Riding a motorcycle is inherently dangerous because you are personally exposed in the event of an accident. That’s why it’s important to get the right gear for the occasion. Armor and protective gear can keep you safe in an unfortunate incident.
We’ve carefully selected a number of great choices for motorcycle armor and related gear. While you should always choose to wear standard protective equipment such as a helmet along with a jacket and riding pants (or even a complete race suit) that include extra protection, it’s often a good idea to augment your existing setup with specific armor. What exactly are we talking about? Just take a look at the types of gear we have on this page:
Aside from motorcycle armor, we also have a number of braces. While they may not provide as much impact protection, they can add extra support to joints such as knees, elbows, ankles, wrists, etc. In a collision, braces may keep your joints from overextending or improperly bending.
Play it safe when you’re on your motorcycle. Pick up some of the protective gear and armor you see here. Hopefully you’ll never need it. But if you do, you’ll be very glad you have it.

Title says it all. Works as well as a number of prescription braces we've had but the cost is significantly less. Use on those days when feeling slight instability from harder workouts or rides the day before. I'd buy again once this one is too streched out to fit.Read All Reviews

I'm a big guy. 235, and 5'11" and I don't have small legs by any means... I can almost wrap the straps around my leg twice as they are way too long. I wear KLIM pants, so fitting these in the pants wasn't an issue. It was tough to get my boots on over the shin part. The knee section is so large it makes it difficult, and tiring, to use your legs and knees to hold onto the bike. I wore these for one ride. and after 2.5 hours to go 25 miles, my legs were shaking because of the extra work these guards caused. If you are under 250 pounds, don't bother with these guards.Read All Reviews

I have had a pair for about 5-6 years and they are just now wearing out, and I ride and race a lot., always wearing these with my knee braces. No issues with them going down as I have always put my compressions shorts over the top of them, and my socks over the bottoms of them. Never noticed them making me any hotter on summer rides. I just noticed they are wearing thin in one area after all the rides and abuse of the years. Would buy again.Read All Reviews
