G-Line Women's Motorcycle Gear Announces Multicity Showcase in January

TUSTIN, Calif.--Jan. 1, 20068, 2006--You've heard the buzz on G: the first line of women's motorcycle gear to offer German-engineered protection in stylish designs -- made specifically for women riders by women riders. The G-Line offers gear for all types of street riding as well as several pieces that are perfect for wearing on or off the motorcycle.

This month, in four select cities, women will be able to see, feel, try on and experience the cutting-edge G-Line in person. Here is a special opportunity to feel the difference beautiful high-quality materials, hi-tech comfort armor, specially tailored fit and cutting-edge design make in the realm of women's motorcycle gear.

Now more than ever, women worldwide are riding motorcycles for transportation and recreation. This growing interest has fueled the demand for protective motorcycle apparel that is both fashionable and made with a woman's fit. Fairchild Sports has responded to this demand by launching "G" in 2005.

"The G-Line is the product of a lot of listening to women riders and women in general," said Elizabeth Rakestraw, vice president and general manager of Fairchild Sports. "And we haven't stopped listening. We will continue to make improvements and subtle changes as needed with a goal to make the road a more comfortable and safe place for women to be."

The interest in G-Line apparel is extending beyond women riders, now including passengers and even women who just enjoy the fashionable motorcycle-inspired styling. "My La Jolla jacket is one of the coolest things I have found to wear this fall," said Ashley Snyder, vice president of a real estate company in Newport Beach, Calif. "I don't know how often I'll get on a bike this year, but this jacket is just incredible." "G" features designs for "hard women," "soft women" and every woman in between, made of various materials including oiled goatskin, perforated leather, waterproof nylon and stretchy, abrasion-resistant cordura. The line is made to fit women's bodies, "taking the curves into account." It is not just men's gear in pretty colors. "It is rare to see a product that women riders love but could also be worn when you want to dress up and go out," said Bonnie Strawser, founder of Femmoto, a leading women's track day event. The G-Line's genesis comes from Hein Gericke, a world leader in motorcycle apparel founded nearly 40 years ago in Germany, with more than 150 branded stores throughout Europe.
