Which MX Gear Is Right For You?

The right gear is usually going to come down to the kind of riding you like doing. Top level Supercross and Motocross riders will want the most lightweight and unrestrictive gear they can get their hands on, while offroad trail riders will be more inclined to go with a more heavy duty and durable set up so their gear isn't catching and ripping on bushes as they blast through the trails. For beginner riders who are just taking things slow, stick with a basic set of gear and gloves and invest that money into a decent set of boots and helmet. Unless you're riding at some serious speeds, your price point friendly motocross gear will usually do the trick. Unless of course you just want to look stylish as hell, in which case go ahead and grab yourself some premium stuff! It's not about how fast you go, it's about how good you look right?


There's a huge number of things that will determine whether your motocross gear is just right for you, and we've tried to touch on them all throughout this guide as much as we can. Of course, there's one BIG aspect to it that we're yet to mention, and it's probably the most important of them all - the size! At the end of the day, all the technological features, protective qualities and design aspects of your gear aren't going to count for much if you don't have the right size.
