If you ride and have not used heated clothing, you are missing out.
Maybe you only ride when the weather is warm but there are so many beautiful cold weather days during the winter across the country that are great for a ride but you need to make sure you are properly dressed. The windchill on a bike can be extreme. But it doesn’t have to be winter to experience getting cold on a bike as in many parts of the country the weather can change fast especially when riding at higher elevations.
Aside from the simple fact that heated clothing makes a cold ride more enjoyable, it also keeps you safer. When a body is overly cold, reflexes are slowed and physical responses are jerky. It’s hard to use the controls on a bike if your hands and feet are numb. Volt Heated Gloves and Socks will both help to offset the effects of the cold.
Hypothermia is the number one killer of outdoor enthusiasts during winter, and you are rarely aware of it when it’s happening. Your energy reserves become exhausted and your core body temperature drops below normal. When the chill reaches vital organs such as the brain (this follows aggregated shivering) your judgment is skewed. You may first be aware something is wrong when you lose control of your hands. When your core temperature reaches 90 degrees you lose consciousness.
Many things affect how cold you get on a bike. Windshieds, body fat content and what we’ve eaten before the ride all play a role, but nothing has a bigger effect that what you are wearing. Even with a heating source, the apparel is important.
To get the most out of the Volt Heated Jacket Liner, it should be worn close to the skin without contacting it. A long sleeve base layer is the best choice. A thicker additional layer worn over the jacket liner and then under your outer jacket is ideal for retaining the heat.
Another great option for cold weather riding is the Fusion Line of products from Volt. They not only allow you to stay warm on the bike but off the bike as well. The perfect choice for those cold weather rallies where you ride-in and need the portable heat while socializing with fellow bikers and vendors.
So don’t get left out in the cold. The Volt motorcycle line of heated gear are all easily packable to help keep you prepared for all cold weather riding situations.
