With Christmas approaching, finding a perfect motocross Christmas gift might be a tricky time in your life. You might think – hey, he already has everything needed for a great dirt bike experience, what more could he need? Before you go crazy and reach out to get some ridiculously pricey stuff like an exhaust from Akrapovic (without knowing if your rider actually needs it), take a deep breath and go through our motocross Christmas gift list. These are safe and sound options carefully handpicked by OMX Graphics team – we as motocross enthusiasts would love to see these gifts under our Christmas trees as well.
We know, we know – the person you’re buying for probably already has at least one decent set of riding gloves. So why bother? Believe us, there’s nothing better than putting on a fresh pair of gloves. Plus, they wear out pretty quickly. How to find the right ones? First of all, check out their gear to determine the brand they’ve already chosen and the size they’re having (can be found on the inside cuff). A fool-proof option is Fox Racing riding gloves – that’s a motocross Christmas gift every rider would be happy to receive.
The thumb of rule is avoiding those stupidly cheap goggles you can find online – they don’t provide the ventilation needed and might not have the UV protection. That’s a complete no-no! And again, to pick the right ones you might want to check the gear they’re already using. Otherwise, 100% Strata MX goggles, Oakley O Frames or Smith Optics Fuel are few of the best models you can buy in 2019. Here’s a tip – match the color of the goggles to the helmet to make your rider look smashingly cool in the track.
Dirt Bike Graphics Kit
To make your rider feel super special, go the extra mile and choose the ultimate best gift any MX enthusiast would love to receive – a new dirt bike graphics kit! If your rider doesn’t already have a customised dirt bike graphics kit on their rides, this might be the very best gift he’ll ever receive. Also this is a great option if his or hers dirt bike needs a touch of newness – fresh MX bike decals in cool color combos will make the bike look as new. To pick the right ones, find out the brand (like Honda, Husqvarna, Kawasaki, KTM or Yamaha), model and the year of their bike and then reach out to OMX Graphics. We proudly offer dirt bike graphics kits to all the bike models out there and we will love to help you with customisation.
Dirt bikers love recording their rides and replaying the highlights, therefore this is another great option to make your rider happy. Yes, these are not the cheapest gifts but every rider on this earth would be stoked to see one under the Christmas tree. Two of the best options out there are GoPro Hero8 and Sony Action Cam.
Take a close look at the helmet they’re having right now – does it seem good and unbeaten? The truth is, the helmet should be replaced after each time it is dropped or crashed. Show that you care by doing this job by yourself and changing the helmet for them this Christmas. And again, check the brand and sizing they already use and then choose something new instead. Some of the most proven and respected models are Shift White Label MX, Fox Raxing V1, Troy Lee Designs SE4 Poly and Arai VX-Pro 4.
Have a very merry MX Christmas!
