Over the years, I’ve noticed there are two things guys cheap out on when it comes to their wardrobe: socks and underwear. Sure, you can go to the local Wal-Mart or Target and grab a three pack for $12, but once you get home and try those suckers on, you quickly realize you get what you pay for. Three months later, you’re back in Wal-Mart buying another set because the previous ones are already ruined. [Editor’s note: Or you just stick with those tattered Wal-Mart ones for the next five years. Or, um, so says a friend. – Weege]
Save yourself another trip to Wally World and buy some legit undies. Ethika recently launched their Performance line and it’s a perfect base layer for motocross performance. We all ride moto, right? We may as well have some solid support down there. The Performance line SubZero pair features a moisture-wicking cooling fabric, and a high quality jacquard waistband (85 percent cooling polyester, 15 percent spandex), which is perfect for those long motos in the hot sun. Also in the Performance line is the Flow pair. The Flow is designed to create maximum breathability while maintaining high compression. You get ventilating mesh fabric, full compression and a high quality jacquard waistband (90 percent polyester, 10 percent spandex).
Get your own pair at ethika.com for $30 (Flow) or $32 (SubZero).
Protecting down there is an important part of motocross. You know what else is worth protecting? Your eye balls. Von Zipper has you covered with the Bushwick XT, the Beefy or the PorkChop (see what their doing here?). Their thermo-polyurethane frame remains flexible in all conditions, while their anti-fog coated cylindrical lens allows for crystal clear vision. Pick up the Beefy (MSRP: $60.00), the Bushwick XT ($75.00) and the PorkChop ($85.00) at Vonzipper.com.
