Riding a dirt bike without proper gear is one of the biggest mistakes that riders make. However, investing in one is essential not only for a comfortable ride but most importantly, for your safety.

  2. Common mistakes to avoid while shopping for a Dirt bike gear

So, read on for more information in the paragraphs that follow.

  1. Dirt Bike Gear – The components and their features

One of the biggest reasons to buy such gear is to stay safe in the event of a crash when you are taken by surprise. A full gear usually has several components as mentioned above and let us take one by one to focus on their features.

  • Face helmet

This is not an option but a necessity. So, when you buy a riding gear, do not even think of leaving this out. Just make sure that you opt for one that covers your face entirely. Remember, it is crucial to get a quality one as it is protecting your head.

A fully covered one will ensure that your jaw is protected, and so are your teeth. Thus, a fully covered face helmet comes with a jaw protector too.

  • Dirt Bike Pants

Dirt bike pants are ideal if you are riding trails or motocross. Simple jeans trouser will not suffice. And most of the people that have gone without them have spent more because they damaged a greater number of jeans than they would have spent on buying a pair of dirt pants.

Also, if you can maintain the pants well, it will stay with you for a longer period of time too.

  • Boots

Better known as dirt bike boots are a must-have too. This is because they protect not just your knees but your ankle, lower foot, and the entire leg. Riding a bike can make you susceptible to a number of injuries, some minor and some may be major too. So, do not keep any stones unturned as far as investing in a pair of boots is concerned.

There are a few aspects that you must take into account while selecting one for yourself or any of your loved ones. These are as follows-

  • Fitting-The boots must fit well, and anything ill-fitting will not serve the purpose. In fact, go for ones that comfortably fit in. In fact, you will come across many brands that sell these boots. You can compare and shop around to get a pair of them that will suit you best.

Aside from the above, check out for ergonomic features, comfort, adequate protection, and of course, must be cost-effective.

  • Dirt bike goggles

They will render protection to your eyes not just from dirt but from branches of trees when you are riding in high speed, bugs, pollen, water, and all that you encounter while riding your bike.

  • Dirt bike shirt

Riding a dirt bike will require you to have a shirt that is comfortable and fits you well. Remember, your comfort will determine how well you can ride your bike in a hassle-free manner. The shirt will offer protection against the harmful ultraviolet rays.

You might come across a wide array of such shirts from different brands. Opt for one that will suit your budget and not burn a hole in your wallet.

  1. Common mistakes to avoid while shopping for a Dirt bike gear

Moving on to the next part of the article, let us find out the common mistakes that you can avoid while buying a dirt bike gear in the paragraphs below-

  • Not investing in dirt bike boots

As mentioned above, when you talk about gear, it essentially includes all the different components, which means boots too. However, one of the main mistakes that riders make is to save money on boots. However, if you lose your feet, that will be a bigger disaster than not investing in one.

  • Wearing poorly fitted helmets

How can you risk your life by wearing a helmet that will not offer adequate protection to your head? Head is the most important part of your body, andin the event, you meet with an accident, and you do not have a helmet to safeguard your head, it can lead to brain damage and also death. Wearing an ill-fitted helmet is like not wearing one at all.

  • Compromising on gear quality

Designer gears will not make any difference if you compromise on quality and safety. If you are wearing gear that is fancy and good to look at but does not protect you when you need it the most, it is useless.

Experts always say that gear is not meant for looking good, but the primary function is to protect, and other features are secondary.

Few aspects to look out for in the individual components of the gear include the following-

  1. How well does it fit?
  2. Comfort
  3. Safety offered
  4. Quality
  5. Price
  6. Ergonomics (wherever applicable)
  7. Appropriate size

The fact that there are many brands available in the market these days make sure that you invest in one that is not a duplicate. Whatever you buy, regardless of the cost of the product, you must lay your hands on one that is original.

Buying dirt bike gear online

With the advent of innumerable virtual stores, you can sit from the comfort of your home or office to select one that will fit you right.

Compare websites, get quotes, and then zero-in on the suitable one. These days most of the websites selling such stuff have online chat facilities. So, if you have any query about a product, the online experts or assistants can clarify promptly.

So, you do not just get the best from the lot, but when you set off for a dirt bike ride, you know you are adequately protected.
