A helmet, elbow pads, knee pads and protective gloves are the most important pieces of safety equipment for riders of mini bikes. It is also very important to wear proper footwear and avoid non-protective footwear such as sandals.
Experts advise riders to select helmets certified for mini bike usage, since this ensures the helmets provide the proper protection. It is best to wear elbow pads and knee pads with hard caps to increase protection in an accident. It is also very important to ride in the daytime or under proper lighting and to avoid motor vehicle traffic as much as possible.
