Protection
 
Hi,

I wanted to start riding rails/boxes. Do you guys use special protection for your legs and co. when riding rails? Usually I'm wearing a back protection and a helmet and i really start thinking of buying something like:

ICETOOLS Armor Pant black

Maybe for the knees something? I really don't know. I don't care about pain I just care about some serious stuff. It's part of the sport but if possible, i try to train save. :)

Thanks

definately invest in a butt pad to protect your tail bone, helmet, maybe some wrist guards. if your on some powder it won't be that bad to come off a rail and eat it a few times, but hard pack sucks to eat it on much! and can really throw off your confidence.Good luck jibbin it up

I actually have a little wirst guard. Built into my gloves. Still got that kind of beginner gloves, never bought anything new. Althought I'm no beginner anymore.

Thanks for the replies. I'll check what equipment i get. Any good buying guides or tips? Dont want to buy crap.

i wear a hemlet if im making hot laps...but thats it, i dont like anything else. My first few years i slammed my tailbone pretty hard, but after that i dont ever get hurt there any more. the more protection you have on the more constricted you will be also.

I love my impact shorts. They are very comfortable actually and add an extra layer on cold days... when its hard pack I wear my level gloves with wrist guards just in case, they help to use while slowing down a slide on an icey face too.... I always have my helmet on too

I have 2 pairs of impact shorts
  • With out hip & thigh pads
  • with hip & thigh pads
Yep you guessed it I ate a rail wearing the one without the hip pads that day. Still sore 3 weeks later. I'm all about the safety gear

What brand shorts do you have?

I have some protecs and I think the others are demon. Both are soft cell.

Cool, thanks. I need to buy a pair of shorts badly since I'm starting to get into park stuff and don't want to break my hip or butt...

I got what was on sale. I paid under $25 for each pair
