In the vast world of moto gear and apparel there’s plenty of faux producers out there alongside massive conglomerates simply looking to make a buck. So, to save you from getting duped, here we have listed the real stuff. Here is a list of the best motorcycle gear brands in the world.
At their core, motorcycles are about escaping the mundane banalities of everyday life. The car, the job, the McMansion. All fabricated mechanisms of “need” in this day and age. Alms NYC looks to upend that mentality, one product at a time. It’s here where the NYC-based brand builds minimalist carry goods that are inspired by those aforementioned escapist principles brought on by moto culture — complete with a futuristic urban vibe that could only be incepted from within the concrete jungle of the Big Apple.
Let’s state the obvious. Yes, this is a women’s motorcycle brand. However, what Atwyld has been able to accomplish for female riders in the moto arena is incredibly noteworthy. Building both stylish and incredibly functional gear and apparel, their mountain-to-sea-to-desert inspired lineup is at the ready for when the lines between fear and thrill become blurred.
The brandless brand allowing riders to brand themselves — we’ll explain in a moment — Canvas MX began as a way for one dedicated rider to raise enough money to compete in the Oakland Supercross. What followed was a keen idea to allow racers of all persuasions to build out custom moto gear and apparel to their liking — hence the “Canvas” aspect of the company. It’s truly an innovative idea that yields unique gear that will surely be one of a kind.
Crave For Ride
Not all motorcycle gear needs to scream “biker” across it. Believe it or not, however, before Crave For Ride burst onto the scene back in 2013, that was more difficult to come across than you’d think. Hence Crave’s mission to build rider-ready gear that functions just fine on its own. One of their staple products? How about a flannel shirt fully lined with DuPont Kevlar? Yeah, they thought of that first. And since we’re convinced you’re sold on the brand as well, we’ll let curiosity take it from here.
Not all brands are founded. Sometimes, they just happen. Such is the case with the Orange County family that comprises Cycle Zombies. And it was with a keen interest in surfing, skating, and building/repairing old motorcycles that Cycle Zombies just happened on the Southern California motorcycle scene. Not only do they specialize in bringing zombie rides back to life but their apparel and gear lineup serve as a welcome juxtaposition to the pristine, well-manicured beaches and homes along this stretch of coastline.
Deus Ex Machina
Initially established in Sydney as a ragtag brand that surfed when the swell was up and worked out of their shop building bikes during flat spells has since exploded into a lifestyle brand touching just about every continent on earth. Yes, they’re that well respected in the space. Not only does their gear and apparel speak for itself, but the sheer ingenuity of their motorcycle builds and quality of their media arm only act to support the notion that Deus is here for the long haul — wherever that journey make take them.
