April 18th, 2014

Couriers are closed between Friday 18th till Monday 21st which may cause a delay with your delivery.

Our shop is open as usual but there will be some delays on orders placed online over the bank  holidays, below is a guide on how best to beat the delays and know when to expect delivery of your goodies!

Both Royal Mail and our Courier services will be taking an Easter break for 4 days between Friday  & Monday so no deliveries or collections will be taking place during that time.

On orders placed on our website that go our via Royal Mail (Orders that include small items or are under £25) it is recommended that you order by Tuesday to get your order delivered before the Bank holiday. You can upgrade your delivery to our courier services by calling us or choosing the option at checkout.

For orders that go via our next day courier services (orders which include helmets or boots and are over £25) we recommend that you order by 3pm on Wednesday at the latest. If you order on Thursday and opt for a Saturday delivery there is still a chance that your delivery will reach you on Sat, however we can not guarantee this.

If you miss these deadlines or you don’t get your delivery on time we expect that any delivery placed before Thursday should reach you by Tuesday the 22nd if it was a courier item or by Wednesday / Thursday if it was a Royal Mail delivery.

If you have any questions regarding delivery times don’t hesitate to email or call us, details can be found on our contact page.

Wishing you all a fantastic Bank Holiday Weekend and keeping our fingers crossed for great weather!

The Black™ team are always looking for ways to keep things fresh, and we think they’ve hit the nail on the head here. The brand new Black™ Rainwear range is exclusive to GhostBikes.com and boasts waterproof over jackets, trousers, suits and bike covers. I’ve selected three of my favourite products for you to have a gander at.

The first is the Black™ Flare Waterpoof Motorcycle Jacket. Carefully crafted from the highest quality materials, this advanced piece of kit could prove to be a real life saver for any biker. Fully waterproof with two large storage pockets to the front, the Flare jacket has fully adjustable, elasticated cuffs; ideal for keeping out any unwanted water when the rain gets heavy. The elastication continues around the back of the jacket, where the waistband is easily expandable to ensure the Flare can easily be worn over any larger motorcycle jacket of your choice. The Ergonomic Waist Retention System seen in so many other Black™ products has been factored into the Flare jacket, allowing you to easily adjust the fit of your jacket at the waist. Long reflective strips span the shoulders, chest and around the arms of the jacket, making you more visible to other road users on those dark winter nights. The elegant Black™ logo can be seen in several places, yet this subtle design ties in with the premium quality feel of the jacket. At £27.99 you can’t really argue, can you? Get yours here.

Black Flare Jacket

Next on the agenda is the Black™ Sonar Waterpoof Motorcycle Cover. Exclusively available at GhostBikes.com, the Black™ Sonar Motorcycle Cover is part of the next generation of motorcycle accessories. Available for all kinds of bikes from scooters to heavyweights, and carefully crafted from the highest quality waterproof materials, the Sonar features a heatproof rear panel designed to protect it from hot exhaust pipes and fumes immediately after riding. This innovative feature enables you to cover your bike over as soon as you’ve finished using it; so there’s no need to leave it cooling in the rain. The Sonar also features two ventilation pockets, discreetly designed to allow heat and moisture out from underneath the cover, preventing damp. At the same time, the pockets will not allow any moisture underneath the cover, ensuring your bike stays dry at all times. The Sonar is lock-ready, with 2 strategically placed, pre-made holes for your lock to fit through whilst the bike is covered, leaving you satisfied that your vehicle security is not compromised. An adjustable strap with quick release buckle will secure the Sonar to your bike, passing underneath the bottom and securely clipping together to prevent it from coming away from your bike during strong winds or adverse weather. The elegant Black™ logo spans both sides of the cover, providing a classy and sophisticated feel to all types of motorcycle. Fancy it? Get hold of one here.

Waterproof Motorcycle Cover

Finally we have the Black™ Beacon Waterpoof Motorcycle Over Suit. Combining the best components of the Black™ Rainwear range, the Black™ Beacon Waterproof Motorcycle Rain Suit is in a class of it’s own. Designed and developed by British bikers, the Beacon features an ergonomically styled three-quarter length zipper, complete with Velcro cover flap; allowing you to get into your rain suit easier than ever before. Elasticated, adjustable cuffs are also a notable feature, ensuring that any unwanted moisture will not be creeping into the wrong areas any time soon. The leg taper system, as seen in many other Black™ rainwear products, is back, allowing you to pull both legs of the Beacon in slightly at the ankle for that extra personal fit. Reflective piping runs down the arms and legs and spans the chest and back. This is an important safety feature when riding on the road, especially during winter when the nights are longer and the rain is heavier. The fully adjustable waist strap, complete with quick-release locking buckle allows you to fully secure the suit over your additional clothing, not only keeping heat in but increasing comfort levels too. I know you like the look of this beast, so take a closer look here.

Black Waterproof Suit

The Black™ Rainwear range certainly has something for everyone, so make sure you don’t get wet this winter!

Until next time round, keep those knees down.

It’s that time of the year again isn’t it? Christmas is well and truly upon us.

By now I reckon nearly all of the women of the world have done their Christmas shopping, and the majority of the men haven’t. Gents, this one’s for you.

Our last order date for standard UK delivery in time for the big day is this Friday, 20th December, before 1pm. Any orders placed after that time fall outside our Christmas delivery guarantee, and although we’d love to guarantee deliver on Christmas Eve just like the big guy with a beard, unfortunately we can’t but there is a good chance any orders placed by 1pm on the 23rd will reach you in time as we are despatching until then. However, please note that these dates and times are to be used as a guide only. Once your parcel has left our distribution center it is in the hands of our couriers, who are extremely busy at this time of year. Please feel free to contact us should you have any further questions.

Delivery Times

Until December 23rd our normal opening hours will be in operation. On Christmas Eve we will be open from 9am-1pm, but don’t worry, our massive biker sale starts that day! On Christmas Day and Boxing Day we will be closed, but between the 27th and 30th of December our normal opening hours will resume. We will be closed on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, and once all the festivities have finished we will re-open on Thursday 2nd January 2014 with our regular opening hours.

Don’t forget to check out the GhostBikes.com sale, starting on Christmas Eve!

From everyone here at GhostBikes.com, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

Until next time round, keep those knees down.

It might only be the third week in November, but our annual Christmas countdown clock has already started ticking!

You’ve only got until 1pm on Friday 20th December to place all your orders for guaranteed delivery in time for the big day, so why wait until the last minute? Our Christmas Gift Shop is now live, with plenty of products to choose from, including all sorts of stocking fillers and gifts to suit all kinds of budgets.

If you’re struggling to decide what to buy for your biker friends or family, I’ve chosen my personal favourites from each category to give you some inspiration!

Biker Stocking Fillers

My favourite in this category is by far the Black™ Windproof Balaclava. At £6.99 it’s an absolute steal, with its Super Roubix Pile construction – a special windproof material that repels rapid airflow and helps to insulate the protected area. Perfect for this time of year, it’d be rude not to. Quick code: 5003. To buy, click here.

Biker Gifts Under £25

This one’s a no brainer. The Oxford Aqua20R Backpack is taking the category by storm. Highly durable and fully waterproof, the welded TPU rucksack gives you 20 litres of space to play with – an essential for regular bikers. Ideal for commuters or long distance riders, this one’s a real treat if you’re after biker luggage. Quick code: 8860. To buy, click here.

Oxford Aqua 20R Backpack

Biker Gifts Under £50

My favourite in this category is the THH TS-39 Plain with an additional visor. Sleek and contemporary yet oozing that classic biker feel, the TS-39 is a full face helmet taking the world by storm. Its ECE 22.05 certification makes it fully road legal, and for the very reasonable price of £43.49 you can have an additional visor of your choice included in the bundle. Kill two birds with one stone here, not to be missed. Quick code: 10872. To buy, click here.

Biker Gifts Under £100

If you’re looking at spending a fair bit of cash you definitely want to make sure you’re getting the right present. For me, it’s got to be the Buffalo Caliber Touring Jacket. It’s fully waterproof and has Scotchlite reflective panels on the front and rear. With CE approved elbow and shoulder armour and a removable ThermoMix thermal lining, you can’t really get it wrong if you buy this beast. Quick code: 10575. To buy, click here.

Buffalo Caliber Touring Jacket

Biker Gifts Under £150

This one was definitely the toughest to call, as there are some seriously good products in here. I’ve gone for the Rev’It Brera Urban Jacket on this occasion though. With Knox CE Lite protection at the shoulders and elbows, the jacket is styled to change people’s perception of bikers. With a fur lined hood and stretch paneling at the wrists and waist, it could easily be mistaken for a jacket that was bought on your local high street. An ideal gift for the younger biker or some experienced hands that are desperate to feel their biking youth. Quick code: 10846. To buy, click here.

Biker Gifts Under £200

Treat someone’s feet this Christmas with the Alpinestars 2014 S-MX 6 boots. CE approved and constructed from an advanced microfiber for durability and repeat abrasion resistance, the S-MX 6 boots really are something special. Their high modulus TPU injected shin guard, calf protector, heel counter, shift pad and toe slider improve shock protection and increase the life of the boots. These are so feature packed I could talk about them all day. But I won’t. Quick code: 9978. To buy, click here.

Alpinestars S-MX 6 Motorcycle Boots

Ultimate Biker Gifts

Completing the set are the Alpinestars New Land Gore-Tex Trousers. Where to start with these? The Gore-Tex membrane is 100% waterproof but also adds breathability, and the removable thermal liner with fleece ensures full comfort whether it’s hot or cold.  The trousers also feature rip-stop, tear resistant TEFLON coated seat and knee areas for increased abrasion performance on key impact zones. The CE certified Bio-Armour on the knees is both lightweight and durable; perfect for any biker. These really are a premium product, ideal for any biker. Quick code: 8165. To buy, click here.

Alpinestars New Land GTX Motorcycle Trousers

If none of my favourite biker Christmas gifts tickle your fancy, there’s plenty to choose from on our website. We’ve placed our best sellers and ideal gifts into specific categories, but of course you’re free to indulge in the thousands of other products we have available. And remember, get your shopping done early!

Until next time round, keep those knees down.

We’ve reduced loads of our Shoei helmets, including XR-1100 and Qwest graphics so you know what that means… It’s time to get a top notch lid at a great price in our Shoei sale!

I know what you’re thinking, “Why should I buy a Shoei? Aren’t they expensive?” Read on friends, read on.

Shoei Qwest Bloodflow Motorcycle Helmet

Shoei XR-1100 Glacier Motorcycle Helmet

Shoei XR-1100 Cavallino Motorcycle Helmet

The XR-1100 features technology already seen in the helmets of racing car drivers and fighter jet pilots. The helmet incorporates Shoei’s CW-1 visor which offers a 120 degree view – much more than any other helmet in it’s class. The aerodynamic shell makes the helmet incredibly stable even at high speeds, allowing for optimum airflow and preventing buffeting. The helmet is constructed of lightweight fibreglass which is weaved and layered for maximum shock absorbance, but also the highest levels of rigidity and safety. The lining is completely removable (and machine washable!) so you can keep your helmet feeling fresher for longer. The XR-1100 also sports a specialist ‘breathing chamber’, designed to ensure that your visor does not steam up whilst riding; whatever the weather.

We have limited stock of most models so you’ll have to act fast if you want to get yourself one because once they’re gone, they’re gone!

If that hasn’t tickled your fancy, we still have plenty of other types of motorcycle helmet to suit all budgets. Check out our full range today!

Until next time round, keep those knees down.

The new Black™ Pro Range has landed. Be the first to get yours here! In October 2012 the Black™ Research & Development Team came to us with an idea. They called it the Black™ Pro Range. We weren’t exactly sure what they were getting at. We knew they’d been producing quality clothing and accessories for years, but we also knew that they’d never tried anything like this before. After a big-wigs scrum down at GhostBikes.com HQ we finally agreed to stock the full range. And then the metaphorical clock began to tick. And tick. And tick.

But then, after months of waiting the guys at Black™ finally delivered the Pro Range, and my God are they on to something special with this one. Featuring a whole host of premium quality motorcycle maintenance products, the range was designed with only one thing in mind: Stand out from the crowd. Each product features the elegant Black™ brand plate. Hand crafted from lightweight aluminium, each plate is embossed with the Black™ logo as well as the golden statue of manufacturing excellence. The stylish black and red colour scheme means that you truly can stand out from the crowd, letting everyone know that you’re part of the world’s Pro Range of bikers.

I’m going to focus on a few of the products to give you a feel for the range.

The first is the B5066, a heavy duty aluminium rear paddock stand. Boasting a lightweight frame and a pair of high grip rubber compound wheels, the B5066 is a quality edition to anyone’s garage. Poly-Core Technology ensures the wheels are always moving freely, providing balanced movement when using the stand. ‘A-Frame’ uprights add strength and stability, and go hand in hand with the advanced grade aluminium box section. A knurled grips aids control and the width of the stand is adjustable thanks to the grub screws. Bobbin hooks are included with this beauty as standard, meaning you needn’t have to worry about buying extra bits of kit. Available for just £64.99.

Black Pro Range Aluminium Rear Paddock Stand

Secondly we have the B5069, an MX lift stand like no other. Constructed from heavy duty premium steel, the B5069 has a high density grip pad for added stability. A max load of 160kg means that the stand can be used with even the heaviest of bikes without any hint of it buckling or moving. The stand is fitted with a screw pan as standard, making it a mechanics best friend; ideal for quick jobs and long hard maintenance sessions. The ergonomic wheel runner means that the stand moves freely and easily, so there’s no need for lots of lubricant. The durable rubber handle also means that you’ll be able to manoeuvre the stand with maximum grip too. Get yours for £34.99.

Black Pro Range MX Lift Stand

The third and final product I’ll be giving you an insight into is the B5074. This beast is a floating trolley frame AND a rear paddock stand all rolled into one. The tri-rolling trolley with 360 degree pivoting wheel mechanism allows you to control your bike with precision like never before. The Tri-Wheel Lock Technology allows you to hold the stand in position to ensure your bike stays exactly where you want it at all times. The paddock stand is the same as the standard B5072 and can easily be detached and used as a stand-alone rear paddock stand. The dual density rubber wheel construction means that the stand is well supported from the ground upwards, making it nimble and easy-moving. Fancy it? £69.99 is what you’ll need.

Black Pro Range Floating Trolley & Rear Paddock Stand

And that’s not all. The latest whispers coming out of the Black™ camp are that they’ve got something even bigger ready to drop in early 2014. We heard the words “limited edition” and “helmets” together in the same sentence and got very excited, but I’m afraid that’s all I can say until later this year.

If you haven’t had chance to look at some of our Black™ Biker Clothing yet, take a few minutes out of your day to cast an expert eye over some truly excellent products.

Until next time round, keep those knees down.

Earlier this month we ran a £500 giveaway through our Facebook page. All you had to do was like the page and your name went into our giant Helmet of Destiny. We’re pleased to announce that a winner has been chosen, and that winner is Alfie Davidson from Somerset!

Alfie was then let loose on our website, and after a couple of days and a basket full of items, he placed his order. We checked our stock levels and there was even more good news: We had everything he’d chosen ready for immediate dispatch! Alfie was overjoyed when we contacted him with the news, and he gave us the green light to dispatch his items that very same day. 2 days and 300 miles later, Alfie received a knock at his door from a friendly courier and the rest is history.

We hope you enjoy your goodies Alfie!
