Dirt Bike Sizing Chart: Interactive Guide (2018)

The interactive dirt bike sizing chart below is a useful tool to assist in finding the right dirt bike.

It is also particularly helpful for kids as it covers the main manufacturer’s bikes and all the different height and power options available.

If you know what type of bike you want ie. enduro or motocross, then this guide will be useful in determining the best option.

If you are still working out what type of dirt bike you want then I suggest visiting my beginners guide to dirt bikes as this can help work out what type of bike you want first then come back to the sizing chart. Click here to access.

Getting The Seat Height Right For Your Size

When Selecting a dirt bike, getting the seat height right is important.

You should be able to comfortably touch the ground with both feet when sitting on the bike. This does not mean your feet should be flat on the ground but the balls of your feet should be able to support you in the seated position.

If you struggle to support yourself then you can either look at reducing the height of the bike you are looking at(ie adjust the suspension height) or switch to another bike that is low enough.

Before you jump into the chart take a look at the recommended height list for dirt bike seats. This will give you a rough idea of what size bike to get based on seat height.

The Dirt Bike Size Chart

So, if you now have an idea of the size of bike you want, my size chart has 70 different bikes to choose from ranging from the smallest of dirt bikes right up to some really powerful machines.

Remember that this chart is just a guide and just because a bike maybe small in size doesn’t mean it is underpowered.

Alternatively, larger bikes don’t always have lots of power either.

It is a balancing act between finding a bike that has enough power for your needs and also the right size fit for comfort and rideability.

It is beyond the scope of this chart to cover all bikes and I have tried to cover off the most popular options. Please feel free to email me if you feel a group of bikes should be added to the list.

The Influence Of The Riders Weight

The chart above provides some basic guidance in determining what size dirt bike to get.

One other important factor to consider is the rider’s weight.

If the rider is new to dirt bikes and their build is on the light side then I would recommend starting with a 125cc bike.

While it may be tempting to go for the 250cc based on height, it may be too powerful.

Alternatively, someone with a larger frame may be better stepping up to a 250cc to ensure there is enough grunt.

Dirt Bike Sizing For Kids

My dirt bike sizing chart above provides a good understanding of the different seat heights for kids. It also allows you to see what size engines are available combined with the seat height.

The main point to remember with kids is making sure their feet touch the ground but are not flat-footed. If they are flat footed then the bike is probably too small and they will quickly grow out of it.

For more information regarding kids, my posts on safety equipment might be worth looking at. Click here for helmets and here for boots.

In Conclusion – Size Does Matter!

When it comes to dirt bikes, size does matter. Take your time to find the right size bike that will match not only your physical composition but also ability.

Get these two right and you will have a much more enjoyable time out on the trails or track.
