The Ulkagear brand is a brainchild of racer and riding coach Shahnawaz Karim
Ulka Gear, a creator of motorcycle riding jackets, has just released the innovative Hakkit Forever, a summer touring jacket priced at Rs 10,999, and the Hakkit V2, a summer city riding jacket priced at Rs 8,999. Both the jackets feature a 600D cordura construction and CE Level 1 armour for the shoulder and elbow, with the toptio . However, what sets them apart is both these jackets can be converted into a backpack enabling the rider to carry his helmet, gloves, and goggles with ease when not riding.
Both the Hakkit Forerver and Hakkit V2 are unisex breathable lightweight summer jackets available in different sizes from XS to 3XL featuring an adjustable waist and water-resistant pockets, and come with a waterproof rain cover that can be worn over the main jacket to provide water protection and worn inside to provide wind protection. The Hakkit Forever also has a unique pocket on the left forearm big enough to be used as a mobile phone holder. Additionally, riders can, in one zip, convert the jackets into a backpack.
Speaking around the idea behind the creation of these jackets, Shahnawaz Karim, founder, Ulkagear, said, “India has the largest motorcycle market in the world, with almost 21 million units sold in 2019. When hitting the open roads, the biker's gears including helmet, jacket and gloves are of paramount importance, thus offering maximum functionality.”
He further added, "Being a former national circuit racer and trainer myself, I understand the pulse of the bikers. We designed a convertible jacket, and aim for it to become one of the most iconic items of clothing for the motorcyclist. I am optimistic we will emerge as India's most efficient riders’ apparel brand and a global brand to reckon with."
The Ulkagear Hakkit Forever and Hakkit V2 jackets are available on Amazon.in, as well as the brand’s official website.
