The new innovative SPADA Alberta Jacket; built by real riders
SPADA is a brand that refuses to conform to the accepted notion of how affordable clothing should look and perform and never forgets that it’s ‘all about the everyday rider’
Following this ethos, the SPADA team embarked on a journey which involved tapping into what real riders look for when purchasing protective motorbike clothing.
After carrying out a series of adverts and communications in 2019 through publications and digital reach, a focus group of real riders was formed. The R & D team at Spada leveraged this opportunity to really find out what these everyday riders expect from Motorbike gear, what matters the most and how Spada can help provide the ultimate riding outfit.
For us, the brief was simple quoted Project Manager at Spada clothing “We wanted to produce a jacket that worked for riders, whatever the season or riding style. Whilst speaking to these riders, we felt there was a true gap in the market that Spada as a trusted brand in the industry needed to focus on. Evidently, we received so much constructive feedback through these focus groups, that we ended up creating two jackets instead of one" the new Alberta four-layered Jacket has been designed and produced with these riders in mind.
More about the Alberta
Built to form many layers, this modular jacket is the perfect multi-layer jacket, designed so that all layers can be used collectively or independently from each other. Developed to handle all four seasons, the Alberta has been produced for all styles of riding through all kinds of weather.
Layer 1 is a thermal gilet that can attach to the inner of the main jacket using a loop system. Layer 2 is a CE Level ‘A’ Certified mesh jacket with a five-piece CE armour. The jacket is available in a variation of colours including black, grey, or blue.
Layer 3 is a waterproof jacket that can be worn over the armoured layer to keep riders dry in wet weather and comes with both a storm flap and reflective elements and is available in black or blue.
Layer 4 is a visibility neck guard that can be worn on the top of all layers with increased visibility and additional protection from water ingress. The bib is adjustable and also comes with a storm flap and is available in yellow or orange.
The jacket can also be purchased with an Alberta pant available in both black and black/grey.
