Protect & Keep Cool With A Technical Riding Shirt

The Moto-Skiveez® Technical Riding Shirt is specifically designed as a warm weather base layer to keep a rider cool and comfortable. Our lightweight, long sleeve design and outstanding moisture-wicking fabric technology work together to create a highly breathable garment that prevents the natural oils and salts in perspiration from contaminating one’s riding jacket.



Fabric Specification

The main body of the shirt uses “Hydro-Sport” branded fabric. This fabric has very rapid moisture wicking properties to accelerate evaporation. Evaporation = cooling. The secondary fabric is branded “5K.” Developed to be incredibly lightweight and breathable, this fabric is positioned to maximize air flow which aids in moisture evaporation and cooling. The 5K fabric is incredibly lightweight and placed where a rider will experience maximum wind flow; along the forearms, the top of the shoulders and into the middle of the back.

    I just got back from a 3 day 1200 trip to Mesquite, Tonopah and Wendover, NV and back to Utah. I wore the Tech shirt the entire time. I wore it under a Rev-IT mesh jacket and was riding a Polaris Victory Cross Country Tour. It got around 101 at the hottest part of the trip and it worked great. I did have some problems getting the zipper to go the last inch on the collar. It just seemed to not want to go. After several tries it would finally give in. It’s a great product and the size fit perfectly.

    Take care.

    This shirt is solid! The thumb-through hole on the sleeve is a great feature. My other long sleeve shirts often get stuck on the jacket, especially when I’m sweaty, but not this one. It also breathes well which keeps me cooler. It washes and dries well, too. If I was to take a multi-day trip, I would buy two.

    I bought one of these at the 2016 BMW MOA rally in Hamburg, NY, wearing it on the entire 1,000+ mile trip back home to central Iowa. Even in July heat, I was able to leave my evaporative vest in the pannier. I washed it out at the end of each day’s ride, and it was dry the next morning. When camping, it may not dry entirely overnight. Even so, slight dampness just enhances the cooling effect. I wore mine under a British Motorcycle Gear summer jacket on a BMW R1150RT. This is a great product, and I’m going to buy a second one for the next long trip.

    I purchased this shirt at the 2017 BMW MOA International Rally from the Moto-Skiveez booth. The M-S team/family was very friendly and helpful. This is my go to riding shirt due to its comfort and functionality. Just enough mesh to breathe well in warmer temps and keep you warm in cooler temps.

    I even find myself wearing it around the house. I think I will ask for another one for Christmas!

    I wore this around camp – dint end up riding with it on. It was really great and seemed to regulate temperature well. Was comfortable and free moving.

    Just received this and have only done a couple of around-town (Kona, Hawaii) trips. They instantly felt better than what I have been used to wearing. I really like the zip-up collar. I am planning a 50-state adventure next spring and it looks like this shirt will be just the ticket for summer riding across the mainland.

    The technical riding shirt is the best piece of under jacket wear ever. I have just returned from a 10 day off road adventure in Northern Vietnam and wore a shirt everyday under my BMW Jacket. Kept me cool in a very hot climate and kept body sweat off the inside of the jacket.

    I bought two shirts and typically had to wash one after wearing it for two days. I could have stretched to three days but I was working so hard off-road on the bike I might have been pushing friendships. Unlike other synthetics they don’t seem to smell bad after one day, which was great. To wash it I just wore it in a cold shower and hung it out to dry. Slightly damp the next day aided cooling.

    Brilliant piece of kit. No hesitation in recommending for day rides or those longer adventures. I won’t travel without it.

    I got black as it hides dirt better and I think it looks ok when worn by itself. Size fits perfectly.

  8. Michael DeJanovich

    This is a great shirt. Has some stretch to it and fits snug. Recommend to go up a size. I’m 6’4 and went with 2xl and fits great. Thin enough so you dont get hot on those 90 plus sunny days and keeping sun off your arms plus it breathes well. I combine this with the traveler shirt which I wear over the technical riding shirt. Super comfortable but functional as well. Zipper on shirt adds added security so you won’t lose anything and the magnet is great for easy access stuff.
    * pros- both items compress nicely for space.
    *Quality garments
    * light weight and breathes nicely
    *access thumb holes so shirt doesn’t bunch up when putting on something over this.
    * tech riding shirt stitching color is more gray on the black shirt. Doesn’t look like t that online.

    Nice shirt! Well made, fits to size, real comfortable. Not warm enough yet for the sweat test. Would recommend.

  10. Nick V (verified owner)

    I haven’t actually had a chance to ride in it yet, but the fit is spot on, construction seems fantastic, and the fabric feels so nice and cool! The thumb holes are much appreciated for pulling through jacket sleeves. Can’t wait to try it out to see how it handles the TX heat!

  11. Bill Alspach (verified owner)

    This shirt performs as advertised and is my first choice for warm weather riding. Sizing is spot on and the shirt’s construction is top quality. You can search and look at other brands but for motorcycle use, you will not be disappointed with the Moto-Skiveez Technical Riding Shirt.

  12. Bruce Henderson (verified owner)

    I just took a ride with the Technical Riding Shirt under my Klim Latitude kit in 90 degree weather and rain. I’m extremely happy with this shirt. Before the rain hit, I was riding with all vents open and the even though I was still sweating, the shirt did it’s job perfectly. Sizing is spot on and you forget you’re wearing it once you start riding, but it’s still working for you.

    I live in southern Arizona and just used this shirt for the first time. I rode from Casa Grande to Prescott Valley and back, and this shirt delivers on its promise. Air flow was better than I expected. Made riding in high temp very bearable. Great product. So good in fact I ordered socks from you guys. Thanks for a great product.

  14. Richard Greene (verified owner)

    I just returned from a 1500 mile trip from Southern Arizona to Durango Co 4corners rally. I wore my compression socks and my shirt. First thing I noticed was I never really got super hot. A lot of the others I was riding with were dumping water on their heads and such. I also noticed that my hand never got the tingles it usually does. Fluke matbe. So one day I rode without the socks and got the tingles. Socks on again and no tingles. Plus I felt much fresher than many of the other riders. I gave a pair to my buddy and he felt much fresher also. I believe these products work very well. I will be a repeat customer.

    I wear the shirt skiing too! It could use a wider neck for medium. There aren’t many bikers medium size with necks under 14 inches. I ordered a large only for a larger neck size. Let’s see what happens. The shirt is durable.
