Our sister company, AKB.ie are once again bringing in the Macna all weather clothing range. Both we here at Franklin Motorcycles in Swords as well as Lee Honda in Cork are now specialist Macna centres. As such we will both be stocking the new range with an emphasis on the groundbreaking ‘Night Eye’ technology.

Night Eye is a very clever addition to motorcycle jackets that works incredibly well. The jacket is regular old grey by day, yet it’s incredibly luminous at night. When placed in the range of any other vehicles headlights, it’ll light up like a reflective traffic sign.

This is thanks to the fabric being coated with lots of microscopic beads. They catch the light and reflect it back to its source, even from long distances. Meanwhile all of the jackets and trousers in the range are waterproof, breathable and have CE protection in the shoulders and elbow and knees.

There are four jackets to choose from: the ‘Beryl’ is only available in a ladies cut and costs €199. Both the ‘Traction’ Night Eye  and the ‘Myth Night Eye cost the same while the Mountain Night Eye comes in at €290. When it comes to the pants the ladies, once again, get their own cut with the Iron at €189 and the Fulcrum is available in standard at €239 or the Pro APS at €299

The gloves are going by the title of the ‘Rock’. They feature OutDry, which means they are waterproof. They are also thermos lined and they cost €140. All are now available from both stores. Call us here in  Franklin Motorcycles on 015385005 or Lee Honda on 0214351133 to arrange a fitting.
