Essential Motocross Gear List - 2

What you should be kitting yourself out with

2. Boots

The best motocross boots on the market will:

  • Absorb impacts when you land from jumps
  • Protect you from roost (the dirt and rocks being thrown from the rear wheel of other bikes)
  • Protect your feet from the sharp teeth on the foot pegs
  • Stop you twisting or breaking your ankles

There’s no doubt the most renowned brand worldwide for motocross boots is Alpinestars. I’ve had everything from their Tech 6 to the Tech 8 and Tech 10, and they’ve all been great boots.

However, the best motocross boots I’ve ever owned were a pair of SIDI Crossfires; the hinged ankle offered lots of flexibility, but they were lightweight and extremely supportive.

A couple of brands worth noting (asides from Alpinestars and SIDI) include: Answer, Axo, Fly Racing, Forma, Fox Racing, Gaerne, O’Neal, TCX and Thor.
