Do you guys (mostly late 30s to 40s) who dress up like Robocop to tackle the red at Glentress feel really uncomfortable, when wearing enough armour to go down Fort William with no brakes and being pelted by rocks fired from a challenger 2 tank???
Honestly, its mad, they have shin pads, elbow pads, forearm guards, 661 body armour and full face helmets, all covered with matching DH fox racing gear, do you not clatter your way up the hill, a pair of 661 soft knee pads should be all you need max, full face at a very big push!
All the gear - No idea springs to mind.
Why? Why? Why? you look ridiculous and everyone laughs at it, so much overkill for a simple man made piece of singletrack!
DH tracks and freeride parks fair enough. But the red???
