Riding an ATV can be an extreme experience. The adrenaline that runs through your body as you navigate your course, riding through the wind, and feeling free. Prior to starting up your ATV for a ride, you want to ensure that you have dressed in proper ATV riding safety gear, protecting you if an accident were to take place. Here are some very crucial elements of ATV riding gear designed with your safety and comfort in mind.
A helmet is one of the most obvious pieces of protective riding gear, not only for ATV riders but for those who ride motorcycles or dirt bikes as well. Well known riding helmets such as Fox Racing helmets, Thor helmets, or Fly Racing helmets are designed with your utmost protection and comfort in mind.
The importance of wearing a helmet is not just to protect you in the event of a fall, although that is a very important aspect. Helmets from MotoXtremes also protect your head from flying debris such as rocks or dirt, as well as protecting your nose, mouth, ears or eyes from foreign objects. Some helmets are designed to protect your entire face as well as your head, while others may require you to wear protective goggles to obtain maximum protection of your face and eyes.
One of the main purposes of ATV protective riding boots is to provide you with a better support and grip, offering more control during riding or racing. You may notice when you ride that your legs are fairly close to the motor. Riding boots protect your legs from the extreme temperatures of your ATV’s motor. If you were to crash or get into an accident, your protective riding boots would also help absorb shock from the impact.
Depending on they types of riding trails you frequent, may determine what they best type of boot is right for you. Some boots are designed with thermal protection in the event of extreme cold. Some performance boots are designed to reflect any water, ensuring that your feet stay dry. Be sure to take your riding destinations into consideration when selecting the perfect pair of riding boots for yourself. There is full selection of protective boots for women and men.
Often times when riding or racing, we hit high speed levels, rough terrain, or other unexpected elements that can cause accidents, or even being thrown from your ATV or bike. Ensuring that you have the proper protective gear on can potentially save your life. There are many elements of protective gear such as:
Riding gloves are also a very important riding gear accessory. Not only do they protect your hands in the event of a fall, but while riding, they protect your skin from blistering providing comfort to your hands. There are a variety of gloves for you to choose from. Each type of gloves offers different features such as ventilation, grip, or material. Finding the perfect glove will enhance your riding experience.
One of the biggest mistakes that amateur riders make is riding in shorts and t-shirts. At any point something could go wrong, and not properly protecting your skin can cause severe damage such as burns, cuts, road rash, or other severe injury. Riding pants or jerseys are designed to protect your skin, while maintaining a comfortable temperature for your body. The ventilation in the jersey material offers for great airflow and moisture resistance.
