First Gear Set for a Beginner Motorcyclist
- on November 26, 2019
Buying a motorcycle without buying an appropriate riding gear is a dangerous deal to eye upon. Motorcyclists have often been abused of being rash and rude on the roads and thus it is important to keep one safe and protected. Our gear list is a comfortable, good-protection getup for a beginner motorcyclist. These gears will provide safety against impact, abrasion and the elements so you can ride non-stop.
A must have and most important gear for a motorcyclist. Adhering to international safety standards, the helmets must be ECE R-22.05 and DOT certified and the aerodynamically designed range of MT Helmets (starting from Rs.5250) is a good deal to grab for first time riders. Our guide to buy a right size helmet will help you pick the best fit. With helmets a common condition observed is that after 5 years of manufacturing, the adhesives that hold it together begin to break down. It is recommended to get a new one, even if you haven’t crashed it. Also, whether you are wearing an open face or a full-face helmet, the wind noise can be highly disturbing. Constant exposure to such wind pressure can cause permanent hearing loss, thus one can pick Alpine Plug & Go (Rs. 800). They are compact and easily fit into the ear socket.
A good textile jacket should provide a combination of comfort and protection. Motorcycling jacket comes with protection armors that offer safety from abrasion and impact. Scimitar Razor 2L2 Jacket (Rs.5999) is an ideal all season jacket that comes with a detachable rain liner and thermal liner as well. Abrasion resistant mesh fabric offer maximum ventilation and great protection.
Our brain is programmed to put our hands out first in case of any fall. A fall at speed can cause abrasion and much more damage to the hand. Scimitar Drag Gloves (Rs. 2400) come with knuckle protection and are made from perforated leather that keeps your hand ventilated. And if you are looking for a choice then Bikeratti Matador Gloves (Rs.3200) offer ample protection, comfort and perfect looks.
A good knee guard offers basic knee and shin protection. The Aspida Perseus (Rs.2725) can be worn under the pants/denim that you plan to ride in. The armor sheath is made of breathable and wicking fabric to offer comfort all day. A cool product to complete your first set of protective gear.
Ideally people do not wish to spend money on buying a special pair of boots just at the beginning of their riding odyssey, however we recommend you to buy a pair of motorcycling boots to save yourself from getting hurt at the crucial joints in case of a fall. Ryo Onex Sports Boots (Rs.8250) are reinforced with double stitching for prolonged product life. With TPU shin and ankle & heel protectors they are capable of absorbing heavy impacts during a mishap.
