I used to say I was never riding again everytime I broke a bone on my MX bike. It was true until the next time I went racing ...

haha! Tell me about it. I was already waffling on that decision less than a week after the accident. I already promised my wife, daughter, the world that I'm done with kickers though so I gotta honor that.

You'll note that hips, rollers and natural transitions weren't included though

sabatoa huh, I think I should look into this for next season. I'm not hitting jumps anymore but I imagine my injury will make my back more sensitive to blows in the future.

Donutz I have a spine protector, more for park than for general riding. But this year I plan on getting more agressive, so I'll probably wear it all the time. I already wear my knee/shin pads all the time.

I hate rails I've actually have found my backpack to be pretty good at impact absorption

Penzer I ride with a spine protector (and a helmet) inbounds, every day. I've never injured my back had been riding for years before I decided to get one.

I figured it was a good idea since the reality is we're riding pretty damn fast and/or doing tricks on, over or around trees, cliffs, rocks, jumps, ice, other humans, and rails/boxes if you're into that.

It's super comfortable and does not impeed my riding in any way, I find a backpack is more of a hindrance.

Mine is a Demon and I'm very happy with it, but that was all that was in the shop so I've never even tried on another brand.

Guess I landed just right for it.
owwwww, when I heard that i winced. thats usually how I fall: catching edge after a kicker or a drop

For the most part I always figured they were for big mountain and back country riders, but after this how practical are they for resort riding? How comfortable are they?
Any helps much appreciated
Thanks.
I was thinking about getting one, although I don't fall that much when I do it hurts like a biyatch
