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.

Those straps are wayyy too long. I even did what EveRide ADV does by cross strapping them in X’s, which helped a lot, but they still feel too loose. The riding boots help too by keeping the shin guards held up. I’m thinkijg about cutting off and inch of the strap and reattaching it to make use of the Velcro. I like them a lot and it’s a great price. Just a little modification required if you’re a skinny guy like me.Read All Reviews

Thanks to EveRide ADV’s videos, I wouldn’t of found RockyMountainATVMC.com, or atleast not as fast? The A.R.C. Knee Brace Sleeves I ordered to go under the A.R.C. knee/shin hard plastic guards are disappointing. I ordered the Small hoping they would be a tight fit so they wouldn’t slide down at the calf. They’re a tight fit like I wanted around the ankles, but around the calf area, they’re super loose and keep falling down even with the knee guards on. I have thick thighs too and I’m 5’10” 170lbs., so I’m curious who the heck is wearing the size X-Large...a 400lb motocross rider? Good thing the knee “brace” sleeves were only $11.99. I think I’ll just fold over the part that covers the thigh on top of the ARC hard plastic knee guards, I’m thinking that will suffice. I was just really hoping for a compression sleeve type fit and not, i don’t even know what to call the way they fit. Tight at ankles, floppy at thighs. Maybe some compression knee sleeves will work well under the knee guards. Was just really trying to wear as much A.R.C. Swag that I can.Read All Reviews

I recently bought a pair of the knee braces and at first I loved them they fit great and gave great protection but the actual patella guard that is removable is very suspectable to being broken in the event of a crash because it is only held on my two little pieces of plastic. I wasn't riding for more than 10 minutes and I had a minor tip over and landed on my knee and when I got back to m truck i realized that it had broken but I sent it back and I was sent a new patella gaurd and haven't had an issue since.Read All Reviews
