Nothing beats the feeling of getting your knee down whilst carving through corners, just ask Tyrell. Having the right riding gear results makes the difference between having a good riding ride or a great ride, between looking good or looking amazing and most importantly it makes the difference between being ok and being safe.

When it comes to road gear there are a few important things to consider including the type of riding, the terrain as well as the style of bike you have.

Here are a few guidelines that might help:

Sportbike riders - Aggressive riding is what you live for! A full-face helmet, road boots, kevlar/aramid pants, and jacket finished off with leather gloves to complete the look.

Naked bike riders - Comfort and style is your main focus. The addition of one of the Alpinestars hoodies, a camo kevlar jean, and motorcycle boots do not only look good but it will hold up in a crash.

Cruise bike riders - The look is everything! Keep it retro. Open face helmet complemented by some stealth pants will make it look like you are wearing casual clothing whilst providing more protection than a t-shirt.

Dual sport riders - Your mission is to embody moto, build a look that sticks the balance between adventure, enduro, and motocross. Motocross gear might look the part but the material won't hold up to a 100kmh slide. A Motocross helmet with a decent set of goggles, body armour, and a matching motocross boots will not only look cool but offer the protection you need for road riding and offroad riding alike. Knee braces are overkill but a hydration pack is an excellent addition.

Scooter rider - You want to be light and get every one of the 15hp of your 50cc. Aim for motorcycle gear that is light, breathable, and stylish. An open-face helmet with a kevlar flannel, subtle shirt, kevlar jeans, and leather boots are the way to go.
