Geeky Motorcycle Leathers And Cool Jackets

Wanna be a biker?
But maybe being a traditional biker isn't the path you want to go. Maybe you want to be a new kind of biker... A geek biker.

Yes, I said Geek Biker!
UD Replicas has released a line of biker leathers that aren't your average Harley Davidson. These leathers allow you to show the world that you and your bike are into stuff... geeky stuff.

Behold!

Stormtroop and Shadow Trooper



As the backbone of the imperial army, the Stormtroopers are the empire’s legions, a mass of menacing power in their awe-inspiring armor.

Now, one of the most iconic uniforms in the STAR WARS™ universe has been exquisitely rendered in leather by the UD Replicas’ team, setting a new standard in leather garment manufacturing.

Inspired by the classic STAR WARS™ imperial armor, UD Replica’s designers have raised the bar on what can be accomplished working with form-molded leather. Each rounded segment, every chiselled and bevelled edge perfectly replicates the look of the on-screen armor.

Available in both Shadow Trooper black or the classic Stormtrooper imperial white, each suit comes complete with built-in CE-approved body armor to fully protect the motorcycle rider. If you want to ride in true STAR WARS™ style, have no doubts...this IS the suit you’re looking for!



 Darth Maul



Before there was Vader...there was Maul.
As the STAR WARS™ universe began to unfold in Episode I, we were introduced to one of its most unique characters. Darth Maul, Sith apprentice, with his double-bladed lightsaber and stunning martial arts skills, was a crimson and black tattooed warrior who battled our Jedi heroes and showed them the true power of the Dark Side.

Now, you too can feel that power when you put on your own officially licensed, movie-inspired Darth Maul Racing Jacket, boldly emblazoned with the unmistakable red and black pattern of this Sith warrior. Created by the master leather craftsmen at UD Replicas, this is not only a work of art, it’s a fully functioning motorcycle jacket, complete with built-in CE-approved body armor. Remove the armor and you have a leather jacket that is guaranteed to turn heads with its unique bold styling.
Daredevil


Daredevil, also known as The Man Without Fear, has occupied a special place in the Marvel Universe since his first appearance in comics in 1964. Considered one of the greatest comic book characters of all time by both Wizard and Empire magazines, Daredevil was first brought to the big screen in 2003 with Ben Affleck in the title role. But the real visual star was Daredevil’s sleek red leather suit that protected our hero as he fought for justice in the crime-ridden Hell’s Kitchen area of New York.
Now, you can own your own faithfully rendered official movie replica of the Daredevil suit, specifically designed as a fully functioning motorcycle suit. Working from the screen-used suits worn by Ben Affleck, the craftsmen at UD Replicas have faithfully reproduced every detail, right down to Daredevil’s unique emblem embossed in the leather jacket. More than just stylish, each suit incorporates protective design features all designed with the rider’s protection in mind.


Iron Man

 
When billionaire industrialist Tony Stark travels, IRON MAN™ always comes along for the ride. But when space is at a premium and mobility is a priority, Stark's luggage always includes a very special suitcase that can instantly deploy Iron Man's Mark V armor. First seen on the streets of Monte Carlo during the Grand Prix, the Mark V blends portability and power. At UD Replicas, we've captured the power and style of the Mark V armor, rendering it in form-molded leather to create the perfect Iron Man motorcycle suit.
Make no mistake, this is not a costume but a fully-functioning armored motorcycle suit that pays tribute to the vision of Iron Man as seen on the big screen.


Wolverine


 Everyone's favorite mutant-with-an-attitude always makes an impression but never so much as when he is decked out in his sleek, powerful X-Men™ BATTLESUIT. Patterned directly off of the Wolverine™ suit used in X2: X-Men United™, UD Replicas has created a perfect screen-accurate replica motorcycle suit that combines real-world function and protection with a highly detailed X-Men(tm) design. Like Logan, we love motorcycles and we know what riders are looking for in a suit.

Captain America


He was the first.
Before the Avengers could become a team…he led the way.
Forged in war, freedom’s greatest protector was
Captain America…The First Avenger.
Now with this Officially Licensed Movie Replica, you too can own the ultimate tribute to the ultimate hero. Meticulously designed as a screen-accurate leather motorcycle suit, UD Replicas proves you don’t need super serum to look like a superhero.

One of the most unique leather uniforms created for the screen can now be yours. Every feature as seen on film in Captain America: The First Avenger has been replicated in form-molded leather from the classic color-scheme to the aluminum accent emblems on the back, arms and forever iconic silver star emblazoned on our hero’s chest. Perfectly crafted gloves, boots, functional belt and detailed rigging complete this iconic battle-uniform that captures the retro 1940s Captian America: The First Avenger design.

Be a part of the continuing legend with the UD Replicas Captain America: The First Avenger motorcycle suit.


BATMAN


In BATMAN BEGINS™, we’re introduced to Bruce Wayne’s first incarnation of the BATMAN™ suit. Created by the Applied Sciences Division of Wayne Enterprises, this raw and intimidating design becomes an integral part of building the legend of The Dark Knight™ on the streets and rooftops of Gotham City.

At UDReplicas, we have faithfully rendered the sleek, bevel-edged anatomy of this first bat suit with the same attention to detail found in our version of the suit’s successor as seen in the film The Dark Knight™.

As with all our screen-accurate replica motorcycle suits, we painstakingly work with the original screen suits to capture their unique designs in form-molded leather. With this latest offering, we were fortunate to work with Brian Best, the craftsman at Shepperton Studios in England who supervised the mold design and model-making workshops that created the on-screen suits for BATMAN BEGINS™.

The result of this collaboration is obvious in every detailed angle of the sculpted armour and is sure to please any fan who demands the utmost in accuracy.

Aren't they awesome? I'm not sure which one I want more, the Stormtrooper or Captain America; not that I would ever get on a motorcycle, but I can still appreciate the craftsmanship and attention to detail. There are also some cool geek leather jackets on the site.

Speaking of cool jackets, these ones from Volante Design won't protect you while biking, but are still majorly cool.



The Wolverine and Captain America jackets are now available, as well as some cool assassin hoodies. You can email about them at  info@enzovolante.com 
The rest are just sketches, but I really hope they make them as well.



 I really want the Doctor Doom jacket, and how cool are the Cloak and Dagger Duo?
So if you wanted to be a geeky biker or just have cool geeky jackets, what character would you want to look like?
