Hey guys,

I'm new here to the forum. I plan on purchasing the grom as my first bike and I know nothing about gear. I live in Texas and the summers are brutal around 90-100F and 80-90% humidity.

What kind of gear(helmet,jacket,pants,gloves) would you recommend. Thanks

Texas here too !

I wear helmet, Vanson Vent Max jacket, N2 Perforated leather gloves, work boots, jeans on my daily commute to/from work

Ya it's still hot but everything is protected except my legs
Jeans will last about 2 seconds if I crash :(

It was 95 the last whole week here in Chicago too. Besides mesh jacket, I really felt in love with underarmor tech shirt. It literally dry all the sweat within 2 minutes when you start moving. I also have a cooling vest when it 100+.

I also live in Texas, you have to kind of pick and choose your gear. I personally wear a breathable synthetic jacket, padded fingerless gloves, denim jeans, leather boots and a vented close face helmet for long rides during the summer. I go without the jacket for short rides at low speeds due to the lack of wind.
