D3o Safety Gear: See It to Believe It!

What can I say. I don’t have time to do much more than work and trikke and spend time with friends and family. I’m spending more time than ever with the friends and family who trikke. I’ve been online a lot tonight because I needed to get some more safety gear and discovered — D3o! Check out the video. Talk about revolutionary! This stuff is amazing.

I’ve been trikking all winter and using my trikke more than either of my cars. It can get pretty crazy on the roads, especially during rush hour. I ALWAYS wear my helmet because it’s not cool to make the people you love most identify your body at the morgue or change your diapers for the rest of your vegetative life. But I think I’m going to try one of these D3o and dyneema hats and see if I feel safe.

Dyneema is the strongest fabric in the world and D3o looks like the most incredible protection ever invented. They should make bullet proof vests out of D3o and dyneema. If the dyneema and D3o hats are as light and comfortable and temperature controlled as they say, even in the Florida heat, I’ll be very happy. I’ll have a chin strap added before I use it though because I’ve already read a couple of bad things about the hats flying off in a crash if there’s no tie. I have a friend who plays pro ball. Maybe I’ll get him to smack me with a bat a few times and see how that goes.

I just ordered these D3o knee pads and D3o elbow pads and I know I’ll be using D3o for this kind of safety gear from here on out.

Technology really is amazing. Wish they had this stuff when I was a kid learning to skateboard. It would have saved me and my parents a few trips to the emergency room.

Everyone who uses HPVs is putting their life in danger almost every time they ride. It’s gotten even worse since people started driving and texting or driving and watching porn. Stay safe!

    I wish I had this when I was breaking up with my girlfriend. She threw an encyclopedia at my head and I was going to the chiropractor for three months after.
