15+ Years Online

We've been serving the motorcycle community for more than 15 years now and in that time we've grown to be the largest online retailer of motorcycle clothing & accessories in the UK.

Free Returns*

We now offer free returns on any UK Mainland order (excluding Highlands) over £25. Most importantly, returning an item to us is super simple. Just click here or on the 'create a return' link located at the bottom of every page, and create your return in under 1 minute.

Click & Collect

If you can't be around to receive your delivery during the day, just use our click & collect option. We offer delivery to a shop local to you using the DPD Pickup network. Most pick up points are open outside of normal working hours and will keep your package so you can collect at a time to suit you.

60,000+ Reviews

Whilst we know a bit about bikes and bike kit, the best road testers out there are our customers, real bikers, just like you. If you're looking for advice on what to buy, you'll find over 60,000 independent product reviews which we've posted, unedited, for all to see. Whether it's a question about sizing, quality or something else, our customer reviews are quite simply, the best place to start.

365 Day Returns

We simply don't believe in making the sale and moving on, we want to make sure our customers are happy with their purchase. That's why we now offer a full 365 day returns period. Simply relax, take your time and make sure it's right! All we ask is that you try the items within your own home and return with the tags intact.

Award Winning

There's a reason why our competitors spend so much time watching what we do, we believe in customer service levels beyond the norm and we're always looking for ways to improve. In late 2013 we were recognised for this by the bike industry's No.1 publication, Motorcycle News. As retailer of the year, we feel it's our duty to constantly better our offering and if you have any ideas, we'd love to hear from you!

Bought trousers to match too and after a few weeks of commuting in them I am very pleased keep me very warm and dry on my 40 mile round trip. Only down side is no Zip on the sleeves just velcro around the wrist which makes tucking your glove in a little tricky but top quality gear as always from alpinestars

Took a chance on this after some advise. I was expecting just a flash brand name but I'm converted. It is comfortable and very warm riding with just a Tshirt underneath in January. Also given its January I can say it is 100% waterproof. It's a great product and great service as always.

Nice jacket

As per other reviews I went up a size and it fits my partner perfectly. I can't comment on performance yet as it's a Christmas present and I've wrapped it up but it's well made and a nice length to keep the midriff warm. Plenty of pockets and a nice high neck.

Good quality, very comfortable

Very sturdy, very warm and very comfortable despite its bulk. But why is the zip on the wrong side?

Love this jacket

My old jacket had begun to leak as winter begun so came to the ever reliable SBS. After browsing the range and checking reviews, I decided on this and it's a great choice, warm seems well protected and as I have ridden through plenty of rain, I can vouch for it being properly waterproof. Pockets are well secured with velcro so no water seepage. Price is good for a quality jacket. I cannot find anything to complain about and I am usually very Victor Meldrew

Alpinestars enough said

I purchased this jacket to replace an Alpinestars jacket which I got second hand off eBay. The only thing that I will criticise is the main zip is opposite handed but hopefully will soon get used to it.
