  • There are a lot of great reasonably priced riding pants out there. Anything from leather, textile, mesh or denim with padding at all the potential impact points.
  • Boots; ankle and arch protection, many times especially at slow speeds one of your feet will be the first thing that will make contact.
  • Visibility; another area that is not thought of much, there is a great deal of products on the market that aid in this area.
