I can also vouch for these pads, having fallen on them twice today! The first time was more of a slide, but the second was a bigger impact and although I've lost some skin from my left elbow, I'm sure it would have been a lot worse without wearing them. Likewise the 661 pads, G-Form compression top plus the No Fear helmet, all of which saw some action. Definitely well worth the investment and a reminder to always wear protective gear on track!!! :daumenhoch:

PS Forgot to say that I also picked these 661 shin pads up cheaply off fleabay! :daumenhoch:

Following my off in July, I've been thinking about a change of protective gear with a view to giving me a bit more shoulder protection if (or more likely, when) I fall again. At the moment I wear the G-Form top with the Leatt chest protector on top of that. Both of those are pictured below. The G-Form top uses soft pads which harden up on impact and I really like both the idea and the fit. The Leatt is obviously harder and gives good protection to the chest and back, though mine lacks any shoulder protection. I've also been finding that it doesn't really fit my body shape that well. With that in mind, I've been thinking about replacing it with something that fits better and has a bit of hard, shoulder protection. Something like the Answer one below. I would then continue to wear that over the G-Form to give me double-protection, as it were.

Any thoughts?

Have a couple of additions to my race wardrobe. The first is a pair of 100% Ridefit gloves, that I plan to use for practice sessions to give my race gloves a rest. The second is an old, I think 90s, Free Agent race jersey that I'm also going to wear during practice sessions. I may also give it a race outing 'cos it's so damn cool! :coolsmiley:
