Motorcyclists and riders always pay a heavy price for road safety. Last year, 718 motorized two-wheeler users died in accidents; 5,400 were seriously injured. Lives could be saved and the consequences of a shock could be mitigated by adopting high-performance equipment.
The smart headset

To be seen while ensuring head protection, Shark innovates with a full-face helmet (Skwal i3, from 279 €) with smart brake lights. In the event of a strong slowdown, the front and rear LEDs flash.
The comfortable and functional modular helmet
HJC i100 modular helmet. HJC
For its part, HJC plays the card of comfort and versatility with the modular i100 (319,90 €). It multiplies the refinements: defogging of the screen, sunglasses, pre-equipment for communication system and front air intake.
Another essential equipment in the biker's toolbox, gloves gain in comfort.
Heated gloves, adapted to the temperature
iXS Season Heat-ST gloves. iXS
The Swiss iXS has developed the Season Heat-ST model (269 €) equipped with the Clim8 heating system that adjusts the temperature automatically using sensors. As for Spidi, it launches the X Force glove (€119.90) with a patented Velcro closure and clamping system. To ensure the protection of the upper limbs, Bering offers the Protect Air airbag vest (€299.99). Its strengths: it gets on clothes, does not need a strap. And works autonomously thanks to a battery.
