Top Ten Christmas and Holiday Motorcycle Gift Ideas for Women Riders
Author: Steve Smith Date Posted:24 October 2017
The holiday season is just around the corner, friends! This year, let AdventureMoto help you navigate the growing world of women’s motorcycle gear, to help keep your loved ones safe, sound and comfortable on their two-wheeled adventures.
We get it: Shopping for anyone can be tough, but women’s motorcycle gear is still a niche market that’s recently seen a great deal of growth. Even experienced riders might have a hard time choosing the perfect gift for a woman family member or friend, but if you’re not a rider yourself, it can be downright daunting. That’s why we at AdventureMoto have come up with a great list of gear for your fav femme fatale.
This year, avoid the masses at the shops, the pressure over what to buy, and the last-minute stress, and let us help you choose a gift that will not only be appreciated by your favorite female rider, but will also help keep her safer and more comfortable on the road. Because although she might be a free-wheeling wonder woman who can handle herself, an extra layer of protection never hurt, and a piece of well-thought out gear won’t ever go amiss.
Before you make a decision on a gift, make sure you have at least a rough idea of what she already has. If you don’t have easy access to her bike and kit, check out her social media for photos of bike and rider.
Next up, take a good look at her motorcycle. Does she have bags on the bike to carry around her gear? Is she riding with proper protection, or are you seeing photos of her risking life and limb by riding in t-shirts? Does she take spins around town, or is she riding for long hours or days at a time, through varying conditions?
While you’re checking out our suggestions, keep her bike, gear and riding habits in mind as best you can, to choose something she’ll really use and appreciate. But if you’re not so sure, don’t worry. We’ve chosen a selection of gear that any lady rider would be thrilled to have. And once you’ve made a decision, you’ll be able to to relax and enjoy the (holiday) ride!
10 Motorcycle Gift Ideas for Women Riders This Christmas:
One of the best women’s motorcycle jackets on the market today, the Klim Ladies Altitude will wrap up your fav rider in a layer of high-tech armour, Gore-Tex®, reflective material and high-abrasion Cordura®, all while tailored to the feminine form for maximum safety, comfort and style.
For the savage Australian heat, this is the base-layer your lady rider needs. With its BeCool™ technology, integrated airflow control, antibacterial nature and serious silky comfort, it’s the perfect companion to her riding attire.
Though the issue of chafing may be rather delicate, we’ve been hearing women swear by the Lady Skiveez! With their great design and padding, these are the perfect riding undies to keep your rider happy and chafe-free in the saddle.
We love this all-road and all-season ladies’ Nova Jacket by Macna, and know your special rider will, too! At an affordable price, it still offers the great rider protection, armour and durability we want for our loved ones.
With Australia’s variable weather, a lightweight 150gm merino wool shirt is the way to go. With its natural sun protection and odourless antibacterial properties and fibre that wicks sweat away, it’s the perfect year-round base-layer!
While mirrors may not be an obvious choice of gift, these Adventure Mirrors are virtually indestructible, fold up mirrors that offer superior visibility for your dearest rider to stay safer on the road.
We all want our riders to be as secure as they can be, and helmets are one of the single most important pieces of gear. But older model helmets are also heavy and clunky, causing neck and shoulder pain. That’s why we recommend the Klim Krios ADV helmet, weighing only 1500 grams while offering superior strength, performance and functionality.
Surprise your adventuress with a set of Wolfman Luggage Expedition Dry Saddle Bags this year. Whether she’s tackling the groceries, or the Kimberleys, she’ll be set with these durable and 100% waterproof bags made for the adventurous rider.
Women riders, like any rider, should be set up to deal with their bike problems as they arise. That’s why we recommend this super-light titanium 4-piece spanner set that won’t weigh her kit down.
We love the SPOT Gen3 GPS tracker, and suggest it to all our riders. Buy yourself some peace of mind, and know your loved one will have help at the push of a button should things go sideways. And an added bonus? The “Tracking” and “OK” buttons that will share their GPS coordinates with family and friends, and let the fan club know they’re okay!
