Kids Motocross Gear

When shopping for youth motocross gear two things are extremely important, sizing and adequate protection. In order to find the right protective gear for children, you need to walk past the adult MX protective gear and head to the youth section. Sure you’ll find jerseys, pants, chest protectors, MX helmets and knee guards in small or extra small sizes in the adult section but unless your kid is the size of a small adult that gear won’t fit properly. Putting gear intended for adults on children will often fit too loosely and will be too bulky or heavy which can significantly interfere with a child’s ability to safely and properly handle a dirt bike or ATV.

Companies like Fox Racing, Leatt, and Thor have put extensive research into identifying the right sizing for their protective gear to fit small children. These items will provide a tight fit without being too restrictive or uncomfortable. Proper youth motocross gear will cover the areas it’s intended to protect without shifting around or drooping. The key pieces of youth MX gear you should consider are a properly fitting kid’s dirt bike helmet, youth MX boots, goggles, gloves, dirt bike pants, a motocross jersey, and a chest protector. You’ll find that companies like Fly Racing, O’Neal, and Answer Racing have a myriad of youth goggles, helmets, boots and chest protectors specifically designed to fit young riders. These key pieces will provide adequate protection. However, if you want even more protection you can consider getting some youth knee guards and elbow guards.
