Light, flexible and breathable, Piaggio’s new Summer Gloves are designed to make scooter riding on hot summer days much more comfortable.
The palm is predominantly made from Clarino – a man-made alternative to leather that out-performs leather in some applications, yet retains its softness, even when wet, and is microporous, to allow moisture and heat to escape.
This works with mesh panels on the back for ventilation, to keep hands feeling fresh.
The short cut means they can sit easily under the cuffs of summer riding jackets and also allows airflow around the wrists and forearms.
For added comfort and dexterity, the gloves use stretch fabric, and the Neoprene cuff, with Velcro closure, ensures a secure fit. Thermoplastic rubber knuckle protectors complete the package.
Piaggio Summer Gloves come in sizes S-3XL in classic black with a subtle Piaggio Logo injected on the wrist closure. They retail at £49.00 including VAT.

Painted to perfectly match the popular Primavera, Sprint and GTS scooters, and even the exclusive 946, Vespa VJ and VJ1 Helmets combine modern components and materials with classic open-face styling.
Ideal for urban use, the designs offer all-round vision, and are compact enough to fit in most scooters’ under-seat storage compartments and top boxes.
Unlike many ‘traditional’ open-face helmets, both are fitted with a retractable sun visor, and the VJ also comes with a full-length clear external visor as standard.
Both models have a strong yet light ABS shell, fastened with a quick-release, micro-adjustable strap, and are approved to the ECE2205 safety standard.
Inside, a breathable textile lining keeps the rider comfortable and cool, and it can be removed and washed as necessary.
The VJ comes in sizes XS to XL, retailing at £139.00 in Azure Blue, Burgundy, Coral and Cream. A stylish chrome trim and a subtle Vespa logo on the front finish off the classic look.
The VJ1 also comes in XS-XL and retails for £125.00. Choose from Orange, Titanium, Yellow and Green.

New from Europe’s largest scooter manufacturer, the Piaggio Modular Helmet is comfortable, practical and protective – the perfect riding partner both in and out of town.
In town, when filling up with fuel, grabbing a snack or running an errand, the single button chin bar release makes it easy to reveal your face for recognition purposes.
A quick-release, micrometric chin buckle means there’s no fiddling about in the car park or bike bay either – it’s as quick to fasten and adjust as it is to release.
Out on the open road the aerodynamically designed shell offers cleaner airflow to keep the head stable, easing pressure on the neck for a relaxed ride. Made from tough, light thermoplastic/resin for strength and flexibility, with UV protection, the helmets is certified to the current ECE22.05 safety standard for road use.
The scratch-resistant visor and internal, flip-down sun visor keep the view of the road ahead clear, while venting to the top and chin bar channels a cooling breeze through the EPS liner and out via exhaust vents to the rear.
The high quality textile lining is hypoallergenic, as well as fully removable and washable, for season-long freshness and comfort.
Piaggio’s Modular Helmet comes in two subtle colour choices – Bianco and Army Green – in sizes XS-XXL, and sells for £129.
