Riding up and down your favorite stretch of mountain road can be a blast as you work on perfecting your lines, timing your braking and throttle control, and getting your body positioning just right to nail the perfect run. However, even in the summertime the mountain temperatures can get pretty warm and when you couple high temps with full leather riding gear and head to toe protective wear it can feel like you're in a mobile sauna. You can still have great protective wear but plenty of ventilation with the right gear as we've highlighted below.
