Extend the motorcycle riding season with California Heats heated riding gear—plug in, stay warm, and continue the ride.
Racer Gloves is one of the few companies making womens specific glove styles cut to fit the smaller hand of women riders. Weve featured the companys styles before on WRN. Just released are two new styles, one womens specific for riders who want hard core protection; and a unisex style thats lightweight and designed for adventure riding.
Held USA is now offering a wide range of womens motorcycling gear including jackets, pants, gloves, boots, and armored casual wear. The expanded womens collection, that we at Women Riders Now are so excited about, includes textile, leather, and denim pieces, offering motorcycle clothing choices for every type of riding and sense of style.
Two pieces of riding gear garner the most opinions from riders: helmets and gloves. I either see a rider not wearing any protective gear including no gloves, or a rider wearing every piece of protective gear, but still no gloves. Why is this? I decided to ask the one guy I know who eats, breathes and sleeps gloves, Lee Block, owner of Racer Gloves USA, the US importer of this leading Austrian glove brand.
Touring across the continent through all kinds of weather and stretching the season to the extremes, I ask a lot from my riding gloves. As with all of my motorcycle riding gear choices, my goal is to get the most function from the fewest pieces. The ProSummer and ProWinter gloves from BMW meet my high standards.
We’ve become big fans of Racer Gloves these days because the company is committed to making quality gloves that all riders can wear—plus, there are specific sizes for women. Racer’s Queen glove is made from soft and pliable goatskin leather with a waterproof Polymax brand membrane. The company even offers a five-year warranty on its waterproofing
Gone are the days when women riders had to forgo safety and protection for their motorcycling gear in favor of simply looking good. While most motorcycle apparel companies now offer a selection of functional and fashionable riding gear patterned for women’s bodies, there are limited choices for gals who want an fashionable look while riding their motorcycle.
