We see bike checks all of the time, and occasionally some car or house checks, but this is the first safety gear check I can recall. Cami Harambour shows you all of the stuff she’s rocking to keep herself safe while riding. I think anything that could encourage anyone to be smart and use protective gear is a good thing, so salute to Cami for doing this! If you also think this is a good thing, you might want to show your appreciation by following her on Twitter and Instagram.
Sure, the chest protector really isn’t what you need unless you are blasting the Mega Ramp, but these new knee and shin pads from TSG> look pretty dialed. Here’s a little info on this new VEP line they sent through…
“TSG INTRODUCES VEP
Swiss action sports protection brand TSG uses new visco-elastic material for bike soft protectors
Soft is the new hard; however, just jumping on the bandwagon would have been too easy for TSG. Instead, the Swiss protection gear brand aimed at combining the benefits of soft materials with the ones of hard materials. TSGs brand new VEP line offers a super accurate fit with supreme wearing comfort, outstanding damping capabilities and great flexibility, while providing reliable protection against penetrating objects.
TSG uses the new VEP material for its knee and elbow soft protectors of the current spring 2012 collection. Profiting from the new material technology are the Nose Dive Timo, 2nd Skins, Kneeguard Task, Kneeguard Slim, and Frag Shirt Advanced.
Soft and pre-shaped 3D protection pads adapt to the wearers body features and anatomy through body heat, and they dont slip either. This is achieved through TSGs famous horseshoe shape, which entirely wraps the upper elbows and knees.”
