    Bone Protectors

    So I was just thinking on what kind of protective gear to get for next years enduro race season. What do you guys wear? (Knee pads, Elbow pads, ect...)

    I wear different amounts for different types of rides, but for rides with more down than up I`ll generally wear knee pads, elbow pads, some sort of spine protector, and either a full face or my Bell Super with some goggles.

    I`m using some 661 EVO`s for knee pads and really like them. The D3O makes them easy to pedal in while still saving my knees on numerous occasions. Lots of padding around the sides of the kneecap as well.
    For spine protection, I`ve got the Race Face Flank jersey. It has a foam chest piece and D3O in the shoulders and spine. It can get a bit warm on hot days but it has saved me in some nasty crashes.

    Another thumbs up for the 661's, great for riding here in the winter also. Keeps things nice and warm.

    Was using the 661 Evo knee pads but the soft neoprene like parts wear pretty badly. Just got some fox launch pads and love them so far...kinda hybrid between soft and hard shell but at least as peddleable as the 661 with no sliding whatsoever.

    For peddle rides, Troy lee jacket with 3do stuff.

    Usually a met parachute for helmet..

    Every ride. Every time. Too many times have I been on an "easy" ride and busted myself up doing something stupid or not paying attention. Usually, it's just some scrapes or maybe a bruise. But, if an extra minute of padding up can prevent it... why not?

    How is this thread at all off topic? Last time I checked, we were talking about pads for AM riding in the AM forum
