Dirt bike riding is no longer the domain of just guys, we are seeing more and more girls and women getting into the sport, whether it’s on the trails or on the track. Ideally, the best women’s dirt bike riding gear has to work specifically for women and not be just redesigned men’s gear with different color schemes.
It’s important that each piece of gear fits each part of your body, so you may have to mix and match sizes to get the best fit.
Finding the right gear to suit your frame size and shape can be challenging for women riders. Some manufacturers tend to overlook women who ride.
As the sport of women’s motocross and other forms of dirt bike riding continues to grow, we are now seeing some of the top companies put out higher-quality products for women.
It’s good to see, the more women riding the better I say. It’s a lucky guy who has a girlfriend or wife that shares his passion.
The gear should not only comfortable and flattering to the female form, but should also be able to withstand the punishment of aggressive riding.
There is a lot more than just pink available now. Although there is a lot of pink in the product images below, most of them are also available in multiple colorways.
Leading brands like Fox Racing, O’Neal, and Alpinestars produce a good range of sizes and colors designed for women.
The Alpinestars Stella range is a good example of gear designed specifically for women. It includes MX, Dual Sport, and street riding jackets, pants, boots, and gloves.
Here’s a little inspiration from top professional motocross racer Tarah Gieger.
Tarah became the first female racer ever to compete in the ‘Motocross des Nations’ in 2007. She won the first women’s Supercross event at the X Games XIV in 2008. The rest is history.
Her amazing skill is evident in the slow-motion shots in this video.
Women’s Dirt Bike Helmets
Your helmet is your most important piece of dirt bike riding gear (followed closely by your boots). While most helmets are unisex, some women-specific helmets can be found in sizes and colors that will appeal to a lot of women riders.
If you are just beginning in dirt bike riding, you may be able to save some money by buying used riding gear, but NEVER buy a used helmet.
While it may look unmarked on the outer shell, you never know whether the inner shell has been damaged or compressed in a crash, which will make it unsafe.
There are some good helmets available in the under $200 price range. A lot of the safety technology found in the higher-priced helmets is now finding its way into the entry-level helmets, which is good news for beginner riders.
For some useful tips on buying a helmet: Buying A Dirt Bike Helmet – What You Need To Know
Fox Racing V1 Race Helmet
The Fox Racing V1 helmet is Fox’s entry-level helmet which also includes the higher-priced and V2 and V3.

Gloves are also something that is best fitting when designed specifically for women. Here are a couple of good examples.

They have a padded Clarino palm for comfort with a stretch mesh in the finger gussets for excellent mobility.

Alpinestars Women’s Stella Shore Motorcycle Glove

Alpinestars call these street gloves, but I have included them here because they would also be ideal for dual sport riding, being lightweight with lots of mesh inserts for airflow and flexibility, leather palm, and knuckle protection.
Stretch fabric on the back of the hand allows your hand to breathe in warmer weather.
Padded foam panels on the knuckles give you protection from branches and other hazards when trail riding and the synthetic suede reinforcing on the side of the palm and fingers would be welcome extra protection in the event of a fall on the road.

Women’s Dirt Bike Boots
There is a good range of dirt bike boots available now specifically designed to suit a female body with a narrower foot, less calf volume, and shorter overall height.
Here are 3 excellent women’s boots. I personally use the O’Neal Rider men’s boot so I can recommend the Rider boot for comfort and durable protection.
For some useful tips on buying boots: Dirt Bike Boots Buying Guide – What You Need To Know
O’Neal Women’s New Logo Rider Boot (Black/Pink)
The O’Neal Rider is a quality entry-level boot from a well-known and respected company.
The main construction of the boot is microfiber reinforced with TPU in the hard-wearing areas that take the most impacts.
At the top inner (medial) side there is a layer of synthetic leather that gives some heat resistance and aids grip on the bike. The inner ankle area cops a lot of punishment from your bike’s footpegs and the engine is protected with extra depth TPU, as is the lowest buckle.
3D air mesh interior lining around the ankle adds to the comfort, and there is a cushioned insole. They can feel a little stiff at first and need a bit of wearing-in time.
The stitched-on type sole has a moderate grip tread which helps when walking on slippery trails.
Accordion panels at the front and back of the boot allow the boot to flex and make walking more comfortable.
- Microfiber with TPU reinforcing in hard-wearing areas
- Metal toe guard to protect the front of the sole against delaminating
- Durable Goodyear welt sole which is properly balanced so there is no unstable rocking
- Synthetic leather heat shield on the inner side which also helps with grip on your bike
- Metal shank insert which reinforces the boot and adds support
- Injection-molded TPU plates for impact protection
CUSTOMIZATION & COMFORT
- Moderate grip sole which is great for the track, trail, or ATV riders
- Snap-Lock fully adjustable four buckle closure system
- Air mesh interior lining, generous heel support, and cushioned insole for extra comfort
- Rear pull tab for extra leverage when fitting the boots
- Straps and buckle replacements are available
- Colors available: Black/PinkSizes available: 5 to 12
Alpinestars Women’s Stella Tech 3 Boots
The Tech 3 is the entry-level boot from Alpinestars. The Stella Tech 3 has recently been upgraded and now incorporates a lot of the technology of the men’s Tech 7 and Tech 10, which are a lot more expensive pro-level boots.
They now feature the new arrow type buckle system which is a lot easier to use, especially with gloves on. They are strategically placed in alternate directions so that they don’t get caught on rocks or terrain while you’re riding.
The toe box is reinforced with TPU and the reinforcing extends all the way around the foot and also protects the buckles.
The inner (medial) side of the boot also incorporates TPU panels which help you grip your bike and also act as a heat shield against the engine and exhaust.
Accordion flex zones on the front and rear Achilles areas of the boot help with flex when walking and operating the brake and gear levers. The flexion is also helped by the ankle pivot system on the medial and lateral sides of the ankle.
The microfibre gaiter around the top of the boot helps seal out excessive water and dirt entry, although the boots, like all motocross boots, are not waterproof.
The Stella Tech 3 makes an excellent entry-level boot if you are starting out riding dirt bikes, with a lot of features you normally see in much higher-priced boots.
- Specially designed calf for an optimized women’s fit
- PU-reinforced microfiber upper for flexibility, abrasion resistance, water resistance, and weight-saving
- Contoured shin plate is injected with high modulus TPU for high levels of impact and abrasion resistance
- The medial boot side incorporates TPU panel with specially designed sculpturing for maximum grip contact with your bike and improved heat and abrasion resistance.
- Instep and Achilles accordion flex zones for superior control and support.
- Rubber compound sole is seamlessly integrated into the base structure for superior durability, high-performing grip patterning, and feel.
- CE certified to EN 13634:2010
- One-piece injected dual compound foot shell with co-injected hard toe protector and integrated steel shank.
- The shell is highly resistant to abrasion and impact, adding to the boot’s streamlining.
CUSTOMIZATION & COMFORT
- Excellent flexion is provided by a low-profile medial and lateral pivot system to offer movement and support.
- An extended microfibre gaiter helps seal out excessive water and dirt entry.
- Soft poly-foam padding surrounds the ankles and collar for comfort, fit, and additional shock absorption.
- Internal mesh textile lining for improved air circulation and comfort.
- Removable anatomic footbed for comfort and support ensures even weight distribution.
- The buckle closure system incorporates polymer and fiberglass buckle arms and high-impact aluminum bridge closures for durability and weight-saving.
- Ergonomic buckle system features memory and quick release/locking with a self-aligning design for precise closure.
- All buckles are easily replaceable.
- The sole is replaceable.
Fox Racing Women’s Comp 5 Boots
The Fox Racing Women’s Comp 5 boot is specifically designed to suit a female body with a narrower foot, less calf volume, and shorter overall height than the men’s Comp 5.
The new-look aluminum ‘Soft-Touch’ pivot lock buckles have been modified with a decreased size locking pin on the buckles which makes them easier to operate.
The reinforced contoured shin plate has extra TPU protection at the top front of the boot and the medial side.
The toe box and the sole is the ‘bonded’ design (as opposed to the stitched-on type sole of the O’Neal Rider boots above) which gives you a more streamlined lower profile look.
They are suitable for Motocross, Supercross, Enduro, and Trail riding. The boots are comfortable right out of the box and need no ‘breaking in’ period.
The Comp 5 is Fox’s entry-level boot in the under $200 price range and is ideal for the new dirt bike rider who is looking for a competitively priced boot that doesn’t compromise on safety.
They are available in Black/Pink and Black/White.
- Engineered for the entry-level rider but with a high-quality look and feel.
- Bonded outsole, specifically molded for each size boot. This enhances durability and comfort. It also gives the boot a new modern look.

- Full leather upper construction. Pliable and comfortable right out of the box.
The women’s Comp 5 boot has been upgraded to the new Women’s Comp boot. View at: Fox Racing
Women’s Motocross Body Armor
There are 3 basic types of body armor for the upper body.
These are: Padded Under Armor, Hardshell Roost Deflectors/Chest Protectors, and Body Pressure Suits.
They are not all created equal. There is some confusion between Roost Deflectors and Chest Protectors. They are not the same.
- Roost Deflectors: These are designed to protect you from flying rocks and stones kicked up by other riders, or minor brushes with branches and the like when trail riding. They are not designed to protect you from impacts in a crash. Some are CE-rated, but only as a stone shield.
- Chest Protectors: These are a little more expensive than Roost Deflectors and are designed to give you impact protection in a crash. The best ones are CE-rated for impact protection.
- Body Pressure Suits: These are the ultimate in body protection. They usually integrate chest, shoulder, elbow, and back protection, as well as a kidney belt, all held together by a one-piece breathable mesh chassis. The best ones are CE certified for impact and are generally more expensive than the chest protectors.

It can be difficult for women to find the right Chest Protectors and Roost Deflectors that are women-specific.
The problem with wearing men’s or unisex chest protectors is that the chest plate is fairly flat and can be uncomfortable for women to wear.

Women’s Motocross Riding Gear
The problem with wearing men’s jerseys and pants is that they are not very flattering and they just don’t fit well on most women riders. The jerseys tend to be too baggy and can be too tight in some areas.
Men’s pants have a lower crotch and tend to ride up on most women, making the pants waist go up past your belly button which is not comfortable.
Women’s jerseys and pants should be form-fitting while still giving you the protection needed, with the flexibility to allow you to move on your bike.
Fox Racing 2020 Women’s 180 Jersey – Fyce
The Fox Racing 180 Jersey has been designed specifically to fit the female body and provides the ultimate combination of motocross style and comfort.
It is constructed from a moisture-wicking fabric that helps draw sweat away from your body and features mesh side paneling for airflow and breathability.
The extended dropped-down tail helps the jersey stay tucked into your riding pants while riding.
This highly stylized jersey is available in about a dozen vibrant colorways in sizes ranging from X-Small to XX-Large.
- Moisture-wicking fabric provides a soft, lightweight fit while moving sweat away from the body to keep you dry

- Mesh collar and sleeve cuffs improve fit and comfort

- Drop-tail design keeps the jersey tucked into your riding pants
- 100% polyester

Fox Racing 2020 Women’s 180 Pants – Fyce
The women’s 180 Pants are a matching combo with the 180 Jersey and have also been designed specifically for women.
They feature the ‘Rider Attack Position’ (RAP) construction which means that they are tailored to fit best when you are on the bike in the riding position. This means a more comfortable fit.
Combine this with the strategic stretch panels and you have greater flexibility and a more natural feel on the bike.

While doing my research to find the best women’s dirt bike riding gear that is actually designed specifically for women, not just re-colored men’s gear, I gained an understanding of just how hard it can be for women to find the right gear.
As I’m a guy, not a woman I don’t have first-hand knowledge of how it fits, so I had to rely heavily on reviews from women users when selecting the best.
All the gear in this review has had overwhelmingly positive reviews from women. I have done a lot of the groundwork, so hope this has helped save you some time in your search for the best women’s gear available today.

Yes, this women’s dirt bike racing and the special protective gear does make this sport safer. I was excited to find the gloves as my nieces’ birthday is coming up in about 6 weeks, and I knew that is what I wanted to get for her if they were in my budget. With the information you have provided about being able to use their phones while wearing these gloves, it makes sense that they would be safer and more comfortable with the finger gussets, a feature I would not have know to look for.
As part of the family is loving this dirt bike racing sport, am sure I will be back to your site to see what else I might find along the way. This article is about Gear for Women, but I assume we will be seeing children’s wear as the niece’s kids are excited about this activity as well. We have some good riding areas in our part of the world, so we see them do some of there meets along the way. Definately a high action sport, and when it is fun for you to do, am so grateful for safe gear to help protect and be comfortable as well. Thanks, Sami
Hi Sami. I think both of those gloves in the review would be in your budget, they are both entry-level gloves under $40. You mentioned riding gear for children, I will be doing a review of youth riding gear in an upcoming post very soon. Thanks for dropping in.
I don’t spend much time outdoors but when I do, I enjoy dirt bike riding. This is a trait that my daughter shares and together, we go on bike rides sometimes. However, we’ve been unable to do that since the start of this stay at home order. This post has been quite helpful tho. My daughter and I have helmets and gloves but not the right shoes. I like the ones featured on this post and I’ll look to get one.
Hi Carol. Yes, it will be good to be able to get out riding again soon. You must have the right boots for riding. After your helmet, boots are the next most important piece of protective gear. Your feet cop a lot of impacts when dirt bike riding. Any of those boots in the review would be excellent, and they are all reasonably priced.
Thanks for your thoughts.
Indeed, Tarah Gieger is properly inspiring. Made me we want to learn to drive a dirt bike myself. Yeah… But getting on that level I assume is more than proper hard work.
And absolutely agree, I feel the sport is still largely dominated by men (and thus, men’s gear). Which inherently makes finding suitable stuff for women (not even speaking of the best here) quite challenging, to say the least. That’s why articles like this one are such gold. Truly saves a ton of time (and headache, and the going back and forth).
I really appreciate your input and the time you spent researching this, Greg!
Have a Great One!
Hi Matiss. I spent two weeks researching what was available for women, so this article will save people a lot of time because I have done the groundwork and put it all together. I will add more gear when I come across items that are good enough.
Tarah Gieger is certainly an inspiration for women riders or any rider for that matter. Glad you enjoyed the post.
Hey nice article you have there. the Alpinestars Stella Bionic Jacket is exactly the kind of protective gear any new rider to wear; it’s not just the extra layer of confidence one gains, it’s a true physical barrier to protect against the bruises and abrasions that comes with falling on the dirt, which is an inevitable part of the learning process.
Yes, the Alpinestars Bionic jacket is top of the line protection. It has the chest, back, shoulder and elbow protection, and a kidney belt all in the one package. I personally use a male version of the same thing and it’s saved me on numerous occasions. Thanks for your comments.
I don’t invest a lot of energy outside however when I do, I appreciate earth bicycle riding. This is a characteristic that my girl shares and together, we go on bicycle rides now and then. Notwithstanding, we’ve been not able to do that since the beginning of this stay at home request. This post has been very useful tho. I have protective caps and gloves yet not the correct shoes. I like the ones highlighted on this post and I’ll hope to get one.
By ‘earth bicycle riding’ I assume you mean mountain bike riding off-road. Some of the riding gear here would be suitable for that, especially the pants, jerseys, and gloves. It will be great to get out there again after all the Coronavirus restrictions are lifted. Thanks for your thoughts.
Hello Greg, thanks for sharing that wonderful post. Dirt biking is really fun for me and you knew you had to have good gear to get into the race so you’ll be on a safe side when injuries are involved actually. These are really good gear for anyone to get and get completely kit for any race and I really like it.
Hi Justin. All of the gear here is really a necessity for riding dirt bikes. Helmets and boots are the obvious essentials, but it is important to wear good body armor as well. The one time you don’t wear it is the time you need it. Thanks for your comments.
Dirt back riding is a very popular sport that has been known to be a great recreational activity that people can enjoy. My brother has always been an avid rider so it’s nice to see a review about it. I appreciate you taking the time to do proper research on these products and explain them in detail one after the other. They all seem like really great gear
Yes, there is some great safety gear available now, and good that women riders have gear specially designed for them. Thanks for your thoughts.
Thanks so much for sharing a beautiful, informative article with us. The principal element of this article is the Best Women’s Dirt Bike Riding Gear. It’s really amazing that you covered this subject so well in your post. I have learned a lot from reading your post and gained a lot of knowledge about it. I like Fox Racing Women’s Comp 5 Boots of the points mentioned in your article. I think its features are different from others and much better which anyone who does it will get real value.
I’ve read your article and enjoyed it and I’d like to share it with my friends by posting it in the Facebook community so that everyone knows about your article and gets to know it.
Glad you enjoyed the article, and thanks for sharing it in the Facebook community. There is an ever-increasing number of women and girls getting into the sport now, so this article is specifically for them.

Hello there, Thanks for sharing this awesome article I know it would be of great help to the public as it has been of help to me. I really like your selection of women’s gear for dirt bikes..my wife really loves dirt bike racing and I think I could get her a birthday gift from these list.
Great that your wife loves dirt bike racing. It is becoming increasingly popular with women, which is a good thing. Thanks for dropping in. Plenty of ideas here for a birthday gift.
I just started riding last year at the age of 46! I’m so hooked. I love trail riding and have already done a hare scramble. And soon will do my first enduro (only a 50 miler). My boyfriend and I have traveled all over Alaska, hitting trails and climbing mountains. It’s hard finding gear in one way, but there are some advantages. If you don’t mind used gear, you can find some awesome deals because some male teenager riders are growing so fast and have to upgrade, and those smaller sizes still fit you. For new gear I often read the reviews. If a guy’s review is “Great gear, but too short”, it’s likely it will fit me perfectly. The only issue I have is why does all women’s gear have to be pink? Thanks for the write up!
Hi Abbie. It’s great that you’ve just started riding, and can ride with your boyfriend.
Yes, there is a lot of pink in women’s riding gear, and I tried to select neutral colors as well, but thankfully a lot of the gear is available in a choice of colors.
There’s nothing wrong with buying used gear if you can get it in good condition. All except the helmet, of course, that’s a big ‘no’ because you never know if it has had an impact or not.

I love your writing on “Best Women’s Dirt Bike Riding Gear”. Your post is very much helpful and informative. Keep up the good work and present us your best.
Hi. Glad you found the post informative. I learnt a lot researching good women’s riding gear and came to understand how hard it can be for women riders to get gear that fits properly.
Hopefully, this post will save some time for women looking for good gear.
