As we embrace the cooler temperatures that come with Adventure season, the thought of stashing away your bike might cross your mind. However, rather than opting for the car or transit, let’s get you geared up to conquer the elements. We've curated a selection of our favorite items that ensure your warmth and safety on two wheels so your riding season never has to end.
Do Everything Jacket
Are you in search of a versatile jacket that won't break the bank? It might sound impossible, but Rev’it has come close with the Sand 4 H2O jacket. With its numerous vents and three layers (outer, waterproof, and thermal), you can easily adjust your internal temperature to match the current conditions. Nothing beats the sand 4 for versatility per dollar!
No water worries
Do you already own a riding jacket but need an effective way to make it waterproof? The Scott Ergonomic Pro Rain Gear does precisely what it promises: it offers comfort while keeping you dry. The material is stretchy and breathable, ensuring it keeps you rain-free even during a downpour. You can find matching tops and bottoms in both men's and women's versions, with color options ranging from low-key black to unmissable high-viz yellow.
Bring the heat
The BMW HeatUp vest is our top choice for staying warm when the temperatures plummet. Its five heating elements perform exceptionally well and are remarkably thin and comfortable, making it the best option we've encountered. Just make sure to pair it with the controller for fine tuned adjustments.
Hands-down the best
Finding a single pair of gloves that offers waterproofing, safety, dexterity, and comfort can be a challenge, but that's precisely what the Five TFX-1 gloves deliver. These gloves were originally designed for ADV riding but they are so good we recommend them for everyone. The only downside is that perfection comes at a cost, literally. They may not be cheap but they are worth it.
Best foot forward
Love your books but wish they were waterproof? The BMW HydroSock is a clever solution for transforming your favorite motorcycle footwear into all-weather gear. Slip these over your regular socks and inside your boots to provide an extra layer of waterproofing, ensuring your feet stay warm and dry even in the wettest conditions.
Back to baselayers
The Ducati Warm Up 2 Thermal base layers are perfect for keeping you cozy in cold weather. This collection includes tops, bottoms, a balaclava, and even socks, all of which are designed to be unisex. They are made from strategically placed knits of Dryarn, which effectively wicks away perspiration, ensuring you stay sweat-free even when working hard in chilly conditions.
