Okay, so you can choose KENNY jackets with other colors and sponsors like this:

Ital, your jackets are awesome. Glad to see a company providing cool, yet solid looking products for the core riding world.

If I may ask a simple question: Why isn't Despres riding with his own name on his Jacket, as well as Coma and other top elite riders. To my limited recollection: Doesn't Kenny stand for the KTM team captain who wins the ERZ. race but doesn't ride in Dakar after always crashing out? I've seen the signature KTM Kenny Rally jackets available in Europe, but what is the panache of having the KENNY name ahead of Despres or Coma, since they are the Dakar elite?

You're thinking of KTM "Kini" gear, named after Heinz Kinigadner, a completely different thing.

Quinn Cody was wearing a regular Alpinestars Venture jacket in the Dakar this year (I know this because I have the same one at home!)... it's off-the-shelf in Europe, but for some reason Alpinestars don't sell the full range of their MX and Enduro gear in the States, only boots and gloves???

You can order the Venture Jacket though any UK online shop (Try Racespec.co.uk for example) and get one posted though? It's a top jacket - zip off-sleeves, bladder pouch, big pockets, and pretty decent weather protection too, and not stupid money either...

I wore the older design in Dakar this year (as there were no red new ones in stock anywhere before Christmas):


But this is the current design - available in two-tone red, plain black, or two-tone blue (like me and QC x):

Thanks for the info, italrally. I'm not in the market for 3 custom jackets right now, but when I am I now know who to call!

Sure, it's good for at least 5-10mph more...

(actually, what I presume Skibum meant was that it is actually quite important what you look like, for your sponsors at least... the better you look, the more you'll be photographed... seriously!)
