Motorcycle Gear From Head to Toe

biker  There’s tons of a gear on the market, and determining what’s right for you can be an overwhelming endeavor.

 Unfortunately, there’s not one “right” way of gearing up for a ride as everyone’s comfort and experience are different.  However there are some things to keep in mind for making the most of your next ride:

Helmets

Helmets are a riding essential as they protect your most important asset!  There’s various types of helmets, some that expose parts of the face and some that cover all of it.  Which helmet you prefer depends on you and your bike, but there’s some important helmet info to keep in mind before you commit to one.  When trying on helmets, make sure your helmet fits tight and doesn’t move. A loose helmet can actually create more head injuries if an accident were to happen.  A helmet’s exterior shouldn’t shatter or break upon impact, and the inside should always have some sort of absorbing quality. Many countries and regions have their own safety standards for helmets so make sure yours is up to code.      

 

Gloves

Gloves are also an essential safety measure for motorcyclists as they can protect your hands from any damage that may occur from gripping your handles for hours on end.  Not to mention in the even of a crash that hands are the most common way people brace their fall. Your gloves should be thin enough to feel the handlebars of your bike, and also non-slip to secure your grip.  Your gloves should also

Jackets

Motorcycle jackets serve two purposes for motorcycle riders: they look cool but are also important safety measures.  A jacket made of leather is strongly recommended as they’re flexible, terrifically protect against abrasions, and offer warmth (however water-repellent options are available if riding in a damper climate).  Motorcycle jackets are also a superb way to customize your garb. Creating custom printed patches of your name or club logos is super easy to do and super easy to adhere to a motorcycle jacket.   

Boots

Boots are probably the easiest motorcycle gear to procure because each one is tailored to the type of bike you’re riding.  Motorcycle boots differ from regular boots because they offer added protection in areas you might have overlooked. Ankle protection is a given, but motorcycle boots also offer added protection in the toes and heels.  Motorcycle boots also offer performance enhancement as they’re often anti-slip for foot pedals, and heat and oil resistant since your feet are often near the engine. Motorcycle gear doesn’t have to be complicated, when the right gear is paired with the right bike you’ll be riding easy in no time.
