How do I properly wash and care for motorcycle clothing?

Each product has its own care and washing instructions attached to the product. In addition to the laundry care symbols, you should pay attention to the following points when washing:

• Separate laundry depending on the required temperature
• Separate dark and light colors
• Close zips to avoid sharp edges
• Friction is important when washing: never fill the drum too full, but don't let the machine run too empty either.
• Shake out the laundry well before hanging it up
• Remove the protectors from clothing before washing.

How do I wash and care for leather clothing?

How do I care for my textile clothing with a climate membrane?

• When the clothing gets dirty, the climate membrane remains waterproof, but the ability to breathe gradually decreases. So wash it more often.
• Remove the protectors from clothing before washing.
• Textile clothing with a climate membrane can usually be machine washed without any problems. Be sure to follow the care instructions on the sewn-in label. It is advisable to use a special detergent, otherwise the membrane may be damaged. Never use fabric softener!
• Avoid excessive heat when drying.
• Then treat with a dirt- and water-repellent textile impregnation spray.

Does motorcycle clothing need after-treatment and impregnation?

• Snagging zippers are simply rubbed over them with a few drops of silicone spray on a soft cloth. This makes them nice and easy to move again.
• Impregnation helps: raindrops roll off. Water does not even penetrate into the outer fabric. Use silicone-free impregnation spray, preferably spray on after washing and allow to dry. Then activate the water-repellent impregnation effect by ironing according to the care label or in the dryer at a low temperature.
• Impregnation does not affect the function of the membrane. Well-impregnated clothing is dirt and water-repellent. A soaked outer fabric causes heat loss. Good impregnation also protects against the cold.
• The clothing should be impregnated again after about 3-4 washes.

How do I store my motorcycle clothing correctly?

• Only leave motorcycle clothing in a dry place over the winter.
• It is best to store motorcycle clothing, including inner lining and protectors, hanging up in the wardrobe.
• If the clothing can be additionally protected by a garment bag, this must be air-permeable; a plastic bag without air holes should be left open at the bottom.
• Leather and textiles should not be folded. Leather can warp or discolour at the folds.
