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.

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.

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.

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.
