The company was launched by Ian Gillett to design and manufacture top quality motorcycle clothing. Its description reads:
“[Arc-On is] an established, award-winning, British motorcycle clothing company, arc-on want to introduce an innovative new glove design to their existing range of performance technical wear. The design is designed to be the first glove in the world to be constructed with pieces of Forcefield body armour within the glove, ensuring arc-on continues to offer class-leading performance.”
It’s currently products (gloves, race suits and textiles) have been worn and endorsed by journalists from publications such as RiDE magazine, Fast Bikes magazine, Motorcycle News, Performance Bikes magazine, Two Wheels Only magazine, Bike magazine and multiple smaller publications/websites.
Arc-On has also won two industry awards: RiDE magazine’s “Best Buy” for gloves and Fast Bikes’ “Best Buy” for current race suit. The company revealed:
“The RiDE Magazine ‘Best Buy’ award was achieved by outscoring 21 other gloves for sale, in a combination test comprising 6 months of wearing the glove and the submission – of the worn pair – to the SATRA lab, to be put through the rigorous CE approval testing. Our gloves passed the CE test with ease.”
Explaining details about the new gloves, Arc-On stated:
“Our new glove design will be constructed to the same advanced technical specification as our current award-winning glove but with a crucial addition; we have designed the glove to incorporate flexible pieces of the Forcefield body armour. To the best of our knowledge this will be a world’s first in motorcycle glove design, it will improve the performance of an already class-leading product and will aim to guarantee us another round of PR exposure.”
The funds will also be used to purchase stock of this product, to support its launch with an advertising campaign in print and on the web, while also continuing to develop other new items for the range.
Since its launch Arc-On’s campaign has raised over £35,000. It is set to close at the end of July.
