Tips when trying on
Why it is worth looking for special ladies' fits when it comes to clothing.
Height: As well as being smaller than men on average, women also have shorter arms and legs. For this reason, always pay attention to the fit of the protectors when trying on.
Chest: The sportier, or rather tighter, the leather jacket, the more important the design of the chest area.
Waist: Ladies' waist cut jackets don't just fit better, but look better as well. Don't forget about the back protector when trying on!
Hip: Hip protectors are another inevitable part If you're not keen, they can be easily removed, but in doing so, you would be doing away with a level of protection.
Stride length: Motorcycle trousers have to be cut "too long" to be able to sit properly on the machine and overlap the boots far enough. Exception: Leather combination trousers that tuck into your boots. The best way is to try them on with boots on a motorcycle, all at the same time.
Expert tip on choosing leather or textile: "Leather gear will certainly withstand a short shower if it's well impregnated. But for longer tours, you should remember to take rain gear with you. Lined rainsuits from Proof are ideal for cold, wet weather."
