When you are riding off road on a trail bike, a big discussion point is what should you put in your tyres.
There is no definitive answer and it will depend on many factors including the terrain you usually ride, your budget and of course, whatever your mates use and say is the best thing since sliced bread!
So in an attempt to help you decide I have gathered as much knowledge as I can about the 3 main options and pulled it all together so you can decide for yourself.
So you fancy hitting the trails (not literally, although you undoubtedly will!) and you need some kit. You trundle to your local off road bike shop and pick up a pair of admittedly not very comfortable motocross boots, preferably in white. Because everyone knows the best and coolest dirtbike riders wear white boots!
Now this might not be a good idea. Why? No, not because they're white. But because motocross and trail riding are very different! The biggest difference is the sole. Motocross boots have flat soles, not designed for traction. So here are some things you might want to consider when boot shopping. I’ve put them in my order of importance but having done a bit of research it seems not every one has the same view.
