2013 Klim Adventure Air Suit
 
Another suit in the release, the Adventure Air, is more unique. It is made with a material Klim calls Carbonite, an abrasion resistant full-mesh fabric, to allow full time ventilation. The chassis holds the armor, has the pockets, and performs the basic functions, but as a mesh suit. Then, to make it waterproof, it is paired with a Gore-Tex stretch shell, designed so it integrates with the mesh pieces.

The Adventure Air can be paired with an optional Gore-Tex 3 Layer rainsuit, designed and patterned to work together:

Any word as to whether the new XERGO armour will fit the older Adventure and Badlands jackets/pants?

In these pics, rumored to be of of country and western superstar Randy Travis, you can see that the main chassis looks quite sturdy:

Have not seen pics with both pieces together, and it is not cheap. But, it is a really innovative idea, and a clever design proposal.

Wow, this looks really, really interesting :clap

Looks like the new AR2 has some additional venting in the side chest/pit area and has an additional/redesigned left chest pocket too.

No question as to who this ugly bastard is:

Love my Badlands suit for venting etc but miss the Leatt brace compatibility... Very interested in the AR2! :clap

I had been giving feedback to Mark at Klim about improvements I thought the BPro could use then spoke with him at RMAR in Silverton, where he told me a new Mesh Kevlar suit was coming out...... this had me interested as this is my prefered outer combo (Kevlar mesh using a Gore shell for the rainy days)

Then two weeks ago in St. Johns Newfoundland of all places while picking up a 606 at the Toy Box Keith shows me the new dealer catalog with all the specs for this rig and the saliva started to flow. I should've taken pics of the catalog, as the specs were broader and the pictures more close up.

Anyway the use of Kevlar is to me PARAMOUNT (as I've slid down the Tarmac and gotten burns from melting Cordura)... no longer will Motoport have the exclusive Kevlar Mesh kit on the market.

More specs...

I need a mesh suit; I'm probably going to be in an early line for the Adventure Air. (As long as it doesn't cost $2,400!)

Bofaxrunner 10-17-2012 06:34 PM

I've been waiting for the Adventure Rally update. Now that I wear a Leatt, my Latitude suit must go. I will be hitting you up tomorrow to order the ADV Rally 2. The Air suit looks really nice, though I really don't like having to stop and put on the water proof layer. If I lived farther south, the Adventure Air would be my choice.

Talk to you tomorrow,
Kevin

A mesh suit that's also waterproof?? :huh

:lurk

So, it's basically a Touratech Companero build by Klim. Interresting, and promising, even if the Adventure is not in my budget (I've my Latitude for that).

Looks a lot like the Motoport Kevlar Mesh 2-piece (I have one and love it) with an exterior Gore-Tex waterproof shell instead of the interior waterproof shell. I definitely would have considered it if available when I got my Motoport set.

I can also vouch for the fact that the kevlar mesh with keprotec is amazingly comfy in the heat. On a texas summer day I would much rather wear my kevlar mesh ultra-II pants than Levis jeans.

Can't wait to see pricing.

Jettn Jim 10-31-2012 09:29 PM

Yup with a Gore-Tex outer the Mesh setup is theee way to go in my opinion! :deal :freaky

Dan Alexander 11-01-2012 04:57 AM

I'm still not clear on the concept, is the exterior a full windbreaker / rain suit type jacket or is it some type of panels that attach to the main jacket?
