What It Is
Shot MX is a 25-year-old apparel company from France that has enjoyed a lot of success throughout the European off-road market, and two of its moto lines are now available in the United States. The Contact line of Shot MX apparel is affordably priced and features all the accouterments you’d expect from high-end race gear.
We love the designs of the Shot MX gear as they are progressive and bold, while remaining clean and not over-designed.
The Contact pant relies largely on sublimated graphics and not sewn-on plastic parts for its design elements. Old-school fabric patches here and there are an awesome touch. The pants are super lightweight.
Pants run true-to-size and feature just the right amount of room in the knees for knee braces. A stretch panel in the rear of the pant provides the right amount of flex.
The Contact gloves feature palm padding and some protection on the knuckle side, but they break in quickly and are super comfortable.
The cut of the Contact jersey is a little on the baggy side, especially in the forearm area.
Shot MX is an exciting new player in the American motocross gear arena, and its first offerings are good looking, comfortable, and durable. Best of all, the lightweight gear is affordably priced and a great value.
