The Miracle Of Protective Motorcycle Shirts, StreetRider Insurance, Ontario

Your motorcycle shirt should protect you from more than just the weather. Technological advances have allowed manufacturers to make protective motorcycle shirts that keep you safe and looking good.

1| Aramid and Kevlar

Aramid and Kevlar are exceptionally strong synthetic materials. In fact, Kevlar was first used as a steel replacement in racing tires. Look for Kevlar protection between the inner lining and outer shell of the shirt. These Kevlar reinforcements can be in the back, front, and arms of the shirt. Shirts fully lined in aramid material will offer you protection from abrasions.

2 | Armour Pockets 

Hidden pockets in the elbows, shoulders, and back allow you to add or remove extra armour. Extra armour is usually sold separately, but this is a great option for you to add protection where you need it the most. Some shirts also have deep zippered pockets to hold your belongings.

3 | Lookin’ Good

There are several options of protective motorcycle shirts that look like everyday clothing. Even though they look like normal shirts, they are built as strong as a riding jacket. Look for zip-open armpit vents for increased airflow. There are different looks available to match your style, including button up flannel and denim.
