Equipment & Gear Details

A race worthy bike is a necessity. Bikes can cost what you want them to. Anything that looks like a BMX bike is a BMX bike and suitable for club nights- training only. Any BMX bike that is presented in a safe condition is eligible to be raced at club nights only.  Bells, stands, reflectors of any kind, mudguards, aerials, sharp or protruding axles and broken spokes make the bike UNSAFE FOR BMX RACING.

A BMX helmet is very similar in design to a Moto-X helmet, but is constructed of lightweight materials. Full face helmets of a one piece construction are recommended. Moto-X Helmets are ok as well.

Racing pants are usually made from nylon or sail cloth materials as these are more difficult to tear. Padding is inserted into the knee and hip areas. Let us know if you don’t have these when you first start out.

A racing jersey is essentially a long sleeved shirt with padding sewn into the elbow. Any long sleeve top is acceptable for club nights and training only.

BMX gloves are available at most bike shops, any type of gloves may be worn as long as they cover all of the fingers.

Any flat soled tennis style shoe or runner will provide the necessary grip required on the peddles with which riders must wear ankle length socks.

You will be required to have full race gear when you attend a open race event or titles.
