Like a lot of good things in life, it all started with a motorcycle. An obsession with motorcycles and motorcycle gear morphed into the launch of Joe Rocket in 1994, manufacturing quality motorcycle jackets. Joe Rocketâs âPhoenixâ nylon jacket sold a hundred thousand pieces because the perforated, fully armored jacket was the first to provide serious hot weather protection and keep the rider cool. Then after sponsoring 17-year-old Nicky Hayden, Joe Rocket became etched in motorcycle racing culture. Joe Rocket went on to expand its motorcycle gear to include helmets, pants, luggage, boots, and gloves – all designed ahead of the curve of protective motorcycle apparel.
