We all know how important it is to stay safe while riding, but are you actively taking steps to ensure that safety? Sure you love the freedom riding gives you (don’t we all), but protecting yourself with the right gear is crucial while on the road. We’ve got an awesome list of safety gear you should consider adding to your line up. Check out a few of our top picks below.
Arai Corsair X Helmet – Protecting your head is vital in the event of a collision making helmets essential. Corsair has taken protection to the next level with their Arai Corsair X Helmet. The helmet not only guards against direct impact, but it also redirects impact energy rather than absorbing it at one location. The helmet shell is constructed with Super Fiber specifically designed to create strong bonds with less weight.
Alpinestars BNS Tech Carbon Neck Support – A helmet can only do so much in a crash – that’s where a neck protector comes in. The Alpinestars BNS distributes the force of impact from your neck onto the neck support device, then the device pushes the impact to other parts of the body – saving your neck. You don’t have to worry about weight since the device comes in at just a pound and a half. It’s also super simple to put on. The device opens in the front and hinges at the rear so you can easily place it around your neck.
REV’IT! Seesoft RV Back Protector – A back protector should definitely be included in your safety gear line up and the Seesoft back protector by REV’IT is flexible and contours the spine for optimum protection. It is also fully ventilated and the CE-Level 2 back protector insert is designed to absorb impact while still being comfortable. The insert disperses impact over a larger surface area minimizing direct impact on the spine.
