These MX gloves were made with the fingers in a curved/bent position keeping the gloves from cinching down on your hands as you tighten your grip and they have built-in lycra knuckle reliefs. Motocross riders are constantly tightening their white knuckle grip to maneuver their bike in the mud/trenches and need a glove that flexes. These gloves are specifically designed for motocross riders so they are incredibly durable by having reinforced layers making them long-lasting in the toughest conditions.
Motocross riders’ hands quite literally get “Broken in” with two types of injuries: blisters and “arm pump.” Since the bike handlebars are constantly vibrating it and jostling it causes surface tissue damage to the palms known as blisters. It also leads to “arm pump” which is due to the amount of extreme gripping and the rider’s forearm being constantly contracted reducing the blood flow and causing the forearm to harden up. Not fun, not fun at all.
So, what is the solution to Motocross blisters and arm pump? You guessed it!
These Risk Racing Palm Protectors absorb the vibration as opposed to the rider’s hands and forearm. greatly reducing these types of injuries. Be your rider’s hero by giving them these stylish palm protectors.

Only challenge, I have two kids! They both loved it and wanted it for themselves...so I had to buy another. Thanks a lot Risk! ha ha ha Your freebie bag turned into another order :)” - Jenny C #231 on Aug 19, 2020

For Motocross riders who race often one of the most frustrating repairs are a leaky fork seal. Repairs might be a few trips to the mechanics a year because of specialty tools and how finicky the fork seals are by getting itty bitty particles of sand and debris in them. They are a pain in the butt and can cost a rider their whole race weekend, but with the seal doctor, this doesn’t have to happen.
Simply put, the Seal Doctor pulls and prevents the dirt from getting into the fork seal so the rider doesn't even have to experience leaky fork seals and costly repairs. Of Course, if there is a deeper problem the rider will still have to investigate their seals further. But for the most part, the seal doctor comes to the rescue and saves the day.

This system assists the rider’s goggle roll-off system by pulling its cord remotely so that the rider doesn’t have to manually do it with their hands. Moto tracks are going to be really wet and muddy either from weather or being “groomed” (they do this so the dirt impact isn’t as hard and the bikes don’t slip with the different consistencies of dirt).
In extreme terrain conditions where the mud is thick, the last thing an MX rider wants to do is take their hands off the handlebars and manually clear their vision. Giving them this device makes the rider that much safer so they can keep their hands on the handlebars. This allows them to just focus on winning the race.

One of the biggest factors of a Motocross race is in the first seconds the race starts.

All of my friends want to buy one for themselves. Stop wasting money on cheap/flimsy canopies and go with RISK! It's worth every penny…” - Kevin W. on Jul 03, 2018
This mat is so nice not only for their shop and garage, but also in their pit area on race day. It not only jazzes up an MX racers pit space and makes them look more professional but it really can come in handy when they are working on their bike. A lot of Mx pits can see a lot of weather stirring up the mud and dirt, and from time to time your rider will need to check their bike and perform maintenance. This mat will provide them a sturdier surface than sinking in the mud at the pits.
Riders and their crew go to the track come rain or shine and having an umbrella for both weather extremes is a must! MX Riders really do soak up a lot of sun and play all day in the rain. Help them defy the elements, and be shielded in style.

Say goodbye to tie-down straps, floor anchors, and wheel chocks by having a lock-load system.

The system also is easily removable, only leaving a low-profile plate behind so you can still utilize the space for other stuff or projects.
“Must have” - “I transport four bikes in my trailer and by the time I am done loading up there are so many straps it is impossible to get to the back of the trailer. the Lock-N-Load system eliminates this problem! Not to mention my fork seals have remained perfect since buying this product. If you have OCD like myself you will love how organized your trailer looks without a web of straps!” -Roger Jones on Jan 18, 2019

Most Motocross stands don’t even get both tires off the ground let alone let you level the bike, but this stand does! There are so many different bikes out there it’s rare to find a stand that accommodates them all, which is also awesome for gift giving! Especially if you don’t know the exact bike they have or if they have multiple. You might not realize how nice it is to be able to get both tires off the ground but it is freaking amazing when considering washing and maintenance could happen after every race.
“Awesome stand!” - “Got mine today and was initially impressed with the quality and it feels much sturdier than my last stand (which I am replacing because it is bent up due to normal use). My hunch is this stand will hold up better than my last. Plus, I have a KTM 450 and this made it sit perfectly level. Hated my front tire touching. I have only played with the magnets so far, but they feel very strong. I am sure they will work well for me. Smart design!” -Collin M on Mar 27, 2019
This stand is so nice after a long day of racing motocross. Not only because it makes your bike look like it’s mounted as a trophy but after a brutal day out on the track it is so nice not to have to manually pick your bike up and put it on a stand. This stand is great for kids, shorter individuals, people who don’t want to lift 200 lbs, or simply want their bike to look good perched up instead of sinking in the mud.
Moto racers ideally need to wash their bike off after every race to ensure it’s not leaking and check out what their latest wreck did. Using this stand is almost effortless how easy it is to ride on, once the front tire engages the lift, you just step on the level and secure it with a locking pin.
Whether it’s a rainy day on the motocross track or they overwatered it, it’s guaranteed if your rider is out riding their bike is going to get roosted in mud. Mud directly impacts the bikes performance, handling, suspension, weight and it’s essential the rider gets that mud off which sounds easier said than done. Between races, water to wash your bike can be very limited, that is where this Mud Axe does it’s magic, scraping, picking, and scooping mud out of every nick and cranny on the bike. It saves the rider time and effort and gets rid of the extra weight, which is a must on race day.
Motocross racers burn through different types of bike fluids and need some type of container to get maintenance liquids to the track. This EZ Utility Jug pours perfectly for dirt bikes since it offers three different handles to leverage the jug adapting to the level of fluid you have left to pour.
Read the backstory to how the product line of lights got started and you'll know it was low lit lighting specifically on dirt bikes. They cover a huge range of flashlights & headlamps to flexible hands-free lights and overhead screw-in lighting systems that offer multiple LED's to name a few.
