HelmetHelmet is compulsory during races, according to federal rules and for most organizers. Choose one with an efficient and precise occipital adjustment, as helmets used by cyclists. Don't buy a helmet under 45 Euros, you could be disappointed and have a bad surprise about quality.
GlovesMost of cycling gloves are very convenient. They don't protect against wrist's fracture but prevent from grazes and burns. Some brands such as Powerslide created inline-skating gloves which look like bike gloves with a embedded pad.
If you are not self-confident, use wrist-guards. Take care to choose good quality products, most of time, the cheapest wrist-guards do not protect really well.
You can find hand sliders too...
SocksFrequently neglected, they protect feet from irritations. Cotton socks can be used to soak up perspiration. Avoid nylon socks. Skaters using custom boots don't wear socks or very thin socks.
It is possible to get double layers socks. The layers rub one against the other one and so preserve the foot.
AnkleIf your carbone shoes hurt your feet or if you bleed after each training session, there is a solution : Neoprene ankles. No more cuts to the tendons, no more hurts to your malleolus. Henceforth, you can ride on long distances without pain. You can express your full potential. Do not choose it too much tightened, the foot swells during the effort.Text : Alfathor
