Yes mate, It's good stuff but I had heard they had gone in to liquidation. They used to be based near me when I lived in the UK.


You used to see them at the shows and certain rounds of BSB.


I was wearing their jacket and jeans when I had a serious accident in 2010. Didn't save me from 6 broken ribs and a collapsed lung but it could have been a lot worse without it. The jeans were pretty shredded but the Kevlar remained intact. I did have some serious friction burns on my knees though.


The jacket faired OK although a sleeve did ride up giving me some road rash on my forearm. It would have been useable if the paramedics hadn't cut it off but I'm not complaining.


I think the only thing that would have saved me from the major injuries would have been a chest protector, regardless of what I was wearing. I smacked down heavily on my chest and slid down the tarmac. As I didn't and still don't wear one I can't blame the kit. I was also wearing a very expensive pair of Rukka gloves which shredded just as badly as the jeans although I was doing an impression of Superman and using my hands to try and slow me down.


Anyone who argues it is personal choice not to wear protective clothing has to ask themselves if they would choose to have the injuries I had or worse. 4 days in intensive care, 10 days in hospital, lifelong problems as a result of those injuries and one hell of a lot of worry and stress on your loved ones.
