...your weirdness has a reason

Gina is a fashion designer in real life. We knew this from the beginning, because we talked about her regular fashion label and profession - but we didn't expect her to do motorcycle fashion as well! But now it's here, the online shop for Gina's label CHAKKABOOM!

So when she told us about her new motorcycle fashion label, we talked to Gina about exactly what her fashion label is all about - and where you can buy the high quality motorcycle fashion she designs and makes. That's what she told us about her fashion label CHAKKABOOM:

"As a fashion designer, I was packed with ambition from the moment I got a motorcycle myself but couldn't find the perfect jacket. That meant for me of course: to accept the challenge to design a jacket that is chic and female, practical and functional, offers the necessary protection and above all is something different.

So the jacket should appeal to cruisers and racers who don't always want to reach for the black leather jacket. The focus is therefore only on women, as there is so little on offer for women bikers and more and more women are beginning to bike.

Accordingly, the first two prototypes are not black, but in a beautiful vintage grey with blue and a mottled green with grey Schladminger Loden. The loden-leather combination is an unusual combination and should reflect my Austrian roots. I have always enjoyed working with Loden. Loden has very good properties which have now been used for the jacket. It cools on hot days and warms up in the wind. The additional Teflon coating lets rainwater drip off. Loden cleans itself, like wool in general. The jacket can also be worn without having to sit on the bike. For the jackets I work together with a company, which is specialized in racing clothing. So highest quality and protection can be guaranteed."

The name Chakkaboom is a pun that goes hand in hand with "female empowerment" in its onomatopoeia and power, with which Gina can identify very well: "Women who do their own thing, in the sense of girl motorcycle gangs like The Petrolettes, The Curves, The Litas and others...".

Now you can buy the jackets in the freshly launched online shop! They are produced on demand, not mass-produced - quality first! As a customer you will gladly accept the waiting time if you can wear a great motorcycle jacket made by Gina! Find out more on www.chakkaboom.com

GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN PT.3 - COUNTRY HATTRICK ON THE MOTORBIKE

Published by GINA DREWES at November 16, 2018 in Tours
Carinthia is the southernmost province of Austria and I grew up here. The borders to Italy and Slovenia are a stone's throw away and so I spent a part of my childhood at the sea. However it also felt like years in the car, since my mum made the country roads unsafe with her green lame duck at that time. What always led to bare nerves of all fellow travellers and could only be made good again with a visit to...

(Stubai) - Brenner Pass - Jaufen Pass - ( Val Passiria - Vinschgau) - Stilfser Joch - Gaviapass (what a rough, beautiful pass!) - Tonale Pass - (Val du Nons) Mendel Pass - (Bolzano - Sarntal) - Penserjoch: This 'classic' round is impressive and spectacular again and again. The weather was wonderful on this Saturday, so I spontaneously decided to go for a ride early in the morning. An 'Iron Man' stage at the beginning of autumn - a demanding and strenuous one-day trip.

'It's dangerous you say? ... I AM THE DANGER!' But the understanding laugh does not come and also my girlfriend does not find me funny. 'Excuse me. I am tedesco.' No, I can't save anything with that either, I'd better shut up. To ride a moped in Bali you don't need a driving license and obviously no humour...
