Vintage style meets modern protection.
For Fuel Motorcycles, their passion for all things bike is clear in everything they do. From crafting customs like this Royal Enfield Himalayan to organizing the annual Scram Africa event every year since 2013, bikes are Fuel’s entire life.
Now, there are lots of people for whom this is also true, all around the world. Not everyone decides to also make their own retro-inspired motorcycle gear line with modern protection, though. The Fuel Rally Marathon Jacket is the latest in a continuing line of tough, retro-inspired rider protection with the kind of modern touches you want in your gear in 2020.
The outer layer is Cordura, while Kevlar panels keep all abrasion and impact areas covered. This jacket comes with Smoothways CE level 2 armor in shoulders, elbows, and also across your back. It carries a European certification EN17092-3:2020 Class AA rating for on-road protective motorcycle gear.
Diving deeper, there’s a removable water and wind-resistant liner so you can layer up or down as needed. The sleeves and torso have vents you can open or close, and pockets both inside and outside are waterproof and have waterproof, self-sealing zippers for added water protection. Waist, wrist, and side adjustments help you dial in the fit exactly right on your frame.

If you like earth tones and retro looks, this could be the adventure touring jacket for you. It’s available in sizes Small to XXL, at a cost of $370. There’s also a matching set of Fuel Rally Marathon Pants available, from Euro sizes 30 to 40, for an additional $230. All materials used are the same as in the jacket, and it carries the same European certification rating for safety. Leg openings are adjustable so they can comfortably be tucked into or worn outside the boot. Both zippered vents and a usable pocket come standard on these pants.
