The 187 Pro Knee Pads Review
The 187 Pro Knee Pads Review - I went and bought a pair of "187 Pro Knee Pads". Wow! These 187 pads are the best I have ever owned. They fit perfectly tight and have never slipped even a little. I routinely had to adjust and re-adjust the TSG pads all day. I have numerous knee scrapes where the TSG pads slid down during a bail out and my knee got scraped. The 187 Pro Knee Pads wrap higher up my leg over the knee so there is no way for the pads to slip down. I highly recommend them!!
Triple 8 Park Elbow and Knee Pads
Triple 8 Park Elbow and Knee Pads Review 2 pack review - These are good pads for most park and smaller ramp skating. The padding is sufficient for glancing blows and sliding on the knees. But watch out for direct impact. If you do Vert or Pool skating, you’ll want something with more protection and impact absorption. Priced around $40.00 a set, these pads are also affordable.

TSG Evolution Skateboarding Helmet Review - The TSG Evolution skateboarding helmet is, hands down, a great helmet for skateboarding. It wraps around your head just a little more than a lot of other skate helmets, adding just a touch more protection and comfort, and making the helmet look a little cooler. The TSG Evolution is available in a zillion colors and finishes, complies with CPSC safety regulations. Read more in the The TSG Evolution skateboarding helmet review!
Skateboarding TSG Knee/ Shin Pads – TSG Force III
TSG Force III knee / shin pads give a great amount of front and side padding in a compact design that doesn’t look too ridiculous. Plus, with Velcro and clip straps to hold the pads on, they’re more comfortable and convenient than the “slip on” style. And for an added bonus, the plastic front plate is Velcroed on, so you can pop it off and replace it without having to bust out tools.
Pro Tec Ace Helmet Review
The Pro-Tec Ace Signature helmets are almost perfect in every way - comfortable, advanced SXP technology gives the helmet lasting durrability, and the pro style and signature aspects make the Pro-Tec Ace skateboarding helmets a great choice.

Pro Tec B2 Helmet Review
The Pro-Tec B2 skateboarding helmet is a fusion of styles and technology. The Pro-Tec B2 skateboarding helmet has the shape of the Classic Pro-Tec helmet, but packed with all of Pro-Tec's latest design and technology impovements. Just like the Pro-Tec Ace helmet, the Pro-Tec B2 skate helmet comes in four styles, each keyed to a pro and including a sticker sheet of that pro's sponsors. Read this review for more.
Pro-Tec Classic Helmet
The Pro-Tec "The Classic" helmet is everything you need in a skateboard helmet. Pro-Tec has been making quality helmets and pads for skateboarding and action sports for years, so you can trust them with something as critical as your head. The Classic helmet is a re-definition of the "Classic Skate", and sacrifices some comfort for more protection. If you aren't too worried about extra special features on your helmet, but you want one you can trust, read more about The Classic by Pro-Tec...
