Ok, so I wear a fair bit of safety gear… I hate getting hurt! but love trying new tricks and try push my limits every time I ride. I’ll start bottom to top.
Ankles – 661 lace up ankle braces. I have had a fair few rolled ankles back in the day. I’ve heard they might make your ankles weaker, but I haven’t noticed that…
Shins – Fuse double padded shin pads. I love them! they just protect more of my legs for whips and front jams, a lot more then standard ones.
Knees – Poc hard cap knee pads- they are pretty flexible, then when you land on them they go hard on impact to protect.
I wear skins on my legs under my pads, just so I can get changed at the park and to also help stop rashes from the pads.
Hands – Fox Incline gloves- a thin great fitting glove, they come in girl sizes as well.
Mouth – a mouth guard I had made at the dentist. My teeth are to most expensive thing I own, after knocking four out in 2011.
Head – TSG Kraken- LOVE it!!!! best fitting hard shell helmet I could find and pretty light. It doesn’t look that funny either.
