The 92-page 2018 KTM PowerWear Street catalog is bursting with functional products to cover everything from head to toe and is designed to perfectly complement the style and demands of riders – whatever the adventure.

For travel enduro riding in particular, there are many high-quality KTM PowerWear options delivered by KTM alongside exclusive items from other leading clothing brands, including Alpinestars, Schuberth and SHOEI. The results of this diverse collection allow riders to gear up for the extremes and give total commitment on every ride, thanks to premium products with a high focus on performance, comfort and safety – as illustrated by the option of equipping the MANAGUA GTX and DURBAN GTX JACKETS with the innovative Alpinestars Tech-Air™ Street Airbag System.

The Tech-Air™ Street Airbag System provides extensive, inflatable protection for the entire upper body, including the back, shoulders, kidney and upper abdominal area. No wires or sensors are needed on the bike – activate the system on the jacket and ride. Its sensors typically absorb impact in 30-60 milliseconds and fully deploy the airbag in just 25 milliseconds (faster than the blink of an eye) using advanced electronics and complex algorithms. Tech-Air™ even protects users at standstill, such as when waiting at traffic lights.
