Tucano Urbano – Italian style

The folks from Tucano Urbano have been working hard under the direction of their new CEO, Diego Sgorbati.

The brand specialises in all things urban; their roots are in keeping people dry and stylish on scooters in Milan – but over the years they have extended their range for all types of motorcycling.

Here at Overland we continuously rave about their Nano Rainwear which we’ve worn in many countries and all sorts of conditions. Separate over-trousers and jacket keep you perfectly dry and rolls up to fit in your pocket.

POLEarlier this year we got our hands on their POL short wax jacket which one of our team has been wearing all summer to criss-cross East and Western Europe. Lightweight, waterproof, armoured and very comfortable. Our in-house arbiter of style says it’s the first textile jacket he’s worn that feels and functions as good as it looks.

Tucano now produce complete ranges of clothing  and helmets… all beautifully designed and made. Their Milanese heritage also shows in their women’s range. It’s definitively feminine, not pink, fits extremely well – three fitting types – and is equally desirable.

Their new Autumn catalogue is now available. Download and prepare to be wowed. It’s possible to travel and look good off the bike too.
