Speed and Strength's collection is hard-edged and perfect for the rougher aesthetic. If the other brands are too hipster for you, Speed and Strength may offer a better option. We've considered them a mostly cruiser brand, but unlike some cruiser-centric brands they offer most all of their stuff with legit protection. Don't over look the brand though if you're an ADV or sportbike rider as they offer some cool on-and-off the bike gear, like shoes, boots, along with some great budget full face and ADV helmets.
