What is a Superbike?
A superbike is a kind motorcycle with a more powerful engine and gives a highly tuned performance. These bikes are perfect for racers and best not to be used for every day purpose. Their cubic capacity (aka cc) is usually more than 1000.
Superbike vs Motorcycle
Superbike as mentioned above is a category of motorcycle. They have highly powered engines that make them move swiftly. They are the best fit for racing, and long rides around.
Motorcycles have various categories and as mentioned above, Superbike is a part of it. Some people get confused between the two terms. There are various segments, and styles to choose from them. The style is implicit in the riding speed, purpose of the motorcycle, and the outer appearance. Every bike serves a different purpose, and every kind does not suit everyone.
Who should opt for Superbikes?
There are various segments of superbikes and you need to evaluate which one suits your purpose the most and opt for it. Firstly, superbikes do cost a lot of money. Secondly, needless to say, you need to keep a check on it now and then and may have to shell out more in case of repairs and other miscellaneous reasons. In case you wish to buy it from the second-hand market, examine how it has been treated by its previous owner and its present condition carefully and then choose whether to buy the same or not.

But not everyone is aware that there is more to add up- for both style as well as precaution. Whether you’re a Ducati enthusiast or a BMW aficionado, we've got accessories for everyone.Here is a list of things that make-up a Riding Gear.

All about Riding Gear
The riding gear as mentioned above are essential to a motorcyclist. Let us take a deep-dive into the topic to get to know more about them
Motorcyclist helmets are more commonly known, but still ignored among the people around. It is a very essential part of the riding gear. It mainly focuses on protecting the head from accidents. Some people prefer not to wear helmets for the reasons listed below:
Feeling of Suffocation
Fear of messing their hair
Inability to see ahead clearly
Unsurprisingly, their deliberate choice
As a human, we always regret our choices and think over them after they make a bad impact on us, wishing we could go back to a particular time to change things. It is better to end up with messy hair after a ride than messing our head or losing it completely. It is always better to spend more money on essentials, than to lose the most things in life- and it obviously is our own lives.
Make sure you check out our AGV helmets and Icon helmets collection.
Gloves make an essential part of riding gear. They can offer you protection while riding your bike. Our hands are used to do everything we want to get done. Imagine yourself without your hands. When you are going for a ride and fall down, the first part of your body that touches the ground tends to be your hand. In that case, they may get scratched, bruised or even broken. To offer immense protection from these, the motorcycle gloves are made. They are composed of thick leather, Carbon Fiber and Kevlar usually. Some people may be skeptical when it comes to wearing these for reasons such as price, sweaty hands, and just because they do not want to. Some opt for fingerless gloves. They may seem stylish and make a person look cool, but will not offer any protection to the fingers.
It is important to keep in mind that motorcycle jackets do not mean the jackets bikers wear to just look cool. It refers to the rider’s jackets that frame the riding gear and offer protection to the areas such as waist, elbows, arms where there will be a special padding or an armor to offer protection when there is an accident. The jacket will also allow adjustment in those areas to reduce the chances of bruising. Some jackets have mesh on them, so it will be easier for the air to pass through and the wearer will not get irritated due to the sweat as in our country, a lot of places are hot and humid.
Riding pants are similar to riding jackets and have mesh and armor around the kneecap area to offer. They may also be made of leather. In case you fall down, the armor or the leather will back you up, and the padding will offer comfort and prevent bruises. They also prevent the tearing of pants as it is common to get our pants and clothes torn when we fall down or experience accidents. The pants offer a good grip near the hamstrings so the riders do not slide off the bike and fall.
Riding boots are quite rejected. They are not made only to look fancy. They give protection to your toes, ankle and shin. They are made to protect you from the roads, hot pipes, rocks, and the heavy bike itself. Toe sliders help you from getting harmed when you lean your foot on to the ground. They can be replaced now and then. They offer comfort to the toes even after going for *long rides.
A Hydration Backpack should have its place as an essential item in the riding gear. It stores and holds water in huge volumes and you are saved from the troubles of having to look for water around. It contains a mouth cap and a hose for filling and drinking water without having to go through any trouble. Some hoses come with a bite valve, and when one bites on it, it opens and therefore prevents dust from entering it. Also, some of these packs are insulated- meaning it does not let any heat or cold touch and spread through the water.
Knee Braces are often given any importance. They can be uncomfortable to wear, but usually anything that is good does not make you feel good. They help you protect shin while you fall down. They feel hard when worn, but as stated help in prevention of serious injuries to your knees. Accidents and injuries are common for every rider. With practice one can overcome and prevent them. But unforeseen circumstances do occur and you will be thankful to yourself for investing your money on these sometime.
Some essential items that make up riding gear such as goggles, Balaclava, Riding Jersey, etc. are given lesser importance. Adding these to your attire makes your ride more secure. Motorcycle goggles act as a strong guardian against dust, water and sunlight. When any particle enters your eyes, they hinder your sight. They are fog resistant and can give you a clearer vision.
Balaclava- also known as ski masks are not only worn in cold weather conditions. They are also called Balaclava Helmets and are worn by motorcyclists under the helmet. These have a good part in riding gear. It helps in maintaining your personal hygiene especially if you are going to share your helmet with others. The helmet when worn will carry our sweat, dirt, and other substances that can affect another user when they wear it. Wearing a balaclava can prevent all these from seeping into the inside of the helmet. Balaclavas can keep you warm in cold weather especially in a mountain area, when you are going on a long ride, the temperature may drop and you will feel the cold hit you. Also, in helmets there is a padding and is prone to tearing. You can replace them if they tear but they may not be very cheap to afford, but wearing the mask helps provide proper protection from tearing.
Riding Jersey is worn to offer comfort while riding. The benefit derived entirely varies from product to product. These usually are soft clothing that helps your skin breathe- especially if you are to travel in hot/ humid weather, the last thing you would want is your skin to burn and feel the weather to get you in the middle of nowhere. Some of them even act as armor and shield your body from any damage.
