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.

My favorite sock,high coverage for knee braces/guards with nice ventilation upper panels .If you are looking for a thick heavy sock these are not going to please you,Nice in hot weather ,bottom section of sock from ankle down is a classic moto style sock.elastic band top to wrap over the top of knee brace holds well.I get a whole season of riding from these socks,so the build quality is very good.Read All Reviews

I purchased the large/XL size. for reference i am 5'9", 182lbs and an athlete. this size fits perfect. the material is warm, but very durable and stretchy. the pads are perfect for my monkey arms. i did replace the back pad with a spare one from a klim road jacket i had to slim it down a bit. yes, that meant taking the back protector from level 2 to level 1 but the fit with my hydration pack is far better now. all the protection armor can be removed easily from the suit for washing. all in all, this has far exceeded my expectations. and as another reviewer mentioned, you can wear your normal sized jersey, and you don't look like a galactic fighter doing so.Read All Reviews
