Welcome to DirtBikes.com’s 2017 Holiday Gift Guide, featuring gifts priced $50-100. Here’s a look at 10 more great holiday gift ideas that cost just a little more than the items on our Gifts Priced Under $50 list.
10. Thor Guardian Women’s Chest Protector, $79.95
Some riding gear companies recognize that there is a difference between the male and female physique, and Thor Racing addresses the needs of females with its Guardian Women’s Chest Protector. The lightweight and durable Guardian’s unique construction includes a pressure fit molded comfort liner system for a smooth inner chassis that is claimed to provide maximum comfort for her. An adjustable waist buckle closure system helps to tailor the fit of the Guardian, which is form-fitted just for women. A stone shield with energy-dispersing panels and a Level 1 back protector help to minimize impact energy transmission to the upper torso, while strategically placed ventilation ports help to keep her cool in hot wather. The Guardian’s shoulder guards are addjustable, and the biceps guards are adjustable and removable. The Guardian packs a lot of value in the Gifts Priced $50-100 category here.
9. Leatt 3DF Hybrid EXT Knee Guard, $99.00
We’re still surprised to see how many riders don’t wear knee guards when riding their dirtbikes, so we wanted to make sure that our Gifts Priced $50-100 list contained at least one example of these critical pieces of riding gear. Leatt’s 3DF Hybrid EXT Knee Guard fit the bill, combining the comfort of soft and hard textiles in a hybrid knee and shin guard with the benefit of extended length. The Hybrid EXT builds on Leatt’s 3DF AirFit protection range via additional deflecting hard shell areas for extra protection on the shins. The 3DF AirFit uses soft, ventilated impact foam that is flexible in its natural state but instantly transforms into a hard, energy absorbing substance upon impact. The Hybrid EXT incorporates 3DF impact absorbing material in the knee area of the guard. The Hybrid EXT boasts a slim profile and silicone-printed and adjustable non-slip cuffs help keep the guards in place. Available here.
8. Torc1 Vengeance Flex Front Brake Lever, $59.99

These durable levers are constructed of CNC-machined 6061 billet aluminum for both the “knee” pivot and the lever blade, with a built-in stainless steel pivot mechanism for added strength, yet they are designed to “fold” on impact, preventing lever breakage.
