Mistakes that you shouldn’t make while purchasing your dirt bike gear

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Are you a new bike rider who’s still honing up the master skills? If yes, then buying a dirt bike gear would seem puzzling. And if you make the wrong choice, it will cost both on your health and wallet. New riders always get enthused about their biking gears. They purchase the same without much research and knowledge and make mistakes.

Wondering what these mistakes could be? If yes, there are few crucial mistakes to avoid when you are purchasing your new dirt bike gear.

  • When you don’t buy your boots

It is one of the most prominent mistakes that new riders make. They get excited about the biking pants and jerseys, but they forget the protective gear. The bike gears are customized for motocross, and the bike riders must not overlook purchasing the same. The security needs to be a primary consideration here. Helmets are always the first choice. But spending on costly race kits and not boots is a mistake. 

The boots provide the much-required support that is needed to tackle the unexpected twists and turns on the journey. No rider would want to come back with a broken ankle. This risk reduces with the usage of apt protection.

Your boots don’t have to be costly. But it is essential for the shoes to provide you with ample security. To amp up the safety in your knee or leg, buying knee braces along with boots is also essential, which is often overlooked by the riders. To most, it might appear as a gear to wear post an injury, but it is a gear that helps in preventing the wound from taking place.

  • A helmet that has a poor fit

An ill-fitting helmet is one of the biggest Dirt Bike Gearmistakesthat you can make. Often there are discounts for helmets with a poor fit. And some riders often opt-in for it thinking that they will fit into the size gradually. Wearing a helmet with the correct size is essential. Manufacturers create helmets with the objective of providing security to the rider. Some riders think that it’s safe riding without a lid. But riding your bike wearing a helmet that is either too tight or loose, will be both uncomfortable and unsafe.

When your helmet is very loose, there will be a gap that will make your head to move unfavorably. On the other hand, if the helmet is too tight, it will be painful as you might get headaches during and after the ride. It can also strain your forehead. There will be an increased risk of biting your tongue and cheek during crashing. It will be uncomfortable with pressure points all through. If you are purchasing your helmet online, there are size details that you can check out thoroughly and then place your order.

  • Not choosing the apt gear for your discipline

Selecting an apparatus that fits your biking discipline sometimes gets overlooked.  Whereas the correct bike gear can be life-saving! If you happen to be a motocross racer, it is essential to purchase a lightweight bike gear that is ventilated well to tackle the long riding sessions. There are tough biking rides where you will have to endure the brushing by the tree limbs, making hill climbs, falling on the rocks and the like. For this, you need to be in the right biking gear.

There are biking gears fit for this that ensure longevity and durability. Though these dirt bike riding gears might lack ventilation features, the correct bike gear provides you have a comfortable journey. Some riders might question the reason for purchasing motocross specific equipment if that’s less durable and more expensive. The motocross gears will be the most comfortable gear that you can buy. The new age moisture-wicking, lightweight materials, and breathability are perfect for a hot summer day.

  • Purchasing a biking gear that doesn’t fit you at all

There are times when we come across riders wearing gears with an improper fit! If you want to avert this mistake, consider a few vital factors and make the right selection. When it is about selecting the correct biking pants, the leg length, waist size as well as the knee room is three primary factors that you need take care. If the waist size is very tight, the rider will experience extreme discomfort while riding. On the other hand, having a waist size that is very loose can act as a significant distraction. The rider will be conscious of his improper fitting pants and won’t be able to focus on the ride.

Today, several brands provide a mix of adjustment features which fine-tune the apt fit. It’s crucial that the legs match the waist as well. The pants that are very long will come in the way of your boots. It will become cumbersome during the ride. Some brands provide short and regular pants so that the pant length doesn’t pose any discomfort to your pant, waist size and the bike ride.

Also when the rider wears a knee pad or knee brace, it’s imperative to make the pant selection in a way so that there’s enough room space. Fitting should not be an issue here. In case the pants are slightly or more tightly close to the knee region, then it will restrict the movement capacity and will result in unease while seating. Also selecting the correct jersey is an easy task! Just in case you have decided to sport a chest protector underneath your gear, make sure that there’s ample space to have the shirt tucked in. Also, let the sleeves be short so that it doesn’t come in the way of your grip. 

However, one of the worst errors that you can make when you are buying a dirt bike gear as a beginner is buying an entirely wrong and uncomfortable bike gear. Some riders steer clear from wearing protection since it might be slightly uncomfortable. Hence, it is essential to be aware of the mistakes you might unknowingly make while selecting the bike ride gear. Exercise caution, ensure safety and choose the best bike gear that fits you well. Today, there are ample choices available. Search and don’t settle until you get the best fit.
