Tucker Powersports, which recently announced an exclusive distribution agreement with riding gear manufacturer Dainese, has started supplying U.S. dealers with the Italian company’s high-quality Dainese riding gear and TCX footwear. Initial shipments have been made to selected dealerships in the past two weeks.
“We’ve always liked the TCX brand and their products,” said Patrick Crawley, apparel manager at Morton’s BMW in Fredericksburg, Virginia, which recently received its shipment of TCX footwear. “TCX innovates and other brands follow.”
Dainese riding gear and TCX footwear will be available in increasing supplies as shipments arrive at Tucker’s distribution centers. Many of the products already in inventory at Tucker have shown to be popular with U.S. consumers.
- Dainese Air Frame D1 textile riding jacket features Quick Dry fabric with mesh panels to increase airflow. It features reflective inserts along with outer and inner pockets. It’s designed to allow the rider to use a G1 or G2 back protector and comes with a removable windproof liner and soft inserts at the neck and wrist.
- Dainese’s new Drake Air textile pants are a winner for adjustability and comfort on and off the bike. Crafted in Cordura Comfort fabric, interest in the Drake Air pants comes from its technical features, like a zipper at the bottom of the leg, the lining featuring breathable, perforated fabric, zippered air vents with VELCRO at the top of the leg and options to adjust waist fit.
- Dainese’s Air Maze Gloves are lightweight, comfortable, sports-style gloves with ventilated mesh for airflow and maximum comfort, even on the hottest days. The reinforced synthetic palm offers excellent abrasion resistance. Innovative side stitching ensures greater comfort by minimizing seams at the fingertips, and Smart Touch Inserts allow riders to use smart phones or GPS screens without removing their gloves. Air Maze gloves are unisex with a full range of sizes.
- Dainese’s Blackjack Gloves offer high performance with a fashionable vintage look. Crafted in goatskin leather with a reinforced leather palm, the gloves feature soft inserts, adjustable cuff strap, pre-curved fingers and a perforated back. Available for men and women, these gloves are perfect for spring, summer and fall riding.
A rider’s look isn’t complete without high-quality riding boots, like the waterproof TCX Blend. Made of full-grain leather with a T-DRY waterproof membrane and a vintage finish, they feature protective inserts at the ankle and a sturdy Groundtrax rubber outsole. They are available in both black and brown.
Tucker continues to add additional Dainese inventory to its warehouses for quick delivery to dealers. Riders can see their local Tucker dealer for more information on these and hundreds of other high-quality Dainese products.
