USEFUL TIPS

Adjust your protectors

All Nordcap garments have protector pockets. In order to have the best comfort make sure you put the protector at the right place. Take note that the protector will be slightly in a low position when standing and move to the right spot in the riding angle.

 

Check your size accurately!

Best comfort and safety is achieved when wearing the right size. Especially wearing a too big size will cause blowing up and flattering. It cause loss of control and poor aerodynamics. Also the protectors will remain in place when wearing the proper size. When they have too much room they might slip out of place during a crash.

 

How to operate your zippers

A zipper is a great invention. Easy to use, quick to close and open. However, they are not bombproof. Your zippers will remain in good shape when you avoid pulling (too) hard. Use them in a straight direction and try to operate them without bends as much as possible.

 

Improve the lifetime of your waterproof gloves

When taking of waterproof gloves it will expand the lifetime when you hold the fingertips properly when taking of the glove. The membrane is a loose layer inside which is attached at the fingertips, to keep it in place.

 

Make sure they see you!

A black suit is beautiful and will withstand the different fashion periods best. For your visibility however it is better to choose a bright or lighter color, or even better, a neon yellow color version. Not as fashionable but at least you will draw everyone’s attention effortlessly.

 

More safety with a CE backprotector

All Nordcap jacket’s have a back protector. Mounting a CE back protector will increase the safety of your jacket significantly.

 

Speed up the drying time of your motorcycle gear

Removing the waterproof membrane will speed up the drying time. In that way both the inside as the outside will be able to get plenty of fresh and dry air.

 

How to stay dry

  • Waterproof jackets always have several front flaps with overlap to avoid water running in. When used properly this works perfectly. Leaking can occur whenever the front flap is not straight down, with places where water is collected. Keep it straight so you stay dry!
  • Connect your pant and jackets right.
  • Make sure when connecting a jacket with detachable, waterproof membrane to pants, to connect the pants in such a way that the jackets’ membrane lays over the pants.
  • Wear your gloves inside your sleeve!
    The only really waterproof way to use waterproof jackets and gloves is to wear the glove inside the jackets’ sleeve. Water will always run into your gloves when worn over the sleeve.
