a relative newcomer to the world of motorcycling but as an established premium snowmobile clothing manufacturer the company has wealth of experience in producing high specification technical wear. In the USA Klim has become the brand of choice for many off road riders and has received awards from Dirt Rider magazine for its products.

Aimed at the enduro and adventure rider, the Traverse jacket and pants are designed systematically from the base layer up to provide maximum comfort and moisture management along with extreme durability and full waterproofing.

Specially developed 840 denier Cordura is incorporated into high wear areas and body armour insert pockets are also included - UK and Ireland distributor Adventure-Spec can provide the Traverse clothing with integrated Forcefield inserts if required (extra charge). The suit also features built in ventilation and a waterproof GORE-TEX® outer shell.

RRP £279.95 Jacket and £269.95 for the trousers (both inc VAT).

Keep a cool head with the Klim F4


Available from UK and Ireland distributor Adventure-Spec, the new lightweight CE approved version of the Klim F4 Helmet represents a significant improvement over the original and already highly acclaimed F4 model.

With an unprecedented 41 air craving intakes, the F4 creates a new standard in ventilation technology. Air flows into the helmet where it is assisted by a network of channels in the the EPS liner to maximise airflow over the entire head. The result is a dramatically cooler and drier riding experience. The WINDSTOPPER® liner can be snapped onto the comfort liner in colder weather, which will still allow moisture to be moved away from the head while preventing air from directly getting through. Safety standards have been exceeded not only through the use of aerospace materials, but also in the design. Klim has collected racer, customer and dealer feedback data to make improvements to the F4 helmet since it’s introduction. This new version for the European market has implemented these improvements and the result is a helmet that is even more comfortable and better-fitting than the original F4.

The EPS liner shape has been modified in three ways. The cranial shape at the top of the helmet has been altered to allow a better fit on a wider variety of head shapes and also helps keep the helmet positioned correctly. The three large air channels that run laterally through the helmet were already some of the deepest offered in any helmet, but we have made them deeper in this version, allowing even more air to pass over the head and out of the helmet. The plenum chamber (inside the EPS) has also had its channels deepened, allowing an overall greater bandwidth of air to pass through the EPS to the rider’s head.

  •  NON-INTRUSIVE EYE PORT INCREASES FIELD OF VISION
  •  RAM AIR-INDUCTION SCOOPS NOT ONLY MINE AIR AS IT FLOWS OVER THE HELMET, BUT HELP TO INCREASE THE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY
  •  PRESSURE CHAMBER NETWORK IN EPS HELPS TO maximise AIRFLOW OVER THE HEAD
  •  HIGH-VOLUME AIR CHANNELS ALLOW FOR MORE AIR CAPACITY INSIDE THE HELMET

‘Guard-iT’ brand sump guards for KTM LC8 Adventure by Adventure-Spec

Honed in the deserts of North Africa and piloted to victory in the Dakar rally by Fabrizio Meoni, KTM's LC8 Adventure represents the highest evolution of the 'Dual Sport' or ‘Adventure’ bike.

Some of these machines will rarely leave the tarmac, but for owners who choose to exploit the full off road potential British adventure motorcycling specialist Adventure-Spec offers its own Guard-iT Technology brand of sump guards (also known as bash plates) to protect the vulnerable undercarriage of the bike in extreme riding conditions.

Constructed with a 5mm aircraft grade aluminium centre section and 4mm side panels the LC8 Adventure bash plate is hard enough to withstand bangs and knocks without deformation, but soft enough to resist cracking or splitting under extreme impacts. The front mount features a machined spacer plate to allow a perfect fit around the curved casting to the front of the KTM’s engine and all fittings are powder coated with stainless fasteners.

Adventure-Spec has also included a useful area in the front of the bash plate to store a tool-pouch with enough room to keep additional heavier items such as chain breakers, levers and large sockets. Slots are incorporated into the box panel to allow a webbing strap to be fitted (not included).

Adventure-Spec co-owner and avid adventure rider David Lomax
says:

“Our LC8 hard parts are chosen by people who expect the highest levels of specification and performance, and have been tried and tested from the Simson Lawrence Desert to the Dakar pistes of Mauritania. We make each and every one of our parts as if our lives depended on them, because sometimes, they do!”


Compatible with 950 and 990 Adventure, Adventure S and Adventure R (all years).

Available in Black or Silver powder coat finishes

RRP £192.00 inc VAT

A variant for models fitted with the GPR 2-1 exhaust system is also available - RRP £225.00 inc VAT
