    Is Race Face armor the same as Roach?

    Homer nation:

    All the carnage that's been taking place here recently has me looking into buying some armor.

    Does anyone know if the Race Face armor is the same as the Roach brand? Specifically, I'm looking at the leg/knee armor from these brands. They look similar and I thought I read they were similar or maybe identical. Anyone know for sure?

    I think so. Quote from Go-Ride Race Face/Roach page:

    "Because Race Face owns Roach, sometimes the pads we get say Race Face on them, sometimes they say Roach. But they're the same pads."

    I can't tell you with 100% certainty, but when I posed this same question to the owner of my LBS a couple years back he said they were the same.

    Thanks guys. Mulitple responses 15 minutes after the original post. Gotta love the Turner board.

    I think I'm gonna try a little armor, prophylactically.

    Oh lawdy... I hope you don't do that sort of thing on the air.
    Faster is better, even when it's not.
