Gear up for winter weather

When the cold weather sets in your scooter may be ready to keep riding but are you? Below are some suggestions for gear to keep you warm and comfortable all winter long.

Heated Apparel
NEW for 2014! We're stocking heated vests and jackets from Venture Heat. In recent years some of the big name power tools companies have been producing heated apparel, but the garments are often sold separately from the battery packs which are large and bulky, borrowing from similar battery systems you'd see on power tools. That's why we're excited about Venture Heat:

  • Venture heat apparel includes a rechargeable lithium ion battery
  • The battery pack is small making the apparel easy and comfortable to wear
  • There are three heat settings so you can customize your comfort
  • Battery life is between 2-6 hours depending on heat setting
  • Available for men and women
  • No need to make separate purchases– everything you need to stay warm comes in one package. 
  • Product prices range from $170-$200
Heated garments are great not just for riding but for sporting events, camping or working outdoors during the colder months of the year. Also a great gift idea for the holidays!

Full Face Helmet
The obvious choice for keeping your head at its warmest during the winter is a full face helmet. But not only are full-face helmets the best protection from wind and cold, they're the safest option for any rider be it the casual weekend rider or the year-round commuter.

At Moto Strada we stock Gmax helmets for their great value and DOT approved protection. Our most popular model– worn by both the owner and mechanic– is versatile with plenty of venting, a removable, ratcheting clear shield and retractable sun shades. It also has an LED on the back that can stay on or blink for added safety. 

A balaclava or ski mask is a great add-on to the full-face helmet to really maximize protection from wind and cold. A well-fitted one won't get in your way and will extend coverage to your neck. Balaclavas are available by special order.

A good pair of gloves can make all the difference when riding in cold weather. Look for gloves that are well-insulated, wind and water resistance and slip-resistant with good grips. Many gloves are lined with Thinsulate® which provides an extra layer of warmth. Gloves that extend up past the wrist are also a good choice to minimize wind from reaching up your sleeves.

At Moto Strada we recommend the Joe Rocket Sub-Zero riding gloves. They have all the features recommended above plus padded knuckles for extra safely and protection. And the best part? They're only $34.99!

High-Visibility or Reflective Gear
Winter days are short on daylight so whether your commute leaves you riding in the dark or a nice afternoon ride lets you lose track of time, reflective and high-visibility gear and accessories will help other drivers see you even after hours. Below are a few suggestions to improve your visibility in the dark–
  • Consider a helmet with build in LEDs. 
  • If your helmet doesn't have a built-in LED, there are still options! We sell Halo reflective bands that wrap easily around your helmet for added visibility. 
  • Many riding jackets come in a High Visibility color option but if that's not your style, consider purchasing a reflective or neon vest that can be layered over your regular jacket, then taken off when you reach your destination.
