Ineffective Armor in Motorcycle Gear

Post by WingAdmin »



It's a real scandal the quality of motorcycle riding gear that is sold here in North America. Compared to European gear, our stuff is built to a price point, and the quality shows - both in construction and selection of poor quality protective armor contained within it.

In this video I talk about this problem, show exactly what kind of ridiculous "armor" our gear manufacturers consider protective - and more importantly, I show what product I use to replace it.
Riders hate stiff, inflexible armor that is uncomfortable and ill-fitting: the product I demonstrate is soft, flexible and comfortable - and protects far better than what comes with your gear.

D3O is another excellent source of this type of armor.
I may be growing older, but I refuse to grow up.
