Klim’s introduced a new item to its line that adventure riders are sure to love. The Hardanger one-piece suit aims to provide superior protection from the elements and hazards of the road in a single, convenient package. The roster of features is impressive, and size run generous with options for short, regular, and tall riders in small through 3XL. Colors include black, tan, and gray, and pricing starts at $1,299.99.
The Hardanger has a three-layer Gore-Tex outer shell that is guaranteed to keep you dry. There are 750-denier Cordura reinforcements on the elbows, boot panels, knees, and shoulders too. Getting in and out of the Hardanger is accomplished with a top-down zip-in, zip-out design. The outer shell has a number of other touches as well, including waterproof pass-through ports for heated garment wires and ability to integrate with the Klim Tek Pak touring backpack. There’s a metal D-ring built into the Hardanger that allows the entire suit to be locked to a helmet lock on the bike, for when you want to spend some time off the motorcycle and out of the suit.
There’s no liner inside because Klim wanted to provide a streamlined piece of gear that will allow riders to wear normal clothes or additional layers beneath.
You get numerous vents on the Hardanger including two on the chest, on the forearms, triceps, biceps, thighs (front and back), and on the back. For storage there are two chest pockets, two front thigh pockets, a left forearm pocket, two interior pockets and two hand-warmer pockets.
Impact protection is provided by a full range of D3O LP1 vented armor, with pads in the shoulders, elbows, back, hips, and knees. Armor position can be adjusted as well to suit a variety of body types.
The piece as a whole is designed for maximum comfort, so has a touring/commuting fit build and adjustment straps at the forearms, waist, and calves. There’s 3M Scotchlite reflective material throughout the exterior as well to improve visibility.
If this is the suit you’ve been waiting for, you can get yours now from Klim.
