Motorcycle racing is a sport that requires a very specialized family of equipment and clothing if the rider is to experience a relatively safe and comfortable riding experience. Gloves, boots, pants and other items are specially designed to meet the extreme condition of motocross racing. One company that has been producing these products for a long time, over thirty years in fact is Fox Racing.In the early years of motocross racing, the racer’s riding gear was being developed with only functionality, comfort, and safety in mind. Preventing the injuries that are still all too common in motorcycle racing were the main concern of the clothing designers back then. Fashion appeal was not a consideration back in the days of old, but things have changed. These days, the modern motocross racer is concerned with the appearance of his gear nearly as much as he is with the functionality and safety advantages of it. Fox Racing has responded to this increased demand for style with a new focus on fashion and eye appeal. Their new line of clothing and accessories reflects a commitment to making their products stylish and attractive. They produce products for men, women and children, and are worn by people who have never even sat on a motorcycle before. These rugged, long lasting products are being worn in areas that were once the domain of designer jeans and trendy polo shirts.Boots, gloves, jerseys & pants are just a few of the newly chic items that Fox Racing manufactures. Socks, helmets, hats, and jackets are also a part of their product line that is being worn increasingly by the general public.In addition to making some of the highest quality equipment in the industry, Fox Racing has also contributed significantly to the growth in popularity of motocross as a spectator sport. They have sponsored several noteworthy riders, including Jeremy McGrath and Ricky Carmichael, both of whom are legends in the history of motocross. In addition, they also work closely with their stable of pro-riders to producing constantly evolving improvements riding gear technology. If the past is any indication of what the future holds, we can expect many more exciting and innovative ideas from this forward thinking, progressive American company.Another company that is cashing in on the popularity of sports clothing and accessories as fashion items is RVCA (pronounced: RUCA) clothing. Once a producer of mainly work related, utility clothing, many of their products today are designed with fashion as their primary focus. RVCA is especially dominant in the California surfing scene, which is no surprise as they are located in Costa Mesa, CA.In addition to surfing attire, RVCA produces a full line of wallets, hats, and other accessories. A major part of their corporate philosophy is the support and development of arts related to skateboarding and surfing. RVCA is a really cool company, founded by really cool guys.
