    Protection

    I was just wondering what protection you use while dj/park/urban riding. I would really rather not wear my full face dh helmet while riding and the park

    Shin/knee guard so you don't have to get stitched, skateboard-like helmet, gloves.

    You can look like Robocop for extra protection if you wish so...

    As far as helmets go, If I was to buy some new stuff I would go for Bell Faction or maybe Giro Flak or Pro-tec.

    Shin/knee guards, get SixSixOne's 4x4 Knee & Shin Guards. They rock.

    I wear a helmet, and sometimes gloves, and always pants.

    The only protection I wear consistently is gloves. I dont bother with a helmet at all, and pants are optional

    I'd rather save my head, because without it my hands are worthless.

    Usealy only gloves, my helmet when trying something new and potentialy dangerous. I really should invest in shin guards though.

    Its pretty much all gone now but you can see i could really use some shinguards... those damn DMR V8s, they grip like hell but their dangerous.

    P.S. snaky, i know i should wear my helmet at all times, but i really dont do anything thats worth wearing one on most days.

    Just gotta make sure when you fall that you tuck your head up into your chest and then your fine, thats assuming you fall on your back. But if you dont your hands should be there to save you. But hey, different strokes for different folks

    I wear knee/shin armor pretty religiously, gouged shins suck. I've also cracked the plasic knee caps on almost every set.

    I recently picked up some low grade fox shinguards, nothing more than freeride soccer shinguards really, but hey, shin/knee insurance for 19 bucks can't be beat!

    I wear a helmet whenever I'm RIDING ridin', not just ridin'. I leave it at home when I can be sure the folks won't notice me going off to a friend's house without it, they're rather *****y about that, but I wear it if I go into town, b/c there is actually some sort of law-type street rule about helmets until you're 16, and I follow rules like that when it's not inconvenient . . .

    doesn't keep kids from doing it, but usually those are kids I prefer never ever seeing or being associated with . . .

    Socks are optional though, boxers can be too if you're fresh out the shower.

    No helmet at the DJ's? Fine, it wouldn't do much anyway, but with all the crazy drivers around here, I'm happy I have mine for getting to one spot to another, because tucking and rolling just don't cut it when it comes to getting hit by a car.

    when im dhing im more concious than street about padding up. i rode/raced at snowshoe ln a wifebeater or muscle shirt, cutoffs, full face and 661 soft sheel knee pads. i blasted the racers edge booter like 10ft+ for this snowshoe camera lady and she wouldnt put me in the ad cos i wasnt dressed appropriately. the guy behind me made it in by dropping the small one going 5mph or less cos he wasnt on a rental and had a full tld kit. i wear elbows too if its a sketchy course
