Being mobile is one of life’s luxuries. But with motorcycles being within the reach of many Filipinos, commuting to and from work or enjoying a leisurely ride is now possible for everyone given this universal freedom of mobility. Despite this, it still pays to put safety ahead at all times.
This is why road safety is not only limited to motorcycle maintenance but to what riders should wear as well. Honda Philippines, Inc. (HPI), the No.1 motorcycle manufacturer in the country hopes to help keep Filipino riders safe by making everyone aware of the essential riding gear needed for safe riding.
Helmet – The first and most important gear riders should invest in is a helmet. Indeed, a helmet will not just keep you safe while complying with Republic Act No. 10054 or the Motorcycle Helmet Act of 2009. The said law that prohibits riding motorcycles without a helmet. This headgear is crucial in protecting riders since the head is what we should protect first. However, it’s not just important to have a helmet, it’s also important to get the right one. Your headgear should have a Philippine Standard (PS) or Import Commodity Clearance (ICC) sticker. These regulatory stickers tell you that it has undergone proper safety testing.
Gloves – Another essential gear riders should have, are a pair of riding gloves. Choose a pair of full-fingered riding gloves that also have hard plastic components like knuckle and palm guards. This type of design not only helps you grip the handles properly, but it also helps protect your hands in case of accidents. Besides, the right riding gloves make you look stylish and cool while protecting your hands as well.
Boots – Footwear is also an important item you should have. So, investing in the right pair of riding boots must be high on your must-have list. Ideally, it should be able to protect your ankles and part of your calves. However, dedicated riding boots can be pricey, but it can offer your feet enough protection – while also looking stylish enough for the office.
Riding Jacket and Jeans – The last type of riding item you should invest in is the riding jacket and jeans.

Remember, the right riding jacket and jeans make for a more comfortable and safer ride.
