Crash Tested Gear (Cycle Gear Jeans + Fulmer Jacket)


Recommended Posts

OK it's not like I wanted to test this stuff, but I can say if you choose not to wear gear, well good luck. I low sided today and slid probably 30-40 feet mostly on my back and chest, somehow momentum flipped me from my back to my chest.
I wear a pair of Cycle Gear Ironworks Jeans and a Fulmer mesh jacket. I wear gloves and boots also. All of my gear did exactly what it was designed to do. My jeans have a rip right below my right knee pad and my jacket has some tears in my right elbow pad and on the chest.
As I inspected my gear I can't imagine how much road rash I would have had in my knee, butt, back, chest, and elbow.

Glad your ok and the gear worked. How's the bike?
The bike is gonna be OK, it slid on the throttle side the whole way, there is a good shop that is gonna pick it up today or tomorrow

Do you happen to have pics of the aftermath ? Glad your ok !
Yeah I have a few, the gear really held up well, just a hole below the knee pad on the right side, tears on my elbow pads, and a couple holes in the front of the jacket
