Riding is fun if you ride smart! Following the rules, wearing all the riding gears and riding safe play a vital role when on the roads. I am sure all you riders out there have owned different riding gears for safe rides. Jacket, helmet, knee pads being the important ones are all available in different range. It depends entirely upon you to make your pick as per the requirement and choice.
In India, there are many companies that sell various riding jackets that are manufactured in Pakistan but you all will surely agree with me that there are some compromises being made on the quality part. I too was not satisfied with the quality of the riding jackets up on the market shelves.
Fortunately, there is one company that has a cool range of riding jackets available. Named Leiidor, this is a London based company that manufactures riding jackets keeping quality as the key factor.
Fineness in design, spec, light weight, longer usage, utmost comfort, aesthetically cool design, use of branded, genuine and original raw material (like Invista Cordura®, 3MTM, Velcro®, Knox, Ykk, Drymax®), proper detailing and added comfort to the rider add to the features that talk out loud about the uniqueness of Leiidor jackets.
Besides, the association with British technical consultant claims enhanced technical quality of all Leiidor products.
Now, the question is about how you can claim that the riding jackets from Leiidor are different from any other Indian brand riding jacket. Well, you need to check it out and compare.
CoupleOnBike is here with the first hand review of the Leiidor jacket. Read on to know the first impression Leiidor jacket laid on us. The jacket we are reviewing here is the Leiidor Grandstand from its Road Sport range!
As you can see in the picture, the unit we are reviewing here is Leiidor Road Sport black and grey colored jacket.

Safety Features of Grandstand Road Sport Jacket
The Leiidor jacket comes with Knox armours, which are world leading protective armours from Britain, whereas most other Indian products do away with basic CE rated or sometimes even non CE rated fake armours. The innovated dual position adjustable elbow armour pouch ads more to the safety.
This super cool riding jacket offers protection coverage for varied arm lengths and riding positions. Besides, the excessive reflective areas add to the safety. The original InvistaCordura panels, Knox protectors even for the mid range all add to the overall safety the jacket claims to provide to the rider.
All in all, I loved this aesthetically smart riding gear with all the features that add to the uniqueness thereby convincing any rider to pick it up in one go. You can make your pick from the amazing range of riding jackets available.
