What should you wear on your Adventure Motorcycle?

Adventure motorcycle riding can be a challenging and unpredictable activity, which is why wearing proper protective gear is essential. Here’s a list of motorcycle gear that an adventure rider should consider wearing:

  1. Helmet: A high-quality helmet is the most important piece of gear for any motorcycle rider. Look for a helmet with a full-face design, which offers the best protection for your head, face, and chin.

  2. Jacket or Base Layer with Armor: A durable motorcycle jacket or base layer with CE-Level 2 armor on the elbows, shoulders, back and chest will help protect against impact and injury.

  3. Jacket or overcoat for the elements: For wind, rain and abrasion protection, look for an overcoat or jacket that is waterproof but is also lightweight so you don’t overheat. It should be comfortable so you can move easily on the motorcycle. 

  4. Gloves: Look for gloves that offer protection for your hands and fingers. Consider gloves with reinforced palm and knuckle protection, and a waterproof membrane to keep your hands dry.

  5. Armored Pants: Look for pants with CE-Level 2 knee and hip areas and when possible additional thigh and tailbone protection.

  6. Overpants: Heavy-duty motorcycle pants made of textile materials (ie. Cordura) are recommended for adventure riding. Something that is waterproof but breathable will help keep you comfortable and dry.

  7. Boots: Adventure riding can put a lot of stress on your feet and ankles, so a sturdy pair of motorcycle boots is essential. Look for boots with reinforced toes, ankles, and soles, as well as waterproof and breathable liners. Adventure boots are taller than regular motorcycle boots and come in two options; mid-calf and full-calf. 

In addition to the above gear, you may also consider wearing protective eyewear, earplugs, and a neck brace to help protect against wind, debris, and impacts.
