The Basilisk IR Jacket is our waterproof / breathable enduro-touring kit for trips through primarily off-road terrain. This jacket provides a balance of breathability, mobility, and protection, with a CE-A rating for abrasion, and CE-Level 2 rating for impact protection. 

The Basilisk IR Jacket combines high-performance materials with clean lines and minimalist design. The articulated fit allows freedom of motion and easy layering, and packs smaller than a traditional ADV jacket for stashing on your bike when things get hot.

Pair with the Basilisk IR Pant to complete the kit.

DESIGN

The Basilisk IR Jacket is incredibly waterproof and breathable designed to perform during athletic, technical riding through primarily off-road terrain in a wide range of conditions. The rip-stop body fabric is a highly abrasion-resistant eVent Expedition 3-layer, using eVent's proprietary Direct Venting™ technology. Heat and water vapor move directly through the air-permeable membrane, allowing your body to breathe freely and stay comfortable. With a 30,000mm on the water column (100 feet of water pressure), an MVTR of 10,000 g/m/d, .06cfm air permeability, and a DWR coating to keep you dry in wet conditions. It's the only air-permeable riding jacket we've come across, and it has the highest waterproof ratings we've seen.

We added storm flaps to all external zippers to increase the Basilisk's ability to shed water. In high abrasion areas like the shoulders, back, and elbows, we added Super Fabric® ceramic platelets on a 600D waterproof/breathable overlay for added strength. With double-layer fabric, you can crash repeatedly and still stay dry. Our zippers are top-of-the-line water-repellent YKK Vislon Aquaguard: they won't clog with dust and grime and are easy to operate one-handed with gloves.

There are two external hand pockets and two chest pockets, (one external, one internal), with six substantial vents placed strategically for maximum airflow. On the inside, we eliminated hanging liners entirely, reducing weight, bulk, and heat. In high abrasion areas like the shoulders and elbows, laminated patches protect the tricot lining.
 
The Basilisk IR Jacket features integrated RHEON™ LABS body armor, making the Basilisk IR a lightweight, breathable protected jacket for a wide range of conditions on extended trips. At its core, RHEON™ is an energy-absorbing superpolymer. Soft and flexible in its natural state, it intelligently stiffens when subjected to force. Made to feel invisible, its designed to flex to the curvature of the body for an adaptive fit.

One of the unique elements of RHEON™ is its patented algorithmic design and 3D printing process. The combination makes it both lighter, and more protective. The unique cell packing allows for better impact absorption while allowing air to flow naturally around the rider, making RHEON™ Armor the most breathable protection on the market. 

This super comfortable jacket provides a balance of breathability, mobility, and protection, with a CE-A rating for abrasion, and CE-Level 2 rating for impact protection.

Impressive

Just received the basilisk IR yesterday and I freaking ordered it the day before! Shipping was extremely prompt. I’m very picky with how garments fit and was worried, but I followed the sizing guide to a T and the jacket fits absolutely perfect. I am amazed with how soft the material is yet in the places that matter most for abrasion protection you have super fabric! That stuff is like monitor lizard skin! Very impressive, quality design, and material selections. I’ve been wearing a climb Gore-Tex jacket for quite a few years and it’s a good jacket, but it’s bulky heavy and hot whereas the Basilisk IR feels so much lighter and more protective. The integrated armor has perfect placement without the annoying mesh liner. Thanks Mosko Moto for doing it right!

Super comfy and built strong. Just picked it up a month ago and decided to test on a 90 degree day, we'll ventilated and looks great! The built in armor is a nice touch.

Perfect Touring Jacket

After wearing this in a 23 day ride that spanned 40 degrees with torrential downpours to 110 degrees it has earned its spot as my go to touring garment. Vents move lots of air and are all reachable without taking the garment off. Works well off the bike too, eliminating the extra jacket I used to bring.
