Personal protective equipments

July 27, 2009

Fashion garments,caps,Hats,gloves & western clothing concerns many aspects of vehicle and equipment design as well as operator skill and training that are unique to motorcycle riding.

To address the risks of motorcycling, before and after a fall, motorcyclists use personal protective equipment (PPE, or more commonly “motorcycle gear”). Many developed countries now require certain articles of PPE, and manufacturers and governments recommend its extensive use


Personal protective equipment (PPE) refers to protective clothing, helmets, goggles, or other garment designed to protect the wearer’s body or clothing from injury by blunt impacts, electrical hazards, heat, chemicals, and infection, for job-related occupational safety and health purposes, and in sports, martial arts, combat, etc. body armor is combat-specialized protective gear. In British legislation the term PPE does not cover items such as armour.

PPE can also be used to protect the working environment from pesticide application, pollution or infection from the worker (for example in a microchip factory). The protection may be important in both ways, as with the use of disposable gloves by surgeons and dentists.

The terms “protective gear” and “protective clothing” are in many cases interchangeable; “protective clothing” is applied to traditional categories of clothing, and “gear” is a more general term and preferably means uniquely protective categories, such as pads, guards, shields, masks, etc.

Common protective materials include Nomex and Kevlar.


Functions of personal protective equipment

  • Improved Visibility — Although for decades the popular image of the motorcycle rider has been of someone clad head-to-toe in black leather, in the light of the Hurt Report findings, and the day-to-day experiences of motorcyclists themselves, many riders choose higher-visibility gear. Bright colors and retro reflective strips are common on quality equipment.
  • Abrasion Resistance — Thick, tough leather provides the most abrasion resistance in a crash, but fabrics such as Cordura, Kevlar and ballistic nylon provide significant protection too. In addition, fabrics are generally cheaper, easier to maintain, waterproof, and more comfortable in hot weather. Thick leather, which affords the most abrasion resistance, can be uncomfortable in temperatures exceeding 85 °F (29 °C) and above 100 °F (38 °C) may cause heat stress & loss of control with insufficient fluid replacement. Some PPE may be constructed of fabrics made into a ‘mesh’ that provides cooling and a stable surface for the attachment of padding.
  • Padding — Quality jackets and pants provide significant extra padding in the vulnerable joint regions described above. This can take the form of simple foam padding, or dual-density foam that stiffens when compressed, sometimes with plastic or carbon fiber outer-shells that distribute the impact across the pad. Integrated pieces can be found in some jackets.
  • Weather Protection — One important aspect of PPE not mentioned above is protection from the elements. Extreme weather can make a long ride unbearable or dangerous. PPE provides protection from wind, rain and cold.

The best motorcycle clothing

July 27, 2009


Driving in your neighborhood on your bike could be highly dangerous. Approximately 90% of urban motorcycle accidents are caused the other driver not by the motorcyclist. Riding with your headlights on is very important to being seen. Bright colors or reflective stripes can help a lot.

For those of us who are into styling, there are some great looking motorcycle clothing on the market these days. However, not all of the motorcycle clothing offers as much protection as you think. Protective motorcycle clothing are not created equal. In Europe, they have a standard for motorcycle clothing. For it be lawfully sold as “safety” clothing, it has to pass a series of European standards and bear the CE mark, which are pretty lengthy. How does the clothing performance hold up in abrasion, tearing and impact tests. Once they pass the test, then the manufacturer are allowed to sell the motorcycle protective clothing with the CE mark. Unfortunately, USA has no such regulation is available in the USA. Cheer up, all is not lost. Just requires you to pay attention to what you are buying.

Research suggests that majority of bike accident deaths could have been avoided if the rider had worn protective gears like the helmet or the motorcycle jacket. Motorcycle jackets or motocross jerseys help to minimize the severity of injuries thus emphasizing their utilities.

Motorcycle jackets can be effective safeguards against serious injuries. These jackets are lined with foam and padding in the high impact areas like shoulders, and elbows. Being the only obstacle between the ground and the body (in case the vehicle crashes), these jackets offer adequate protection against severe injury and abrasion.

Not many people realize that most motorcycle injuries occur below the belt. You love your legs and feet but when you are riding a motorcycle, the are extremely vulnerable to injuries. Make sure you wear a decent pair of high boots and protective pants. Leather, thick leather is a good choice. Check the pants for reinforcement at the knees and hips. The better safety pants should attach to your jacket by a zipper. Boots should be thick leather, with a sole that can flex with the foot but has a resistance to crushing across the foot. Heard of steel toe shoes? Well not a bad ideal for when you are riding.

The history of material normally used for motorcycle protective clothing has been leather. The thick nylon and other synthetic materials will work well too. Look into Kevlar reinforced jeans which hold up much better than normal jeans while skidding across asphalt at 70 m.p.h. Here is an interesting fact. According to the European standard abrasion test, normal jeans last 0.6 seconds, while protective motorcycle pants will last 5 seconds or more. Think about 5 seconds of protection versus about 0.5 seconds. If you have to think very hard, you have been riding your motorcycle without a helmet again. Go with the Kevlar protected, re-enforced jeans.


Want to keep those fingers looking good and attached? You must have a decent pair of gloves. When you fall, you instinctively put out your hands palm side down to stop yourself in a slide, so the palms of your gloves should made of thick leather or knitted Kevlar and reinforced with patches. Knitted Kevlar is especially good for this kind of abrasion resistance, but reinforced leather works well too.

That old saying it only hurt when I stop. Well, apply that saying to when you hit the pavement. Impact protection can be bought separately like back protectors. If you buy it, make sure you wear it. Depending on your personality, it might be best motorcycle protective clothing with a degree of impact protection included so that you know when you put on your jacket and pants, the protection is there and you don’t have to remember to put it on.

Ladies do need leather chaps

July 27, 2009


Leather leggings joined by a belt or lacing, often having flared outer flaps, and worn over the trousers (as by western ranch hands). Leather chaps were worn in the old west by cowboys riding their horses.  Cowboys & cowgirls wore them over their pants to protect themselves and keep warm.  The wearing of leather chaps was later adapted to the “iron horse”.  Motorcycle riders wear leather chaps to keep themselves warm and to protect them from road rash in the event of a crash or fall.  In modern times, leather chaps have become not just rider protection but they are also a fashion statement!  Men, women, and kids all have a wide variety of leather chaps available to choose from!

Chaps are sturdy coverings for the legs consisting of leggings and a belt. They are buckled on over trousers with the chaps’ integrated belt, but unlike trousers they have no seat and are not joined at the crotch. They are designed to provide protection for the legs and are usually made of leather or a leather-like material. They are most commonly associated with the cowboy culture of the American west as a protective garment to be used when riding a horse through brushy terrain. In the modern world, they are worn for both practical work purposes and for exhibition or show use.

Chaps can be found in a variety of styles with many different details such as leather chaps. Full length chaps are attached at the waist with the seat missing to allow contact with the saddle and the rider’s legs are fully covered with the seam on the outside of the leg for comfort. These are not commonly worn in English riding although they can provide a great source of warmth and comfort. Half chaps, as the name suggests, are worn on the lower legs. They too can be made from a variety of materials, and are worn for additional comfort when riding. Usually chaps are fitted with a zip or Velcro down the outside of the leg with a strap under the foot to fasten them into place. When worn with Jodhpur boots they help to limit chafing between the saddle and the lower leg and prevent Jodhpur boots from rising up.

Body armor is best protection for motorcycling

July 27, 2009


Body armors are protective shields that stop the projectiles from penetrating into the body. Present day armors are generally called as bulletproof vests. Moreover, the advancement in the ammunition technology has lead to the development of different types of body shields. Police personnel, army men and private security guards mainly use these bulletproof vests.

The design of body armor and the material used in them varies. Kevlar fiber is the most effectual material used to make body shields or armors in recent days. The unique characteristic of the Kevlar is that it is lightweight. However, it is stronger than the hardest steel available.

The Kevlar fibers are twisted and interwoven individually covered by other materials such as resin as well as plastic. Kevlar material is capable of absorbing huge energy.

Types of Body Armors:

1.   Soft bullet proof vest: Police personnel and private security guards use this type of vest very commonly. They are made of woven fibers and soft clothing, which are interwoven together into net.  Soft bullet proof vests protect the users from ordinary weapons and reduce the impact of bullet by dispersing its energy. These bullet proof vests are incapable to protect from high caliber ammunition.

2.   Interceptor vests: Interceptor bulletproof vests are made of Kevlar vest and other small protective plates. They weigh around 16.4 lbs. These plates are removable and serve as protection to throat, groin, front and back. These types of vests are capable of stopping 7.62 mm of bullets from penetrating into the body.

3.   Personnel Kevlar vest: This type of physical armor or vest is made of thick Kevlar filler. Personnel Kevlar vest has different sections to offer better fit. This type of Kevlar vest has swivel shaped shoulder pads, two frontal pockets, a  ¾th collar, two hangers to hold grenade and butt patches at the shoulder area to carry a rifle.


4.      Dragon skin armor: Dragon skin armor is made of small spherical discs. The discs used are of silicon carbide ceramic, which are overlapped one over the other same as that of fish scales. The peculiar arrangement of this armor offers higher flexibility and protects the body from the multiple hits.

FAP-GL-014-SA fitted covering for hand with a separate sheath for each finger and thumb which provides protection and perfect grip for the rider is called motorcycling gloves. They may have gauntlets to protect the rider’s wrists from injury, and help shrink drafts while riding in colder climates.

Motorcycling gloves – commonly made of leather, Cordura, or Kevlar, or some combination. Some include carbon fiber knuckle protection or other forms of stiff padding. Gloves designed specifically for motorcycle use have slightly curved fingers and the seams are on the outer surfaces to allow the motorcyclist to maintain his grip and control on the handlebars and clutch/brake levers. Some gloves also provide protection to the wrist.

Motorcycle Gloves can protect your hands. In fact, gloves are known to protect the hands of the wearer from abrasions and cuts and also offer protection and comfort from cold.

Gloves help to protect the wearer not only from cold and heat but also help to protect the hands against any damage due to fiction or abrasions and falls while riding a motorcycle. 

Almost all motorcycle gloves are made from the finest leather as it is leather which is not only durable but also provides the maximum comfort and warmth during the winter months. Motorcycle gloves are helpful in mot only warding off any kind of road rashes like accidents but are considered more as a safety accessory when riding motorcycle. 

Motorcycle gloves come in different varieties and are widely available in the sports shops and even on the internet. They are Full finger gloves, Perforated gloves and Road Racing/Track gloves.

Full finger gloves

Full finger gloves offer additional protection and are a favorite with the sport bike riders. The wide array of full finger gloves offers not just functional value but also caters to demanding style aspirations of motor bike riders

 Perforated Gloves

These are perhaps best suited for riding in warm weather conditions, particularly for those living in areas where the winter is short and most part of the year is warm. These gloves are ideal even for casual use on occasions other than riding your bike. While the perforated Gloves are stylish they won’t appear too flashy either. 

Road Racing/Track Gloves

FAP-GL-013-SThis variant is undoubtedly the ultimate in motorcycle gloves. Apart from amazing style, they are crafted to afford maximum protection particularly in the event of an unfortunate spill. The knuckle protection and reinforced palm are particularly relevant. The seams are generally reinforced well to make sure that the gloves stay in their place in a single piece even under extreme duress.

Motorcycling gloves are typically gloves made of leather. They may have gauntlets to protect the rider’s wrists from injury, and help reduce drafts while riding in colder climates. Motorcycling gloves typically have reinforced palms intended to protect the rider from abrasion injuries in case of an accident.

Optional features include additional protection or weatherproofing. For touring gloves, such additional features may include advanced insulating materials and waterproof/breathable fabric, although touring gloves may still lack advanced armoring features used in motorcycle racing gloves.


Leather is the commonly used material. They are durable and long lasting. Most of the designs made out of these materials are sleek and stylish. Examples of the stylish design you can use are gauntlet motorcycle gloves. They are usually padded and lined.


Motorcycling gloves are especially to protect the bikers from injuries but these can also for fashion. These gloves are made from semi aniline of hide leather with 0.7 to 0.8mm in thickness with nickel protection coat which is available in Kevlar.

Stitching is done with silver nylon.


FAP-MTCG-001-SGloves intended for motorcycle racing typically incorporate preserved finger sections and the best available protection, obtained through additional armor incorporated within the glove. Although maximum facility is an obvious starting point for racing gloves, additional protection should not be discarded. Additional protection may involve titanium or carbon panels for knuckles and the joints of the fingers. Furthermore, racing gloves may and often do incorporate additional wrist and other protection panels to protect the heel of the hand, back of the hand and other easily injured parts of the hand.

gloves_01b-SThe gloves used in the sports of racing over bumpy ground on specially strengthened motorcycles are called motor cross gloves or MX gloves.

Freestyle Motocross (also known as FMX) is a variation on the sport of motor cross gloves in which motorcycle riders attempt to impress judges with jumps and stunts.

The two main types of freestyle events are:

Big Air (also known as Best Trick), in which each rider gets three jumps — usually covering more than 60 feet (18 m) — from a dirt-covered ramp. A panel of 10 judges evaluates the style, trick difficulty, and use of the course, and produces a score on a 100-point scale. Each rider’s highest single-jump score is compared; top score wins.

Freestyle Motocross, the older of the two disciplines. Riders perform two routines, lasting between 90 seconds and 14 minutes, on a course consisting of multiple jumps of varying lengths and angles that generally occupy one to two acres (.4 to .8 hectares). Like Big Air, a panel of judges assigns each contestant a score based on a 100-point scale, looking for difficult tricks and variations over jumps

The risk of injury is inherent in the sport of motor cross biking, especially in the more extreme disciplines such as downhill biking. Injuries range from relatively minor wounds, such as cuts and abrasions from falls on gravel to serious injuries such as striking the head or spine on a boulder or tree. Protective gear such as motor cross gloves can protect against minor injuries, and reduce the extent or seriousness of major impacts, but it cannot protect a rider against the most serious impacts or accidents.

Gloves intended for motor cross riding usually feature preserved finger sections and the best available protection, obtained through additional armour incorporated within the glove. Although maximum tactility is a noticeable starting point for motor cross gloves, additional protection should not be discarded. Additional protection may involve titanium or carbon panels for knuckles and the joints of the fingers. Furthermore, motor cross  gloves may and often do add in additional wrist and other protection panels to protect the heel of the hand, back of the hand and other easily injured parts of the hand.

FAP-MTCG-003-SThese are typical gloves made of leather or textile with Nickel protection covered by Kevlar. Perforated leather is used on fingers and wrist for ventilation. These gloves generally have reinforced palms anticipated better grip and to protect the riders from scratch injuries in case of an accident. These gloves also come with special straps which vary in size from small to 2/L. These gloves are also available in different colors like money green, white, black, navy blue, maroon, yellow, red, burgundy and even interesting colors like charcoal and concrete.
