Ladies, here it is….a cool looking collection of motorcycle gear made specifically for you. The Speed & Strength Wicked Garden Collection is comprised of a full face helmet, a half helmet, a textile vest, mesh/textile gloves and motorcycle riding tennis shoes. Check out the slideshow of pictures, read the brief overview of each piece and then you can check out all the video’s for a more in-depth review.

As far as brain buckets, you have a choice of a full face or a half helmet, depending on which suits your fancy. The full face, Speed & Strength SS1300 Wicked Garden Helmet, comes with an awesome graphic, in two very cool colorways. A bright purple, pink, light blue, white and black design that features venus fly traps with skulls or the more laid back version, which features the same artwork, but is all done in black, white & silver. DOT and ECE approved, this Thermo-Poly Alloy shell is lightweight while being protective. Equipped with several vents, a removable/washable/moisture wicking “Cool Core” liner, the “Lock-n-Load” rapid conversion shield replacement system and a quick release chin strap, you’ll be all set to cruise in comfort and style.

For hot days or those who just prefer a half helmet, you can get the same colorful purple/pink artwork on the Speed & Strength SS300 Wicked Garden Half Helmet. Constructed of the same DOT approved Thermo-Poly Alloy material, you will be protected in this lightweight lid, which comes with a three snap shorty visor, removable ear pads and a double D-ring chin strap.

Speaking of protection, we can also offer you a little of that in the Speed & Strength Wicked Garden Textile/Leather Vest. Now usually you wouldn’t think a vest would offer much protection, but with the removable Vault CE approved spine protector provided in this motorcycle vest, you can get a little protection if you happen to go down. Sporting both textile and leather materials, a soft mesh liner and reflective trim you’ll also stay comfortable while riding. Best of all, this vest offers great adjustability with double velcro straps along the sides and vertical expansion zippers on the lower back to give you some flexibility while in riding position. A few sparkly rhinestones and cute patches top off this great ladies riding vest and as an added bonus the liner zips open so you can get to the inside back to add your own patches.

For summer riding, a nice pair of mesh/textile gloves are great to have, especially if they match the rest of your riding gear. So check out the Speed & Strength Wicked Garden Womens Gloves. The mesh allows you to get some cool air flowing thru them on those warm days and the synthetic palm offers abrasion resistance just in case you need it. A  hook and loop closure keeps them snug on your wrist and not only can you pick from the same two colors that are available on the full face helmet, there’s also a red/grey/white version, in case you want to switch it up a bit.

To top off your matching womens motorcycle gear, lets take a look at something for your feet. Now most ladies like to ride in boots for protection but vendors are starting to realize we like our comfy tennis shoes and with proper construction, they can be just as safe as wearing boots. These cool Speed & Strength Wicked Garden Leather Moto Shoes are high top styled tennis shoes that have integrated internal heel, toe & ankle reinforcements, external PU protectors and toe shift pads. With an anti-slip sole, perforated leather and a strap to hold your laces down, you can be safe as well as comfortable in these great ladies riding shoes.

There you have it ladies, a cool, colorful collection of motorcycle gear made especially with you in mind. Check out all the videos & pictures and let us know what you think.
