Incorporating years of motorcycle accessory know-how, parents can now clothe children in one of the most protective and durable garments available. Called the Stoke Suit, the latest outfit from BMW is aimed at active youngsters who enjoy activities such as skateboarding, mountain biking, blading and even skiing or snowboarding. Featuring a robust polyester outer and inner fabrics including a ‘Z-liner’ membrane for improved durability, the Stoke Suit jacket also comes with shock absorbing padding in the vulnerable areas of the shoulders, elbows and back. Stoke Suit trousers have the same level of padding in the knee area.
Available in sizes S to L from BMW Motorrad dealerships, the jacket costs £120 and the trousers £75. Parents can buy the outfit safe in the knowledge that thanks to the incorporated 4cm extension fabric in both arm and leg areas, children won’t be growing out of the Stoke Suit soon after they have bought the garment.Published 21 May 2004
