Which hip protector best suits your needs?_ ARK HIP PROTECTOR LINE-UP

There's no need to give up on challenges just because it hurts if you make a mistake in practice.

I'm sure everyone wants to get better at snowboarding.However, mastering higher-level techniques requires repeated "trial and error."And if you make a mistake, you will suffer considerable damage to your body, even on snow.
There may be some people who hate practicing because they think, ``If I make a mistake, it hurts!'' and even though they want to improve, they end up giving up and thinking, ``I'm fine with what I'm doing now.''
If you are such a person, please try wearing a protector and try practicing.
The extent of the damage will vary greatly depending on whether you are wearing it or not.
By covering and supporting your butt firmly with a protector even when you rest on the snow, you can even make a difference in how cold you feel when riding the lift.
Protectors are the perfect item to enjoy snowboarding even more, so there's no reason not to use them.
