The AXE 2 Kevlar Motorcycle Shirt is a product we’ve covered in previous months, and it’s always garnered huge attention thanks to it’s clever integration of both DuPont Kevlar and pockets for elbow, shoulder and back armour (either CE grade 1 or 2).
Externally, the AXE 2 looks almost indistinguishable from regular street wear – although it doesn’t offer quite the same protection as a full motorcycle jacket, it does offer a lot more protection than a regular flannel shirt – so it’s become very popular with urban riders.
