Ride Empowered is a one woman owned small business that brings focus to the needs of women motorcyclists and enthusiasts by bringing as many options for riding gear and apparel into one location. I strive to provide recognized brand names as well as new brands that I feel have something unique to offer whether that be exceptional quality or a new style. Although Ride Empowered is female focused it is not female only. I also strive to suit my customers’ men and children.
As a woman, mother of three, and working professional, I understand the need for affordability, convenience, as well as the need for a wide variety of sizes and styles. The motorcycle industry is saturated with options for the slim and trim, but it’s quite a bit more challenging finding a good fit if you’re a plus size or have other sizing needs; such as, tall, petite, wide feet, wide calves, etc. This is where I come in. I spend a great deal of my time weeding through all the products on the market to find items that will help meet these needs. What I hope to accomplish in the long run is helping the industry recognize that women riders, who are the fastest growing demographic in the motorcycle riding community, need more options for a proper fit, and that it isn’t a fashion issue. It’s both a safety and an equality issue. Proper fitting gear saves lives. Men have several options for tall sizes, plus sizes, wide feet, etc., and so should women. As you look through the website and online store feel free to take note of your own ideas and suggestions and pass them along to me. Many of the products I carry were suggestions brought to me by my friends and customers.
Thank you for your support!
