    The boy (12, father’s skinny legs) wants a bmx for Christmas. Well, actually he really wants a VR headset but that’s not going to happen, screen/device time is already a big enough battle!

    Any recommendations for shin pads? Ideally knee and shin combo but I imagine they are much harder to find with a decent fit and comfortable

    Footie ones might have more choice available or be of better fit.

    Footy shins from SportDirect, spray black.

    I wear them for minicing around the woods, but I got weak shin skin 🙁 always smacking them somehow.

    Footy shins for years and have worked well.

    What about good shoes and decent pedals? That’s what stopped my shin injuries all those years ago.

    Or done ion d3o socks

    Can you even buy BMX specific shin pads anymore? I can’t think of any. I’d probably buy footy ones as above.

    But also, decent pedals and a pair of Vans will be more useful.

    Got the pedals sorted and a pair of Ride Cencepts Hellion Elite inbound (for a pretty bargainous £48). He broke his big toe earlier this year in an off wearing normal trainers so gripper soles and a decent toe box should help

    Have a look for fox ones in your local Motocross shop, that’s what most of the kids who race BMX here use.

    I run fuse shin pads (when I use shin pads) they definitely do a small maybe an extra small I am not sure.

    At our kids BMX, those that have shin pads mostly seem to have combined knee and shin guards. Fox and leatt seem popular
