With so many brands and options out there it can be tough to find the right gear. To get started you just need to be fully covered including gloves and most importantly a full faced helmet - We do have a limited number of hire helmets available to have a go and see if you like racing.
Where to Buy
There are a number of local stores that stock a range of BMX gear to suit those just starting out to those who are at the top of their game and where every gram is important.
We always recommend supporting your local bike store as they will be able to provide the best advice and support as you grow into the sport.
