Gday everyone, I am looking at revamping some of my road gear to suit my tard style riding. At the moment, i currently wear a pair of kevlar jeans and have a textile style jacket with very soft (basically useless) armour which covers my arms and back. Am i better off going a full leather jacket? I was considering some hard plastic style protection, similar to MX protection to wear underneath a jumper as my speeds won't be extreme in the vent of a off...Tard aint to good for much over 100km/h. So yes! that is my dilemma, interested in what all you other road riders wear, tard riders or not i believe it will still be relevant to help me make my decision. So is the mx style protection a good choice? I am thinking, something with decent back/chest protection, as well as elbow/arms and knee pads. Will these hold up well enough in the event of a slide along the road or will the plastic armour just melt away... Opinions awaits.
