Knee Guards for Small Children


When it comes to knee guards, I found that an adult size elbow guard makes a great substitute for small children. We were able to save a weekend of riding by having my six year old son wear my size medium Fox Titans on his knees. He rode for hours over the course of two days with no comfort issues, and the smaller cups actually provided a better fit for his diminutive legs. The forearm and upper arm straps do a good job of keeping the guards in place, and they fit easily into his boots. His other knee guards, which were the smallest size available, were still a bit too big. It was difficult to get the top of the boot to completely close around them, and they just did not fit well.

If you decide to try this idea, make sure the knee guards are the style that have detachable, wrap around straps - these can be adjusted to fit comfortably without cutting off circulation. I would be reluctant to try this with the pullover sleeve type elbow guard as they cannot be adjusted, and would have to fit perfectly in order to be comfortable.

      As I'm closing in on the last things I need for my riding gear I'm doubting what I actually would need. As a newbie I'll be just doing single track most of the time. 
      I'm looking to either combine an Alpinestars A1+ or Bionic Chest Protector with a BNS PRO neck brace or Leatt 4.5 with a GPX 3.5 neck brace. 
      It's a tough decision because I'm obviously unsure how my experiences will be.

      Is the rib protection a must? What made you lean to the gear you now have? 
      Enjoy your rides! 🤘

      Anyone have experience with ixs Hammer elbow guards? 
      I'm looking for something that protects elbow and forearm but isn't too bulky or skimpy.  These look like the right balance of protection, coverage and mobility. 
      3 strap fastening should provide nice secure/adjustable fit, preventing sliding down.

      I am currently completing my degree project at Autoliv in Sweden, where I will, among other things, 
      find out what wishes/requirements the active in Enduro and Motocross have on protective equipment.
      Therefore, I have produced a survey on safety protection for the drivers in the relevant branches.
      I would appreciate if you who train or compete in any of the disciplines Enduro and Motocross answer the survey.
      Anyone who practices any of the branches is welcome to participate, regardless of level!
      The survey can be found here: https://forms.gle/gCnQLVQnsyvxoxiu8

      Has anybody used the Fox Racing Raptor Vest Roost Deflector for under the jersey? Should I just get the Alpinestars Bionic Roost Deflector its CE level 1 for shoulders, front, and back and the fox chest protector is CE level 2 for front and back but not the shoulders. I want an under the jersey chest protector that has the most protection but isn't to bulky.

      I’m struggling to grip with my knees on my dirtbike. Either my jeans or my knee pads are what touches the bike, and they just slip, making it difficult to accelerate and hill climb without getting thrown around. I’ve been thinking of getting rubber grip tape, and this has good reviews. What do you guys think? I ride a 2001 rm125 and was thinking id put it on my gas tank, frame rails, and maybe my air box.
      Or this
