Helmet

You need to keep your head protected all the while you are on the road. In most states, you are legally bound to wear a helmet and safeguard yourself all the while you are riding. Not wearing one will invite legal penalties and fines, failing to which you can be arrested. Look for helmets with:

  • Enough foam padding
  • Removable liner
  • Anti-odor technology
  • Retractable sun visor
  • Moisture-absorbing layers

Those with anti-bacterial technology and moisture-absorbing layers are able to reduce the amount of sweating within the helmet, as well as bad odor formation. Helmets with superior liners are able to prevent blurring or stinging sensations in eyes and also help prevent unpleasant smells as a result of sweating.

Goggles

When you ride at very high speeds or even at moderate speeds, you can have small foreign objects such as debris, dust etc. flying into your eyes. This can make you go off balance and get involved in a major accident. This can easily be prevented with a pair of goggles which protect your eyes from the sides and the front. There can mitigate risks of foreign particles getting into your eyes with such glasses to a great extent. Look for a superior pair, even if that means spending a few more dollars.

With gloves, there is no skin contact of your palm and fingers with the clutches and no risks of slippage.

These are stylish boots and most of these have advanced waterproof lining which keeps the feet comfy and dry while riding during monsoons.
