The UK’s bustling commuter cities have recently sparked a trend for packing in public transport and taking to 2-wheels, meaning a growing number of riders are on the look out for practical yet stylish protective clothing. Riding gear specialists, Furygan, have stepped up to the plate with a few new options.
