Types of Motorcycle Safety Clothing

When people ride motorcycles, they need to be safe. They need to have the right type of clothing that will protect them from potential hazards such as falling, being involved in collisions, and experiencing other types of injuries. There are several types of motorcycle safety clothing on the market available to anyone that needs it. Here is some information on some of the types.

Wearing leather is a type of motorcycle safety clothing a lot of riders choose. Some riders wear a one piece leather suit or a jacket paired with pants. Protective leather is different from the type commonly worn for fashion purposes because it is a lot tougher and much more flexible. It has been tested not to tear or experience cuts or abrasions as easily and provides resistance.

As for the leather jackets worn for protection, they typically are heavily padded in certain areas, such as the elbows, shoulders, and spine. For the pants, the areas where the hips and knees are located are thicker. The padding provided may be made out of a few different materials such as high density foam, hard polymers, and carbon fibers. The full body suits (one piece suit), may be reinforced with materials such as high density plastic or titanium.

Some have plastic caps where the toes and ankles are to provide further reinforcement and support.

A lot of places require that riders wear helmets to protect their heads. This is because the head and face are very vulnerable areas that can withstand a lot of damage if the rider is involved in a collision. Helmets have two layers; a hard layer and an energy absorbing layer. The hard layer is the hard shell and the energy absorbing layer is the liner.

There are three types of helmets. The open face type is one where there is no added protection for the face. The full face type is one where there is protection for the skull, face, and jaw. There is also a flip face type where people have the option to wear it as either the open face or full face types.
