KTM Terra Adventure: Award-Winning Gear for All-Weather Riding

Versatile jacket and pants combo delivers massive ventilation and robust protection.

Published on 06.11.2021

Much like with their ‘Ready to Race’ bikes, KTM has been hard at work continuing to evolve their line of technical apparel. For 2021, the Orange brand is out with a new all-weather jacket and pants combo, which recently earned the coveted Red Dot Design Award. Called the Terra Adventure, the gear is the result of two years of internal development and more than 20,000 km of testing — mainly guided by off-road racer Chris Birch and world traveler Joe Pichler.

“It was back in 2018 when we came up with the first designs and ideas and decided to create this extraordinary outfit in-house,” explains Product Manager Philipp Penninger. “We felt there was a gap in the adventure segment and wanted to develop something that hadn’t really been seen before. We think we’ve succeeded judging by the reactions so far and of course the RedDot.”

The multi-layered Terra Adventure jacket has a removable 100% waterproof shell (that can be zipped to the front or folded and stored in the back pocket) as well as a retractable and independent thermal liner: all of which clips and zips together easier than a throttle twist. Woven into other sections of the jacket are SAS-TEC shoulder and elbow protectors with pockets for an optional chest and back units.

Where the jacket excels, according to KTM, is through the ventilation potential, which has been designed for optimum efficiency in the saddle. Pulling the front tabs will quickly open the chest panels while the upper tabs will release the rear shoulder sections. When the temperatures really rise – or the humidity creeps up – then rolling down the back panel delivers a load of air flow. YKK-Quickburst zippers mean swift and easy access and this advantage is augmented by the handy ‘pullers’.

There are three pockets, one of which is removable, and another is waterproof. Comfort comes with the soft-edged collar and the sleeve adjustments for the perfect taper. There is a pocket and tube guide for an optional hydration pack as well and the discreet black and orange colorway incorporates reflective elements.

The Terra Adventure pants adopt the same robust yet effective philosophy with zipped thigh vents that KTM states “will deliver cooling in the most aggressive riding stance.” The pants come with SAS-TEC protectors for the hips and knees while the leather knee area means an extra guard against heat while increasing friction with the bike’s surface. In addition, they are made from tough fabrics and tear-resistant ripstop construction; Plus the adjustable waistband and belt and leg bottoms provide a more flexible fit all-around.
