Re: What is this?!

You know, that sounds like giant slalom! I ski raced a lot growing up, and remember the odd sense of calm terror you feel as the ground drops out from underneath you.

What a feeling! Aim for the entrance of the next turn, keep your tuck, and blast over the edge! Then you wait until next week when the earth comes by for a visit to let your legs down.

It was so fun I never even felt self-conscious about wearing a leotard.

Sounds like a GDC meetup waiting to happen. Man, I hope that happens. It'd be nice to know somebody will be there to mock me in the forums the next day!

Re: What is this?!

I have a very similar EVS jacket for dirt riding. Not quite as much armor & it's all mesh in between the armor, it works great with a MX jersey over it or once it gets cold with an enduro shell. I have the EVS knee/shin guards for dirt also. Super impressed with the quality of their gear.

Re: What is this?!

I see guys in the summer wearing those protectors and shorts with knee pads. I guess they look cool, but I would rather have leather. I have slid right through a very think jacket before.

We were talking about wearing them UNDER good leathers. You crash in just the plastic & it would shred right away.

It's not the EVS G6 it looks similar but it's not it. If you look closely you'll see

Re: What is this?!

I can see some pics have a belly strap and some don't. Either way, what were you looking to do with this protection jacket/armored shirt?

Re: What is this?!

Does it make it cumbersome putting your leathers on? I have a pretty hard time putting them on with a back protector (doesn't help that both my shoulders are pretty jacked up.)

I just think it looks really cool, but I don't know if it's enough protection for summer riding
