Ducati Explorer, the apparel line that transforms travel into pure emotion

  • A breathable and protective touring-enduro suit dedicated to the DesertX Rally and Multistrada universes
  • A bold and trendy look, inspired by rallying for Ducati men and women who want to tackle adventure with maximum safety and comfort
  • A complete collection of technical and lifestyle garments, in which Ducati red is enhanced by blocks of colour inspired by the DesertX Rally

Borgo Panigale (Bologna, Italy), 6 June 2024 – When the desire for adventure calls, nothing can stop it. It doesn't matter whether it's the journey of a lifetime, or an afternoon off-road excursion: to fully enjoy every moment in the saddle, the right clothing is essential, combining safety and comfort in all conditions. The new Ducati Explorer line of apparel was born in this spirit, inspired by the style of the DesertX Rally and developed with the support of the same test riders who contributed to the creation of the most adventurous Ducati.

The centrepiece of this collection is a technical suit consisting of jacket and trousers, also available in a variant with a fit suitable for women. The line, designed to offer a trendy total look as well as high performance, is completed by the Ducati Explorer T7 boots and finds a perfect match, within the 2024 Ducati Apparel catalogue, with the popular Atacama C2 gloves. Finally, the Explorer collection is characterized by a "colour-block" theme, which extends to a series of casual garments with a contemporary taste, ideal for expressing one's adventurous and Ducati-branded personality even in everyday life.

Rally style and touring comfort: the Ducati Explorer suit
The colour blocks that make the Ducati Explorer suit so bold are the result of Drudi Performance's creativity and recall the graphics of the DesertX Rally. The rally aesthetics and practicality offered by the spacious pockets and detachable sleeves are accompanied by all the features that a complete touring suit must have to guarantee safety on the road, without sacrificing adaptability to all outside conditions.

For this reason, the jacket and trousers are made of high-tenacity water-repellent Cordura, combined with a detachable second internal layer, equipped with an H2Out® fabric membrane, laminated in three layers and which is waterproof, breathable and windbreaking. Thanks to these characteristics, in the case of the jacket it is possible to wear the membrane either under the main jacket, with a windproof function, or over it, as rainproof. When the temperature starts to heat up, ventilation becomes essential to continue riding without distractions: on the jacket there are adjustable air vents on the arms and chest, as well as a large extractor on the back, and there is no shortage of ventilation openings also on the trousers, at thigh height.

The comfort of the Ducati Explorer suit is also guaranteed by the many details aimed at having the best fit, such as the drawstring adjustment at the bottom of the jacket, the neoprene cuffs of the same or the large adjustments with triple Velcro™ on the bottom of the trousers. This complete and functional equipment also applies to women Ducati riders, thanks to a version specifically designed for the female universe which offers the best dedicated fitting.

Finally, safety is guaranteed both by the CE certification on the entire garment enjoyed by the jacket and trousers, and by the reflective details that increase rider visibility, while adding an additional touch of style. As standard, the jacket and trousers include semi-rigid protections in the shoulder, elbow, knee and hip areas, while the jacket has an internal pocket on the back designed to accommodate the Ducati Warrior 2 back protector.

Maximum protection: Explorer T7 boots and Atacama C2 gloves
Still on the subject of safety, the Explorer T7 boots and the Atacama C2 gloves complete this adventure-oriented outfit, paying further attention to the protection and technicality of the garments designed for intense use and in demanding conditions.

The boots derive directly from experience in off-road competition, and offer an abrasion-resistant microfibre upper, injected plastic protectors on the toe, heel, shin and ankle, and the classic Velcro four-hook closure. Naturally they are CE certified, and are not afraid of even the bumpiest of off-road tracks, without neglecting details dedicated to comfort, such as the gusset zone at the Achilles tendon, the soft foam inserts in the ankle and neck areas of the foot, or the anatomical insole.

The Atacama C2 gloves are designed for adventure and touring use, when temperatures are milder. The colour of the Spandex fabric back with leather trim pairs best with the colour-blocked styling of the Explorer suit, while the overall durability of these gloves is achieved both through the permanent, sweat-proof colours on the back and the kangaroo leather used for the palm, lightweight to give sensitivity on the grips, but highly resistant to abrasion to optimize safety. As it is a summer glove, thermal comfort, also obtained through useful air vents on the fingers, is combined with the safety given by the certification for the PVC protections on the knuckles and the SuperFabric material reinforcements at the base of the thumb. The product is completed by a touchscreen insert on the index fingertip, and reflex print details which are essential in situations with poor visibility.

Explorer design for leisure
The theme of Ducati red, enhanced by the colour-block look and inspired by the DesertX Rally, also extends to the Explorer line of casual garments, designed for all Ducatisti who want to maintain contact with adventure even once they get off the saddle. The perfect match that they create with the Explorer suit is immediate, offering the possibility of creating a contemporary and impactful partner look, even as a couple if so desired.

The line consists of two sweatshirts for him, a white half-zip sweatshirt and a black crewneck, and a full-zip sweatshirt for her. Likewise, the T-shirts are also available in white or black for him, and in black for her. Finally, two baseball-style caps complete the picture by taking up the same graphic themes, including Ducati customizations on the back and the unmistakable reflex prints present on each garment, which help to define the personality of this line.

The new Ducati Explorer line is available at the Borgo Panigale company's sales network and online on the Shop.Ducati.com website.

On the official Ducati.com website you can access the new configurator to discover all the DesertX accessories and book a test ride.
