Harsh Skateboard Pads & Protection – Online UK Shop

Skateboarders always try to push themselves to the limit. They are always looking for ways to improve their skills and tricks so that by the next shredding session, they have something new and more exciting to do.

But with such challenge and type of extreme sport, the inevitability of accidents is also high. Even though many skilled skaters are not fond of wearing protective gear, it’s crucial to wear them for protection, safety and peace of mind. Harsh skateboard pads and protection products are among the most popular among skaters who practice wearing protective gear.

One of the many reasons why skaters hate wearing helmets and protection pads is because they are heavy – making their shredding a bit difficult and less enjoyable. This is what makes Harsh quite different from the rest because they make lighter helmets and more innovative protective pads.

Globally certified and suited for all types of sports, you will find some of today’s notable athletes wearing Harsh products including Nitro Circus star Ryan ‘RWilly’ Williams, MGP UK scooter riders Charley Dyson, 10-time British Inline Skating champ Jenna Downing, and Vic Tori Bee Team England Roller Derby skaters. Of course, the Harsh Team riders – Terry Price, Jared Colwell, Felix Rub and Bart Oskroba - get to wear and test the durability of these products.
