At SIP Scootershop, there is a huge range of clothing to help you stay safe and stylish on the road. In our online shop you will find a wide range of trousers, jackets, gloves, protective clothing as well as shoes, socks and scarves. If you would like personal advice and to try on the garments on site, visit our flagship store in Landsberg. There you will not only receive expert advice, but also have the opportunity to convince yourself of the quality and comfort of our products.

Trousers for scooters or motorbikes

For a long time, motorcyclists and scooter riders were severely limited in their choice of trousers: Only leather or textile trousers were available and motorbike jeans were rare and visually unappealing. Women in particular had difficulty finding suitable and safe trousers. But in recent years, things have changed in this area. Those who shun the heavy and uncomfortable leather trousers or reject the unsightly textile trousers can now fall back on motorbike jeans. These not only convince with their appealing look, but also offer excellent protection.

It is of utmost importance to always keep in mind that scooter and motorbike riders have no crumple zone whatsoever. While a leather suit undoubtedly offers optimal protection, there is still an alternative in classic denim style. Our jeans for men and women have successfully passed all CE tests and still offer a trendy, urban look. For all those who commute to work on a two-wheeler, for example, and don't want to carry a change of clothes, our jeans are the perfect choice.

When making your choice, pay attention to the level of protection and don't just go for the cheapest products. It is essential that the seams are properly finished, the protectors are secure and tight and the material has the desired tear resistance. If you go for good quality right from the start, you will save a lot of money in the long run. It is therefore worth investing in high-quality motorbike jeans.

Jackets and waistcoats for scooters and motorbikes

An adequate jacket for riding a scooter or motorbike is of paramount importance and should be considered an indispensable piece of equipment. It not only protects the arms, ribs and back, but also vital organs. A conventional jeans or leather jacket may be visually appealing, but it offers little protection. A jacket specially designed for motorcyclists, on the other hand, has essential properties thanks to high-quality materials and integrated protectors. It is abrasion and tear resistant, offers impact protection and is also wind and water repellent. CE certification also guarantees the highest safety standards.

When buying a suitable motorbike or scooter jacket, the first question is: should it be textile, overshirt or leather? Textile and overshirts are ideal for warm days, as they are light and airy and give you the feeling of being in a T-shirt. Who wants to sweat in a heavy, thick leather jacket in high temperatures and not prefer to feel the breeze on their skin? Our jackets for men and women meet all requirements in terms of material, fit and type and offer protection up to AAA level.

Gloves for scooters and motorbikes

For scooter and motorbike riders, gloves are indispensable and represent the absolute basic equipment. Just as you never leave the house without shoes, you should never get on a two-wheeler without gloves.

No serious driving instructor in Germany would put his students on a motorbike without gloves. In the event of a fall, gloves are often the first to come into contact with the road surface. It is a natural reflex to support oneself with the hands and gloves protect against injuries in this case. But even small stones or other materials that can be thrown up no longer pose a danger. Gloves also protect against cold, wet and draughts. They give you the necessary feeling of safety to control your two-wheeler safely.

We offer a wide range of gloves because everyone has different needs. Below we take a closer look at material, fit and protection. The palms, knuckles and edges of the hands need the best protection. Don't skimp on the gloves, they will be a loyal and valuable companion.

Motorbike helmets and scooter helmets

Without a suitable helmet, any ride on a scooter or motorbike becomes an unpredictable risk. Especially when riding out on a motorbike, there is no crumple zone and injuries to the head can be serious. Therefore, a scooter helmet or motorbike helmet is indispensable for every rider.

As early as 1976, the German government made helmets compulsory for drivers and passengers of motorbikes, and moped riders have also had to wear a helmet for two years - the moped helmet was born. Although cyclists are still exempt from this regulation, wearing a helmet is explicitly recommended. But helmets are not only important for safety, they are also an expression of personal style. There are a variety of helmets, visors, goggles and accessories for motorbikes and scooters that not only protect, but can also enhance your appearance.

In our blog on helmet advice, we have once again summarised everything to help you find the right motorbike and scooter helmet.

Shoes and socks for motorbike and scooter

No more changing shoes after getting off the bike! Our shoes for motorcyclists and scooter riders are the perfect combination of safety and style. The manufacturers REV'IT! and JOHN DOE have integrated all the necessary safety features into their shoes without sacrificing fashionable elements. Whether you prefer a casual or high-fashion look, you'll find it here. Our shoes combine the comfort of a sneaker with the safety of a motorbike boot.

The latest generation of shoes not only fulfils the basic function of protecting the feet, but also emphasises the wearer's individual style. With a variety of colours, materials and models, it is no longer necessary to choose between a shoe for the scooter or for leisure. These shoes offer the perfect combination of functionality and fashion sense. All shoes are certified according to CE EN 13634 and may even be worn in the driving school for two-wheelers.

In addition to shoes, we offer socks from DEUS or from our own knitting mill SIP PERFORMANCE. The cheerful socks with Vespa motifs are available in many different colours and sizes. With your trousers or shorts rolled up, they become a real eye-catcher.
