Safety First Can Save On You!
Another well-known fact motorcycle personal protective equipment
are acknowledged to be a protective clothing
, in fact many countries mandate the wearing of protective gear for the safety of the motorcyclists or motor riders. Motorcyclists are at high risk in road riding, racing and traffic crashes.
Protective clothing may include certain types of jackets, gloves, boots, pants/jeans, racing suits
and other clothing & textile
. Jackets meant for motorcyclists are typically made of leather or specialized man-made fabrics like Cordura
. These jackets typically include heavy padding on the elbow, spine, and shoulder regions. Gloves are generally made of leather or Kevlar and some include carbon fiber knuckle protection. Boots, especially those for sport riding, include reinforcement and plastic caps on the ankle and toe areas. Pants are usually leather, cordura, or Kevlar. Except for helmets, none of these items are required by law in any state in the USA, or in any part of the UK but are recommended by many of those who ride.
" riders wear a range of plastic armour to protect against injury from falling off, hitting other riders and bikes, debris kicked up from the rear wheel of leading bikes, and from running into track barriers protecting the public. This armour protects the extremities from bone breakage
and the back and chest from strain and broken bones
. Although fairly efficient, it is of course not always completely effective. Many riders wear "roost protectors" designed specifically to protect against painful debris from other bikes, but are of no use in a fall or collision.
The statistics review concluded that protective clothing including helmets reduce the risk of body and head injury by around 69% and death by around 42%.
