Motocross bikes have a history of success in worldwide bike racing from all levels of MX to Supercross and the Olympics and is rapidly growing in popularity. As you would expect, the best motocross gear is always a hot topic of debate.
Let’s look at some of the top Motocross gear brands so you can be sure to have the best gear available to you this season.
When we talk about the best motocross gear brands we are looking between your two main categories of gear.
These will be what you wear whilst riding (i.e. your full-face helmet, boots, jersey and gloves, pants) and what you ride around the track on (i.e. your bike). Of course there’s much more we can look at but those are the main two areas. Let’s dive right in.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Is Fox a good brand?
Fox is one of the top motocross gear brands out there. Their technology has been at the forefront of the sport for years and their products are engineered to perform better and last longer than the competition’s. Their gear appeals to an older demographic and is rarely found at races on the likes of kids or teenagers.
Fox is known for making great gear that supports the sport’s pros for years of intense competition. Their gear is top-quality and often comes with great warranties. However, if you’re new to the sport or just enjoy it casually, it might be better to invest in a more affordable but still performance-oriented brand.
Is JT Racing still in business?
JT Racing has been producing motorcycle gear since the 70’s. The brand has always been known for its innovative designs and their ability to combine style and comfort. They’re one of the first companies to introduce Kevlar into their motorcycle gear. Because of their focus on design and innovation, JT Racing has also become the preferred rougher gear brand for two-time World Superbike Champion Carl Fogarty.
Today, JT Racing continues to produce innovative products that are designed to be comfortable and lightweight, while at the same time offering style that’s similar to urban apparel. The quality and durability of their products are top notch.
What are the best dirt bike gloves?
Dirt bike gloves should be strong, snug, and durable, but they should still be flexible and comfortable. You'll want to avoid bulky gloves, as they will slow you down and interfere with your grip.
The best motocross gloves are made with a combination of neoprene, leather, and other materials. We would recommend them mostly for the summer months, as they can quickly sap down your body temperature in hot weather.
You'll probably only need a pair of gloves for every two pair of boots, and you may not need to buy them separately. Most reputable dirt bike manufacturers will throw in a set of gloves with their product packages.
What do pro motocross riders wear?
One of the biggest decisions an MX racer has to make is what brand of bike parts, gear and accessories to buy. There are a lot of choices out there, and also a lot of marketing trying to convince you to buy their brand and make it look like it's all you need to make it to the top. We've done the hard work for you by reviewing the top brands and giving you a comprehensive set of our top recommendations.
