As you know, safety riding gear is only to protect yourself when you do an adventure on two wheels. In Vietnam, most local riders use top basic helmets that provide very little protection. The fatal rate is high due to poor equipment or fake products. Vietnam Offroad imports some quality motorcycle riding gear and equipment. You could hire them for 5 USD/day. A typical set includes an HJC helmet, a pair of Scoyco gloves, protection elbow pads (or jacket) and knee pads (or pants). All are quality products.
– Summer protection knee and elbow pads (Scoyco brand). This is a Chinese quality product.
– Full face or open face HJC helmets CL-33. This is a Korean brand, made in Vietnam or Korea.
– Quality MX Scoyco and Pro-Biker fingerless and full gloves. This is a Chinese leading brand.
Most of our customers bring their own riding gear to Vietnam. That is best because we don’t have all sizes in Vietnam. For example, M, L, XL are easy but either side will be hard (S, XS, XXL or XXXL). Many airlines don’t like to transport helmets so you may just buy or hire one when you are in Hanoi. Some shops near our office sell quality imported products starting from around 40$US for a full face HJC helmet like in this picture.
