Where to buy riding gear for kids.

I've promised my 9 year-old son his first dirtbike in the spring, so with Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd start geting him decked-out in riding gear. He already has a decent full-face helmet but I want to get him a chest protector and riding clothes.

Since I haven't really purchased too much gear in the past, I'm hoping you folks can point me in the right direction regarding where I might order him some gear. Looking for good quality and decent prices.

I've used motorcycle close outs quite a few times. Cheap gear, good selections, lots of brands, etc. doesn't hurt to check them out.

Dirt gear for kids is abundent. You can get it at most MC dealers and online.

If you are looking for Street gear however there is a new company that looks promising. I understand they will start selling this month.

Look on your local Craigslist. Kids outgrow this stuff all the time.

I'm going to 2nd cyclegear, but if you can go into a store it will be better to check fit. As always fit is a big factor in the protection and poor fitting can cause injury too.

We have Bob's Cycle supply local
You may want to try and find a shop/dealer within driving distance from where you are. Way easier
