The Best Places to Shop for Women's Motorcycle Gear

Updated: Oct 3, 2023

Shopping for motorcycle gear has become an exciting pastime for me, and I'm thrilled to see an increasing number of companies specializing in this field emerging everywhere.

I firmly believe in the principle of ATGATT (All The Gear, All The Time), a concept you'll likely encounter during your motorcycle training. While the legal requirement in the UK is to wear an ECE-approved helmet while riding, I strongly encourage practicing ATGATT every time you get on your bike. This means wearing not only a helmet but also protective jackets, boots, gloves, and trousers.

While it might seem bothersome to put on the whole shabang for a quick trip to the shops, proper protective gear significantly reduces the risk of serious injury in the event of an accident. Even at slow speeds, a crash in regular jeans could leave your bare legs exposed to road abrasion - definitely not a pleasant experience!

To understand what you need and why you need it, I recommend watching FortNine's video on the best beginner motorcycle gear.

Now, let's dive into the fun part: where to shop for women's motorcycle gear.


When I discovered the MotoGirl website, I felt like I hit the jackpot. As a plus-sized rider, I had been struggling to find protective trousers that fit well. MotoGirl, a UK-based brand dedicated to women's motorcycle gear, solved my sizing issues. Their family-run business focuses on creating purpose-made motorcycling clothing for women.

Their customer service is excellent, and they offer quick and free delivery for purchases over £100. What's even better is that their products are of amazing quality and offer high-level protection. Personally, I prefer motorcycle gear that looks like normal clothing while providing top-notch safety, and MotoGirl excels in this area.

I had been searching for protective leggings and found them on their website. These ribbed knee leggings are a bestseller for a reason. Available in thirteen different sizes and three lengths, they accommodate various body types. Made from comfortable and abrasion-resistant stretchy material, they're easy to put on and take off. The CE-Approved Level 2 knee and hip protectors are removable for washing. With features like an extra-high waist, functional pockets, and a figure-hugging fit, these leggings are a 10/10 product. You can find them here.

MotoGirl offers a wide range of products, including jackets, jeans, waterproofs, dungarees, and more, available in different colors and styles. Check them out; you won't be disappointed!

Ride and Defy

Sick of stereotypical 'girly' motorcycle gear, Ride and Defy decided to offer stylish motorcycle gear without the glitter, flowers, and pink fabrics. Founded by like-minded motorbike and action sports enthusiasts, they collaborated with Project Eighty Three to create a shop in Newquay that's a must-visit.

Their shop feels like a slice of heaven, complete with chesterfield sofas, a secret garden, and fresh coffee. It's the perfect spot to meet up with fellow riders before or after a ride. They even offer lockers to store your helmet and gear if you decide to visit the nearby beach on foot.

Ride and Defy stock clothing from brands like Eudoxie, Holy Freedom, 78 Motor Co, Oily Rag, and MotoGirl, along with a selection of casual clothing and accessories. It's a fantastic place to find gifts for female riders.

They also offer membership packages that provide priority access to Project Eighty-Three events, along with in-store and online discounts. Check out their website and Instagram feed to explore their collection.
