Snowboarding protection is now recommended, worn and endorsed by all the entire snowboarding community. Snowboarding is a high adrenaline and high impact sport that involves speed and the risk of injury. Snowboard protection is now highly advanced it is tested and designed in collaboration with snowboarders, bikers and material manufacturers. Snowboard padding and impact protection takes many of its design features from the bike and motor markets. The impact shorts and helmets now available are comfy and offer incredible protection where you really need it.
Snowboarding protection is now more advanced and even better at providing impact resistance where you need it. From the early days of high adrenaline sports impact protection was seen as important but not a requirement. For this reason older snowboard protection including helmets and shorts were often uncomfortable and poorly designed. As the sport has grown so has the demand for better equipment that performs brilliantly and looks good. Snowboarding protection now helps beginners master their first turns right the way up to huge kicker jumps or rail slides. Professional snowboarders have led the requests for impact protection to allow themselves to push the limits even further. This development in helmet, wrist and impact protection has been passed onto the seasonal snowboarder.
