Accessories and BMW equipment are recognized for their quality for many years. Often expensive, they displayed an important consideration technical and best meet the strength and function requirements. The Urban range represents a new step in the manufacture of equipment for bikers and urban scooter riders. The rate content does not betray however the strength nor the real utility of the elements, and only the back protector is missing in jackets and reflective jackets, as to reduce the cost of leaving the choice of model (integrated or autonomous). We found the selection offered by BMW for this autumn.

They sweated and worked underground for 17 years, 360 days a year and 24 hours a day. When the Gotthard base tunnel is inaugurated with great pomp next week, many of them have already left the scene. The 2,000 miners employed at the construction site remained anonymous, while they realized the work of the centuries.
Nostalgia, pride and satisfaction; this is what René Kaufmann feels when he thinks of the tunnel. René Kaufmann, a giant with a reflective jacket and a solid handshake, has just spent 14 years in the Gotthard base tunnel. First in mine rescue, then in equipment management and finally as a locomotive engineer in Sedum (GR), where the difficult geological conditions allowed to work only with explosives.
Blasting is the queen discipline in the tunnel. The blaster master performs a final check round before proceeding with the explosion. The detonation is deafening, the huge shock wave. The acrid smell of ammonia rises to the nose of the miners. It's hot - up to 50 degrees - wet and dust is ubiquitous. Thus the 46-year-old man described his daily task: "I had to carry comrades out of the tunnel because they collapsed."
Team work in the heart of the mountain is hard: ten days of work, four leave. Quick starts are not uncommon. "Either you're done for the tunnel, or you're not." René Kaufmann has been doing this job for thirty years.
His great-grandfather and grandfather were already working in the mines. A small town in East Germany, this is tradition. The locality was known for decades for its pure copper ore. Since he was sixteen, he is in the mines. The daily work has undergone dramatic changes: while René Kaufmann has learned the craft from scratch, satellite-guided machines perform many tasks today. The first workers in reflective vest were still attacking the rock with pickaxes and shovels. But for Kaufmann, the challenge remained the same: "snatch" a tunnel into the mountains.
What has also remained the same: risks? Despite the most modern technology, the fear is there when the elevator drops 800 meters to Sedum and a new day begins. Blocks of unstable rock, chemical substances, fires or accidents: many dangers lie in the mountains. Kaufmann learned it painfully: two comrades lost their lives in the tunnel. The memory of this 28-year-old German is lively, has become daddy shortly before and crushed dead between two wagons of ballast.
"These were hard times. Also because these accidents could have been avoided, "explains René Kaufmann. His compatriot had forgotten to press the emergency button to stop it. A miner must not only respect the mountain, but also the machines. The miners also count on Sainte Barbed, their patroness. There is no tunnel under construction that is not guarded by the saint.
It is not only the blows of fate that bind miners. Their lives reflect their work in the mountains. In Sedum, Kaufmann and his comrades lived on the outskirts of the village, in containers installed above the building site. Each had a single room. WC and showers were upstairs; meals were taken in the canteen.
All the minors came from abroad, especially from Germany, Austria, Portugal and Italy. Fellowship is crucial: "We are a small family". We invite ourselves for grills, we play football or cards. René remained in contact with some colleagues, "thanks to Facebook". Only teamwork allows for a real family life. After eight days, Kaufmann wear safety vest took the wheel of his car and was 800 kilometers. He spent five days with his wife and two sons before returning to Switzerland.
The future remains open. And René Kaufmann is a bit disillusioned. He expected a little more consideration here: "Once the tunnel is over, they drop you like a hot potato." Currently, he takes care of the last interviews in the gallery. His contract expires the day before the festive inauguration of the tunnel. It has already been announced at the ORP, the regional placement office.
The description that Charles Ross in reflective jacket coined for his YouTube channel includes comedy, words, courage and creativity. Based on these principles, the US 22-year old, however, has crossed the boundaries of common sense and ended his last performance with an accusation aggravated theft, which could cost him a detention for up to five years: Ross has removed a stop sign from a cross and he was held in custody by the police, when the video of his "enterprise" had already been published on the Internet (before being removed). Ross was wearing a helmet, a reflective vest and gave a rather confused explanation of the reason for the gesture, revealing that he had removed the sign because this was missing until a few years ago.
Ross runs the Ross Creations channel and is one of those in the US are defined prankster, or a kind of comic whose jokes really angers victims. In her videos Ross causes motorists, wet, bodybuilders and even police officers, so as to have already spent a few days in jail after being placed at the center of a teasing video, where before they jump with a somersault as they sit for a coffee and then mocks them. The young man in reflective clothing was reached home a few hours after putting the video online and spent the night with the handcuffs, waiting for him to be notified of the accusation. In the days he organized a fundraiser on the internet to get the $ 5,000 needed for the legal fees, which admits to not having, however, explaining not blame those who will not help him because he believes is an idiot.
Le coq sportive, a partner of the Yellow Jersey since 2012 - and until 2021 at least - after making the distinctive jerseys from the 1951 to 1988 editions, remains an emblematic brand associated with the great moments of French sport French in Grand Slam, Tannic Noah in 1983, barely older than the last French winner of the Tour, Bernard Hainault in 1985). What makes it more logical, therefore, that the cock decides its partnership with the Tour de France with a range of bikes ranging from short shorts to winter products. We were able to test the Classic N ° 2 Soft-shell reflective jacket. A very nice product is good, but effective and more is better. And here is why.
Two colors are available. The first is darker, navy blue on the top, light gray on the bottom. The second model, the one we tested, is bright yellow on the top for a same reflective gray on the bottom. First qualitative point, this jacket is very visible and plays on both tables, both the yellow vest that must be worn when the evening falls, and the shiny gray that reflects well and makes the rider even more visible to the motorists.
We have consistently worn this jacket with a single undercoat, whether it is raglan underwear or long sleeves, depending on the proposed temperatures. By fog, cold humidity, dry weather and cold weather, in the rain, the jacket was never defeated even at the Venous when the snow began to fall at Chalet Reynard. A jacket ideal or almost to resist is both cold and rain, with its 100% polyester reflective fabric particularly water-repellent. Nothing to say is effective. In short sleeves, the scratched inside is very pleasing to the skin. The wide enough zip is thought for the winter. It has a lining that covers from the inside this potential point of air intake. A good point again.
On the front, the jacket is sober. The blue-white-red logo of the sporting cock evokes the Troyon origins of the company that of the Tour de France recalls the partnership in progress. The sleeves are yellow or navy blue, and the coastline is very well finished, with long gloves, without air intake, and without compression of the wrist. At the back, access to the two pockets is simplified. Two side zippered pockets close from top to bottom, large enough to put all its gear to prevent puncture as more personal goods. They are easy to access, their capacity is very important, you can even put an extra layer for the case. Finally the only risk, with this type of pocket, is to overload! The pockets are very well designed, which allows you to wear this jacket in "civil" without looking like a cyclist who lost his bike!
Note that the sizes range from S to XXL, it is the only small reproach that will be made to this jacket that size well, in anticipation of the three layers certainly, but a size XS would be well seen. For 1.81 meter and 65 kg, S, especially with a single layer, it's almost too big. Little concern reinforced by the fact that this jacket is not proposed in the women's range, you will not even be able to type in the range next door. The price offered is 219 Euros, nothing to say, the product is beautiful, efficient, and it is a reasonable purchase for those who want to limit in basic endurance or not.
This jacket is sold on the online shop of the cock and in specialized shops bike. It is indicated windbreaker, but do not rely on it, it is indeed a winter jacket with reflective tape. Do not try to take it and consider it once you are hot!

What to choose heat insulation? Or better will be the model of the panels on the sides or full reflective jacket for cooler conditions? Rather soft outer material and only waterproof or waterproof and stronger? Rather slightly or somewhat more solid? Questions when choosing a mountain of clothing is as always a lot - throw some light on a light jacket with artificial heat insulation.
In reality the mountain and the vast majority of outdoor light jacket - whether down or with artificial heat insulation - have their place in your backpack (or at least in the trunk) throughout the year. In the summer we use them most evenings in the camps, field tents and bivouacs while climbing, as well as in the morning, when we provide comfortable waiting for the coming of the sun.
Spring and autumn is a time of increased use of these reflective products; period of hot weather during the day significantly shortened, and mornings and evenings are beginning to offer frosts or, at best, a solid cold.
Winter jackets come into play heavier caliber; to make yourself a morning coffee, most often we reach for something "Armored," just as soon as the sun disappears somewhere far to the west. Otherwise the case is during the day; when we are devoted to the activity in the ski race and climbing, and for that - although there is frost - we have a typical day "Lamp" and hard "Trolling" begin to feel uncomfortable.
