    Troy Lee BG 5955 Roost Deflector

    Ben in AZ

    Nice vest and comfortable over or under jersey

    Great comfort, doesn’t restrict movement. I wear this under my jersey for enduros and hare scrambles and it comfortable. I used to use the jacket type protector and this is way more comfortable and lighter. I’m 6’2” and I thought it was a little small but after adjusting and using it it is good.

    Nikwax Tech Wash

    This seems to be the "go to" product for washing textile and mesh clothing. Since I really noticed the dirt and grime that have accumulated on my gear I knew it was time to clean/wash them properly yet leave what waterproofing still existed. Works as advertised even in common top loading machine. I do pretreat the really dirty spots just to give the product a fighting chance.

  • Arai XD4 Motorcycle Helmet

    Arai XD4 Motorcycle Helmet

    Todd in CO

    Arai XD4

    Sizing chart was good - had to remove 5mm cheek pads until helmet packs out a bit which is a nice feature (tightening up fit at later date). Love the face shield flexibility in that you can crack it in cold weather (stay warm yet not fog), ride wide open with sun glasses on and be able to drop the shield quickly when landscape holds flying insects. Just overall highly acclaimed and tested helmet so worthy of cost. All my friends take note of it and say it's one they'd like to have

Dual Sport Riding Gear

When you own a dual sport bike, the first thing you need to do when looking for riding gear is evaluate your dirt/street ratio. If you see plenty of dirt riding and road travel, you might be surprised at how well-suited adventure touring or dual sport riding gear is.

The number one priority of all gear is safety. Street gear is designed for abrasion protection when hitting the pavement at high speeds. Off-road gear is designed for impact protection when taking a spill or from rough terrain. Dual sport gear often incorporates both abrasion and impact protection to protect you in either environment.

Another thing to consider is comfort and convenience. Street gear often incorporates ventilation features that work well at high speeds. A lot of off-road gear focuses more on breathability or the ability to wick away moisture. There are numerous style-specific features that you might not even think about, but they make a big difference in the comfort of your ride, and adventure motorcycle gear often utilizes the best of both styles of riding.

At Rocky Mountain ATV/MC, we love adventure riding. That’s why we know dual sport and adventure gear. We carry many of the top brands and have a wide selection that appeals to a variety of riding preferences. So wherever you lie on the dirt/street spectrum, you’ll find the perfect set of gear for you.

We’ve arranged gear into four major categories to assist you as you browse:

  • Men’s Riding Gear – This is where you’ll find the riding gear essentials. It’s considered the men’s category, but there’s plenty in here that works just fine for women as well.
  • Women’s Riding Gear – There is some overlap between the men’s and women’s categories, but this is where you’ll find gear that better matches feminine tastes in fit, style or color.
  • Cold Weather Riding Gear – If you plan on riding when temperatures get chilly, this is the category for you. You’ll find a selection of gear that is designed for cold weather riding. This is the perfect category if you’re planning an adventure ride through cold territory or during a colder time of year.
  • Rider Accessories – This is where you’ll find other types of gear and accessories, including bags, packs, camping supplies, cleaners, GPS systems, riding cameras and a lot more.

If you order something that doesn’t fit quite right, the first exchange is 100% free (even shipping)! When you purchase from Rocky Mountain ATV/MC, you can order with confidence. If you need ideas of what to pick up (or upgrade), check out our suggestions below.


First things first; there are a few essential items that should be considered must-haves before you swing a leg over your bike. First and foremost, of course, is your helmet. Dual sport helmets have come a long way in their features and design. Many of them use face shields and vents like street helmets along with elongated chin bars and peaked visors like off-road helmets. If you want a single helmet that will serve you well regardless of where your adventure takes you, don’t count out a dual sport helmet.

Next on the list are adventure motorcycle jackets and pants. Don’t skip them; remember that your jacket and pants are what will protect much of your body in a crash. We’ve got options that work great for a variety of temperatures. Read the product descriptions for important details related to ventilation and breathability. Not all products are created equal, and some of the premium options are incredible for keeping you cool in hot and humid weather without sacrificing protection. (Don’t forget our sections for women’s jackets and pants if you’re looking for something for a more feminine figure.) If you plan on doing cold weather riding, you might want to specifically look at options for outer, middle and base layers. Proper layering is key to staying warm while riding in cold environments.

ADV/dual sport boots matter. Adventure riding often incorporates more rigorous circumstances than street riding would ever require. It’s important to wear boots that provide adequate support. Dual sport boots provide more ankle support than a street boot but more flexibility than a motocross boot. There are also quite a few options that are waterproof, which is a nice feature for adventure boots in particular.

Finally, don’t forget gloves. With a set of gloves, your essentials are complete. Gloves keep your hands warm and comfortable, and they also provide protection if you crash.

Additional Gear

Once you’ve got the essentials, there are a few additional gear items worth considering, especially if you plan on riding in colder weather. You can keep yourself warm with a facemask or pair of socks. If it’s going to be really cold, heated riding gear is definitely the way to go. It is so effective at keeping you warm that you might look forward to chilly days.

One other thing you might want to consider is a riding vest. There are a variety of reasons to wear a vest on a bike: extra warmth, protection or storage.

Gear Care

Good dual sport riding gear is an investment in your personal safety and riding comfort. Make sure to take care of it. We carry several great products that are designed to clean and maintain gear and helmets. We also have helmet accessories if you need to replace a face shield. If you own heated riding gear, we have plugs, extension cords, splitter cables and adapters.

Other Items

If you’re looking for true adventure, you’ll need some high quality bike luggage and camping gear. There are a lot of great options, and many of them have been designed specifically with dual sport riders in mind.

There are also a few gadgets you might want to take along on your bike. Communication devices allow you to stay in touch with other riders in your party. GPS systems allow you to stay on the right path (whether it’s a highway or a dirt road through the forest). Riding cameras allow you to capture the action of your entire adventure.
