Riding Gear To Keep You Cool
Living in Phoenix AZ it gets bloody hot here and if we want to ride in the Summer it will be over 100 degrees all the time. (I'm not complaining... I have a car with great A/C as an alternative).
With the blazing heat in mind is their any specific
riding gear that can help keep us cooler when we ride? Pants? Jackets?
The right leg roasting thigh is brutal when it's 105-110 in the shade. I'm not sure if it's any cooler to have the insulation of a riding pant between your thigh and the bike or to have a bare leg that is taking the brutal engine heat directly.
To help keep things a little cooler I'm thinking about the heat shield tips found in this thread:
But I'm hoping for some riding gear alternatives to help keep things a little more comfortable. They have heated gear... maybe there's some "cooled" riding gear I don't know about.
All tips, pics and links much appreciated.
