Supermoto/Offroad GEAR: Need recommendations - April 27, 2011, 10:37 AM

Fellaz,

I have dirt pants and sumo pants. What I'm looking for are both knee protection and upper body protection. For dirt and summit point, I plan to buy a Beta jersey. For street, I'll wear a street jacket. I need the shit for under the jersey and for when we go to taskers gap.

I'm thinking A* knee braces. How about upper body? Anywhere I can go try on and buy locally? Not a lot of time for fucking around since I want to be ready for the Tasker's outing.

THANKS, not in advance, but right now, at this moment, as you read and contemplate, because I really appreciate it even if you can't offer much advice!

hmm with such a short timeframe craigslist won't offer too much help, I have a



that I got a sick deal on, seems to work fine. If I went to buy a new one I'd get the one that extends to the elbows and forearms too though. People say they don't offer too much protection but I've taken spills in the dirt in mine and been alright, I wear my street jacket for the elbow/arm protection

I wish I could help but I am just sporting my off road gear at summit which I will most likely regret. I wear the usual mx gear with knee guards and elbow guards usually. I know six six one makes some sick upper body protection.

Upper body, Donovan wears:
:: SixSixOne Protection ::

Knees:
https://www.asterisk.com/secured.php

Neck:
EVS Sports - Products

We are considering going to Alpinestar for neck protection next. We did look at Leatt and I think it's almost a toss up between A* and Leatt in that it's whichever one feels more comfy and works with the 661 ballistic jersey.

If you're there on Fri, come find us and you can look at them in person. Green Excursion, KTM 250 #469, Line-X ez-up. Probably will not have our Willow Row Racing trailer.

Thanks, yeah I'm definitely getting something with elbow and forearm protection.

Not sure about neck brace yet. I'll probably postpone since I'm not gonna be going big yet for a while.

I think someone on here had a bionic pressure suit for sale? I remember seeing it not long ago, not sure if they would still have it or not though.

One thing about the EVS neck brace is that it's only $175. A* and Leatt are $300+.

If you want to just grab something to get by with while you mull over all the options I have a Thor chest protector, and a pair of shin & elbow guards you can borrow for the day. Only issue will be getting them.

I'm located just northwest of Taskers Gap but I'll be at Summit on the 8th. If you want I can throw them in the truck and you can pick them up on your way past Summit and drop them off on your way back, or if you'll be at Taskers until dark I can swing by there and get them at the end of the day.
