Best gear for trail riding?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm curious what gear you guys would suggest for trail, enduro type riding. Boots, chest, knee, elbow, neck protectors. I want to get decent quality gear, but I ain't rich either. So what are yalls suggestions? Thanks!

You don't really need trail specific gear, some companies do make enduro stuff like Fox Legion gear and Fox Instinct Offroad boots. You can start out with cheap stuff like Oneal Element boots but you'll most likely end up replacing them soon after if you ride much. I've loved my Garene SG10 boots, aren't super expensive but still quality. Fly Racing makes great gear and helmets, Bell helmets are good for the price too. Order up a few pairs of A.R.C. socks from RMATV, they're cheap and nice. I use Thor knee and elbow guards, they seem to do the job but definitely not the most protective out there.

If you have any specific questions about something go ahead but I'll list all my gear.
Helmet- Fly f2 carbon mips
Neck brace- Leatt 5.5
Chest protector- Leatt 4.5 (would recommend you get the hydra version which I didn't)
Pants/jersey- O'Neal hardware
Gloves- O'Neal hardware and element (not too important)
Knee guards- msr reflex knee shin guards (kind of bulky but not terrible and I still get a lot of bruises just above it on my thigh)
Boots- Answer Gaerne sg12 (sg12 with answer's name and special design)
