Motorcycle racing can be a lot of fun, but you need to be sure that you take the time to dress appropriately for the races to ensure that you are always as safe as you can be. There are many people who do not realize that there are specific pieces of attire available that they should wear when they are racing to keep themselves safe during a race. The guide below walks you through the essential pieces of attire you need to wear when racing.
One of the most important pieces of safety attire you need to wear during a motorcycle race is a helmet. Helmet come in a variety of sizes and styles. If you are racing, you may want to consider investing in a helmet that has a face shield built into it so that no debris can fly into your face and hurt you during a race.
A Racing Jacket
A great racing jacket can provide ample protection to many different areas of your body, if it is well made. Jackets made from leather are ideal because the leather can protect you from possible road rash. Elbow pads made from Kevlar and a spine guard made from Kevlar are also ideal in a racing jacket because they provide ample protection if you were to wreck during a race. There are also some jackets that are built with breathable channels in them to ensure that you do not overheat and can feel air flowing through the jacket while you ride to keep you cool and comfortable at all times.
Protective gloves are also important when you race to ensure your knuckles and palms are protected if you wreck. Look for protective gloves that have Kevlar built over the outer edges of the knuckles, as well as over the edge of the inner palm to ensure that your hands are not torn up if you slide across the ground during a wreck.
Finally, racing boots are a must during a motorcycle race. The racing boots have steel or Kevlar built along the sides of them to keep your ankles protected during the ride. Steel toes also protect your toes to ensure that they are not pinched or stumped as you are riding.
Dressing properly for a race is important if you want to be as safe as possible when racing. The attire is designed to be well made to ensure that they can survive a lot of wear and tear and years of use.Share
