    kids downhill protection

    looking for a good web sight to find gear for my 11 yr old son. he is 75# & 4'8" full face helmet, knee, and shin guards

    He's been riding xc for 2 yrs and is now ready for some gnarly stuff.

    I think it will be tough to get kids specific but I would explore buying in SMALL-er size

    Place I would check out
    Amazon.com - I.e. good selection of FF helmets, etc
    Backcountry.com

    sixsixone has a line of soft shell youth sized pads. The line is now called Riot
    I wear the youth size shinguards (called Veggieskins) for DH which fit me great but will soon need replacing


    Six Six One

    I'm not sure about availability

    On the lighter side there is BMX youth stuff. If you have at least one local shop supporting BMX racing they should have some to try on.

    If you want something tougher, I'd be looking at youth motocross stuff. Again a local shop should have some to check out.

    I had to go to my local Moto store to kit up my 6 year old daughter. they have a great selection and can order any of the mtb specific cuz all the big pad distributors are the same for both groups of riders. super good service on fitting the pads to her right too
