Your helmet should fit snugly and fasten securely.
Your helmet is the most important piece of protective gear for safe riding. A helmet can help prevent a serious head injury.
Full-face helmets help protect your face as well as your head. Open-face helmets are lighter and may be cooler, but should be used with mouth protection. Eye protection should be used with both types of helmets.
Good gloves can help keep your hands from getting sore, tired, or cold.
The recommended protective footwear is a pair of strong, over-the-ankle boots with low heels to help prevent your feet from slipping off the footrests.
Off-road style boots offer the best protection for feet, ankles, and lower legs.
It is important to protect your skin from the sun and from scratches. A long-sleeved shirt or jersey and long pants are minimum requirements for rider protection.
Off-road riding gear such as off- highway pants with kneepads, jersey, and chest/ shoulder protectors provides better protection. You can look stylish and ready for action, and still be well protected.
