Hello and welcome to Alex's Blog,
A child is for life not just for Christmas, but it is nice to treat them at Christmas and if your little one is bike mad then what better gift than to kit them out to either come on the back of yours or be safe on their own bike? I was on the back of my dad's bike at 6 years old (as soon as my feet could touch the pedals) and look at me! With my own blog all about motorcycling - your kids can dream! This week I will concentrate on childrens motorcycle kit designed for road riding.
Your kids will always be your most precious cargo so you want to make sure they are kitted out as safely as possible. Here are a few gift ideas for them that will keep them happy as they fit well and look good, and they will keep you happy because they will be safe wearing these:
Black Kids Full Face Helmet
Pink Kids Full Face Helmet
Matt Black Kids Full Face Helmet
First up the Frank Thomas FF03 full face helmet. This is ECER2205 approved - the European road safety standard that all helmets have to adhere to, and is ultra-lightweight for added comfort but also has a fully removable and washable liner, easy fastening with a seatbelt style ratchet fastener, comes with its own helmet bag and comes in a choice of four colours. At £49.99 this also comes in at a bargainous price!
Some people like leathers, some people like textiles - its all a personal preference. Here I will give options of both for your child.
Black & Yellow Textile Jacket
Black Textile Jeans
Black Textile Jacket
The Frank Thomas Krag FTW420 textile kids jacket is not only 100% waterproof but is fully adjustable to fit your child well (and also gives some growth room) and has CE approved armour at the shoulders and elbows. This comes in two colours and even has matching trousers - the Frank Thomas FTW421 Kids Krag pants. These are also waterproof with CE approved armour at the knees, comfort thermal liner and adjustable height braces to keep draughts away and to fit well.
The Frank Thomas Junior Leather Jacket is constructed from genuine cowhide for added abrasion resistance and has CE approved armour at the shoulders and elbows, a touring styling, a comfort quilted lining, longer back to reduce draughts and it even has a handy mobile phone pocket!
Matching jeans are available, the Frank Thomas Junior leather jeans. These have CE approved armour at the knees, stretch panelling for ease of movement and a better fit, zips at the ankles for versatile styling with boots (and these make it easier getting boots on and off) as well as touring styling.
Boot-wise most childrens boots double up as motocross and road boots. The Max Kids off-road boots are no exception. They are dual-use because they are ultra-lightweight so are comfy when road riding but also ultra-protective with ultra-sturdy soles. Accordion panelling means these are comfy to wear and give ease of movement on the bike and these are secured with a clip fastening system. A fantastic boot.
