As you know, safety riding gear is a major concern when riders 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. Hanoi Motorbike Rental imports some quality motorcycle safety riding gear and equipment and you could hire them for 5 USD/day for all of the following items. All are quality products.
– Summer protection knee and elbow pads (Scoyco – A Chinese premier brand)
– Full face or open face HJC helmets CL-33 (A Korean product)
– Quality MX Scoyco, Fox and Pro-Biker fingerless and full gloves (Premier Chinese brands)
Most of Hanoi Motorbike Rental 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.
