The roar of a motorcycle engine is unmistakably associated with brands like Harley Davidson, Ducati and Triumph. The Urban / Cafe rider requires motorcycle safety gear that can take on all weather conditions. Whether this season you’re taking your Iron 883 with the local motorcycle club down to Sturgis South Dakota, or riding on your new Ducati Scrambler down North Carolina on the tail of the dragon, Motochanic has the best selection of Urban / Cafe motorcycle gear.
Starting with your head, you need a quality cruiser motorcycle helmet that offers excellent protection. Bell helmets are popular among riders since they offer vintage style helmets from the 1960s and 70s. Bell Custom 500’s are one of the best helmets that you can use as part of your riding gear. Another choice is the Bell Bullitt, which is inspired by the original Bell Star design. Its features include exceptional details, comfortable fit, high ventilation, and of course -- the vintage style that you have always dreamed of.
Shark helmets also produce some of the most innovative designs made for Harley cruisers and urban riders. The Shark Raw helmet features goggles that are also fog-free and scratch-resistant. The helmet is made up of a hypoallergenic lining and for maximum comfort it has a lightweight shell that is suitable for those seeking a unique and protective helmet.
Cruiser jackets are also an essential part of riding gear especially when traveling on the open road. There is no better choice for leather cruiser jackets than a Roland Sands Designs (RSD) jacket. If you want to feel like a rock star cruising on your motorcycle to roads less traveled, put on a Roland Sands Clash Jacket.
Apart from the favorite RSD jackets, you might consider heated liners, jackets and vests by Gerbing’s. Gerbing heated clothing is an excellent choice for a durable and attractive motorcycle jacket, liner and vest that provides a great level of warmth for every rider. Gerbing prides itself on the Microwire and Thinsulate technology presented on each of their heated clothing.
Gerbing's protective clothing is mostly heated and made with several layers to help offer protection against wind, ice, rain, and snow for those who live or plan to venture in different climates. Put on the heated vests plus heated gloves from Gerbing and you will be cruising along the road feeling simply warm and comfortable. Remember that keeping warm and comfortable during the entire ride is critical for mental and physical concentration when riding for longer periods of time.
When selecting vintage motorcycle boots make sure the boots or shoes you pick feel snug up to the heel. Since most urban motorcycle boots are made of leather, it is important to remember that they may stretch via the width over time. Dainese Street Rocker shoes are made from tough cowhide and they are loved for their highly resistant feature that offers both style and durability for the rider. These shoes are also waterproof and have a breathable membrane to make sure your feet feel comfortable all the time.
The Miami shoe is a new addition from Stylmartin boots and intended for riders who want casual shoes that can be trendy and protective at the same time. These boots are durable and light, and can be worn not just by motorcycle cruisers but also commuters, scooter riders, and urban / cafe riders. The Stylmartin Miami shoe has a waterproof liner that helps keep your feet dry when riding in the rain.
Going for a cruise on your motorcycle is truly an epic adventure that puts you in charge of the road. Our Urban / Cafe motorcycle gear and helmet selection ranges from some of the most known, respected and protective brands in our industry.
