What protection should you use when stunt scootering, skating or longboarding? We explain this in detail in the article on our site (see the bottom of this article or click on the question mark above), here first some general information about protective equipment.
Protection is necessary to limit or prevent injury. All protection we offer is intended for recreational use and not for professionals. Make sure that the protection fits well and is comfortable, otherwise it will no longer be worn over time and will not function optimally. The fit and wearing comfort are therefore very important.
There are a number of ways to protect yourself when skateboarding and stunt scootering. Skaters and stunt pilots may wear a helmet and pads, knee and elbow pads, and spine protectors, among other safety equipment. When skating on public streets and sidewalks, skaters and stunt pilots should use caution and common sense, as well as the proper safety equipment for skateboarding and stunt scooters.
With our extensive collection of protective equipment you ensure your own safety and create a cool look at the same time! And that is of course also a bonus.
The most common injuries in skateboarding, inline skating, longboarding and stunt scootering are wrist injuries, knee injuries and head injuries according to the KNSB. So good wrist protection, knee protection and a helmet are definitely recommended. The helmet is considered so important that the KNSB makes a helmet mandatory for all their inline skating activities.
