Junior Skating Protective Gear for Roller & Inline Skating
Junior protective gear is a prerequisite for inline and roller skating. Getting wheels under the feet is a thrilling experience for kids and teenagers, but it comes with the risk of falling, and a bad crash can spoil the motivation to learn and to grow in the sport. For this reason, good quality junior skate pads and head protection are vitally important for those who have found the inspiration to try out some action on wheels.
How to Choose the Right Protective Gear for My Kid?
Taking falls on either knees, elbows, or wrists is a common cause of injuries for kids and juniors on inline skates. Falling on the head doesn’t occur as often, but the injuries that the child might suffer are severe. Therefore, the right protective gear for your kid includes a set of protection pads and a kids skate helmet that protects the back of the head, since there is a risk of falling backward - especially on quad roller skates.
To get the right size protective pads for your kid, refer to the size chart for the specific model. The same goes for the helmets, measure your kids’ head circumference, and choose the size that fits. Remember to check our guide How to Wear Your Helmet.
And now to the fun part: We all know that the visual appeal of a piece of equipment is essential to getting the young ones to really embrace new gear. The manufacturers know this as well, so in our selection, you’re spoiled with choices of vibrant colors and designs to encourage kids and teenagers to embrace their passion for skating while staying safe!
