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.

UNLESS YOUR 6'6'' AND 350 LBS ADULT SIZE WONT FIT. STRAPS ARE TO LONG. PIVOT SCREW AT KNEE WILL TEAR UP ANY GRAPHICS YOU HAVE ON THE TANK AFTER TEARING THRU YOUR PANTS. IF THEY FIT CORRECTLY I THINK THEY WOULD PROTECT YA BUT BEING SO BIG THERE IS TOO BIG A GAP BETWEEN YOUR KNEE AND THE GUARD. NOT A LOT OF FLEXIBILITY AT THE KNEE.Read All Reviews

I have tried Thor knee guards and EVS knee braces ($100 less than these) and neither had close the the quality of the Alpinestars knee braces. Very adjustable, very comfortable, and great protection. I've been riding with them for almost 6 months now and they've help up great!Read All Reviews

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
