Located in Cedar Park, in central Texas, Powersport Superstore is one of the largest sellers of accessories and parts for motorcycles, personal watercraft, ATVs, and UTVs on the Internet. Powersport Superstore also offers a broad range of related equipment, protective apparel, and safety gear. Riding off-road on a motorcycle, ATV, or UTV can be enormous fun, but the pastime carries the potential for injury. Responsible riders protect themselves as much as possible with the appropriate gear. As an added bonus, many of the items manufactured to enhance riders’ safety are designed to be stylish. The first safety consideration should be the rider’s head. Anyone riding off-road should wear a helmet approved by the Department of Transportation. Riders can be thrown from their vehicles or run into low-hanging tree branches, and wearing the proper helmet can significantly reduce the chances of serious injury to the skull or brain. Eye and ear protection are also critical, as insects and other debris can injure a rider’s eyes if they are not shielded, and at speed, wind noise can damage one’s hearing if ears are left unprotected. While some may be more important than others, all parts of the body should be protected when riding a vehicle off-road, and there are many different stylish jackets and trousers for this purpose. In addition, riders should wear gloves designed to protect the hands in the event of a fall, when the instinct is to break a fall with the hands. It is also important to protect elbows and knees with pads designed for that purpose, and good pair of boots rounds out the package. Other specialty items designed to protect the body when riding off-road include neck protectors, which reduce or prevent spinal column injury, and chest guards to protect the chest from abrasion. A smaller type of chest protection, roost protectors deflect debris, mud, dirt, and rocks kicked up by other riders.
