Ok, so I’ve threads on helmets, gloves, elbow and knee pads, wrist guards and all manner of armored clothing. What about shoes? As I ride more, I am getting foot fatigue. What are people’s preferred foot gear? I have been typically using flat bitten Puma’s or similar shoes since they seem to be grippy. A few times I’ve ridden in dress shoes due to work and that was better than expected.
I'm looking at getting a pair of these for winter riding and fall protection: https://zackees.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/glove-winter-info-bubbles.jpg I love that they can be used to signal traffic about turns. Here in Texas people don't know what the hand signal for stop is let alone for a left turn. lol. The regular Zackee gloves are bike gloves so they don't cover your finger tips. I'm hoping this full hand one will protect my hands and fingers in a fall. I haven't fallen much off my euc but I know it's only a matter of time until I do. The only thing I don't like about these gloves is that they look bulky in the picture and they may be too warm here since they're fleece lined. I'll let ya'll know how they work.
I was looking for recommendations for a headlamp that would fit well on my helmet (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00O5E72KI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1). Ideally the headlamp would be rechargeable, have different light modes (like strobe effect) and also a rear light for added visibility. Here's one I've found on Amazon, but before purchasing I wanted to try and get some feedback from the forum to see what others may be using or have for input. Thanks! https://www.amazon.com/Mifine-Waterproof-hands-free-headlight-Rechargeable/dp/B016Q8G9OU/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1495632717&sr=8-4&keywords=headlamp+biking
I bought some wrist guards finally, because I am a guitar player and I can't keep taking chances with my hands. So I purchased my wrist guards, typical standard ones and as soon as I tried the first trick they forced me on to my elbow instead. With basic stiff wrist guards you can cause a fracture further up the arm as well some finger injuries. I found these, they're $30. I wanted these but they go up so high and most of all they are about $65. Fractures further up the arm are a real hazard with the typical style. So this could be the ticket. Not sure. This is the footage of me falling onto my elbow.
