WRN readers may recall seeing SportBike Chic products and meeting its founder, LaShundra Rucker, when we awarded her Charlotte Motorcycle Tank Purse as women’s favorite must-have tool or gadget at the 2019 AIMExpo. In addition to the unique and stylish purse that uses magnets to adhere to a metal motorcycle tank, SportBike Chic offers protective jeans, shirts, and hoodies sized to fit a variety of women’s shapes and sizes.
“When I needed protective motorcycle gear, specifically jeans, I couldn’t help but notice there were few options available in my size,” she says. “When I didn’t want to wear regular jeans that exposed too much when I leaned over, the SV version of SportBike Chic jeans was developed. These have the extra lip in the rear to prevent that unwanted exposure, but they are soft and comfortable to wear.”
LaShundra continues, “Essentially, my needs are the needs of a lot of women riders, regardless of the type of motorcycle they ride. Safety gear that fits tends to be indiscriminate of the type of bike you ride."
SportBike Chic’s protective riding jeans look and feel like regular jeans and include CE Level 1 armor. Made with thick but comfortable 11.5 ounce cotton with spandex, the mid-rise skinny jeans have a soft and durable outer shell and incorporate abrasion-resistant DuPont Kevlar lining. Read More...
Chris Gibbany, motorcyclist, moto-journalist, event host, and bike builder reviewed a pair of our jeans on bikernet.com Chris's articles appear in many publications and websites to empower people to live their best life. She's in over 20 magazines a year and was even in Oprah Magazine with her 1956 Panhead (probably the first Panhead in Oprah's magazine). She's super passionate about spreading her love of vintage cars and motorcycles to everyone, young and old, male or female.
"Although I have been riding motorcycles for years, it has only been in the last few years that I have really wanted a pair of Kevlar riding jeans. Two things have kept me from buying a pair; cost and sizing.
Not having a brick and mortar store that allowed me to try on a pair, kept me from ordering a pair online not knowing if they would fit or not. Now, I can tell the world about an awesome pair of Kevlar jeans made by a woman rider to help other women riders be safe and look great while doing it, at a very reasonable price. SportBike Chic was launched in 2016 by U.S. Marine veteran and motorcycle enthusiast, LaShundra Rucker. I got a pair of the riding jeans and I absolutely LOVE them!..." Read More
