If you’re more into riding than Christmas shopping, if you don’t want to risk a potentially fatal disease while trying to buy a flat-screen TV at Best Buy, don’t worry: you won’t miss some of the best Black Friday deals out there for dirt bike riders! We’ll be collecting some of the best deals for motorcycle gear for the off-road riders on your holiday shopping list.
What is Black Friday?
Falling on the day after US Thanksgiving, “Black Friday” is unofficial start to the holiday shopping season. Though not an actual holiday, a lot of people take both the Thursday and Friday off for a four-day weekend. That’s one reason why retailers have jumped on Black Friday, with big sales for people taking the day off to go shopping for holiday gifts. The result is one of the busiest shopping days of the year.
For 2020, Black Friday falls on Nov. 27, with many retailers timing their sales for the stroke of midnight (and some even earlier!).
Here are some of the best Black Friday deals for dirt bike riders. (Updated Nov. 18, 2020 with new deals.)
Arai VX Pro-4 Slash Helmet – Save 15%
The iconic Arai VX Pro-3 receives its long-awaited replacement in the form of the Arai VX Pro 4 Helmet. The Arai VX Pro4 dirt helmet is for the serious off-road enthusiast, who requires nothing but the utmost in comfort and protection from their lid. The round shell shape is based on Arai’s R75 Shape Concept and is optimized for strength and the peak, mouth vent and top vents are all designed to break away upon impact leaving less surface mass to catch or bind.
The interior Dry-Cool liner and cheek pads have been redesigned for comfort and ease of putting the helmet on and removing it, and feature Arai’s signature triple-density foam construction. The eyeport is extremely wide and is large enough to accommodate even the largest goggles for a panoramic view of your surroundings. All the VX Pro vents have been redesigned, including an all new chin vent which has been moved to the outside of the helmet, which in turn makes the helmet roomier in the chin area. The other vents have been re-tooled as well, to provide increased airflow.
Fox Racing Comp R Boots – Save 60%
Leave distractions and restrictions behind with the Fox Racing Comp R boots. Pure and practical, the Comp R combines the Fox ActiveLock closure and floating cuff system for best-in-class mobility. The two lower buckles were designed to hold the top of your foot firmly while pulling the ankle into the boot. The calf closure utilizes the ActiveLock silicone strap for extra support and flexibility, while the floating-cuff system in the heel allows the boot to move more naturally for improved agility but still locks out to prevent hyperextension.
All of these features combined means the Comp R Boots fit snug, have zero pull in the heel, and are comfortable right out of the box.
EVS TP 199 Knee / Shin Pads – Save 20%
Designed specifically for Travis Pastrana, the official EVS TP199 Knee Pads offer everything for those looking for complete support without the bulk of a traditional knee brace.
Fox Racing Youth V1 Matte Helmet – Save 20%
The Fox Racing Youth V1 Helmet delivers the next level of rider technology, Fox’s exclusive Magnetic Visor Release System (MVRS). This pro-level patent pending feature removes the three visor screws and replaces them with magnets to allow the visor to release from the helmet in the event of a crash, while also securely staying in place when needed to protect from roost and aiding in clear vision.
As always, the V1 Helmet from Fox Racing offers value, comfort, and performance in a single package, setting the standard for head protection in the dirt. It features injection molded polycarbonate shell construction, four shell sizes, and four EPS sizes for a precise fit.
