Skiing is fun. Ski injuries aren't. Good quality ski protective gear can keep you safer on the slopes
Skiing is thrilling, fun, and a great activity for so many different people. You can take it easy on green runs or completely push the limits doing freestyle skiing or bumping around in the terrain park. But there is a danger inherent in zipping down the slopes. Falls, collisions with other skiers, or hidden obstacles like rocks or logs can cause minor or major injuries that can keep you off the mountain. We offer a full range of ski protective gear, like ski helmets
, ski knee pads
, ski padded shorts and pants
, ski body armor
, ski goggles
, and more.
What's the most important piece of skiing protective gear?
Without question, a high quality ski helmet
should be the first piece of ski safety equipment you purchase. After a ski helmet, we strongly recommend ski knee pads
. Knee injuries account for approximately 25% of all ski injuries. These are frequently ACL-type injuries. A good pair of quality knee pads can offer support and stability when you twist or pivot rapidly as well as when you fall.
Depending on where and how you're skiing, other ski protective gear to consider includes:
- Ski goggles: Good quality ski goggles provide protection from the sun (UV rays and glare), driving snow, and the miscellaneous tree branch, making your runs more enjoyable! Plus, ski goggles won't fall off.
- Ski padded shorts or pants: You're going to fall. Although you're not likely to fall onto your butt, ski padded shorts offer hip padding that definitely will help protect your hips/hip pointer - a key impact area when you ski.
- Ski body armor: For the park and freestyle skiers, as you ramp up your skill level and try new and more difficult tricks, you'll need to protect more of your body. Consider a piece of ski body armor to protect your shoulders, back, arms, chest, and ribs.
