The type of BMX protective gear you need depends upon what kind of riding you'll be doing. Are you racing? We'll outfit racers with more protection than you would wear for street and trick riding.
Start building your outfit in this order. Add other pieces to suit your protective needs (scroll up to view all).
A properly certified and fitting is the most essential piece of BMX protective gear. Head injuries are nothing to fool around with. No matter what type of BMX riding you do, a good quality BMX helmet is a must. You may or may not need a full-face BMX helmet.
From our perspective, the second most important piece of BMX protective gear is a good pair of BMX gloves. When you crash, your hands will lead the way as you naturally reach out to break your fall. As a result, your hands and wrists are at risk of abrasions, cuts, and bruises.
If your BMX riding goes beyond noodling around in the driveway to racing, vert,dirt jumping, or any tricks where you're going airborne, then you'll want to consider BMX body armor or BMX chest protector to prevent injuries to your torso, back, and shoulders.
Keep your rear, hips, and thighs from getting hurt while you ride (and when you fall) with a pair of padded shorts for BMX.
Although they may not be as serious as a head injury, BMX injuries to your knees and elbows are no fun. Bmx knee and elbow pads are used across disciplines--racing, vert, freestyle, or street.
If you compete in BMX racing, you should strongly consider investing in BMX neck protection.
