Did you know JT Racing actually began as a sock company? Well, they did. Back in the late 1960s, John and Rita Gregory, founders of JT Racing, created a colorful, stretchy motocross sock and decided to sell them to help with John’s racing expenses. Soon, they were shuttering their pharmacy company and pursing motocross full-time. By the mid ‘70s, the sock company had grown into the iconic JT Racing gear brand that everyone knows today. You know how it worked for JT’s riders back in the day: men wanted to be them and women wanted to date them. They were they “the” gear.
Today, JT Racing is still going strong—and recently even introduced the first reborn JT Racing boot. The quick release buckle system, and reinforced dual layer ankle support gives any rider confidence on the track. Even better—it’s not expensive, as it retails for just $199. You’re going to need something to carry those boots around in, and JT has you covered there as well with their Slasher Gear Bag ($179.95), and you can use the Slasher Backpack ($49.95) for your casual stuff.
JT Racing is still making some of the best gear around and their ProTek Subframe line is constructed with a perfect blend of materials and paneling, which provides superior anatomical fit and function. You can pick up the jersey for $54.95 and the pant for $174.95.
You got your boots, your gear and a way to carry it all around, so now all you need is a helmet. Check out JT Racing’s ALS 1.0 for just $179. Just like the glory days, you can go head-to-toe with JT Racing. Visit jtracingusa.com for everything.
Now, while the JT Racing look has been around forever, bike graphics were not nearly as cool back in the day. You could run some stickers to dial your style, but custom graphics are a much more modern thing. N-Style has been on the cutting edge of this category for a long time, and they make some of the best kits around for just $179.99. Visit n-style.com for all your needs. You can also order from Motorcycle-Superstore.com.
