Got an email today saying they are done. Never really took off in the past 10+ years and had what, 4 owners? We did sell the product for a while some years back and stopped.

Best of luck to the owners in their next business venture. See their email below.

Corazzo Design
Corazzo Design North America: Store Closing
It is with great sadness that we announce the closing and liquidation of Mods & Rockers LLC, the North American distributor of Corazzo riding gear.

This was not an easy decision to come to and something we have been discussing for a long time. Initially when we took the brand on, we had time to dedicate to growing the business and brand but now that Nici and myself are both working full time in other careers, our ability to dedicate the time and attention the brand needs has been greatly diminished.

What's next?

Within the next week we will begin our store closing sale. We will also continue to look for potential candidates to take over Corazzo's North American distribution so all of our current customers can enjoy Corazzo products and support.


In order to make either of these things happen we need your help. If you know of a company that you think Corazzo would be a good fit for or someone who you know needs a great deal on a riding jacket, please send them our way.

Direct all distribution inquiries to sales@corazzo.net and individual customers to https://www.corazzo.net/


Effective immediately, we will no longer be accepting returns or exchanges on anything as our goal is to liquidate every last piece of inventory before the end of the year.
If you need something we no longer have in stock, you will need to order it from Corazzo direct from Australia. Any warranty questions will also need to be directed towards them. They can be found at http://www.corazzo.net.au/


We have loved working with all of our passionate customers and dealers to further our goals of increasing rider comfort and protection with Corazzo's full line of rugged and stylish products.We hope you continue to ride and enjoy them as well.


Peter & Nici

Mods & Rockers, LLC



Thank you everyone for supporting Corazzo over the years.

Keep riding with the shield.

Corazzo was a good idea, and had some good products (original shop jacket?). But none of their jackets ever fit me, so, too bad?

That is a bummer, than you for the heads-up!

I have a their Speedway jacket for the cooler months and a Ventata for the scorchy ones. Well-made, comfortable gear.

Gonna miss 'em as much as I miss Cee Bailey; bought a bunch of their screens and then they clocked out too.

Different company I believe. Kind of like we have a Target and the USA has a Target, but they are completely different companies.

The US (Minneapolis) distributor for Corazzo Design, an Australian company, is closing, I believe. Corazzo products will still be available elsewhere.

My Corazzo jacket was made in Canada. Nerd emoticon

Mine too - I have an OG shop jacket, purchased at San Jose Vespa in 2007. It's made in Canada, and is still going strong!

Yeah, none of their jackets or gloves ever really fit me right, and for the price, their jackets seemed to lack many of the nicer details.

My cold weather gloves are great.

Unfortunately they never made any jackets in tall sizes, so it's a bit less of a sting.

I was wondering if something was up, as they haven't been restocking for quite some time.

Glad I grabbed a 6.0 when it was on sale. My wife bought me the winter gloves a couple of years back, and they're rock solid. I grabbed a silver Ventata this past summer, and it's been fantastic. I guess I'll just have to wait and see if they wear out before I do...

Still, a shame to see good products fail in the marketplace...

I've reconsidered my response. Even though their jackets didn't fit me, it's still disappointing to see another M/C gear company close especially one as small as Corazzo was (seemed to be).

Just to reiterate - only the North American *distributor* for Corazzo is closing up shop. The company itself will live on, but we (in the U.S.) will just have a much harder time sourcing their products than previously...

The website does now state that all sales are final with no refunds or exchanges. No new lower sale prices, however. Maybe they are hoping that they can move merchandise at full price for a while now that word is out they are closing? That is what I would do if I was not desperate to liquidate remaining inventory.

But, their email of earlier this week talks about such markdowns and letting your friends know they can get a great deal on a jacket (paraphrasing). Such things are usually slow to develop, but have been monitoring.

I picked up the 6.0 a few weeks back when they were running a 30% Off sale, and, even though I'm in the "big and tall" camp, the XXL fit me just fine and is a great jacket.

Sorry to see them go.
