Get involved by Beee • January 8, 2013 Here we want to give you some tips about how you can participate in ‘skating safe’. Participating is easy. Riders You can start by always wearing your protective gear yourself Talk to your friends, if you see they don’t wear protection. Tell them why you think it’s necessary to wear protection Not only wear a helmet, wear it proplerly. Fasten your chin strap and make sure the strip is tight enough so it won’t come of. See more tips on this page. Downhill event organizers Obligate the use of full face helmets Obligate the use of back protectors Brands You set the example. Most brands are putting out videos to show their products and riders, so let your team riders always wear protective gear in videos. Media It might sound harsh but stop publishing videos where riders don’t wear (at least) a helmet. Lots of people read/look at what is published on your site/in your magazine.
