NEW Acerbis Desrtika jkt for Leatt Brace

Acerbis new Desertika enduro jackets for use with Leatt brace are in stock and ready to ship. Desertika jackets retail for $249.95 and we have sizes Med. through XXL. We’ve added some technical images as well as images of the Desertika with Leatt on the website. www.MX1WEST.com. Take a look!

ADV's not taking attachments at the moment, we'll add pix later.

The Desertika jacket, studied and developed with Cyril Despres and Giovanni Sala, is exclusively prepared to use the Leatt-BraceTM with YKK zipper, which allows it to be transported on the neck. Incredibly light and vented, it is the best jacket for enduro and rally competitions.


  • Made in Nylon Duratech 600D and Nylon K3203
  • Adjustable ventilation in the front, back and armpit area
  • Wrist closure in elastic fabric with adjustable with strip
  • Waist volume adjustment with external cord
  • Internal lining anti-wind
  • YKK ® zippers in all the pockets
  • 4 front pockets, 2 back pockets and 1 side pocket on the sleeve
  • Ready to hold a drink system

Size reference: I’m 6ft 170 pounds and the Large fits great over a Koerta pressure suit underneath.

If you’re in the market for a Leatt brace www.RiderDown.org is a distributor we work with that gives back to our community helping injured riders and their families. Also we’re clearing out our 2007 gear line right now with proceeds going to RiderDown. So if you need some new gear check it out.

Any questions on Desertika or any other Acerbis gear, give us a call or email.
888-MX1-WEST or sales@MX1WEST.com

Thanks. J

i've been waiting a long time for this jacket and it's going on my x-mas list for sure!



would you suggest a medium or large size for a 5'10" 165lb. guy who normally wears a 40R jacket? i would want to wear this over my leatt brace and rockgardN flak jacket.

MX, if it's posted to your website, you can post it here. There, did I earn a free jacket?

Armor pockets. Does it have pockets for forearm armor? Standard Euro-size back protector pocket (I think I see that in the pics)?

According to an email I got from Jason, no. I'm not sure whether he was referring to a prototype or the finished product, tho. I believe it's made to be used with a pressure/rallye suit.

Jason that's a sweet looking jacket, is there a cold weather version planned or at this point just wear a fleece vest underneath? Will it hold a 100oz. drink system? We need to get this posted over at RiderDown.org!

Nice job posting the photos, Zen!

Bruce, don’t you need a new jacket? No cold weather version on the plans right now. I’ve been using my 07 Impact liner. 100oz drink system works great. We’ll take some better photos for everybody of somebody in gear. Those were taken the day we got Derertika’s behind the warehouse. It was casual day so I was wearing T-shirt, shorts and thongs. Not a good outfit for riding and it makes the jacket look short. With riding pants on the jacket sits right below my belt line. Looks like we’ll need Smug Mug to get images up?

Thanks to anyone who has picked up some clearance gear. We’ve got some $ heading RiderDown’s way.

Thanks, J.

Thumb Desertika in the HOUSE!!!

Mr. Santa (AKA the FedEX man) just dropped off an early Christmas (or late Chanukah, as the case may be) present -- my new Desertika!!!


In a word -- AWESOME!!!


Even without factoring in the Leatt compatibility, I like it better than the Impact already. Better cut for use with body armor (shoulders/chest), and slightly longer arms. More comfortable all the way 'round.


Works perfectly with the Leatt, and I found a VERY awesome bonus that puts my last remaining concern to rest (I'll fill you in on that when I do a more in depth writeup with pics).



Thanks, Jason!!

MX1WEST/Jason, are there any plans for matching over-boot pants that are as durable and waterproof as the Desertika jacket itself? In the Pacific NorthWet I too often end up riding in the rain so waterproof is an important factor.

Has the Desertika jacket proven to be reasonably waterproof in heavy rain? Thanks.
