(Lake Forest, CA June 23, 2011) Scorpion's Tornado textile jacket puts a new spin on the traditional motorcycle jacket, combining top features with incredibly low prices. "This jacket has it all... waterproofing, CE-approved armor, you name it," says Scorpion Sports Inc. National Sales Manager Jon Eide. "The range of features we have incorporated into the Tornado for a price well under $200 really does blow me away."
Starting with durable 600-denier nylon, the outershell is then treated with polyurethane for true water resistance, no matter how inclement the riding conditions may get. Internally, the fully removable AirGuard liner helps prevent wind chill from becoming a factor. When things do warm up, Scorpion's AirVent™ ventilation system kicks in. Consisting of two zippered high-flow air intake panels in the front of the jacket and two matching rear vents, airflow over the body's core is maximized when the panels are unzipped. Should it get chilly, simply zip-up to seal out any unwanted airflow.
Speaking of sealing things up, Scorpion's exclusive ExoStitch® seams not only improve the seal, but also keep cuffs from fraying or seams for giving way. "It is this attention to detail that really differentiates the Tornado," claims Jon.
"Sure the AirVent™ system is cool, but this is a serious riding jacket, so we didn't skimp on the EXO-Tec CE-approved armor inside the shoulder and elbow pockets," adds Eide. Further enhancing the safety aspect is a full-length back protector pocket, complete with a P.E. temper foam insert.
The Tornado offers its own unique styling twists and technical features, including adjustable sleeve tension straps for a custom fit... and to keep things from flapping in the breeze. Large zippered hand-warmer pockets and NightViz™ reflective panel front also add to this jacket's functionality.
