When riding motorcycles in Canada, helmets
are a mandatory part of the equation. Choosing
the right helmet is integral to providing yourself
with the utmost protection. In Canada, riders are
required to have at least an E.C.E,
Snell or D.O.T. certified helmet.
Motorcycle jackets come in a variety of styles and
materials. Look for a jacket that suits your riding
needs while providing adequate protection,
comfort, and an appropriate fit. Your jacket should
be equipped with C.E. Approved armour in the
shoulders, elbows and spine.
Pants made for motorcycle riding are built
with sturdy materials like denim, leather or
textile and are often lined with Aramid/Kevlar®
reinforcements. They should included C.E.
certified armour in the knees.
Riding boots and shoes should come above the
ankle and include a no slip sole. They should have
internal or external reinforcements in the ankle,
heel and toe box.
Gloves are made in a variety of materials like
leather, textile and mesh. When choosing the most
protective pair for you, they should have a leather
or reinforced synthetic palm, should have no skin
exposure and be flexible enough for good use of
levers and controls.
