Rider Equipment


Helmet, BMW Enduro.  A fantastic helmet that is light and very comfortable.
Other contenders were: Shuberth C3, Arai, Shoei

Gloves, Wiess enduro.  Very comfortable with good meshing for ventilation and hard protection over the knuckles.  These gloves are excellent value too.
Other contenders: Klim, BMW,

Jacket, Klim Traverse with Forcefield Armour.  This jacket is very light and has excellent ventilation.  It also has a Goretex outer shell, ready for those African rain storms. Other contenders: Re’vit, Hein Gericke Taureg,

Pants, Spada Adventure.  I would have preferred the Klim Traverse trousers, but these came recommended, so hopefully they go the distance.
Other contenders: Klim Traverse, Hein Gericke Taureg,

Boots, W2 Adventure boots.  I did a lot of research on boots and again this is not my first choice, which would have been the Sidi Adventure boots.  But cost was a factor, and a read a lot of favourable reviews on the W2, so I’m looking forward to seeing how they perform. Other contenders: Sidi Adventure, Daytona, Altbergs, BMW
