Women are the fastest growing minority segment of motorcycle riders and the industry is starting to catch on. In fact female motorcycle ownership for 2016 raised the bar with an all-time high taking 14% of the U.S. motorcycle ownership pie.
Women’s riding gear has also come a long way over the past few years. The sad selection that used to be women’s motorcycle gear was compromised of men’s gear shrunken down to size and with a pink sticker slapped on it. While there isn’t anything wrong with pink gear, it’s a big assumption to say that all women want to wear pink. Additionally our bodies aren’t just smaller than the average man, they are shaped different.
Fortunately today nearly every major manufacturer makes women’s gear that not only fits but actually meets our specific needs. Popular companies like Roland Sands Design, Speed & Strength, Scorpion and Black Brand Motorcycle Clothing make stylish, proper fitting gear that will protect you when you need it most.
