The Spidi Fandango motorcycle jacket is a new release from the Italian gear manufacturer born of a collaboration between them and iconic French magazine Cafe Racer. They co-developed the jacket to have heritage styling combined with the very best of modern safety technologies – resulting in a best-of-both-worlds design that wouldn’t look a whisker out of place outside the Ace Cafe in 1964.
The exterior of the Fandango is made from hard-wearing 1.1mm full-grain cowhide, the elbows and shoulders are pre-fitted with EN1621-1 certified Multitech protectors and there’s a back pocket for a EN1621-2 Level 1 certified Warrior back protector (sold seperately). The jacket has 3 front pockets and 1 rear glove pocket, adjustment straps on the sides, a pant clip for attachment to trousers, bellowed shoulders and pre-curved sleeves for comfort.
