With a right and proper Rode gear, make sure that you have complete focus on your 8 second ride and Bull riding being the dangerous sport, as a rider you need full protection from head to toe! Chaps are essential when it comes to protection- they are made of thick, fine quality leather which covers the legs and thighs. Also, Chaps are a part of the costume and the riders wear it to look good. Their distinctive coloring and pattern add flair to the sport. The rider has sponsor’s logo on the chaps and so, they also become a prime marketing spot.
