Women are one of the fastest-growing demographics of motorcycle riders these days, and those women’s options for high-quality, stylish riding gear are growing just as quickly. A new generation of thrill-seeking ladies is hopping on the saddle and braving the fast lane clad in new, unerringly cool boutique brands that tap directly into motorcycle culture. This year, you should have no excuse to find stylish and functional gifts for the mom who rides.
Hedon Heroine Racer Helmet
Since you’re talking about someone’s mama, it’s not a bad idea to invest in a top-shelf cranium cover. Not only will mom’s locks be properly blanketed from ripping winds, but her brain cells will avoid a brutal cha-cha slide on unforgiving asphalt if she goes down.
The Heroine Helmet is not only winsome but also functional. The ultralight, low-profile shell makes it perfect for a female rider. The wide field of vision, anti-fog double lens, three-channel ventilation system, and Hed Armor lining inside with Merlin anti-bacterial fabric all bring added value to this DOT-certified helmet.
The Pit Crew Jumpsuit
Mom jeans may be back in, but the classic garage jumpsuit is still heating up high-fashion runways worldwide. The utility onesie is made from a super-soft sanded cotton chino twill that’s been hit with a vintage enzyme wash.
With a roadside-relaxed look of rolled sleeves and a zippered patch pocket, the retro jumper tapers at the waist for a more feminine look. You’ll be hardened to find a mom-bod silhouette this outfit doesn’t flatter.
Raen Norie Sunglasses
These roadside stunners come in retro, bone-colored frames and brown rose mirror CR-39 lenses—manufactured by Carl Zeiss Vision and boasting 100-percent UVA/UVB protection when staring straight into the blinding sun. The five-barrel hinges are embedded in each temple, making for a strong and sturdy pair of sunnies that can take on going full-throttle.
Godspeed Leather Riding Gloves
Adorn your handlebars — and armor your phalanges — with these riding gloves from P&Co.’s Godspeed Collection. The 100-percent cowhide leather eliminates bulk, and is smooth and comfortable while keeping hands warm and dry. The breathable material also provides ample dexterity to keep a grip on the controls.
The reinforced palm overlay integrates a durable stretch to accommodate rings and an elasticated cuff for other wrist jewelry. And the embossed graphics on top of the hands and lightning bolt on the throttle palms are undeniably rad.
Logo Coach Collared Jacket
This badass bomber features an embroidered twill logo patch, branded snap buttons, and an adjustable drawstring hem at the waist to pull it tighter. While the Logo Coach is certainly a statement fashion piece, don’t underestimate its practicality; it has been tried and tested along mountain roads, across arid deserts, and in high winds. The super-soft brushed cotton makes it an essential layering jacket for chillier days.
Red Wing Women’s Moc
As soon as you sense the urge to put the pedal to the medal (so to speak), lace up the Red Wing Moc Boots. The commanding-yet-refined Mocs double-dip as both on- and off- road shoes—good for city exploring and hiking, as well as a safe-riding kickstart boot. Expertly made in Red Wing, Minnesota, these puppies feature Goodyear leather welt construction, polyurethane traction tread outsole, and shock-absorbing cork filler under the footbed. The oil-tanned leather is water-, stain-, and perspiration-resistant, and gives a more natural look. Meanwhile, the subtle heel easily registers foot pegs.
Moto Sling Bag
This backpack is uniquely handcrafted from upcycled Langlitz motorcycle jacket leather in the Pacific Northwest. The simplistic riveted shoulder sling bag dupes the untrained eye with all its storage tricks, without sacrificing style, durability or space. A secure roll-top folds down; adjustable straps and a dog-clip closure able to fasten down an additional gear, while quilted pockets deliver extra storage. The backside’s “registration tag sleeve” with a clear vinyl window ensures you won’t go unknown on your two-wheeled adventures.
Love Wild Barley Blue Bandana
Designer Jenni Earle brings this hand-dyed, hand-drawn, screen-printed bandana from Winston-Salem, North Carolina to all the wild-hearted ladies. The super-soft cotton provides comfort on dirt roads or in inclement weather, while the edgy motif encourages spontaneity and desire. Look close, and you can find the words “love is the wildness” and “feel the fear” printed on its free-spirited design.
Caffeine & Gasoline Travel Mug
There’s always time for an on-the-go pick-me-up, isn’t there? Thos trendy matte black mug features P&Co. graphic artwork and is made BPA-free in the European Union. Right on track with the burgeoning eco-friendly train, this reusable traveling sippy cup is perfect for transporting your daily hot coffee and iced juices.
Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth Headset/Intercom
Whether you have an afternoon to yourself or you’re embarking on a weekend trip, the Sena not only allows you to groove to your favorite tunes while drowning out the unarming roar of the bike blaring, but it also lets you perform hands-free conference calls by pairing with three other nearby headsets. Its music playback feature comes built into speakers, which attach to the inside of the helmet, so you don’t have to worry about wires getting in the way. GPS-device pairing, adjustable volume profiles, and two USB charging units are other handy benefits.
