Merlin Explorer Collection
The Merlin Explorer Collection has been designed to complement the rise in accessible, do-it-all motorcycles, along with the increased desire to get out and travel thanks to nearly 18 months of COVID-19 lockdowns. Also behind the design – the rise of younger motorcyclists, with Instagram’s heritage scene rapidly growing and the build-up of motorcycling in popular culture encouraging more young people to get their licences. Explorer offers rugged styling, durability and protection while incorporating the signature Merlin styling using only the best materials and components, such as Halley Stevensons® waxed cotton, D3O® armour and Cordura®.
Merlin Mahala Raid D3O® Explorer Trouser
Pair the Merlin Mahala Raid trouser with the matching Mahala Raid jacket and Mahala Raid glove for a comfortable, warm-weather compatible riding set. The trousers are constructed from an abrasion-resistant Cordura®, which has been designed exclusively for Merlin use. Mesh panelling to the front and back of the thighs drag in cool air, while D3O® protectors to the hips and knees offer protection where it’s needed most. Finished off with subtle Merlin-branded snap studs and high-quality YKK® zippers throughout. The Mahala Raid trousers and jacket can be connected using the jacket-to-jean connection zipper. Available in sizes S-4XL in a choice of regular or short leg lengths.
Caring for your Mahala Raid trousers
To care for your jacket, remove all armour from the shoulders, elbows and back and also any removable inner liners. Use a lint-free brush or cloth to really get into any especially dirty areas, then hand-wash the jacket with a mild or diluted detergent in lukewarm water. Full care information can be found in the dedicated care guide here: Merlin Wash & Care.
