From arm sleeves to helmets to tank bags to action cameras, the image of bikers has gone through a whole rollercoaster ride with their safety gear turning stylish. From leather jackets and patches to a plethora of colours available, experts explain how such accessories have got a makeover.
Leather pants would give off vibes of a seasoned professional rider.
Atul Pratap Singh, co-founder of RPM India—one of India's leading biker communities, says that biking gear has become a fashion statement and the number of options for serious bikers has increased too. Together with Sunil Dhingra of Jazzmyride.com, these experts dole out a list of trends in safety gear.
Helmets have gone through a design revolution. A great variety in design, shape, stickers and artwork like the ones features here has been spoiling the customer for choices these days.
They are all the rage now, and have also found their way on to biking gear. Whether it is jackets, pants, gloves, or even boots—these can be ironed on, pinned on, or sewn on patches and are available in designs pertaining to a rider's interest. The inspiration comes from knee and elbow caps that form some of the basic necessities when biking.
Earlier most of the accessories were only available in sombre and plain black, however, as the protective riding gear has gained a fashion cult status there are more colours, designs and shapes available.
Work the Leather
A biker clad in leather pants would give off the vibes of a seasoned professional rider. Buy one that looks good with the rest of your accessories and the bike. A rider wearing leather boots looks like he means business. Consider factors like length, material, colour and design detailing before buying one. Leather jackets with stronger and richer design elements are doing better.
A good way to style your attire is by going choosing the same brand for all your gear, so that there is a natural cohesiveness in the look, and it doesn't look like a mishmash of uncoordinated pieces.
There is a great demand today for armours among the riders, as this protective gear has gained the status of a fashion statement. The riders today are looking at unique designs and aesthetics are almost as important to them as the function.
