Dress in Layers

Dress in Layers

 Base Layer
A base layer refers to the first item of clothing that  you should ware next to the skin when riding your motorbike. Base layers let moisture move away from your body quickly which keeps you dry and comfortable . Base layer's need to be  made from either synthetic material in order to breathe and dry easily, or organic materials such as merino wool, which has excellent odour-fighting, cooling and heating properties and stays very warm if wet. A good Base layer would be constructed with  Flat Lock seams in order to be more comfortable . Base layers and mid layers are very important to help the  breathability of your riding gear. If moisture can not travel through these under layers then it will not reach the membrane of any waterproof - severely depleting the waterproof's ability to breathe properly and thus making you feel sweaty or damp. Please note cotton T-shirt's are not recommended to be worn under breathable Gore-tex Jackets as they do not wick the moisture away from you body.

 Mid Layer
Is a type of of clothing that is worn between the base layer  and your motorbike jacket. Mid layers are normally made from a high warmth-to-weight ratio, fast-drying synthetic fleece material such as a fleece top. A fleece is designed to be worn as an insulating layer and help with the breathability and comfort of the layering system. 

 Gore-Tex outer Jacket
 Gore-Tex jacket's and trouser's are designed to be durably waterproof, windproof and breathable  when properly cared for. They work efficiently when they are worn over the above layer's Gore-tex Jacket's and trouser's come in various forms.

  • Gore-tex  Armacor   A 3 layer laminate that is completely waterproof, windproof, very abrasion proof and very breathable. Complete protection and guaranteed to keep you warm.
  • Gore-tex Performance Shell   This is a very thin membrane (2 or 3 layer laminate)  that is inserted under the outer material of the clothing and makes it permanently waterproof, windproof, and breathable. Micropores let the vaporizing sweat out,but don't let the rain in.
  • Gore-tex Pro Shell  Is a very breathable type of protection which is very comfortable. The membrane is 25% more breathable than the normal Gore-tex laminates and is permanently wind and waterproof.
