About the owners of Roadskin, motorcycle jean specialists
Ian started riding a motorbike at the age of 11 after buying a clapped-out BSA Bantam for £1. He straightaway began bombing around a field near Westerham in Kent and hasn’t stopped riding since, both for pleasure and, for many years, as a courier. He is a proud finisher of the Red Bull Romaniacs five-day race, picking up a broken collarbone in the process.
Nicky’s passion is off-road riding. She says, ‘In 1993, having passed my test on a Wednesday afternoon on a KMX125, we drove straight to Wales where I competed in the Bracken Rally on the Saturday. Bonkers! I remember that I spent a lot of my time with my bike upside down next to a river trying to pump the water out of the air box - happy days!’
Ian and Nicky, who are currently planning to do the TET Trails through France, use their many collective years of biking knowledge and experience to design motorcycle clothing fit for function, safety, style and comfort. The inspiration for Roadskin came about when they realised that they could make premium, high-quality jeans that were tougher than the rest, and that they could be delivered directly to customers at low prices.
Roadskin is a small, family-run company that prides itself on its personal service. Ian and Nicky are always at the end of the phone for help and advice, so that you end up with the motorcycle clothing that’s right for you. They look forward to hearing from you soon.
