PODCAST: Balaclavas

Today’s balaclavas aim to do more than just keep riders’ heads and faces warm. Depending on the type of balaclava, anything from breathability to moisture wicking to wind resistance is key.

Today’s balaclavas aim to do more than just keep riders’ heads and faces warm. Depending on the type of balaclava, anything from breathability to moisture wicking to wind resistance is key.  

First, let’s consider the common fabrics used in balaclavas. Materials range from natural fibers, such as Merino wool, to blends, such as cotton and polyester, to pure synthetic, such as rayon. While at first glance, wool may seem a hot and heavy fabric compared to the others, it has its pros. For instance, it’s extremely soft and comfortable, and it is in fact more breathable than polyester. In addition, it has natural anti-microbial/bacterial properties that help it control odors.

How Motorcycle Gloves Enhance Grip and Control

A firmer grip creates an easier and more confident riding experience.

When talking about motorcycle gloves, we often focus on the safety aspect — armored knuckles or protection against the elements. But one of the most vital functions for gloves is to enhance grip and control while riding a motorcycle.

A glove’s grip directly impacts the rider's ability to maintain control over the bike, especially during acceleration, braking and cornering maneuvers. Without adequate grip, a rider's safety is compromised. Consider the dog days of a summer when the sun is beating down on you while riding. Not only are ungloved hands prime targets for sunburn but they can also get sweaty and slippery in that heat, making it that much tougher to get a good grip on the throttle.
