If I knew I was going to crash, I wouldn't ride.

1) padded compression shorts
2) Knee and elbow protection and shoulder pads
3) back and chest protector

this season I think I'm going to get a hit-air vest as well
but then you're talking this kinda crashing...

kevlar gloves, motoport kevlar suit with full armor, a good fitting full face helmet, some offroad MX boots and a Hit-Air air vest.....But honestly if I knew I was gonna crash. I wouldnt be riding. I'd be at home crashed on the couch.

I'd wear what I always wear:
Klim Adventure Jacket
Klim Adventure Pants
Leatt neck Brace
Arai XD helmet
Sidi Crossfire boots
Held Thrux gloves
Klim Tactical shorts

Because you never know when your going to crash or get run over by a large vehicle.

"I'd wear my truck."

I'm with him!

But for real advice you can't beat Motoport. The best part is that it's fitted to YOU and if you ever wreck it they will fix it for free. When you consider the price versus the life and function, it's a good value.

$10 head, $10 helmet? If you study the Hurt report, you will find that injuries to the head are the most frequent cause of death, but 90% of those fatal head injuries would have been prevented by the cheapest DOT approved helmet. The top level helmets now available will protect your head very well, but the 18 wheels on the semi will make a real messy stain out of the rest of you.

Yet again KLIM

I would now wear my KLIM Latitude. used to have and still do have as my back up a KLIM Traverse but we, as in my partner and I got the Latitude for just that little extra road protection. We will be reviewing the suit soon on our blog from a grrls perspective but I hope guys will get something out it too.

In my last good bin a year ago, I was wearing my ideal gear. Flipped my GSA into a field from 60mph, me tumbling down the grassy roadside. No bruising, broken bones, etc. Probably lucky, but I was fine, besides grass stuffed into the strangest places!

Shoei Multitec Helmet, Rukka Armas suit, Knox Aegis Back protector + chest protector, Revit Winter Gloves (something near the top of their range), Alpinestars SMX-R boots etc.

Not many pics (usually riding or taking the photos), but here's one with me in middle:


If you're on a budget and don't want to spend that much, I'd suggest the best Revit Suit you can afford, which gives you a reasonable all weather suit, but couple it with a good quality but cheap rain jacket and some heated gear.

If I knew and I had to ride? I guess I'd see if I could fit my Juggernaut under my Badlands. And see if I could still get the Omega neck brace on.
