Tame the Streets in the Scorpion Optima Jacket.

Common sense dictates that when travelling by street bike, you’re going to need the right motorcycle apparel. And the new Optima Jacket from Scorpion fits that bill to a tee. Today we’re going to show you how and why. More importantly, we’re going to show you where to get yours (Spoiler Alert- it’s right here at BTO Sports). So buckle up! Because it’s going to be fun.

The Scorpion Optima Jacket is truly a state-of-the-art piece of riding gear. It’s a 100% waterproof, breathable laminate riding jacket. Furthermore, it boasts “Direct Core Ventilation”. That means that when the weather changes from good to bad, all you have to do is zip a few waterproof vents shut, to keep riding. To that end, it’s a stroke of street-riding genius!

Why Scorpion?

Some of the world’s best helmet and apparel designers spend countless hours developing and testing Scorpion products.

From MotoGP™ all the way to the Dakar Rally! Especially relevant is that Scorpion uses pro rider input to exceed your needs as a rider.

This formula is supported by Scorpion’s unique position in the manufacturing process. Because they own and operate their own manufacturing facilities. This allows them to make a wide variety of products. For example, their women’s motorcycle gear lines are the stuff of legend! It’s this expertise which provides the Scorpion level of quality that cannot be surpassed.

In summary, Scorpion makes helmets and street jackets that maximize comfort and safety through a variety of riding styles and conditions. And they proudly stand behind every product they make.

Scorpion Optima Jacket Features

Scorpion puts their decades of street gear experience directly into their products. So by using waterproof / breathable laminated fabrics it crafts a lightweight, seam-sealed jacket. The Optima Jacket sports large direct-core vents that can be used when it’s warm or when it gets cold and wet. Unlike traditional venting systems that send air to the outside of a liner, these direct-core vents send air directly to the wearers body and is therefore more effective.

  • Waterproof / Breathable laminate outer fabric is fully Seam Sealed
  • Clearly motorcycle rain gear that keeps you dry/comfortable
  • Double zippered center front to prevent leaks
  • Two waterproof zippered Direct Core Ventilation vents on upper torso
  • Two rear exhaust vents on lower back
  • Ample use of NightViz® Reflective on torso and arms for increased nighttime visibility
  • Waterproof Napoleon pocket in upper torso, two internal storage pockets and one internal media pocket for audio headsets, etc.
  • Exo-Tec® CE rated armor
  • Removable EverHeat® Thermal liner included
  • Comfortable micro fleece lining at collar
  • YKK® Zippers
  • 8” Jacket to pant zipper as well as belt loop fastener

Constant Innovation

No more zipping in a separate waterproof liner. An EverHeat® thermal liner is included for those chilly days or when the temperature drops. Moreover, the jacket has Exo-Tec® CE certified armor on the elbows and shoulders. Not to mention a pocket with PE foam as a back pad that can be upgraded. So if you need premium motorcycle protection, the Scorpion Optima has it in spades.

In essence, you can ride when you want, in whatever weather you want. And isn’t that the whole idea? Strap on the motorcycle boots and go? Now you can do that with extreme confidence- regardless of conditions. Boom.
