Product Description

If you've been looking for the best, you've found it.  The GMX Arrow is Taichi's flagship leather jacket and has virtually every premium feature available.  The leather quality, construction and armor are outstanding.  The included back armor is a CE Certified Level 2 piece that is normally almost a $50 upgrade on it's own.  The removable windstop liner is ultra effective without adding any bulk.  The ventilation with it removed can only be beat by going to pure mesh textile. Pair it with one of several Taichi leather pants for a completely track worthy 2-piece combo.  When you hear people raving about how good Taichi leather products are, this is what they're talking about.

  1. Worthy successor to GMX-Motion 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Aug 2015

    For reference, I'm a frequent canyon rider (daily in season), occasional commuter, occasional longer-distance rider (350-400 mi at a time) and average 14-18,000 miles a year on my two supersport bikes. So, like my helmets, I like to rotate my protective gear, but prefer not to deviate the fit or style by a lot.

    I have the new GMX Arrow black/yellow jacket and the matching black pants. This is my 4th GMX series suit since 2007, and every one of the previous ones has worn very well, except for a minor cosmetic issue with the previous generation black GMX jacket, with the classic yellow shoulder sliders. This particular suit has had most of the silkscreened graphics peel off both top and bottom after the first year.

    Another GMX suit of the same model year, but in the red/black/white scheme, has had no such issues, so perhaps this was a one-off problem.

    The new GMX Arrow jacket retains the fit and finish of the previous model GMX Motion, but has a refined (much better) top zipper strap, slightly better cuff fit, and better pocket zipper pulls. The windstop liner seems similar but is no longer color-keyed to the jacket, which is not an issue. This time, it keys to the cuff with two instead of three snaps.

    The hard shoulder and elbow pads are a perfect, secure fit.

    The T-Dry liner is comfortable, reminding me of my Taichi "Mawus" one piece liner suit material.

    Surprisingly, despite the new, smaller shoulder sliders (which delete the screened air intakes) the new jacket flows more air, probably due to the better vented, upgraded back protector.

    The pants are excellent fit and finish with better calf fit (a bit more roomy) but a bit less room in the thighs. The waist seems to have a bit more room.

    One disappointment- the velcro flap that covered the top of the zipper on the previous Motion pants has been deleted. This doesn't actually seem to affect anything of importance, but I rather liked having the zipper tab covered.

    The jacket deletes the twin interior pockets of the previous model, which in turn had deleted the chest pocket of the original GMX Motion. Not a concern to me as I never used both pockets at the same time.

    The remaining interior left-side pocket is perfectly placed for a phone and an iPhone 6 Plus fits perfectly well. As before it has an excellent and secure Velcro closure, but seems less apt to snag the lining than the previous model.

    All in all, the pants and jacket constitute a well built, comfortable suit for the serious street rider who can appreciate the Taichi heritage and value without going all the way with a much less convenient one-piece on the street.

    As before I'm a very happy repeat customer of Taichi. (But I sort of miss the old shoulder logo... even though the new one rocks. A lot of heritage there!)
