DH/FR Guys.

Lets see your armor!

Today was my last day at the local hill and I planned on going big, so I wore full armor.

Good thing to, the chest guard had a nice cut in it from my stem and the arm guards look kinda beat. I also landed pretty hard on my wrist and heard a crack, it hurt but I could still move it so I kept riding. Now it's swollen and sore, if it bugs me tommorow at school I _might_ go get it x-rayed.

Soon to be added to the lot are goggles, haven't gotten round to buying them (hell, I don't even have any money right now so I'll have to leave it for later. ) Sometime in the future I'll buy a pressure suit but for now what is on the picture will have to do.

much of the armour i wear while riding can be seen in this shot:


helmet is a 661 full bravo 2.
shin/knee guards are 661 race.
gloves in the shot are 661 mtx's, but i currently wear these:

661 gracia 2s.

i've also got a pair of older 661 race elbow/forearm guards for the rare trip up to ride DH, as well as a pair of these:

scott high voltage goggles.

Man, you guys both have the same avatar and are confusing me. Anyways.

I use Fox Launch Shin Pads, Giro Remedy Full Face, And Mace Gloves, in the process of getting body armor for DH use.
