News and Reviews Section — Motorcycle Protectors Product Review
The main aim of motorcycle riding gear is protecting the driver. Motorcycle protective clothing consists mainly of the helmet, the motorcycle jacket, leather trousers and boots.
Motorcycle jackets are usually worn for their armor value, which prevents major injuries to the driver in the event of falls or accidents. The jacket was invented in 1946, and it was made famous by Marlon Brando in 'The Wild One.' The leather jacket protects a driver's torso and arms. The motorcycle leather jacket is different from the classic leather jacket, because it is used more as armor than a fashion statement. The motorcycle leather jacket protects the driver from cold, wind and abrasions.
There are two major types of leather motorcycle protective outfits, the colorful single-piece ones predominantly seen on the race track, and the traditional jacket and trouser type. The leather trousers and jackets are generally metal-studded and are preferred by biker gangs.
