How to Choose the Right Motorcycle Gear with Givi Malaysia

It does not make sense to spend time and money on something you may never need. Yet buying the best motorcycle gear you can afford can be the wisest investment you can make. To help you, here are some guidelines on how to look for the right motorcycle gear, such as jackets, pants, gloves, and boots.

Size

Try the motorcycle gear on. Gear should be snug without being too tight or impeding built-in ventilation. In the event of a slide down the road, it’s more likely to stay in place on your body and give you the greatest protection. Look for adjustable waists to fit different sizes and accommodate layers. Zip-in linings extend the utility and take you through three seasons. Find a bike with a riding position like yours, sit on it, and assume the riding position. Make sure the gear is not constricting your movement or binding at knees, hips, or shoulders. When it comes to your headgear or helmet, make sure it’s not too roomy or too tight. Otherwise, look for one that will properly fit your head such as those from Givi Malaysia.

Length

Gear is designed to protect you while riding. Having it show off your good looks is secondary. While standing, your jacket and pants will look too long. While in your riding position, you want sleeves to cover your wrists. Make sure the jacket back is long enough to overlap your pants. Likewise, pant legs should cover your ankles.

Armor

The best gear has quality impact protection, like CE-rated (a European standard) D30. Look for jackets with extra coverage at the elbows, shoulders, and back. Pants should be armoured at hips and knees. This protection will fall below the joint it’s protecting when you’re standing with arms at your side. Make sure it’s properly placed when in the riding position. Good gear will have adjustable pockets for armour at joints to allow for varying leg and arm lengths. You’ll want armour that can be removed when the garment is cleaned. Mid-shin height is best for boots, along with a reinforced shank and ankle protection. Motorcycle gear should also have waterproofing protection such as those from Givi Malaysia.

Construction

Make sure seams are double or triple stitched and have a smooth finish. They’ll be more durable and resistant to popping open during a slide. Seams you feel when trying pieces on will be uncomfortable and distracting during use. Choose a boot with ankle protection, a steel shank, shifter pad, and toe protection. Choose oil-resistant soles and make sure they’re stitched on, not just glued in place.

Closures

Manufacturers like Givi Malaysia use a variety of fasteners from zippers, laces, and Velcro, to snaps. Choose adjustable closures at wrists and neck. Although Velcro works anywhere else, stay away from it at your neck. It catches on helmet straps and degrades the material. Avoid laces on boots, unless they have an extra covering to prevent snagging. Velcro closures make boots easy to get on and off while providing a snug fit.
