Your essential kit for Trials riding days
Regardless of if you are a beginner or have been attending Trials riding days for many years, you will know the importance of having the correct kit for this challenging sport. Trial riding takes endurance, precision, agility and skill, just to name a few, but choosing your kit wisely can make the difference between a successful run and too many penalties.
Below we’ve outlined some our top picks, which will hopefully help to keep your feet firmly off the ground at all times!
We may be biased, but we reckon your tyres are one of the most important things to get right when taking on trials riding days. Here are our 2 favourites:
We have found that in winter conditions the Michelin Trial X11 tyre gives better traction in mud and has a thicker sidewall, so may provide better (tubeless) puncture resistance.

Michelin X Light
The Michelin X Light tyre does what it says on the tin, it’s the lightest of the Trial tyres, making it ideal for smaller bikes with pro or lighter weight riders. We would recommend this tyre to be used in dry, summer conditions.
We also offer a combo deal on the Michelin X Light range, so you can save yourself some money and purchase the front and rear tyre together… buy it here.
Our Trial range is currently on SALE, so don’t miss out on getting your tyres cheaper! Click here to see the whole range.
We sell a range of accessories which suit both Enduro, Trail and Trial riders. Having the right accessories can mean that you will be more prepared, speed up the process of preparation before the race and also keep your tyres in the best condition they can be before and after your Trials riding days.
Our recommended accessories are:
- Motion Pro Rim Protectors – an essential piece of kit to be kept in your tool box for ultimate protection of your rims.
- Motion Pro Bead Buddy – to make your life a little easier when changing your tyre, the bead buddy will push down the bead on your tyre.
Boots, helmet, protective gear… you’re going to need it all!
