Motorcyclists are some of the most vulnerable people on the road and it only takes one silly mistake to put their lives at risk. That isn’t an over statement, as a close friend of mine had a very lucky escape whilst driving down a straight section of road; a car pulled right out in front of him from a junction on the left (Duke of Edinburgh style) and unknown to him, his left indicator was still ticking away from a previous manoeuvre, leading the driver of the car to believe it was safe to pull out.
The Tech 10 from Alpinestars are an innovative pair of protective Motocross boots that are packed full of features for high performance and defence when participating in this crazy sport. For over a decade the Tech 10 has been a reliable boot, but this summer the company have completely redesigned to raise the quality even further, whilst maintain the classic look. The redesign focused on the functionality, performance and safety, with the aim to reduce the overall weight as well as the material volume for a greater range of movement and flexibility.
Whether you are out on a motorbike or a horse, chances are that if you come off it, even at low speeds, you are going to do yourself some real damage. So, no, safety clothing isn’t a very cool look - I mean, you never see cowboys or Hell’s Angels dressed head to toe in PPE, but it’s so important to dress appropriately when riding, and when that clothing could potentially save your life, style is not important.
