Mother’s Day is just a few days away. Have you gotten something special for your mom? If not, why not give a gift that will guarantee hours of fun riding?
Below, we’ve prepared a short list of some useful, stylish, and practical gifts that will enhance the feel-good benefits of riding motorcycles.
1) Phone mount: Intuitive Cube X-Guard Mirror Mount A+ (P2,450)
Phone mounts are lifesavers when you have to go where you’ve never gone before. Secure your smartphone into place, and suddenly, the bike comes with the convenient navigation of Google Maps or Waze.
This Intuitive Cube phone mount installs into the bolt for your side mirror. Made of high-quality 6061 aluminum, the mount is light as well as rust- and corrosion-resistant. It’s also highly adjustable and offers a wide viewing angle, so the rider can position their screen however they see fit.
Pair the mount with the brand’s universal holder for a secure and rigid way to give any scooter or motorcycle a tech boost.
2) Gloves: Five Gloves TFX Air (P2,200)
This summer is going to be a hot one, and riding with thick gloves in this kind of weather is uncomfortable. A pair of breathable gloves like the TFX Air are a welcome addition to any rider’s gear rotation. The gloves have a lot of ventilation thanks to a mesh top and a cooling Airprene wristband.
More ventilation doesn’t have to mean less protection, either. These gloves sport PU and foam knuckle protectors as well as TPR palm sliders for a CE Level 1 protection rating. On top of everything, the palm side is made of synthetic leather for grip and durability.
Overall, it’s a simple glove that keeps hands cool and protected in the most punishing heat.
3) Top Box: GIVI E30TN (P2,500)
With enough room for some light groceries or a small bag packed for a light weeked trip, this 30-liter GIVI top box is a gift that pays for itself many times over. It doubles the storage capacity of any bike, so there’s no need to constantly take stuff with you or get creative about strapping them down. With a top box, it goes as quickly as open, stash, and ride.
For reference, this top box can fit one full-face helmet and then some. It comes with two laser cut keys, but the rack is sold separately.
4) Backpack: Ogio No Drag Mach 1 Pack (P4,950)
Just the right size for bringing along on quick trips, the Ogio Mach 1 is a sleek and small backpack that conforms to a life on the saddle. It’s designed to conform to the body and offer as little drag as possible. But it also has enough room to double as an everyday bag for storing essential items.
The bag’s interior is padded to keep stored items safe and cushioned and can fit several gadgets at once. It has a laptop compartment for 15-inch laptops, a tablet sleeve, and space allotted for a hydration bladder. The zipper also goes all the way around, so you can lay the bag open and flat to pack or unpack.
5) Half-face helmet: SMK Cooper Ace (P2,950)
The SMK Cooper Ace is a practical helmet for everyday city riding. The half-face design makes it easy to put the lid on and take it off. Plus, there’s lots of air flow, since there’s no chin bar in the way.
The geometric design in matte grey, black, and yellow sets it apart from other helmets on the market. We like the yellow highlights, which does the double duty of increasing visibility and making the helmet pop. It also comes with a sun visor, which certainly comes in handy when riding in the middle of the day.
The helmet also offers decent safety and convenience. It comes with a thermoplastic shell lined with multi-density EPS foam. The strap is quick-release for easy adjusting, and the helmet is ECE-rated.
Mother’s Day is coming soon. Pick up any of these items at a Motoworld near you, so you can support the mom in your life in her riding adventures.
