To get you ready for your 2021 riding season, we have compiled a list of BDR tested and approved gear and apparel.
New for 2021 Wolfman Luggageintroduced the Zip-R Bags WP, their easy zippered access Rolie bags, and the Tank Pannier Base WP – offering carrying versatility for the front of your bike. Use the Tank Pannier Base WP in place of a tank bag with Rolie Bags or Zip-R Bags, or mount the Wolf Bottle Holster WP to carry water. More new products and details are at wolfmanluggage.com.
KLIM has redesigned their Traverse suit to meet the demands of dual-sport riding – focusing on increased comfort, reduced bulk, and full weather protection.
And the Baja S4 suit is for hot weather riding, with extensive stretch zones and durable nylon mesh for unrestricted airflow. Ceramic-plated Superfabric® provides robust on-road protection. Paired with the waterproof Enduro S4, the Baja S4 kit is the ultimate in adventure gear versatility.
Touratech has taken a fresh approach to protecting both the rider’s hands and the bike’s critical controls with Defensa Handguards. Engineered tough with a forged aircraft-grade aluminum exoskeleton and integrated plastic shields – its durable protection for rider and levers. The structure provides plenty of clearance for stock or aftermarket levers, and offers an uninhibited range of motion.
Mosko Moto‘s “less is more” approach to ADV is evident in their Rak Pullover – a riding jacket that accomplishes its mission with the least features. This light, durable, waterproof 3-layer outer shell keeps you dry all-day when riding in the rain, it packs small when not in use, and it’s built to last. The Rak, which comes from ‘Anorak,’ is the ultimate in simplicity!
Butler’s BDR-Series Collection highlights the official Backcountry Discovery Routes taking you off-road through some of the most spectacular scenery in the country.
These maps are an essential part of a successful BDR experience, providing detailed information on each section of the route. All 10 existing routes are included, so your bucket list will be full for at least a decade!
The new REV’IT! DIRT Series is a super lightweight, comfortable, and protective lineup of CE-certified products inspired by the utility and functionality of modern outdoor gear.

RoadTech Tool Kits from CruzTOOLS are perfect for trailside repairs and adjustments while riding BDRs. Professional grade, bike-specific versions for most ADV motorcycles give you everything you need and nothing you don’t to resolve common mechanical ‘situations’ on the road And they are backed with a lifetime guarantee – ‘no questions asked’.
If you’re on the market for new ADV tires, look no further than the new Tractionator RallZ from Motoz Tires, the Official Tire of the upcoming WYBDR expedition. Its unique tread block pattern offers both exceptional traction in the dirt, and relatively long life span thanks to a self-protecting design. The tire’s carcass is tougher than most ADV tires which helps reduce the possibility of punctures on the trail. A variety of tube and tubeless sizes available through Pacific Powersports.
Redesigned for 2021 with an emphasis on increasing waterproofness, Giant Loop‘s new Fandango maintains its rider friendly features, including a low-profile shape that stays out of the way, a pliable yet rugged structure, quick, easy access to fuel fill, plus an additional two liters of packable space versus its smaller cousin, the Diablo Tank Bag. This sleek, bulletproof, waterproof, adventure-ready tank bag is for those who want to ride fast and far with zero distractions.
