2014 Tucker Rocky Showcase
New 2014 Motorcycle Gear and Accessories
July 30, 2013 - San Diego, CA
Motorcycle gear and accessory showcases are, by far, some of my favorite events. With booth after booth of brand new stuff from motorcycle helmets to chrome motorcycle accessories, every motorcycle enthusiast is like a kid in a candy store. Last week, BikeBandit.com was able to go to the 2014 Tucker Rocky Texas Showcase to check out all of the brand spanking new 2014 motorcycle gear, accessories and tools. Check out the full video of everything new and exciting from all of your favorite brands such as BikeMaster, Speed and Strength, MSR, Pro Taper and many, many more:
Too long to watch? Here's the basic run down:
Speed and Strength revealed all of their new 2014 motorcycle gear. Our favorites were the Tapout and Jesse Rooke Customs Gear including really cool custom jackets and helmets.
ABUS Motorcycle Security also gave us a really great demonstration of how their brakes not only keep your bike safe but also keep you from riding off with a lock still attached, a problem that can cause you to wreck a rotor, wheel or you leg.
Answer was back with their brand new 2014 off-road motorcycle racing gear including jerseys, pants and gloves. The definite highlight is the new 2014 Answer Syncron line that motocross racer Jake Weimer has been riding in this season. Plus, they also gave us a great look at the new Skullcandy motorcycle glove line.
In motorcycle parts and Accessories, Pro Taper took the cake for their all new Pro Taper Profile Clutch Perch that is nearly indestructible. It not only can bend up and down to prevent it from breaking, it also has 50mm of reach adjustability. Plus, if you do break it, they'll replace it for free with no questions asked.
Arai is the top of the line in motorcycle helmets, so they gave us the rundown of why they're the best of the best. Plus we got the scoop on why the Arai Corsair V Race Carbon Motorcycle Helmet is priced at a whopping $3,995. When they say that that helmet is a piece of working art, they really aren't kidding.
We also met up with Shoria to get the lowdown on their Lithium Iron Phosphate Power Sports Batteries and what they have that's new this year. You can expect their batteries to be even lighter, longer lasting and even environmentally friendly.
Scala-Rider is one of the top motorcycle communication systems companies and their brand new Q1 Team Set and Q2 Pro Multiset Communication Systems have some really great features. Check out the video for more details on distance and audio sharing. It's all pretty cool.
Of course, GoPro was one of the most exciting booths at the 2014 Tucker Rocky Texas Showcase. With awesome updates on their video editing software as well as the free app, editing and posting videos has never been easier. Plus, we got the scoop on some new stuff that we can't quite talk about yet, so stay tuned for more updates. In the mean time, check out the really awesome video that we made while go cart racing before the showcase.
MSR showed off their new 2014 off-road motorcycle gear line as well, featuring the MSR Mav 1 Motorcycle Helmet line that off-road racer Nick Wey helmet design. Plus we got some great info on the 2014 MSR NXT, Renegade and AXIS Motorcycle Gear lines.
The all new Dunlop Q3 Motorcycle Tire has been much talked about recently. At the 2014 Tucker Rocky Showcase, Dunlop themselves were able to tell us what sets this motorcycle tire apart from the rest including the brand new carbon fiber make-up.
Anytime Red Bull get's involved in gear, it's bound to be awesome. Ogio's new Red Bull Motorcycle Luggage line is no exception. With ten pieces all designed with the Red Bull colors and logos, this Limited Edition Ogio line is worth a serious look at.
BikeMaster is one of the leading manufacturers of both motorcycle tools and motorcycle accessories. This year, they're continuing to keep competitors on their toes with new accessories to keep you warm when riding this fall. Plus, their new motorcycle rotors were pretty cool.
Last, but not least, Kuryakyn was impossible to miss on the way out. With lit up and chromed-out motorcycles grabbing everyone's attention, it was easy to see why they're so excited about their new 2014 motorcycle accessories. From chrome accents to their new LED Headlights that shine two times brighter, Kuryakyn is making sure your motorcycle gets noticed.
