LAKE FOREST, CA – April 29, 2010 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – What is it about skulls? Whether it was the skull and crossbones flag pirates on the Spanish Main used to signal no quarter or the warning label on a poison bottle, skulls have historically been used to instill fear and serve as a warning to steer clear! The same message applies to Scorpion’s all-new SkullBucket ExoWear jacket and matching EXO 400 series helmets. Flying the SkullBucket flag serves as a warning to urban warriors on the mean streets that no quarter will be asked… or given!
The bad-ass SkullBucket jacket is as tough as it looks. Starting with a 600 Denier outershell, the jacket gets ballistic nylon panels in the high impact areas, further bolstered by CE-approved armor at the elbows and shoulders. There is also a full length back protector compartment, complete with a P.E. foam pad. Beyond the body armor, the water-resistant polyurethane coated fabric works in conjunction with a removable full sleeve EverHeat™ thermal liner to keep riders warm and dry even when Mother Nature decides to unleash her wrath.
In addition to the overtly menacing exterior, subtle refinements abound. There are two generous hand warmer pockets as well as an interior storage pocket. Reflective trim has been incorporated on the arms and back of the jacket for improved night-time visibility. Additional highlights include snap-operated arm adjustment tabs to keep sleeves from flapping at triple digit speeds and belt loop tabs for pant attachment.
Just like the original Jolly Roger pirate flag, the SkullBucket jacket comes in a menacing black and white to strike fear into the hearts of fat merchant men. Speaking of which, sizes range from S up through XXL! If you are looking to take no prisoners, score a SkullBucket jacket and matching helmet without having to pay a pirates ransom.
MSRP for the SkullBucket Jacket Sizes S-XXL: $189.95 to $204.95
MSRP for the EXO 400 SkullBucket Helmet: $159.95
