From helmets, gloves, jackets, pants, and shoes, your riding gear definitely says a lot about who you are as a person, and the type of riding you actually do. As much as it's there to keep you safe in the event things go sideways, riding gear is also a fashion statement, a bold and proud badge we wear that tells the world of our passion for two wheels. That being said, motorcycle gear and equipment makers have been working tirelessly to create new and strikig designs to captivate the wide array of motorcyclists out there.
For the 2022 riding season, BMW Motorrad has released a new Rider Equipment Collection that's sure to keep you safe and stylish from head to toe—even if you don't own a BMW motorcycle. Of course, however, the Rider Equipment Collection has been designed with BMW machines in mind, especially when it comes to design. So, if you're a BMW enthusiast and want to elevate your riding gear, then be sure to read on, as these pieces are sure to hit BMW Motorrad dealerships very soon.
We kick things off with BMW's Plugged to Life range. It consists of a suite of practical and stylish pieces best suited for daily motorcycle rides. They employ subtle, understated designs which make them perfectly suitable for use both on and off the bike. Special mention for this ange is the Barcelona GTX suit, which has been designed as an everyday riding jacket that doesn't compromise on style, comfort, and safety. The Plugged to Life model range is perfect for those who ride machines like the BMW F 900 R, or even BMW's range of maxi-scooters, the C 400 GT and C 400 X.
Next up, we have the Never Stop Challenging range consisting of sporty riding gear for those looking to engage in sporty rides on the race track. Incorporating striking colorways inspired by BMW's M division, the M Pro Race Comp leather one-piece racing suit is the perfect piece of gear for you to standout on the circuit. Pair this with BMW's Sidepod AIR jacket for added style and protection, and you're more than ready to hit the track. Meanwhile, BMW's Soulfuel range harkens back to the golden age of motorcycling with its retro racer aesthetics. A perfect match for BMW's Heritage model lineup consisting of the R nineT and R 18, the Schwabing jacket and Moabit and Kreuzberg jeans offer unmistakable retro styling.
Last but not least, we can't talk about BMW Motorrad without talking about adventure. For the 2022 Rider Equipment Collection, we've saved the best for last with BMW's Spirit of GS range. The perfect match for those whose weapon of choice is one of the many BMW GS adventure bike options, the 2022 lineup is highlighted by the new GS Rally GTX suit, which is now available for the first time in a women's-specific fit. Of course, the GS Rally AIR suit makes a comeback, too, and is more than ready for your next adventure, be it long or short.
