3-Pack Skate Pads Will Have You Ready for the Skate Park
Wearing skateboard pads is essential for keeping you protected during your skating sessions. They are just as important as having a helmet and will help you avoid cuts, bruises and nasty injuries. Pads are a necessity for beginners but they are also recommended for more experienced riders who attempt higher risk stunts.
With 3-pack skate pads, this usually refers to pads for your knees, elbows and wrist. Getting a whole skate pads set has several benefits. It’s convenient to buy, the quality and size will match, and you will have a stylish and coordinated look. All you will need now is your helmet and then you will be ready to skate.
What Size Skateboard Pads Do I Need?
With skate pads, you are looking to get a tight, secure fit that does not squeeze too much. If you’re unsure about what size you will need, using a soft tape measure and the product’s size chart will help you find the right fit. However, remember that many pads come with Velcro straps, meaning that you can adapt the fit as you like. There’s a wide range of pads available, whether they are hard shell or soft shell, so how they fit can also depend on the individual product.
How to Clean Skateboard Protective Gear
It’s worth cleaning your skateboard pad set from time to time to keep them smelling fresh and getting rid of any bad odors. Most pads can be washed in the washing machine but it’s recommended that you use the delicate setting. Add some detergent and then let the wash remove the smells.
If you want to try to stop your pads from smelling, leave them to get air after use, or you can consider buying pads with moisture ventilation.
