DNA OF MODEKA
The family business – located in Beckum / North Rhine Westphalia – is celebrating in 2016/2017 it´s 70 anniversary.
In these many years Modeka International GmbH developed the brand and motorcycle garment Modeka which is today spread in whole Europe and in some parts of South America and Asia.
The Modeka Team – starting in 3rd generation - looks back into a past of 70 years. The products were not always motorcycle gear. The starting point was the own tannery and the production of leather and leather gloves. But shortly after this first motorcycle coats were developed and the closeness to the motorcycle branche was born. First racing leather suits have been designed, developed and produced under the name „Belmo“ which was later changed to Modeka. Next to the motorcycle branche the company equipped quite early the military and police. This connection is still today working. Till today gloves, leather jackets or suits for motorcycle riders have been produced for the German country. Most known is the classical grey pilot jacket which is demanded from the whole world.
Main focus of the family-company is definitely the brand Modeka. The collection for Touring, Adventure and Cruiser riders consists of textile and leather suits, boots, gloves and some accessory. Protection, Comfort & All-Weather-Practicability are the important features. Technical partners from Germany, for example SAS-TEC & Sympatex support the functionality.
Many Modeka styles have been awarded by the motorcycle press which are listed below “Tested” on the website.
But most proud is the Modeka Team on their Modeka on Tour: Real riders are sending awesome photos from their trips – equipped with Modeka gear. With feedback of these riders, Modeka garment gets improved every year. And all other people out there get inspired for future expeditions. The collection of Modeka on Tour is available in the catalogue, online on the website, on facebook or on youtube.
The whole Modeka Team looks forward for many more on-Tour-riders, for a wonderful motorcycle season and lot´s fun.
Coming back to the jubilee of 70 years – Modeka is celebration the anniversary with a special jacket called August 70. This stylish vintage leather jacket combines the old with the new. The name for this jacket results from the name of the founder, the first generation.
