5 Must Have MX Safety Apparel Every Dirt Bike Rider Should Wear
The first thing you need to do is find the right safety apparel for your needs. These safety apparel should be comfortable, durable, and easy to maintain. You’ll also want to make sure that the gear fits well. This means it is not too tight or loose.
So what are these MX safety apparel you should alway wear?
Quality and Correctly Fitted MX Helmets
The number one safety precaution to take when riding anything is the wearing of a quality, correctly fitted helmet, which should be replaced after any significant crash. This is equally as important no matter which type of off-road vehicle you ride, may it be a dirt bike, quad, UTV or Kart. Your head is the most important part of your body and even a seemingly small, unprotected impact can be life-threatening so a quality helmet is essential.
MX Safety Boots
Getting ready to hit the trails with your dirt bike or quad, UTV or Kart? Make sure that you have all of the right gear before heading out on an adventure. If one doesn’t already know, it’s important to keep safe first when doing any kind of off-road driving. This includes wearing proper footwear like a good pair of motocross (MX) boots. Afterall, even an entry-level pair of boots can save fractured ankles, damaged ligaments and worse.
Safety boots are an essential piece of equipment when riding or driving a dirt bike. They protect your feet from rocks, sticks and other debris that can cause injury. There are several different types of safety boots on the market for you to choose from. But, you’ll want to make sure they fit well and aren’t too tight around the ankle where it could get stuck in the shifter if you crash while riding a dirt bike. The toe box will need to be wide enough so that there is no pressure placed on your toes when cornering at high speeds, but not so wide that they let dirt in when traversing rough terrains.
MX chest protector (body armour)
Do you like to go mudding? Are you an adventure seeker and love going on road trips with your friends or family?
When it comes to dirt biking, nothing is more important than safety. A chest protector is a crucial piece of equipment for any biker looking to protect themselves while riding on the trails. I know what you’re thinking – how can I choose the right one? Well, fortunately for you, we have several high quality MX chest protectors for you to choose from.
When you’re out on the trail, it’s important to have the right equipment. Gloves are one of those key pieces of gear that can make or break your experience. If they don’t fit well or aren’t made for what you use them for, they won’t be comfortable and will hinder your riding abilities. So how do you choose? It all comes down to knowing exactly what kind of gloves are best suited for each situation.
We’ll break down the basics of what makes a good glove and tell you what my favorite pair is. There are three main types of MX gloves: full-fingered, half-finger, and open palm. Each has their own pros and cons so it’s up to your preference as well as your riding style. Full fingered gloves offer the most protection but they can be hot in warmer weather. Half finger gloves give more airflow around the hands but typically don’t offer quite as much protection or durability (they’re also not allowed at every race). Open palm gloves provide great ventilation but very little protection.
