Of course, protective equipment can in general not be a bad idea in any sport. We stock knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, as well as Slidegloves and helmets.
Knee pads are probably the most important component of protective equipment in longboarding and should be worn by any longboarding novice.
There are knee pads in two different versions. On the one hand with hard plastic shell to carry over the pants and as a further variant also a soft knee protector, without plastic.
The classic with knee protector with plastic shell clearly offers the most protection, but it limits the movement a little bit.
The pad without plastic can be worn under the pants and offers much more freedom of movement, but a little less protection.
The same protective equipment is also available for elbow protectors.
Slide Gloves are more for active use and not for the fall. With Slide Gloves, you'll learn sliding with the longboard much easier, as you can take a much deeper center of gravity
when your hands can slide across the floor while sliding. There are the Slide Gloves usually in Race or Freeride variants, where a Race Slide Glove usually has only one puck on the palm of your hand
and the Freeride Gloves also have 2 more small pucks, as well as at the fingertips.
