The very first Belstaff produced in 1924 was modeled after a jacket issued to sailors standing watch on exposed towers of submarines—a weatherproofing function not too dissimilar from riding an early motorcycle through perennially bad British weather.

These three jackets are the most popular of Belstaff’s Pure Motorcycle line, which debuted in 2005 and continues to carry on the brand’s staggering 90-year legacy of making high quality motorcycle jackets. For the complete history behind the brand and our reasoning to adding them to our line—plus an illustrated brand history slideshow—check out our Journal post “Saying Hello to Belstaff.”

The Trialmaster officially debuted in 1948, named after the famous Scottish Six Days Trials it already had come to be a favorite for. This version here represents an evolution, with a modern waterpfoor liner installed under the shell, plus removable D3O armor in the shoulders and elbows with a space for a back protector—a staple feature of all the Pure Motorcycle range. We also present the Mojave Leather, and its waxed cotton doppleganger, the Brooklands. Any questions as to these jackets function or protection, please contact the shop by phone or email. Or better yet just come try one on while they last.
