Motorcycle Safety Gears For Riders 


If you ride a motorcycle, it is vital that you choose your motorcycle gear properly so that you would be able to use it for a long time and keep yourself safe as well. There are also certain essential parts of the motorcycle that I would consider such as the motorcycle tires. In this article, I'll emphasize on some of the important pieces of motorcycle gear that you should have as a biker.

Motorcycle Safety Gears

  1. Motorcycle Boots

Sometimes, boots and leather jacket might embody a menacing and bad outlook that are stereotypical to bikers, but the primary purpose of such apparels is to provide protection for the riders, not to frighten people. Motorcycle boots are necessary since they protect feet and legs of the rider from muffler burns, broken/dislocated limbs and abrasions.
  1. Motorcycle Tires

The bike tires should be durable enough to last all types of terrain. In addition to this, the motorcycle tires should not easily break during rides.
  1. Leather Jackets

Choosing a cool leather jacket will not only give you an excellent outfit to wear when biking but will also give you the chance to have adapted that would be functional as well as comfortable. Below I have discussed some of the points you should remember when choosing the right jacket for your biking needs.
The first thing you have to consider is the comfort and fit of your jacket. Make sure that this motorcycle gear will fit your body type perfectly still that you would not have any problems with loose fitting attire that may end up being a nuisance for you when riding. It is also important that you not only look cool when wearing your jacket, you also have to feel cool. This means that your jacket should have enough ventilation for you. Certain brands of jackets will give this to you. Some of these jackets have special scoops that will be able to catch the air when riding so that you would not feel the pressure. These scoops are conveniently located on the sleeves of the jacket.
  1. Leather Gloves

The reason as to why I would go for leather gloves is because it gives added protection to your hands. Because of the thickness of the material, your hands will feel less numbness and possible pain during the ride.
  1. Helmets

It is one of the most important gear you can have as a rider because it will protect you from possible accidents that you may encounter on the road. In choosing the right helmet, you should be wary about the quality and durability of your helmet. There are certain brands of helmets that you can choose from. One of the most popular brands of helmets is the Shoei helmets.
  1. Armor Panels

Panels protect a rider from impact because of the shock absorbing factor. Having a piece bike suit will also help. It’ll have everything from comfort to safety because it will not easily tear and wear down during your expeditions.  

Other Motorcycle Gear (Caps And Sunglasses)

These are extra additions for your biking apparel that will complete your motorcycling look. They are also excellent motorcycle gear for protection. The sunglasses will shield off road debris such as dust that may obstruct a biker vision. Also, the Pairs of sunglasses that come with the protection against Ultra Violet rays will aid in protecting the rider eyes from harmful sun rays.

The Importance of Leather

Leather is the best material that you can use as your riding apparel because it will give you a much more comfortable feeling when riding. This is as opposed to other materials. Denim jeans are also one of the most be commended pieces of clothing when riding your motorbike. This is because of the thickness and heaviness of the material. It will not easily tear on rough rides.


Wearing the proper attire is one of the many factors that you should remember when preparing to travel on a motorcycle. It will keep you safe and free from injuries. The Shoei helmets and all the other motorcycle gears mentioned will be a great help to you whether you are an expert or someone who is just beginning to ride motorbikes. Knowing all the different types of motorcycle gear and motorcycle tires will help you become the best rider not only because of your skill in riding the bike but also because of the thought that you put into your own safety when riding.
