The Element jacket is the pinnacle product in our DIRT Series collection. It’s the go-to jacket for the off-road rider that needs a lightweight, comfortable, and waterproof garment for all adventures on the trails. The hard shell body of the jacket is constructed with a comfortable yet flexible waterproof stretch ripstop fabric. Rugged CORDURA® ripstop fabric is used at the shoulders and arms for increased abrasion resistance and durability. SEESMART™ CE-level 1 protectors provide protection to the rider at the shoulders and elbows. That said, its armor can also easily be *upgraded by wearing the Proteus protector jacket under the Element. In higher temperatures, airflow is created by opening the ventilation zippers at the lower and upper arms. The zippers of the front and rear pockets allow warm air to escape from the jacket and offer plenty of storage options to bring along all the items needed for the journey. The detachable hood will keep the rider dry off the bike and can be stored in the back pocket when taken off and not in use. *Make sure the included SEESMART™ armor is removed before upgrading the protection otherwise the ideal fit won’t be achieved & discomfort may ensue.
