Winter in the UAE may not be as harsh as in other regions, but it still brings cooler temperatures that require proper gear for off-road riders. Whether you’re exploring the desert trails or taking on the mountain paths, XBYKE has the essential gear to keep you warm and comfortable during the winter months. Here’s a guide to the must-have items for your winter off-road adventures in the UAE.

1. Helmet Venting

  • Stay Warm with Proper Venting: Off-road helmets usually come with ventilation to keep your head cool. However, during the winter months, you might want to tape up the intake vents located at the front of the helmet to keep your head warm. This simple tip can be easily reversed when needed.

2. Goggles

  • Anti-Fog Lenses: Consider goggles like the Oakley O-Frame 2.0 Pro, available at XBYKE, with an anti-fog lens to maintain clear vision. Avoid washing the lens with water or placing it over the chin-guard to prevent ruining the lens.
  • Dual Goggle Lens: For wet and cold conditions, a dual-lens like the Oakley Dual Goggle Lens can be a great addition to your gear.

3. Neck Warmer

  • Protection from Wind and Rain: A lightweight neck scarf like a Buff can keep wind, rain, and hail from affecting your face and neck. It’s a simple yet effective piece of gear for winter riding.

4. Jackets

  • Versatile Off-Road Jackets: Look for jackets like the Alpinestars Venture R Jacket with ventilation zippers and zip-off sleeves for adaptability.
  • Rain Jacket: A wind and waterproof jacket like the Scott Rain Jacket can keep you dry and warm. It’s lightweight and easy to store in a backpack.

5. Gloves

  • Keep Your Hands Warm: Consider gloves like the Scott 350 Neoprene, essentially wetsuits for your hands, to protect against rain and snow.

6. Heated Riding Gear

  • Ultimate Warmth: Products like the Venture Heated Jacket can be plugged directly into your bike’s battery, providing heated panels to keep you warm.
