A good-quality helmet is the most important piece of safety gear for any motorcyclist.
A motorcycle jacket should be made of abrasion-resistant material like leather or textile with armor in key impact areas (shoulders, elbows, and back).
Motorcycle pants should also be abrasion-resistant and may have built-in armor at the knees and hips.
Quality gloves protect your hands from abrasion and impact. Look for gloves with armor on the knuckles and palms.
Sturdy motorcycle boots provide ankle and foot protection.
Some riders opt for additional armor, such as chest protectors, spine protectors, or knee sliders, depending on their riding style and preferences.
Waterproof gear can keep you dry during wet rides. Consider investing in waterproof jackets, pants, and boot covers.
