Not for anything but dirt really. They do have childrens helmets though ... they had some up at cycle gear. I plan on getting some moto cross gear for my son just to putt around the neighborhood.

For your daughters age / size there's not much.

A lot of the dirt stuff actually works well for low speed get offs.

Talk to SuzAnne next time you come by, she's had a lot of experience in this area and can help advise you.

Yeah I'd have to think there is little if any street gear for kids...

My son is 8 and he has a full setup of off road gear.....some of the offroad stuff and a helmet and a leather jacket might do the trick.

double them up in knees and elbow pads, and i highly recomend kneck rolls paired with the helmet. when i worked at cycle gear, that was my main recomendation to parents getting their youngsters into riding. the kneck roll will be more comfortable on their young growing developing knecks, and reduce fatigue, and potential for strain. i'd even go as far as to recomend a chest protector, even if they are speeding around on pocket bike...

+1 on that

I'm a big believer in gear. Always have been.....helmet has saved me riding off-road more than once.

He, my 8 year old, has a 90cc 4-wheeler and a 50cc 2-stroke dirt bike. So gear is important. You can kinda see his dirt bike in the foreground next to my gixxer and his green 4-wheeler in the background.

Cycle gear has an HJC full face street helmet for kids, and often times women's xs small gear fits the kids.
