Riding suits come in different materials and options for pockets and closures. You may enjoy a one-piece suit with a racing feel for all-weather riding. Beyond the one-piece option, two-piece suits connect around the waist to simulate a one-piece and add extra weather protection while riding. You can also use the jacket or pants separately on a ride, where a one-piece is an all-or-nothing option.
Both suits offer strategic armor placements in the shoulders, back, elbows, hips, legs, and knees. They typically feature cinch-up wrists and ankles to help with wind and weather penetration. Leather and a Kevlar hybrid are plentiful in the hot summer, especially if you need extra abrasion protection. If you intend to ride in rain and wind, a textile material does a great job of shedding water.
