Garibaldi was established in Barcelona in 1972, initially mainly manufacturing leather motorcycle suits, and importing and distributing Italian brands such as Nolan Group in Spain. During the 1980's Garibaldi was accredited with manufacturing the leather racing suits for infamous riders such as Ricardo Tormo, Sito Pons, Aspar, Alex Crivillé, Alex Barros, Carlos Checa, Sete Gibernau, Toni Elias, Dani Pedrosa, Jordi Tarrés, Marc Colomer, Carlos Mas, David Checa and others. Most of them World Champions during the period, resulting in a total 18 World Champion titles achieved wearing Garibaldi leathers.
Today Garibaldi is part of the Nolan Group and produces an extensive range of textile jackets and leather and textile gloves. Using the knowledge garnered from more than 30 years experience at the pinnacle of motorcycle racing, each and every garment is manufactured from the highest quality materials from around the world, to exacting standards in order to provide garments that enable the highest levels of safety for motorbike riders.
For nearly all of Garibaldi's life they have produced the Original jacket, a waxed oilskin cotton jacket to protect the rider from the elements, updated with modern material technologies that enhance its safety in a traditional retro vintage style similar to the Belstaff Trialmaster. This and its modern sibling, the Heritage 1972, can all be found in the Salt Flats Clothing store, where we have compiled the best collection of Garibaldi's retro vintage style jackets and gloves for todays modern safe riding.
