Motorcycle gear for summer: off-road, highway and city

A perfect day for a biker requires a combination of many factors, starting with the weather. The climate should be cool, without being cold, but the road should be at a high temperature, for a perfect grip on the tires. The wind is our worst enemy.

It seems complicated right? The heat is exhausting en route, hence spring and autumn are the most popular seasons. However, the rise of the thermometer does not have to get off both wheels, you just have to know where to look for the best motorcycle gear for summer. Brands like Acerbis (off-road), By City (urban) or BMW (road) They have a wide range of suits, helmets, gloves and accessories suitable for high temperatures.
