Introduction

Hyosung Aquila Pro650 front and back view

Rynox has been on a roll lately with its range of riding gear. From new off-road gear to base layers, a lot has been introduced in the last few months. In the series of these launches, the brand also added another product to its artillery, the Tornado Pro 4. Now, the Rynox Tornado series has been around for ages, but this one is the latest edition.

Plus, we have received the Tornado Pro 4 jacket for a long-term test, so we can tell you if it's worth the money. But before that, let's take a look at what it has to offer, and what we plan to do with it.

Construction

It's quite evident that the Tornado Pro 4 jacket can be used daily as well as for touring, although Rynox has classified it in the latter category. The one you see here is an M-size unit and fits my 5’10 structure snugly.

The construction consists mostly of mesh with textile and Invista Cordura panels on the elbow and shoulders for abrasion resistance. Then you also get zippers at the lower back to attach your riding pants, if need be. Elsewhere, you will also find reflective panels on the sleeves.

The impressive part comes now. Rynox has equipped the Tornardo Pro 4 with Level 2 protection across the jacket. Right from the shoulders to the elbow to the back and even the chest get CE Level 2 protectors. Rynox offers the Tornado Pro 4 in five colour options – Black, Black Orange, Black Red, Black Hi-Viz Green, and Black White. We are testing the Black one.

Features

Hyosung Aquila Pro650 inside pocket

The Rynox Tornado Pro 4 is built like a sport touring jacket and we think would suit various riding types. It gets fasteners on the wrist (with a zip), forearm, upper arm, and waist. Then, you also get a two-way zip mechanism.

For the pocket storage, you get two compartments on the outside, one on the left inside, and another smaller pocket on the right inside near the chest area. That said, it comes sans any sort of liners for the rain or winter.

What's next?

It is already monsoon and we plan to test the Rynox Tornado Pro 4 throughout the season. This will give us a fair idea of how easy it is to wash, dry, and repeat. Moreover, we will put it through various riding scenarios, be it touring, a quick spin around the ghats, or even off-road if an opportunity presents itself.

Following this will be the winters where we get to understand its ventilation or otherwise. Lastly will be our conclusion report where we tell you if spending Rs. 8,950 on the Tornado Pro 4 is worth it.
