Dakar Dry2Dry™ Air 1.0

Dakar Dry2Dry™ Air 1.0

Tuesday, 8 February 2022



The heat can be almost as brutal when crawling through town as when crossing the Sahara, so the Dakar Air jacket has been designed to keep you cool regardless. Huge, full-length mesh panels (front, rear and down the arms) provide welcome airflow even at low speeds.

Equally, rain can ruin any journey, so the Dakar also offers a very special waterproofing solution: a removable lightweight liner which is fully waterproof, highly breathable and made from stretch materials with a mesh inner, so you don’t even know it’s there.

And because you could be riding flat-out on rough desert roads or weaving through slippery city streets, this comfort makes no concession to safety. 

As well as huge adjustability to ensure a perfect fit and 360Ëš reflective detailing for night-time visibility, the chassis is built from Oxford’s toughest HD POLY. This is welded to reinforced overlays using hidden structure stitching to form a protective shell, which comfortably exceeds the CE AA standard.

Paris or Dakar… your choice.



Designed for the sports-adventure rider who demands versatility from their summer gear, the Dakar’s highly ventilated HD Poly outer shell and fully removable Dry2Dry waterproof lining make it ideal for those days where weather can be predictably unpredictable. Comfortable, moisture-free riding is ensured by the innate breathability of Oxford’s Dry2Dry technology, while Active Construction throughout allows the wearer full freedom of movement.
