Cute new Ladies gear from Power Trip

A couple weeks ago, I saw an ad for a new jacket by Power Trip in 2 Wheel Tuner. I fell in love with it, and searched everywhere and couldn't find it anywhere. As of today, they've finally updated their site with the new designs.

Previously, it seemed Power Trip catered more to the cruiser/Harley market, and didn't have much in the way of cute/younger designs... but they've really come up with some cute stuff... feminine designs in black, white and red (minimal pink and no baby blue). All in all, there's 5 new jacket styles for '06.

Though I haven't seen any of them in person yet, the silouhettes look to be a bit longer/leaner, so they'll have good lower-back coverage; most seem to have CE protectors, and those little things that look like garters danging off them? Nuh uh... those are straps to loop around your belt to keep your jacket down when you ride (or God forbid, if you were to go sliding).

"Stiletto" is on my MUST BUY list (in the black/red).... "She Devil" is also nice (same design, but in leather).

Check it out!

Yeha I'd seen that Vintage one before, and it is nice... I'd actually wear that as a casual jacket when NOT on the bike, just cus it's cut so nicely.

Drats... where are they made? Ah well.... can't help what ya like. Regardless of where it's made, I know I'll end up buying it.

pretty cute stuff. and i'm glad to see the absence of pastels. i mean, can't a girl flatter her figure and match her bike all at the same time? pretty soon i am gonna hafta go and have my colors done to see what season i am, in order to buy the most flattering gear. puhleez, i am a girl, but i am not girly by any means.

I don't mind all the pink and blue, but it's not "me." I like black, red, gray, white.... and occasionally, Kawi Green. I wear tons of pink IRL, but just have no desire to have pink gear. *shrug* So yeah, it's nice to see some more neutral/stronger color choices in women's gear.

there's just something about pink and baby blue gear that would make me feel like i wouldn't be taken seriously as a rider. it's like making it obvious that i am a girl, and some guys think that's hot while others think that makes me inferior. obviously i am in the minority, since this stuff apparently sells like gangbusters. the stuff looks great, but i just prefer to match my bike. i also don't think i have the right look to pull off those colors. my loss i guess. as long as they offer other colors, it's all good.

There was actually a HUGE long debate on another forum I'm on (in the ladies area) where the question was posed, "Do you think girls who wear blue/pink or otherwise obviously feminine gear are attention whores?" I was amazed how many girls said YES! Personally, I don't care what colro your gear is so long as you're WEARING it. It could be psychedelic patchwork for all I care!

Glad you saw it in the magazine - Power Trip was indeed mainly for the Harley crowd however they recently changed their focus to the sportbike market. Good stuff!

I had a conversation with our Sullivans rep about women's gear yesterday, as we really want to carry an extensive women's line. His (true) statement was that most women don't care about matching the bike (how many bikes so you see designed for a woman?), they want to look good when they get *off* of the bike. It's taken the gear companies quite a while to figure that out. It's also taken them a while to figure out that women aren't shaped like men! The power trip line is actually designed *by* women.


BTW- Power Trip is Joe Rocket.

LMAO.... why on earth did it take them a long time to figure THAT out?

Ah well.... at least they finally did. And the results look great!! I can't wait to try it on in person... I'm hoping SOMEONE at Bike Week will have this stuff.

well, i have to admit to the pink thing, but i wont be caught DEAD in pastels ...i got bit by the pink bug (but only the dark bold variety), I also do appreciate it when people realize that I am a female on a bike, the stereo-type thing seems to be bad down here, we were out the other day and were with a group of about 50 people and out of that there were only 2 other girls on bikes!!! Most people figure I am more likely to die than a guy on a bike, but there are a few who think its awesome!

I am really liking that JR jacket, the dark pink, black and white one...it looks great and the back coverage looks incredible, I have real problem finding a jacket that covers my back end when I lean forward so thats really important to me...any ideas aside from that one?

I'm not sure which JR Jacket you're referring to, but if you mean Trixie (the new leather one) I can personally vouch for it -- it's WONDERFUL.

It does have good backside coverage - the back tapers into a long V, so there's no panty-peek.

And the leather is soooo wonderfully soft, it didn't take ANY time to break in. I think I blabbed on and on about it in another thread on here, but if that's the jacket you're considering, and you want more info, just shoot me a PM.

i think they look good on alot of people, unfortunately I look horrible in anything pastel!! I am a BOLD color kinda person...but i do love the jacket...i just need something really long, the wind down here is so bad I spend quite a bit of time making as small a target of myself as possible and i end up back-flashing everyone behind me!!

Ok, I have some price info on some of the jackets:

MSRP on Stiletto (mesh) is $159

MSRP on She Devil (textile) is $219

Check with your local dealer.... the shop I contacted in Daytona (The Helmet Shop) does so much volume, their prices are much lower ($129 on Stiletto, and $179 on She Devil).
