Hi there, thought I would update you on a few new products available in Roller Derby Land.
#1. Smith Derby Knee Pads $119.99
I really like this new knee pad. The feed back I got from the skater was they felt snug and comfortable and they aren’t wide . They are very similar to the SOne Knee Pad in looks and feel.
In regards to impact protection for these roller Derby Knee pads was all positive. The Velcro system is strong and extremely adhesive so if fitted correctly will always be in place and the skater shouldn’t be pulling them up after a fall.
Features and Benefits include :
The shorter pad and flat knee cap both help to reduce bulk and increase mobility.
-Butterfly straps- A quick release system allows easy on and off.
-Removable foam *This gives you the option to be able to wash those stinky lil pads.
-Triple layer foam *Great for protection of those knees and recommended for comfort too!
-Double strap *Top and bottom straps to help secure the elbow pad so their is no movement or slippage. Used with higher grade elastic straps to help hold into place. The famous Scabs Adjustable Top Strap we have been known for since 1989! Great for adjusting for the perfect fit.
-Abrasion resistant material *Made with the top quality materials to give the best protection on the market.
-Removable Cap *Great for having the flexibility to replace the caps if worn down from so much skating! No need to buy a new set of pads once cap is worn down.
-These are available in sizes: Small, Medium, Large, Xlarge, XXlarge
#2. Triple 8’s NEW Junior Helmet. $99.99
Last weekend I took the Triple 8 Junior Helmets up to Epic Scrim with me to test them on the junior roller derby skaters. These helmets really have impressed me, they fit every junior skater I tried them on so well. All you have to do is adjust the dial located at the back of the helmet and it provides a secure snug fit. The chin strap offers a padded area pinch proof and for maximum comfort. The feed back I got back was “ohh I like this helmet and it’s so comfortable”. VFM = Value For Money because they come with extra liners for when the helmet becomes too small. They also come in various colours.
The Lil 8 lets the littlest riders wear the classic Triple Eight style in a new Dual Certified helmet. Perfect for bikers and skaters, it features kid-friendly features like an Adjustable Fit Dial System and pinch-proof buckle protector. So whether they ride a bike, skateboard or scooter, they can rock it like a pro!
