While we’re ATGATT (All The Gear All The Time) people around here, we won’t tell you not to ride in shorts and flip-flops. Deciding on the level of protection you’re comfortable with is a very personal choice. But understand you don’t have to look like a Power Ranger to be well protected. Impact protection is a key component to overall safety, and advancement in body armor technology has made it less of a sacrifice in convenience and comfort than ever. We think choosing the right motorcycle gear—including all the different options in impact protection—is another part of the fun of motorcycle ownership.
