- THE BUSHMASTER -
DEVELOPED FOR OFF-ROAD DIRT RIDING
Lightweight, Full Armour, Max Ventilation
After three years of pre-production testing, including some of the highest forms of off-road racing, TekRider is proud to launch our latest TekVest designed for off-road dirt riding.
The Bushmaster Tekvest brings the protection and comfort needed for trail riding and racing, whilst providing plenty of airflow for ventilation in hot weather.
90% of the inner and outer shell is made from mesh while the armour is perforated for greater ventilation.
STRONG & FLEXIBLE HYBRID ARMOUR
Proprietary TekVest armour is a UHMW hybrid that is designed to keep riders safe on the trail in all seasons. Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) plastic is highly cut resistant while remaining flexible in cold temperatures.
TekVest hand laminates custom milled UHMW to an energy absorbing vinyl nitrile foam, adding impact resistance and energy absorbing properties to create a strong yet flexible armour that delivers a level of comfort and protection not otherwise available in the off-road world.
Real world example of UHMW cut resistance.
Snowmobiles are much heavier than motorcycles, and often travel at trail speeds exceeding 80 mph, with potential for incredible force loads.
This customer’s 650 pound snowmobile landed on him while the spinning carbide studded track tore his jacket off.
Resulting damage to his helmet and jacket were severe, but no studs penetrated his TekVest!
TekVest exclusive energy absorbing hybrid UHMW armour.
360/4D armour coverage around rib cage & vital organs when TekPack installed
Hyper-breathable inner & outer mesh
Removable shoulder pads
9mm vents for maximum breathability
Integrated hydra-pack hose mount
Four standard tool pockets
XL YKK zipper for maximum durability
Centre “cooler” clip for cinch fit & flexible ventilation
Adjustable side straps for custom fit
TekPack mounting system
This vest is designed to carry quick access tools up front (on the outside of the armour), so there is no need to remove the vest to perform any minor bike repairs on the fly. The pockets are also perfectly sized to pack protein bars or other food for quick snacking.
BushMaster TekPack Mounting System
We know many riders carry external backpacks for additional storage. Traditional backpacks can be difficult to secure and are often load shifting. TekPacks are secured directly to the vest, limiting their movement.
With TekPacks, the TekVest becomes load bearing, helping distribute the weight more evenly while eliminating pressure points associated with backpack straps.
Traditional backpacks restrict airflow around the rider's back, contributing to rider overheating.
BushMaster’s raised pack rails create an airspace between the rider and the TekPack, significantly improving airflow and cooling capability.
The rear panel is designed to be ridden with a pack. The armour panel has our soft armour foam removed and is spaced off the back to create an air pocket for increased cooling and comfort. The pack then acts as the soft armour component.
Any Tekvest can be upgraded from stock solid colours to complete custom graphics for an additional fee.
- Off-road motorcycle specific design provides maximum 360-degree full-armour protection (when wearing TekPack) without restricting rider movement.
Motorcycle specific cut provides comfort for stand-up & seated riding.
- Ventilation is maximized with hyper-breathable inner and outer mesh and our largest 9mm vents to enhance airflow through the vest.
- Quick detach shoulder pads included with BushMaster
Convenient front zipper allows rider to put or remove while wearing a helmet.
- Standard front pockets provide secure storage for tools you want ready access to.
- D-ring attachment points included allow integrated use of optional Tekrider 3.0L Trail, 8.0L Enduro or even 12.0L Mountain packs.
- Integrated TekPack mounting system helps distribute pack loads across entire vest to reduce pressure points and eliminate pack movement.
- BushMaster specific raised rails on back of vest improve airflow between rider and TekPack.
Built in hydra-pack hose sleeve over left shoulder secures loose hose while positioning the bite valve in the centre of the rider's chest for quick access.
- Hose sleeve large enough to handle most insulated hoses.
- Upper chest "cooler-clip" helps secure vest when zipper is partially opened to allow more airflow.
Ultra-tough UHMW hybrid armour throughout, retains the legendary TekVest comfort, fit and quality construction.
- Compatible with most neck braces, including Leatt GPX.
- Entire vest can be customized with graphics, names, and logos.
Lightweight 4D protection geared towards the higher speeds generated by off-road motorcycles!
