The Army & Air Force Exchange Service knows that safety is no accident; that’s why the Exchange is committed to providing a wide selection of Personal Protective Equipment, which could make the difference between life and death for military motorcyclists.

According to Army and Air Force safety centers, 65 Soldiers and Airmen lost their lives in motorcycle accidents in fiscal year 2012.

“Riding with the right safety equipment is extremely important,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Adviser Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson. “That’s why our motorcycle safety gear consists of sturdy helmets, gloves, vests and more, all designed to increase visibility and help protect riders.”

The Exchange PPE includes high-quality motorcycle gear and an assortment of reflective products. Safety gear along with skills learned in motorcycle safety training classes combine to increase survival and prevent injuries.

Motorcycle riders can browse the Exchange’s PPE selection in store or online at www.shopmyexchange.com.
