When it comes to making sure every ride is as enjoyable as it could be, there are two things that should be at the top of the agenda: protection and comfort. You may well have all of the protective gear in place, but it is hard to predict a sudden front of cold weather or indeed an event that could lead a ride to be delayed by quite some time. With a motorcycle there is no inbuilt heating system, you can’t close the windows and trap the heat in which is where heated motorcycle clothing can play an important part. Thermal and base layers are used for a number of purposes but prove especially useful with motorcyclists, where frequent and unexpected changes in temperature can make it difficult to know how to prepare for the elements before setting off. Thermal and base layers provide an additional layer with which heat is able to become trapped and in turn warm the body, they come in a variety of types such as pants, gilets, jackets, tshirts, neck warmers and gloves. Thermal and base layers are often constructed using breathable and very lightweight material, making them not only easier to carry around but more comfortable as an additional layer to existing protective wear.
