BORN IN THE DAKAR RALLY
The Atacama Race Shell was built to help Lyndon Poskitt get to the finish line of the Dakar Rally. Twice.
Built to work with the Adventure Spec Layering system. The Atacama Race Shell is a waterproof outer layer and is sized to work perfectly over mid and out layers like The Atacama Race Jacket.
3 LAYER WATERPROOF FABRIC
Light and tough, the 3 layer ripstop fabric is breathable and extremely waterproof. A hydrostatic head of 28,000mm is designed to withstand prolonged rain whilst riding.
THE LONG TAIL
A generous cut on the rear of the jacket covers your bum and keeps the water out while stood up on the pegs in the rain and mud. It also helps keep you dry when you sit down on that soggy log at camp.
THROTTLE FRIENDLY CHEST POCKET
A chest pocket on the right side of the jacket allows use with your left hand, whilst you keep your right hand on your throttle and brake lever.
FOLDS INTO ITS POCKET
Stuffs into its own reversible pocket for ultimate compact storage.
*Not including the large neck brace collar.
LIGHT IS RIGHT
At just 497g (size M) the Atacama Race Shell is light to wear and takes up very little pack room in your luggage.
MATCH IT WITH THE ADV LAYER POUCH
Stuffs perfectly into the ADV Layer Pouch. Our Magadan luggage system is designed to make sure you have all your layers ready when you need them.
MADE IN EUROPE
Manufactured to high standards in our EU factory.
This is a Leatt neck brace compatible outer shell jacket and is designed to be wind and water resistant (we have found it compatible with most other neck braces).
The jacket does not have any insulation, impact or abrasion resistance
This jacket is made from a 3-layer laminated fabric, which means it does not need any lining to be waterproof. It appears as if it is a single layer of waterproof material.
The jacket weighs 460g and packs down into its own chest pocket which is 150mm x 150mm x 100mm
Probably the world's lightest neck brace compatible waterproof shell. Designed as a waterproof, windproof and superlight pocket-packable jacket to be thrown on during a cold early morning rally liaison (or a rare desert shower) this jacket redefines adventure/rally lightweight rider wear when used over the mesh Atacama Race Jacket.
Made from a 210D 3 layer ripstop fabric designed specifically by AS for making lightweight motorcycling clothing, the fabric keeps the weight and packed size to a minimum whilst enabling superior levels of wind and waterproofing.
The jacket is designed to be used in three configurations:
No collar attached at all, open necked around a Leatt style neck brace for maximum cooling flexibility
Neck brace collar attached, to close the jacket down into a fully water and windproof shell for those high altitude Dakar stages, cold early morning desert liasons or as protection against that random downpour
With the (additional extra) non-neckbrace collar attached, for those times off your bike in the cold or wet Malle Moto bivouac when you’re struggling with the inevitable bent nav tower!
The jacket also comes with a single throttle/brake friendly chest pocket (which the jacket can be packed into) and lots of reflective panels for maximum visibility on those early morning/late night rides.
