A lot of our female readers have asked for a roundup of the finest bike gear for girls. So here it’s, written by one of our favourite motojournalists, the Motolady.
Despite the development of the girls’s population within the bike business, the overall consensus is the fact that there isn’t enough women’s equipment. And, yes, there are fewer choices for women who ride than their male counterparts.
But we must not forget the many good looking and protective equipment choices we do have. Not all of them may be covered here, but it is a great taste of the safe and hot supplies out there.
Helmets There are a lot of different helmet choices out there. With streamlined, appealing full face helmets accessible, there is not any reason to let bugs fly into your face at 60mph.
The Icon Airmada solid colour helmets are lightweight, priced nicely ($180-$190), have exceptional venting, and come in four different shell sizes. This means your little helmet is not only a big helmet with more padding interior. Smaller helmet, less weight, less wind resistance, etc.
Another option is the Bell Bullitt: comparatively brand new, and gaining popularity in the rate of a salt flat racer. For about $400 you can get a sleek, retro looking helmet with modern security. Take a look at the retro blue and Roland Sands Layouts Viva versions also.
Riding Trousers Most frequently failed, and among the closest things to the earth… your legs! It’s likely to get flattering trousers with appropriate armour. Lately, protective denim (most commonly with Kevlar liner) had become increasingly popular.
UglyBROS Jeans recently expanded their operation with a Los Angeles based headquarters. The UglyBROS usa jeans run between $263 and $347, and are offered in routine denim with armour inserts, or Kevlar reinforced.
Their layouts are reminiscent of race suits from back in the day, typically including diamond-quilt patterns or ribbed accent panels. Their jeans include contoured CE hip and knee armour–the knee armour is readily taken out of the outside the pant for fast relaxation. With strong but somewhat flexible denim fabric, you get a great fit on and off the bike.
Dainese has come together with the riding jeans they offer: they now possess the affordable Kateville Jeans for around $190 that offer both Kevlar jersey augmented inserts along the stretch denim, plus knee armour pockets for Dainese Pro-Shape CE-rated knee armour (sold individually).
