*Specific Adventure Touring gear is not required for this course, but it's specially designed for the type of riding you’ll be doing off-road.
Here are some benefits of Adventure Touring specific gear:
Helmet: Choose a full-faced helmet. Those featuring a sun visor, room for goggles and an integrated dust filter work the best.
Boots: Over the calf boots provide stability and protection. they can also reduce fatigue from standing for long periods while riding.
Jacket and Pants: Adventure Touring jackets and pants are abrasion resistant and feature pockets for body armor. they are cut to let you move freely in both the standing and seated position.
Gloves: Adventure Touring gloves are vented and abrasion resistant. They’re designed to let your hands move freely because riding off-road may require greater control manipulation than riding on the street.
