Discover all the highlights now!

We are very pleased to present you with the stars from the 2023 Held collection.

Discover all the highlights for the 2023 motorbike season on the following pages – from leather and textile combinations to biker jeans, motorbike gloves and retro jackets to functional underwear, boots and luggage.

In the sports section, you can look forward to our new one-piece leather combination Expite and the first availability of the one-piece Slade II in women’s sizes. Also: a new eye-catching colour variation of the sporty leather jacket Safer II and a new motorbike glove for road and track: the Akira RR!

The new collection of touring jackets spans from textile combinations with generous mesh inserts like Sonic II / Vento II for hot summer days, to waterproof and windproof combinations like the new Savona Top & Base with GORE-TEX membranes for those unsettled days.

For all adventure and touring enthusiasts, our adventure section has a new highlight in store: the adventure combination Omberg Top & Base, with GORE-TEX 3-layer laminate that offers complete protection against water penetration. Armacor® inserts in the camber zones provide all the necessary abrasion protection. This is a high-performance laminate patented by GORE-TEX that combines the high tear strength and heat resistance of Kevlar® (melting point >400 °C) with the high abrasion resistance of Cordura® in ripstop construction.

Almost unrecognisable as motorbike protective clothing: the Held Urban collection.

Whether the Woodland lumberjack shirt with D3O® Ghost protectors or in the Creek cargo jeans with height-adjustable soft protectors: the Armalith® Stretch Denim used in the clothing plays out its entire range of advantages here: remarkable wearing comfort and terrific freedom of movement thanks to cotton sheathing of the fibres and single-layer weaving of the fabric, high resistance to high abrasion and tearing resistance thanks to the polyethylene core fibre with ultra-high molecular weight.

Of course, there will again be highlights in motorbike gloves for 2023. The tried and tested Kakuda and Revel 3.0 models will each receive a new colour variant. The Akira RR is a new motorbike glove in the sports range. It has a finger bridge between the little and ring fingers, a side shell made of hard plastic and a knuckle shell made of titanium, making it ideal for use on fast roads and the race track.

For fans of extended trips, we have again developed some innovations in the Touring range for the coming year:

Tour-Mate – a comfortable touring glove made of goatskin, with stretch leather inserts on the backhand and fingers and a lightweight lining. The knuckles are protected by a leather-covered D30® protector shell, and SuperFabric®-brand material and Armaprotec are used on the palm.

Fresco Air – the new airy summer glove with perforated palms, perforated finger layers and perforated leather inserts on the backhand brings in draught and is particularly suitable on hot summer days. In addition, the special tanning of the TFL-COOL-System® ensures that incidental sunlight is reflected and the glove remains pleasantly cool.

Springride – this Thermoplush-lined motorbike glove has a soft cowhide backhand and a goatskin palm. Thanks to the permanently waterproof and windproof GORE-TEX membrane, the touring glove is also ideal for low temperatures – as they often are at the beginning of the season.

Air n Dry II – Our most popular 2in1 glove with two different chambers, covering the widest range of uses. In the unlined “breezy” chamber, the wind gets inside the glove unhindered thanks to the perforated finger layers, the perforated palm and the perforations in the leather-covered backhand made of Cordura®. The “dry” chamber features a GORE-TEX membrane and Pique-Push-Pull lining and keeps you dry and pleasantly warm in wind and weather.

Sambia – our multi-award-winning adventure motorbike glove gets a fresh coat of paint and two new appealing colour options: military green and brown.

Sanford – this stylish summer glove has a palm made from highly abrasion-resistant kangaroo leather and a backhand made from goatskin. The knuckles are protected by a D30® shell, at the edge of the hand an additional reinforcement stabilises the index finger. For stylish trips to the café or the ice cream parlour.

As always in the usual Held quality: highest wearing comfort combined with uncompromising safety!

The Held family and the entire Held Biker Fashion team hope you enjoy discovering the new collection.
