Founded in 1968, Thor MX is the originator of motocross racewear. Torsten Hallman made his first trip to the United States in 1968, racing and promoting the sport of motocross. It was then that T.H.O.R. (Torsten Hallman Original Racewear) was born. With nearly five decades of experience in the motocross industry, no other brand comes closes to the quality, innovation, performance and technology infused in Thor products. In the action sports industry, the lines can often be blurred between developing products for one discipline or another, and recent years have seen other leading brands focus their attention on other areas of the action sports world. Thor, however, is nothing but pure, hardcore motocross - a grassroots company that knows what it takes to get to the top step of the podium, and even more importantly, stay there.
Ryan Villopoto was a name that became synonymous with the Thor brand, as he obliterated the competition to take four consecutive AMA Supercross World Championship titles from 2011 through 2014. Few riders in history have dominated the sport the way that Villopoto did, and it's no coincidence that he chose Thor to carry him to the top of the podium over and over again, joining former Thor riders like Mike Brown, Grant Langston, Chad Reed, Jeff Emig and Dean Wilson as standing victorious at seasons end as World Champion. Winning championships doesn't happen every other day, and every champion knows the importance of high quality racewear. Thor Motocross Gear is the choice of all these champions and many more; make it your choice too.
Expanding on their unmatched range of motocross gear and apparel, Thor also lead the way in motocross protection. Anyone who rides or races dirt bikes knows the dangers involved in the sport, and Thor are committed to providing industry leading products with safety as their number one priority. Their massive range of Thor Body Armour features every kind of armour you could ever need. Their top of the range Sentry XP body protectors offer the ultimate in full upper body protection, endorsed by some of the best offroad riders around the world. The Thor Guardian body armour is the next level down, with a lightweight over the jersey design offering premium chest, back and arm protection from roost or impacts. The Sentinel GP follows a similar design process, minus the arm guards, for those chasing a compact and lightweight chest protector that you will barely even notice when riding! Available in Adults and Youth sizing, and with Women's specific styles also available, Thor have got armour for the whole family. Send Dad and the kids out with full confidence, knowing they're protected by the best motocross body armour around.
When it comes to motocross protective gear, there is none more important than the helmet. Designed and worn by Ryan Villopoto himself, Thor Verge Helmets had no problems protecting one of the greatest of all time, so you know it's a helmet you can put your trust in. Thor worked extremely close with the four time SX champion to develop a helmet that checked all the boxes. From every aspect, the Verge was intrinsically designed and developed to deliver world class perfomance across the board. Available at a price point much lower than other "premium" motocross helmets, the Verge is without doubt the definition of value for money. Although you can't put a price on safety, it's nice to have a helmet available that offers maximum protection at a more affordable price than many other brands. Get your head in a Verge today, and you will not regret it.
The rest of the Thor Protection ranges include boots, goggles, knee guards, elbow guards and kidney belts, offering a complete range of all the protective gear you could possibly need to ride a dirt bike. Also covering the offroad market with a solid range of jackets and pants designed specifically for offroad trail and adventure riding, Thor offer one of the widest product ranges for anyone with a motorbike. And for those who want to look just as stylish off the track as they do on it, you can't go wrong with a huge range of Thor Clothing as well!
For those of you who live and breathe motocross, look no further than Thor. The input of some of the fastest racers on the planet has helped Thor build some of the most technical and performance driven racewear ever offered to the sport of motocross. With Marvin Musquinn, Cooper Webb, Jason Anderson, Aaron Plessinger and Alex Martin flying the flag for the Thor brand, the future is looking bright for the brand that started it all.
