Motocross Pants Jersey City NJ

Motocross fashion is no different. You never see an advertisement with a portly 38-year-old strutting his size 36 stuff in color photos. In truth, factory racers would be considered anorexic in the Vet class, but they are the fashion icons of the sport.

SixSixOne Flight Boot Jersey City NJ

A good boot must offer substantial protection, but not be too heavy or bulky. It must be flexible, yet rigid in the lateral plane. The soles must be soft enough to get traction on the footpegs, but not so soft that they wear out too quickly.

Shoei VFX-W Helmets Jersey City NJ

The VFX-W, Shoei's helmet, has features that focus on increased safety, comfort and aesthetics. Our goal was to find out if the VFX-W truly is different from Shoei's bread winner, the VFX-DT.

Pro Grip 3458 Goggles Jersey City NJ

Here we introduce the ultimate goggle for muddy and wet conditions thanks to extra-large Roll-Offs. Most SoCal racers have very little experience with racing in the rain, but when it does pour they fall back on the trusty Roll-Off system to keep their goggles clean.

Alpinestars Bionic 2 Proection Jackets Jersey City NJ

AXO Dart Boots Jersey City NJ

The new AXO Dart boot is based on their high-end Prime boot, but redesigned for maximum value at a lower price. In motocross boots, there is a $300 difference between low-end and high-end boots. All ego and status aside, many MXA test riders believe that less expensive boots are a better choice for racers looking for a lighter, sleeker and more flexible boot.

EVS Flux Chest Protectors Jersey City NJ

MXA test riders are very particular about their chest protectors. We want ample protection, but we yearn for comfort. Additionally, half of the MXA test crew also wears some sort of neck protection. Historically, chest protectors have failed to interface with neck braces (without modificcation). In our never-ending quest for a neck-brace-compliant chest protector, we put the EVS Flux to the test.

EVS Revo Underprotectors Jersey City NJ

As a company built almost solely around protective gear, EVS hates to see racers take the unprotected route. They understand that everyone doesn't want to don a full chestprotector, and they also realize that not everyone is satisfied with the protection that comes from an underprotector.

EVS Sports Ug06 Riding Shorts Jersey City NJ

The MXA test crew was skeptical of the EVS Sports UG06 riding shorts because the padding felt stiff. However, once we put them on, the pads in the tailbone, hips and thighs were barely noticeable. EVS uses an articulating “Ergo Flex” system that allows the padding to double back on itself in an accordion-style pattern.

Fox F3R Boots Jersey City NJ

A new and improved generation of Fox’s F3 motocross boot line. Here’s a list of things that stand out with the Fox F3 boot.

Fox Titan Pro Knee and Shin Guards Jersey City NJ

The Titan Pro is Fox’s top-of-the-line hinged knee and shin protection. Not everyone is comfortable with locking their legs into a rigid framework, willing to pay hundreds of dollars for knee protection, or entirely convinced of the viability of knee braces. No matter what your philosophy is, everyone can agree that keeping your knees from being smashed is crucial.

Inner Cooler Performance Wraps Jersey City NJ

A quilted material that is filled with a water-absorbing gel and acts like a radiator for your body. The gel is made of a polyacrylamide polymer that absorbs water at a rate of 500:1 and uses convection to control a racer’s body temperature. You wear it like a cape under your jersey. It sits against your skin and draws heat out of your body. It is not the same as placing a cold towel on your body.

JETT J1 Boots Jersey City NJ

The Jett J1 channels the original Scott plastic boot and the legendary Hi-Point Champion to produce a boot that is one pound lighter than some other high-end motocross boots. It is a old-school leather boot (in dimensions, sleekness, size and design) reconfigured as a modern plastic boot. It is protective and simple.

Leatt Moto GPX Adventure Neck Braces Jersey City NJ

While foam neck rolls have been on the market for over a decade, Leatt’s rigid neck support system (similar to the HANS device) revolutionized the safety movement. Here’s a list of things that stand out with the Leatt Moto GPX ADVenture brace.

Motocross Pants Jersey City NJ

Motocross Riding Gear Jersey City NJ

We’ve enjoyed riding with various HRP chest protectors through the years, and the Flak Jak IMS is no different. It comes with HRP’s signature IMS (Impact Management System) padding, which uses the displacement of air to transfer impact energy.

Motorcycle Helmet Dealers Jersey City NJ

Age does affect a helmet, but we checked with several helmet sources and they think that your Shoei helmet is still good to go (thanks to the fact that it was not exposed to the sun or elements for the last six years). As a rule, helmets should be replaced every five years. Shoei suggests that you send your helmet to them to have it inspected before wearing it.

Pod MX K700 Knee Braces Jersey City NJ

When the Pod knee brace was introduced to American riders a little over a year ago, it changed the dynamic of the knee brace business. Developed by an orthopedic surgeon in Australia, the PodMX knee brace gained phenomenal momentum against its competitors—especially the Asterisk knee brace and CTi. Where the CTi brace was, in our humble opinion, prohibitively expensive, and the Asterisk was unreliable, the PodMX came in at a reasonable price and with well-thought-out mechanical parts.

Utopia Warrant Goggles Jersey City NJ

What is so different about Utopia goggles? At first glance, the MXA wrecking crew didn’t notice anything unusual, but after a quick presentation by Utopia, we were blown away. Here's a list of things that stand out with the Utopia Warrant goggle.

Xtreme Viewpoint Goggles Jersey City NJ

The MXA wrecking crew tested the Xtreme Perspective goggle in the August 2008 issue. We enjoyed the Perspective goggle and gave it a good rating (three stars out of five), although we voiced our complaint that the Perspective needed multiple layers of foam.
