O’Neal MX – Ultra-Lite ’83 Retro Gear

If you were lucky enough to grow up during the 80’s then you witness an explosion of motocross racing with raw talent, legends in the making, and of course the need for better riding gear. O’Neal MX was present in the 80’s and offered colorful industry leading race wear and has been doing so since 1970. What we like about O’Neal’s retro gear is that is reminds of those days and the memories of watching riders like Jim Holley, Donnie Hansen, Andre Malherbe, (just to name a few) and of course who could forget all those great magazine ads.

O’Neal MX is offering an exciting line of retro riding gear labeled Ultra-Lite ’83. Outstanding graphics and style straight from 1983. This limited edition ’83 gear provides today’s demanding protection and function while offering that real retro look. The Ultra-Lite ’83 is a great choice for those vintage racers that love the retro look but prefer the modern functions of today’s riding gear. O’Neal is offering their Ultra-Lite ’83 in three colors for helmets, jersey, pants, and gloves.

The Ultra-Lite ’83 jersey features a generous cut with integrated elbow pads. The jersey is constructed with ultra breathable, vented soft mesh material for comfort. For added comfort the jersey features a v neck collar and non restricting cuffs on the sleeves. Retail $39.95

A lighter version of the current Hardwear pants is the Ultra-Lite ’83 pants that feature a full 360’ belt, plus extra room for knee braces. O’Neal added genuine top grain leather to the inner knee to provide greater heat protection. Built with heavy duty denier fabric doesn’t mean the pants restrict movement as O’Neal incorporated stretch spandex for added flex and comfort. All the critical stress areas of the pants have been triple stitched for long term durability. Retail $129.99

Having the right helmet is the most important part of your riding gear. O’Neal took the retro design of the 80’s and brought in today’s latest manufacturing technologies to bring you the 7 Series Ultra-Lite ’83 helmet. The outer shell is constructed of polycarbonate featuring custom graphics with an ultra plush removable, washable liner. O’Neal understood the need for rider comfort when they designed this helmet to have multi vents throughout the helmet to keep you cool and dry. Meets or exceeds Snell M2010, DOT, and AS standards with replaceable liners, check pads, and visors. Retail $199.99

Your retro look wouldn’t be complete without having the matching Jump Ultra-Lite ’83 gloves that will offer the least restrictive movements of all the O’Neal gloves. The palm has a silicone print for that added grip and a single vented layer of Clarino for greater comfort and feel. Retail $29.00
