Safety Motorbike Riding Gear Rental Price
Offroad Vietnam organizes motorcycle touring by motorbikes, motorcycles and also moped scooters. We understand how dangerous riding without safety gear and equipment. In reality, road accident in Vietnam is among the highest in the world. Therefore we do recommend to rent gear if you want a safe and comfortable adventure.
The cost is 5 USD per day per person for independent riders and 3 USD per day per person for riders booking a guided tour. We used to provide these gear free in 2007. However, we charge this money to cover laundry and maintenance to make sure that the gear is always in good conditions.
Why Safety Riding Gear?
The whole idea behind a bike tour is to see roadway and scenery that you have never seen before. Along with the thrill of travelling new roads, comes the danger of the unknown and also unexpected. We want each and every tour to be an enjoyable, memorable and most of all a safe experience for all of our customers.
Safety at all times is the most important concern for us here at Offroad Vietnam. For full-package motorcycle tours, we will furnish our riders from A to Z with all the necessary protective safety devices and equipment. Everything you need to have a professional and safe motorbike experience will be provided.
On the other hand, we would welcome you to bring your own riding gear. In Vietnam, we have a very limited size selection and may not have your sizes.

LUGGAGE RACK ON OUR BIKES
From early 2009, we didn’t use saddle bags as before because it’s very difficult to ride through towns on the road (crazy traffic!). In addition, we designed special luggage racks for bikes and with these racks, you can bring a medium size bags of up to 15kg (GL160) and 20kg (XL125 and Baja XR250). Below are the pictures of the racks.

SAFETY MOTORBIKE RIDING GEAR
On-road apparel may also be suitable for casual off-road riding. However, if you plan on any serious off-road riding you will need more serious off-road gear. In addition to your helmet and eye protection, we recommend off-road motorcycle boots and gloves, riding trousers with knee and hip pads (or knee pads), a jersey with elbow pads (or elbow pads), and also a chest/shoulder protector.
Riding gear is available at 3$US/person/day. This is for a typical set that includes an HJC 3/4 helmet, a pair of Scoyco fingerless gloves and knee and elbow protection pads which you can see below.

Your helmet is your most important piece of riding gear because it offers the best protection against head injuries. In fact, a helmet should fit your head comfortably and securely. In general, a bright-coloured helmet can make you more noticeable in traffic, as can reflective strips.
An open-face helmet offers some protection, but a full-face crash helmet offers much more. Always wear a face shield or goggles to protect your eyes and help your vision.
