New 2019 Spring / Summer Collection from Tucano Urbano
Tucano Urbano have launched the brand-new Spring/Summer collection for 2019, not only introducing a new headline collection of helmets alongside new clothing and accessories, but also bringing back new and improved customer favourites.
With a company ethos of constant development and refinement, Italian-based company Tucano Urbano have announced high safety standards, enhanced fit and updated looks to a number of jackets within the existing line-up. All jackets new for 2019, as well as a number of other jackets within the collection, are now fully CE – Class A approved in accordance with directive prEN17092. CE certification ensures that the motorcycle clothing and accessories have satisfied a set of stringent rules to offer suitable levels of abrasion and impact protection, without limiting movement.
Rachel Fuller, UK Country Manager, said: “Tucano Urbano understand exactly what the customer wants from their riding kit – and the new collection for 2019 reflects the core pillars of what every rider should expect; first-class safety, unrivalled comfort and effortless style. As a result of extensive refinement and tests, we’ve developed our line-up so all new products, as well as customer favourites, such as the TOM and MONSIEUR jackets, meet and exceed CE safety standards.”
Brand new for 2019 is a headline range of striking helmets.
