Motorcycle Riding Gear, What really they are?

by Andrew Lynn Marketing Manager
In motorcycling, riders wear specialized clothing, safety gear, and miscellaneous equipment. This Equipment that accommodates rider with safety and good looks while riding is known as motorcycle riding gear.
Typically, motorcycle riding gear serves more than one purpose, including crash and weather protection, increased visibility, style or identification, stowing cargo, and accommodating communications devices.
Crash protection : 
For crash protection, helmets are often the first piece of gear a rider chooses, and in many jurisdictions, the only one required by law. Beyond that, crash protection comes in the form of motorcycle jackets, armored jeans/pants, boots and gloves covering a rider’s entire body.
Weather :
Most protective garments double as protection from the wind blast while riding, and from every kind of weather, keeping the rider warm, cool, and dry, either with passive insulation and ventilation, or active heating or cooling devices. Some motorcycle armor is minimalist in design, serving only to protect from crash impacts and abrasion, and so is intended to be combined with other clothing.
Appearance :
Motorcycling gear is also designed with appearance in mind, often to make drivers more likely to see the rider, increasing conspicuity, by combining elements of high-visibility clothing with the weather and crash protection functions of rider clothing, helmets, and other items. Selling these items to riders, comprising at least $1.15 billion (clothing) plus $1.2 billion (accessories including helmets and other equipment) of the $21.5 billion (2004) US motorcycle industry, depends on both practical and aesthetic appeal. Fashion and style drive these sales as much as a utility, and an entirely separate category of motorcycle-inspired fashion exists in addition to the motorcycle-specific clothing industry, of motorcycle-inspired jackets and other items sold in general retail outlets, intended for non-riders. Helmets, jackets, and other clothing may also display designs, text, and images to identify the rider or his groups, such as club insignia, police, fire, and other utility riders, or as adverting space for the logos of motorcycle sports sponsors.
