Heading out for a ride, but don’t want to wear a bulky jacket? Say hello to the ‘Trusty’ Riding Shirt from Akin Moto – the ultimate combination of style, protection and comfort.

Where comfort meets confidence – The ‘Trusty’ riding shirt is fully lined with genuine 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 in Summer.

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

Need more airflow? The Trusty 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.

Small details make a big difference – The collar snaps down to stop it flapping against your helmet, there’s an internal water-resistant pocket for your valuables, and the sleeves are slightly longer and pre-curved so they are perfect when you’re on the bike. We’ve also used snap buttons on the front closure to make it quick and easy to put on/take off + ‘glove friendly’ YKK zippers.

No matter what you ride, the ‘Trusty’ Riding Shirt is 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.

Top Quality

Great fit, and really good quality riding gear. Purchased this as my spring/summer riding wear and complements the black riding jeans by Akin really well.

New fan of Akin Moto

First off, if you're unsure about sizing - Grant will sort you out. It's been said before in the reviews, and there's a size chart to look at - but after a bit of back and forth (I was right in-between XL and 2XL), Grant pointed me in the right direction for my preferred fit (which was the smaller size). If you're about to pull the trigger but you're unsure: just ask. The reviewers her are having positive experiences with customer service for a reason.

The shirt itself is great. I like the cut, materials and colour. It feels well engineered and is snug for me in the forearms with armour, which is nice (btw: I'm using my own 3D0, which works fine - I'm going to get the thinner armour from here with my next Akin purchase. Even with bulkier armour, it's barely noticeable in this shirt). The extra length is great and saves people from having to see my ass. I've also worn it under a leather jacket before (I live in Melbourne), and it felt just like a regular shirt - albeit with more protection for me.

Looking forward to trying their jackets now that Akin are on my radar. Really happy with this shirt.

Exceptional Customer Service

Unfortunately, I did not end up buying this shirt, because my size is not in stock anymore. Nevertheless, Grant from Customer Service did an amazing job. I live outside of Australia, so returning the products isn't an option because of shipping and customs. He took his time to answer all of my questions thorough and honest and in the end recommended the size they don't have in stock anymore, because it was important for him, I end up with a shirt that fits not to just make a sale. So, if you are interested in their products, but don't live in Australia, don't hesitate to contact them, they will give their all to help you.
Keep up the good work!

What the hell guys?!

I can't believe it took me this long to find this brand of ridding gear. The ridding shirt is absolutely A-MA-ZING!

Quality is incredible, fit is long and tailored just as described. No more showing my tramp stamp if I raise my arms up. No more have my shirt ride up to my elbows. Beautiful jacket.

My only need to come out with more colours, because now I cannot live with only one of these ridding shirts.

Will definetly be buying some more gears once the blue jeans come back in stock. Might get a vest too...and some gloves and maybe a hoodie.

Cheers and again, keep up this quality of gear and you will have customers forever!
