MCA Caringbah Manager’s clothing suggestions when going Adventure Riding.

With one of the team in October heading to India we thought it would be a good opportunity to see our Motorcycle Clothing Guru, Wilson at MCA Caringbah.

He are some of his suggestions.

AGV AX8 Evo Dual sport

AGV AX8 Evo Dual Sport

The AX-8 EVO is an extremely versatile helmet for both on-and-off road use. The design and the line inevitably recall the AX-8 Model from which it is derived but additional technical features like the visor and the specific visor mechanism, the chin air vent that can be opened, and the openable supplementary ventilation on the top guarantee all the performance and comfort of a road model.

  • New shell shape for better aerodynamic stability at higher street speeds, works inconcert with the high-flow peak and new side cowl vents
  • New chin vent with more intake ports.
