Mountain biking can be a dangerous extreme sport, and crashes are a reality of developing your skills and riding. Wearing the right MTB protection can prevent the worst injuries, and even save your life. It doesn’t matter how experienced you are, accidents happen. Stay safe when out riding with the appropriate protection.

A correctly fitted helmet is a really basic and important accessory. Choosing one with the right level of protection for the type of riding that you do is essential. Full face style helmets offer the best protection for downhill or techy hardcore enduro riding, whilst lighter cross country or trail helmets have better ventilation for long rides.
Body armour isn’t just for medieval knights, hard shell abrasion resistant materials can work to reduce impacts and spinal or abdominal injuries. The same applies to the often overlooked but simple back protector.
Knee and elbow pads are available in a variety of styles, offering a variety of protection and compression. Lightweight pads are ideal for trail riding, whilst hardcore heavier protection can be better suited to rougher riding and larger jumps.
Keeping your hands safe with gloves is a great way to protect your palms, and maintain your grip on the bars in wet weather. With varied thickness and padding it’s about finding a pair that work for you.
