Merlin Motorcycle Clothing made its start in 2012, driven by five passionate people, all of them riders. It began in a humble barn conversion, the five founders drawing on three decades of experience and a dream to create something special. That first collection of motorcycle clothing back in 2012 was based on Merlin thinking that holds true today – to create clothing that redefines expectations of what riding apparel can be. Clothing that reflects a rider’s personality, complements the bike yet never compromises on safety, functionality or performance. The bar was set high, yet the vision was always that Merlin motorcycle clothing also be reasonably priced and within reach of the average rider.
The Merlin team worked hard in that leaky little ‘warehouse’, kept to the vision and continued to create clothing that was instantly popular with riders. Partnerships followed, including an agreement with Halley Stevensons, suppliers of textiles such as waxed cotton since 1864. More partnerships followed, including agreements with DuPont™ for use of high performance textiles and Marton Mills, arguably the maker of the UK’s finest tartan.
The Merlin range grew to include its Heritage line as well as Leisure Moto and Riderwear. Specific styles to match every rider, bike and journey. By 2016 Merlin had begun to expand beyond the UK and into over 14 countries globally. By 2017 Merlin’s technical innovation had gained enormous momentum and included ‘universal’ airbag systems to be worn over any brand of jacket, as well as airbags integrated into a number of Merlin garments. Meanwhile Merlin’s reputation and image had grown to the point where its apparel had become a popular choice with high-profile types from musicians to TV personalities and racing drivers.
Today, Merlin motorcycle clothing is available in more than 20 countries around the world. Merlin continues to be a proud British brand with a passion for two wheels, its own Design House and an insistence on the finest materials and components. It’s this drive to incorporate the very best into every Merlin garment that’s earned the brand a string of accreditations and conformity with safety standards including EU, CE and UKCA. Kitted out in Merlin motorcycle clothing, a rider can take on any journey with complete confidence in their gear.
Today Merlin’s range of jackets, shirts, pants, gloves and accessories is wider than ever, its gear a firm favourite with smart Australian riders who have an eye for style, performance and value.
