  1. Hello ya all!, just thinking of getting myself a set of elbow guards, does anyone know of any good ones? thanks Colin
  2. High-tech Mobius X8 Knee Brace Uses Cable System Jul 30, 2014 By Beth Dolgner FRISCO, Texas – One of the most memorable new products at the Tucker Rocky/Biker’s Choice Brand Show was the Mobius X8 Brace, a very different approach to knee braces for motocross riders. Mobius inventor Darren Fleming developed the X8 Brace. The company says that it took seven years and an eventual collaboration with Supercross star Ryan Villopoto to arrive at this retail-ready design, which looks like something out of a futuristic sci-fi movie. Selling Points: The design of the Mobius brace is intended to prevent three typical knee injuries: lateral bending, lateral rotation and hyperextension. The hard Nylon shell is supplemented by the Continuous Cable Routing System (CCRS). It is a continuous cable loop in a figure-eight configuration that loops around the knee joint. The CCRS tightens when forces are applied to the knee joint. In turn, the brace shells tighten, too, to keep the knee firmly in place. The cable’s beginning tension is adjustable with a dial large enough to turn easily, even through a pair of pants. The straps that hold the brace in place are also adjustable. Another notable feature of the Mobius X8 is that the front of the knee is never exposed. The brace’s panels are articulated, and even with the knee bent, the pieces overlap. Options: Color options include white and bright yellow or gray and red. Price: $599.95 per pair. Ordering: Mobius has their launch planned for mid-September.
  3. Hey Ladies, After breaking a rib this year, then injuring it again, I'm looking for an upgrade to my roost guard. I have a thor, which fits 'the girls' pretty well, but is like a front and back shell. No side protection. I'm looking at the leatt 5.5 or the alpinestar a-8. Those are the only two protectors of any style I've seen that look like they have rib protection. Has anyone tried one? I was able to try on the leatt, but I wasn't happy with the fit. Maybe if I spend some time adjusting it, but it seemed pretty tight on top. Any other suggestions? The stella bionic looks nice, but it looks like it doesn't have any rib protection either.
  4. Looking for some input on protective jackets. I sweat a ton when I ride, so something with good airflow is important...but I also crash a lot, so protection is equally important. In the past two years I've used the Thor Impact Rig, which was decent but didn't breathe all that well and both straps to the chest plates broke. Currently using the Fox Titan Sport Jacket and it also fails to really breathe well, also the extra support belt keeps coming undone, like the Velcro just isn't strong enough. On both, the zippers went to crap when riding without a jersey over top. Even if you spray them down very well. Any thoughts on the Alpinestars Bionic Pro Jacket? What do you wear and does it breathe well while still offering enough protection?
  5. I was riding yesterday & crossing a man-made river bed that was a little slimy I guess. The bike slid out when I hit power band & ate it on my left knee, & nothing else. Well my knee is swollen as a mother & I'm hoping it's not a fractured kneecap. So this puts into perspective for me, maybe I should get some riding protection gear. In everyone's opinion, what are some good knee guards that aren't really expensive (broke college kid problems). & what are some problems you have with wearing them. Pros & Cons. Thanks!
  6. gday yesterday while riding i went over the bars and turns out iv broken my wrist im pretty sure it was due to the bar busters as thr plastic has broken aswsell has this happened to anyone else.
  7. Hey guys, i'm in the market for some knee braces and i'm wondering what are you guys using? I've had EVS vision that I quickly sold. Tried some 5 years old asterisks and obviously they were not fitted for me but they were very unconfortable and I rode the last 2 years with some Thor force. Those last one lacks protection, the back velcro straps can hurt quickly and i'm pretty sure i can find a better protection and better comfort out there? So anyway i'm lost with all the brands, tech and reviews i've read around. I'm finally interested in the evs rs8/9 as a compromise. wise choice you think? Do you guys ride with braces or knee guard? It's not really a matter of budget as i could afford some high end braces on the second hand market, it's really a comfort issue (my experience, but maybe i'm wrong too) any help on that matter will be apreciated. thanks guys.
  8. I have never worn riding gear except for a good helmet....most of my past riding is local and street. Untill recently I would not wear a visor, let alone a shield on my bike. (I had a windshield on my truck and snow machine) Anyways that being said... its time for a little gear. I am most concerned about my knees and shins. What do you suggest for leg protection without compremising freedom of movement.... (baby steps)
  9. I mean really! The older I get the more gear I find necessary to save myself from permanent or severe injury. I've never timed how long it takes, but it takes so long to suit up with all the gear that sometimes I find myself not riding as planned just because its a pain to suit up! I'm planning on going riding after work, but we'll see. In no particular order: Polypropylene socks Boot socks Knee guards Boots Elbow protection Jockstrap Body armor Neck brace Riding pants Riding jersey Gloves Helmet Goggles Hydration pack or fanny pack Sheesh!🤣
  10. Boots have shin guards, why are they doubled up? and does anyone know of a good pair of knee pads that don't have shin guards, or pants with good knee protection (even better!)? I ride trails, not mx. Just wondering, I did a search and seems most people tuck the shin guard into the boot. I've always rode with them outside the boot and my pants (probably to some laughter) but it feels weird to have shin guards inside my boots.
  11. I have taken a great liking to riding without anything covering my core. Am I tempting fate by doing so? Does anyone else ride without any chest protection? I was reading about Nathan Wood. Granted I am not jumping table tops, but it got me thinking about even slow moving falls and hits to the chest...
  12. I personaly have never worn a necbrace, so i was wondering who wears em' and who doesnt? Is it just ignorance that makes most people not wear them or is their other reasons? Ofcourse theirs pro's to wearing em' what are the cons?
  13. Curious what motorcycle gear others are wearing for different riding on the LRP. I'm in need of some summer gear and want a DS helmet too. I just started to look around, for now here is what I use... Spring/Fall Icon 1000 Chapter jacket in grey. Very high quality piece, love this jacket. Couple different pair of gloves depending on temps. Winter Firstgear Kilimanjaro Jacket, nice and warm. Tourmaster Synergy 2.0 heated gear: Jacket liner, pant liner and leather gloves. Firstgear Overpants, I only wear these on the longer rides. A few pair of fleece lined jeans and cargo pants. Summer I want to pick up a new textile/mesh jacket for those hot days. Since I ride 90% street anyway maybe just a mesh street jacket? I'm down to two helmets, an old Shoei RF800 and a new Bell Star Rally Red with monochromatic shield. Unless I'm going to leave my helmet on the bike then I will take the Bell, the auto tinting shield works perfectly, WAY better than some cheaper glasses that I have had that do that. Now am looking to add a DS helmet, maybe the Arai XD-4? Funny thing is I have been riding street for 22 years and had the same leather jacket until 2 years ago when I started to get better gear. I always got a new helmet every 5-6 years but that was it really. I have to say having nice gear really makes the ride for me, never really noticed it until recently though. Anyway, please share what you have or plan to get, and any advice on DS helmets would be good too. Thanks! 👍
  14. I consider myself a safe rider, when I go out for a trail ride on my 200 xc-w I always have lots of Riding gear on. I'm currently saving money to get myself some good knee pads and a total chest protector, you know, one of those with the sleeve c/w elbow/forearm pads. I always have my helmet, pants, gloves, and alpine stars neck brace on. I never jump my bike, but I always have my neck brace on because all of our trails are 2-way trails frequently used by atv's and side-by-sides. I frequently ride on fire roads too and always use my neck brace in case of a collision with a vehicle. I like to play it safe, wether I'm going fast or slow. I get some flak from other riders about "looking cool", some people think I just want to look like a pro rider ( I'm far from it), I just want to be protected like one! Any thoughts on this? Is wearing a neck brace trail riding silly?
  15. I'll be putting plenty of miles on my yz this summer and am looking for some tips for riding gear. I currently have a helmet, gloves, riding pants and a jersy. I defiantly want to start wearing riding boots, what's a decent inexpensive brand/model? Also, should I invest in a chest protector and/or knee pads? If so what would be the best for trail riding? I don't race so I'll be be ripping up trails and big sand pits, any info would be awsome, thanks!
  16. Not that kind. So the Blue Hills enduro really kicked my ass. A couple of hard falls right away mixed with humidity and I was a sloppy, overheating foot dragging mess of a rider. I'm trying to find the right mix of protection to comfort. Seems like the really good guys aren't wearing that much. Problem is, I'm not that good. Other problem is, I got so hot so fast that it made me make more mistakes. Here's my gear: MX Boots Fox Titan knee pads (not giving up knee pads) Russell padded compression football shorts (probably heavier than I need) Fox Titan armor jacket (saved lots of bruises but suffocating) Klim G4 helmet (very light and great airflow - no problem here) Klim Dakar pants/jersey (good quality but not as much airflow as I was hoping) Changes? Lower body: Lighter duty or standard compression shorts Upper body: Standard type roost guard Conservatively sized elbow pads I could be in better shape but I don't really feel that's the problem. I get significant exercise every other day and am 170lbs 5'10". Any suggestions on the right balance or my ideas on changes? Reading a lot of stuff online but wanted some local advice since we ride the same trails and there are a good number of C riders here. Thanks.
  17. I recently got a fox titan sport jacket. It has front and back protection as well as full arm protection (forearm, elbow and shoulder). I'm wondering if anyone has the same thing or something similar and what do you wear over top of it? I tried on an xl jersey, which fit but was just a little snug over the armour(mostly on the arms). Should I just go to a bigger jersey? Or is there another option I haven't seen. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
  18. I took a hard fall yesterday and my lower ribs are killing me. I have just a Thor chest protector. Does the body armor give more protection? Think I'm gonna go get some X-rays today
  19. Hey there, Recently got back into riding and have been gearing up. Replaced 2001 KDX200 w/ 2015 KTM 300cx. Old helmet with new Shoei VFX-W. Working on the rest... Was out this weekend and my knees paid a premium on some spills. My riding budget isn't exactly ready for the high end knee braces I have been reading about. Is there a budget pair of knee/elbows that the forums love? Right now I am riding with nothing and its getting risky. Looking to spend $150 for both to hold me over until ready for the fancy pantsy stuff. Thanks! Jim

    Top bike! heaps of power but manageable for beginners(if your not scared), suspension is great on hard dirt, gravel, sand, mud and whatever you can throw at it.<br />real tuff bike, mines been dropped down hills, on rock, in deep mud so many times i just pick it up and its fine.<br />great trail bike, would recommend!
  21. Hi, I currently ( and always have run chest protector/ roost deflectors) run a fox pro frame. I was on Instagram recently and noticed that none of the pros, offroad or MX, seem to wear them. Are they worth wearing or not? On a side note, does anyone have an alternate method of the Leatt Hands free hydration connector? I don't want to spend $30 on it.
  22. I'm looking into buying some new knee braces and i was wondering if anyone had any feed back on which ones to buy and which ones are not so good. I know allot of people that will complain about them sliding down their legs so if any one has solid feedback i would love to hear it.
  23. All, I"m sure a few of y'all have run into the scenario when you first put on a Leatt and decided it wouldn't work with your chest protector. So, I'm curious which models you went with. I know Leatt makes some specifically suited for this, but I'd like to get real world opinions on what has worked best for them. I ride trails with lots of loose stones but its also hot and I want to find a good compromise between protection and air flow. Thanks in advance!! GP
