SUMMERS AND MESH: A STORY WRITTEN IN RIDER HEAVEN
Imagine this: it’s summer, you’re about to head out for a ride and you wear what’s most comfortable to you at that moment: a t-shirt, shorts, and some flip-flops. While it sounds tempting, don’t be that person! It’s understandable when it’s really hot, a t-shirt seems to be the perfect fit, maybe for a short ride. But what about highway speeds and long rides? Moreover, we can all agree that a t-shirt isn’t going to protect you much should you meet the tarmac.
The smartest thing a rider can do at this point is switch to riding gear made with mesh. Mesh is going to be the key component to keeping you cool and comfortable during the summer. It allows maximum airflow while still providing a barrier between your skin and the tarmac, elements, sunburning rays and whatever else you might encounter on the road.

This is just a teaser of what is available to you to ace that summer ride. Explore more options until you find the perfect partner for your summer rides. But besides the gear there are a few other things you should remember when venturing out on a ride under the sun:
- Excessive heat makes you sweat. The most vital defense you can have for yourself, even more than fancy ventilated jackets, is to stay hydrated.
- The windscreen on your bike can make or break your experience when you’re riding in the heat. Choose a motorcycle that isn’t going to be a constant hindrance to your health and comfort when you ride it.
