No rider plans to be in accident, but it happens, even to the safest of riders. When these accidents happen, the gear worn matters and can make a big difference. Good quality riding gear minimizes the risk of severe injuries and can save a rider’s life. Investing in proper riding gear is essential – but must women sacrifice function for fashion?
As a motorcycle rider who enjoys spending time on her bike, and as an injury law paralegal working as part of the League and Williams team, it is my pleasure to make the case that safety should never be foregone for style, and that today’s riding gear manufacturers are up to speed on women riders’ need for fashion. Simply put, there are no excuses to be improperly outfitted before hitting the road on your bike – women can look great while ensuring that safety is not sacrificed.
Many riders may not be aware of the minimum standards that their riding gear should meet. At a minimum women’s riding gear should include:
Finding a suitable riding jacket that meets safety standards, looks great, and fits a rider’s budget can be a challenge. Having recently completed this challenge myself, I am happy to provide the following suggestions. After all, after a rider’s helmet, a suitable riding jacket is a key investment that will be worn for years to come. Thankfully, the industry has recognized women riders’ need for function, form and price. There are some great options out there that offer great protection, will turn heads on and off the bike and won’t break the bank. My four top picks include:
If you are looking for a stylish helmet too, my favourite is the Gringo S line by Biltwell.
Many riders could benefit by also equipping themselves with a high-definition helmet camera. Riders may enter to win a high definition helmet cam from League and Williams lawyers, by going to our Facebook page and commenting “League and Williams has your back” on the Hindsight: 1080p post – draw happens on July 12, 2017.
Even with the appropriate gear, when accidents happen, even to the safest of riders, injuries can be significant.
