New for 09 Fall is the Stryker back protector. Our goal was to create a back protector that worked for the street as well as the track. A custom molded bio-foam chassis, designed to mold to your back, has air channels within the foam that allows heat to escape resulting in reduced fatigue. Secured to the chassis are three layers of impact abosrbing foam which are capped by an articulated reinforced plastic shell. The reinforced shell helps diffuse impact forces. In addition, the shoulder and waist straps are removable providing you with the option of installing the back protector into certain Icon jackets. Available in Black Rubatone or Speedfreak colorways.

This is a photo of the Dock Boys all posed up on their Excelsior circa 1915. The Dock Boys, hailing from the rough Front Avenue shipyards, were known for their quick temper, excellent balance, and trademark dapper hats. A few years back the Icon Garage Team had a turf war with this crew over the disputed Slabtown blocks. It was a nasty rumble. The Dock boys brought their preferred weapons of choice - stevedore profanity and oily spit. This was considered a formidable arsenal in the era of steam and donkey. But the Icon Garage Team had long ago learned that harsh language and a jaw full of Red Man was no match for 1/4" plate steel and pure will. The Icon Garage Team, wielding their Spec Plus machetes , made short work of the Dock Boys. And that is how Icon claimed the Slabtown blocks for their own.

What do you do when your town is besieged by military pseudo-zombies? You make like Cherry Darling and wrap yourself in Icon's finest vintage leather - the Retro Daytona jacket. Even if you're just directing said zombie film - do like Mr. Rodriguez and rock an Icon Motorhead Skull jacket. Icon Leathers - a solid first line of defense against unplanned living dead encounters.

On my way to work I tagged a deer with the left side of my bike. I was able to ride it out for a few feet but ended up loosing the bike and hitting the ground. I'm still not exactly sure what happened. When I got up I had to follow a trail of plastic to the river, where I found my bike. The good? I still have a shoulder thanks to my Icon Daytona jacket. The bad? I found out my R6 won't run underwater the hard way. -Kyle D.
