Aero King of the Road
Aero designed the King of the Road back in the 1990s. They took all the best features from the classic angle-zip bike jackets of the periods between 1946 and 1960 and put them together to make the perfect 50's style bike jacket. The left front features a sweeping D pocket with puller-zip and curved patch pocket, while on the left-hand side they fitted a zipped hand warmer pocket. The side panels have zip entry pillion passenger pockets, a feature of some of the finest jackets of the period where a zip opening in the side panel allowed a passenger to put their hands inside the riders jacket for security and warmth. The angle of the front zip is smaller than on other Aero bike jackets, which makes the lapel smaller. It's amazing how often original bike jackets from this period mixed the zippers, utilizing the most ideal zip for each job. We have done the same.
The belt is a full sized detachable belt, which spreads through a cleverly designed slot in the kidney panel, as can be seen in the top, left hand corner photo. The back has a top and bottom yoke with points, between which Aero fitted a bi-swing center panel.
The King of the Road can also be made in a two-tone version. The most pleasing combinations are Vicenza Horsehide Black and Seal, as well as Black with Brown Chromexcel Steerhide!
