How to choose the right motorcycle gear

For motorcyclists in California, staying safe is an essential concern. This entails selecting the right gear from head to toe to ensure protection remains comprehensive in the event of an accident. While it may seem cut and dry, there are many different types of gear to choose from, which can make finding the right type of equipment a bit difficult.

According to RideApart.com, finding the proper motorcycle footwear is just one concern. During a crash, feet are particularly vulnerable, and a lack of adequate support can prove extremely damaging. In this case, a pair of sturdy boots are the best bet. This should include reinforced protection over the ankles as well as shins, and sturdy soles that can’t be easily twisted during a crash.

Jackets and pants should also offer a good level of protection. When it comes to jackets, look for fabrics that are tear-resistant (such as leather) with hardy stitching to prevent the jacket from coming apart. Pants should also be constructed from a robust material, and should have an increased level of protection within the knees and shins. Pants should allow a full range of motion to enable the rider to operate a motorcycle in a reasonable manner.

Helmetcheck.org offers some helpful tips on finding a well-fitting motorcycle helmet. There are a few things to look for when trying on a helmet, such as how snug a fit the helmet offers. Once the helmet is on, place a hand on either side and give it a pull in several different directions. It should offer a tight fit, and should not be able to be removed without undoing the strap. However, a helmet that is too tight (which can be identified by any discomfort during wear or indentations in the face or head) will provide uncomfortable and therefore ineffective.
