Gear is a common part of the biking hobby. Many people are fascinated as to what the greatest gear on the market is. I personally never was too into learning about gear, but it is undeniable that many bikers love learning about this stuff. The first piece of gear that I want to talk about today are biking helmets. One helmet that I want to talk about is the Giro Register MIP. (Tom’s Guide) One of the benefits that this helmet offers to people is that it is comfortable. However, one downside is that it does not have a chin protector. (Tom’s Guide) This could be a possible dealbreaker for some, but I am sure that for others they would not mind, as it makes up for it with how comfortable it is to wear. Another piece of gear that I want to talk about is the Shimano Road Shoes. (Outside Online) These shoes are also very comfortable and are also light. (Outside Online) However, I would be hesitant to actually purchase a pair of these, as they are around $425. (Outside Online) I could understand as to how some bikers would be interested in purchasing these, but for someone like me who is not that interested in biking gear, I would hold off. Lastly, another piece of biking gear that I want to talk about is backpacks. Backpacks for biking seem pretty important to me. One popular biking backpack is called the Patagonia Black Hole 25L. (Cycling News) Two good reasons as to why this backpack is so popular is that it is both durable and water-resistant. (Cycling News) I think it is great that the backpack is water-resistant. Overall, these are just three pieces of gear that some bikers think are worth the price.

I did not know that there was more gear for biking than simply just the bike. I guess it makes sense though with all the different biking people can choose to do.
