VIDEO: Buying the right motorcycle clothing

There’s lots of choice when it comes to motorcycle clothing so when it comes to first time buyers, it’s sometimes difficult to know what to buy.

We spoke to the Joe Ross, RST Race Department, who gave us a run down of what you should look for when it comes to buying motorcycle clothing.

Whether you’re after leathers or textiles, a one piece suit or just a brand new jacket, RST talk you through what to look for when it comes to feel and fit.

We asked RST whether you really need full protective clothing, whether armour is really necessary, how to pick between textiles and leathers, what all year options are available and whether you should try motorbike clothing on before you buy.
