Introducing the ‘Blackhawk’ Riding Shirt from Akin Moto - a protective over-shirt designed to be the perfect alternative to a big heavy jacket.

Ride with confidence knowing that you’re covered with genuine 210gsm DuPont™ Kevlar® fabric that has been woven with COOLMAX® comfort fibres. This patented technology provides very high levels of abrasion resistance, but it also ‘breathes’ - keeping you cool and comfortable.

Need more protection? We’ve designed the Blackhawk Riding Shirt to be 100% compatible with back, shoulder and elbow armour (sold separately).

Need more airflow? The Blackhawk Riding Shirt has a hidden SmartVent™ System in the armpits and across the back – simply open up the discreet vents and you’ll keep yourself cool on those hot summer rides.

When it comes to riding gear, small details make a big difference. The collar snaps down to stop it flapping against your helmet, there’s internal pockets for your valuables, and the sleeves are slightly longer so they sit perfectly when you’re on the bike. We’ve also used ‘glove friendly’ snap buttons and zippers to make it easier for when you’re in a rush and don’t want to remove your gloves.

The Blackhawk Riding Shirt is designed to blend seamlessly with all types of bikes, from cruisers to café racers, sportbikes to supermotos. No matter what you ride, it’s going to be your new ‘go-to’ – both on and off the bike.

Lay your shirt or jacket flat on a table, and measure the chest, making sure to go from side seam to side seam (near the armpit like in the photo below - It's very important that you go ALL the way to the seam join). Compare your measurement to the table above. 

If you're unsure of your size, please EMAIL US at, especially if you are an international customer. We are here to help and will do whatever we can to make sure you order the right size.
