Aerostich Now Making Women’s Riding Suits

Popular one-piece riding garment now cut for women

3/22/2013

The Roadcrafter from Aerostich is one of motorcycling's oldest and most popular riding suits. Developed in 1984, the Roadcrafter has been the suit of choice for thousands of riders heading out on world tours, as it offers the ultimate all-weather and performance protection for crossing multiple ecological and time zones in one trip. Now Aerostich is following the lead of many major motorcycle apparel manufacturers and making sizes cut specifically for women riders. That's right, female motorcyclists—you no longer have to try and make a boxy "unisex" riding suit fit your curves. 

WRN contributor Tricia Szulewski is one of the women cheering the introduction of the women's Roadcrafter. She's currently putting the suit through its paces, so stay tuned for a full review!

Four new women’s sizes—8, 10, 12, and 14—are now available off the rack. Aerostich Roadcrafter suits are made from 500 Denier Cordura GORE-TEX fabric. According to Aerostitch, sleeve length, shoulder width, and “a thousand other dimensions" have been subtly redesigned to provide a fit designed for a woman’s body.

Women-specific updates include a smaller neck, narrower shoulders, a more defined waist and extra hip room.

Each Roadcrafter suit is loaded with features offering the best possible protection for riders. Here are just a few of those features:
  • High-visibility Scotchlite reflective material 
  • Nine strategically placed external pockets 
  • Provisions for removable arm and thigh map window pockets 
  • Hip pads and a back pad 
  • Underarm and back vents 
  • Side zippers for access to your street pants 
  • A comfortable snap-down, ultra-suede collar lining
  • A variety of adjustable tabs and zippers that allow you to fine-tune the fit
The suit is available in a variety of colors, including gray (shown here), hi-viz yellow (shown in the first photo), red, blue, black, and a number of custom colors.

We’ve known riders to have their Roadcrafter suit for life—that is, unless it’s torn apart in an accident. Even then, the high-quality Cordura fabric is abrasion resistant, so it’s designed to protect you should you take a spill on the pavement. Riders who engage in extensive touring and/or commuting know the value of quality riding gear that protects in all kinds of conditions. Keep that in mind when considering the price of this one-piece suit, which is $897. A two-piece option (with separate jacket and pants) is also available. Look for Tricia’s full review on Women Riders Now (WRN) in the coming months. Visit Aerostich.com to learn more.
