Industrial Anti-Vibration Gear for Extreme Recreational Enthusiasts

Impacto Vibration Reducing Personal Protection GearMy generation didn’t grow up with hover boards, rip sticks or fancy in-line skates but rather roller skates, skate boards and BMX bicycles.

As kids seeking an adrenaline rush, we would gather our bikes, skates and a tow rope. We would then tie the rope to the bike where the biker would pull one of us along the road on a board or pair of roller skates and the person who was towed the longest time was declared the winner.


Here's the deal. Asphalt or black top surfaces are very rough and when one is dragged behind it, heavy vibrations result. These vibrations quickly create a numbing or severe tingling effect along the feet that works its way up the calves. Eventually this effect causes one to lose sensation and ultimately self-control which often resulted in a nasty wipe out.

Back then, we didn’t have protective gear to prevent scrapes, bumps, impacts or vibrations available for us to wear. More often than not, the end result was typically a skin on pavement injury leaving one with severe scrapes along the hands and knees that stung for many days afterwards, and permanent scarring!

Fortunately today’s recreational enthusiasts have a variety of retail personal safety options such as padded anti-impact gloves, helmets and body padding which help offset injuries related to falls, vibrations and strains. While most of this gear is designed more for consumer recreational purposes, we have a line of commercial protective gear designed for heavy duty industrial tasks available for purchase.
