Cycling is a fun pastime, but it is important to stay safe. This is particularly the case for those of you who intend to go off-road with your bikes, go mountain biking and more. Of course, it's possible to get into an accident anywhere on a bike, which is where protective clothing becomes very important.
Here at Bikester, we've got an extensive range of MTB protective gear to keep you safe and reduce the probability of an injury when you're out and about.
Keeping your joints safe
The knees do a lot of the work when it comes to cycling. So, with that in mind, it's important to keep them protected and supported.
Knee protection is particularly important when travelling on more slippery or loose surfaces where you could come off your bike. With that in mind, here at Bikester, we have a range of different knee pads and protectors to prevent injury. Some of the key features available in these pads include:
- Thin and compact for easy storage
- Hardshell protection
- Stretchy and flexible to move with the body
- Viscoelastic polymer to absorb impact
- Breathable material
Similar to these knee protectors, we have elbow protectors to keep those joints safe too. With abrasion-resistant coverings, a bicep gripper and a foam elbow cover, these give you comfort without reducing your ability to bike at speed.
Finally, we also offer a range of different shin protection options too. These come in the form of longer-length knee guards that are pliable while riding yet harden on impact. With a pre-shaped design, these give an ergonomic fit for maximum comfort and protection.
Covering your eyes
MTB protective gear doesn't just cover the joints, but all parts of the body. In order to protect you from flying dust, gravel and so on that you're likely to encounter on a mountainside, we also have a range of face gear.
To protect your eyes, you can choose from a wide range of different eyewear options. Wrap-around goggles are the perfect option when going at speed, especially if you're worried they might come off.
Glasses can be great for more casual rides and provide a stylish look while keeping your eyes protected. Better still, you can grab sunglasses too and ensure your eyes are protected from the glare if it's a sunny day.
Be seen and be safe
Finally, it's also important to remain alert to the fact that accidents can be caused by someone else. With that in mind, it's important to be visible when biking, no matter where you are, be it a road or a mountain.
At Bikester, we have a range of different reflectors to ensure that you can be seen on the mountainside. These come as small standalone items that you can wrap around an arm or leg, or come incorporated as part of the protective wear.
From joints, legs and eyes to full-body protective gear for your chest and neck, we have it all. Check out our full selection of MTB protective gear on Bikester today, and bike in comfort and safety.
