Grumpy Old Men - DUANE PETERS COLLECTION BY POCKET PISTOLS


The Master of Disaster


 
You can thank Duane Peters for skating the way you do. You can thank Duane Peters for defining skateboarding in the late 70’s and early 80’s, and setting it on its current course. He took the elegant freestyle of the 1970s and shoved it through a meat grinder. He took skateboarding “Off The Wall” and went balls-to-the-wall. He put the snarl in gnarl, the punk in rock, the f#%k in you.


First to do the Death loop in 78, layback rollout, sweeper, Indy air, acid drop, invert revert, and much more. Duane Peters isn’t a relic – he didn’t invent the Indy Air and disappear, retire, or fade away. Pushing 50, DP has been charging as hard as ever, skating, touring, slamming, and getting right back up to do it again.


Isn't it about time YOU grabbed one of these planks and showed those young punks what it's all about!

TSG X VEP KNEE PROTECTION - Start at the knees please!

Knee protection is essential to ensure you are mobile for many years to come. You will hear a lot of older folk 'wishing' they had used it when they were younger.

In fact, most people only opt for using protective gear 'after' they have suffered an injury. "OH! I smashed my head… better start wearing a helmet"… Duh!

Prevention – and protection… is better than a cure, and TSG has all your protection needs covered.

TSG stands for TECHNICAL SAFETY GEAR, so I'm going to give you a stack of technical info on our 2013 range of  VEP KNEE PROTECTION

So much info it may feel like you knocked your head and need a helmet… here we go!


 So… exactly what is VEP and why do we use it?


VEP is a great new protection foam that we are using from now on in some of our pads.

It offers a super accurate fit with supreme wearing comfort, outstanding damping capabilities and great flexibility, while providing reliable protection against penetrating objects.

Profiting from the new material technology are the 2013 FORCE III+ KNEE PAD, TAHOE KNEE GUARD & DERBY KNEE PAD
Soft and pre-shaped 3D protection pads adapt to your body features and anatomy through body heat, and they don’t slip either.

This is achieved through our horseshoe shape, which entirely wraps your upper elbows and knees.

VEP is visco-elastic and thus, can handle multiple impacts. After an impact or shock from the outside, the protection pad returns to its original shape while retaining all of its functionality features.

In case of a slow application of a force, the VEP material absorbs the impact energy through gentle cushioning, whereas in case of a crash – meaning high-velocity force effect – the foam yields only slightly.

Why? Because the air in the cell structure remains locked in within the foam and thus, cannot escape so quickly. This is how a relatively thin and extremely lightweight material like VEP offers premium damping performance.

Plus, VEP reacts without time delays in order to minimize strain on the body.

VEP’s 10 years lifespan is considerably longer than the one of other foam pads. 


And VEP can handle temperatures of up to 120°C, guaranteeing optimum protection even when your equipment is left in the car behind the rear window.

In order to prevent sharp stones or other objects from penetrating the foam in case of a fall, we use an additional elastic synthetic insert for all VEP pads.

The insert is extremely flexible to avoid a limitation of the soft protector’s mobility.

The synthetic insert is Velcro-fixed onto the VEP pad and can easily be removed from all protectors which feature a removable VEP pad.

And TSG team rider Sam Pilgrim will give you the visual rundown on how VEP works, it's features & benefits.

VEP pads are in stock and ready to ship straight out to you.
