RIGBY, IDAHO – The flagship Badlands Pro A3 Jacket and Pant, the world’s first and only CE AAA-rated GORE-TEX® all-weather motorcycle garment, is reengineered in 2023 with significant updates to overall venting, fit and armor placements for world-class durability and functionality on the most demanding adventures.
First released as a limited-edition product in spring 2021 and now redesigned for 2023, the feature-packed Badlands Pro A3 kit continues to set the standard in adventure protection with revolutionary materials and design.
The coveted CE AAA rating, certified to standard EN 17092-2, has historically only been awarded to leather outerwear such as racing suits and select textile garments, which all come with significant heat, bulk and flexibility compromises by nature. It was an expectation that the materials and construction needed to receive this rating would be excessively bulky and hot, both in textile and leather form – until now.
To question the preconceived notions of AAA-rated gear, KLIM’s fabric sourcing and development team worked on creating a new fabric, in partnership with GORE-TEX and Vectran™. Using the proven redesigned Badlands Pro chassis, with its robust Superfabric® overlays already capable of exceeding AAA-rating requirements, KLIM integrated this new fabric across the highly ventilated, armored platform.
Now in 2023, the second-gen Badlands Pro A3, no longer a limited edition, is available in multiple colors, new trims and carries major improvements for the ambitious adventure rider. For the Jacket, improvements include comfort and mobility features with new soft leather cuff bindings and massive wrist cuff vents. The added waterproof napoleon-style chest pocket and compartmentalized right hand pocket enhances storage, while built-in chest armor pockets improve protection with optional chest armor available separately.
The custom-engineered Badlands Pro A3 Pant delivers premium durability and functionality that riders have grown to trust, now with added ventilation through new lower leg vents, plus an in-pocket organizer for better organization, lighter fabrics in less abrasive areas and extended size range options for a fine-tuned fit. Additional size variations offer improved fit options with available tall-size jackets.
Wherever you ride, and whatever you ride, KLIM has your entire season of touring, adventure riding and dual-sport adventures covered.
