What protective gear is available?
For skaters there are many items available for protection. The skate helmet is by far the most important, though by no means is it the only necessary item. An injury will never occur when or where you expect it! Wearing one elbow pad might seem safe to you, since you always fall to that elbow, but the truth is that your whole body is always at risk when doing aggressive sports. To help you prevent these injuries from happening, we have provided you with a basic check list of valuable safety gear.
- Knee Pads
- Elbow Pads
- Wrist Guards
- Shin Guards
- Knee Gaskets (neoprene underpads)
- Crash Pants (pad lined shorts)
