Riding a motorcycle is inherently dangerous because you are personally exposed in the event of an accident. That’s why it’s important to get the right gear for the occasion. Armor and protective gear can keep you safe in an unfortunate incident.
We’ve carefully selected a number of great choices for motorcycle armor and related gear. While you should always choose to wear standard protective equipment such as a helmet along with a jacket and riding pants (or even a complete race suit) that include extra protection, it’s often a good idea to augment your existing setup with specific armor. What exactly are we talking about? Just take a look at the types of gear we have on this page:
Aside from motorcycle armor, we also have a number of braces. While they may not provide as much impact protection, they can add extra support to joints such as knees, elbows, ankles, wrists, etc. In a collision, braces may keep your joints from overextending or improperly bending.
Play it safe when you’re on your motorcycle. Pick up some of the protective gear and armor you see here. Hopefully you’ll never need it. But if you do, you’ll be very glad you have it.

Wish the upper set screws allowed rotational adjustment. XL was too small on the lower leg digging in and xxl needed all the shims to close the gap at the bottom of the upper. I'm considering modding the upper set screws to allow rotational adjustment of the adjustable upper to make a perfect fit. Placement of the upper straps seems low for me but overall so far so good.Read All Reviews

I really wanted to like these knee guards. True hinged, pivoting knee cups at this price is unheard of. The knee cup looks like it would provide outstanding protection. I discounted a point for the fact that they would not fit comfortably under my moto pants. Kept binding up, restricting my movement. I'd recommend these for anyone that wears very loose fitting riding pants and those that wear their knees guards outside the pants.Read All Reviews

Mid to late 80s amature raved then life got in the way. Now 46 and wanted to give my kiddos the opportunity to experience motocross. I bought all of us bikes and went to the track - kiddos were watching and I didn’t even make it a lap as my leg caught a rut and pop went the ACL & MCL. Determined to make it more than a lap I had surgery and rehab. Studied all the braces and went with the K4s for the ability to use for other activities. So far they have been great and will soon go out to the track to complete more than one lap. I haven’t been in a situation where I can say they saved my knees however, with knee braces on I feel a significant improvement in stability.Read All Reviews

I ordered a large on account I have a 15" knee and was on a fine line between med and large fit. I wear it with a knee brace sock and once you adjust it which will take a few rides it works great, I'm 5'9" 205 lbs and ride at amateur level great for mx woods and desert I've been riding since I was 13 off and on most of my life. Ive had knee surgery and still ride at 55 yrs old great price, great fit good buy at any ageRead All Reviews
