PROTECTIVE GEAR

Downhill races, Shuttle days and Skills sessions

Gravity encourages riders to wear appropriate gear to protect from injuries.

Gravity Downhill races, Shuttle days and Skills sessions

  • You must wear a fullface helmet (no cracks in it) and knee pads
  • At least a teeshirt on top (ie. no singlets)

We will not let you ride/race if you do not meet these requirements.

ADVICE

  • For club events we strongly recommend full legged pants and long-sleeved tops. We also strongly recommend you follow the MTBNZ guidelines for protective gear: i.e. elbow pads, full finger gloves and a neck brace.

For National-level events, you must adhere to the MTBNZ guidelines and these will be enforced by race commissaires and officials.

 

Club Enduro events

  • You must wear a helmet (no cracks in it) and knee pads
  • At least a teeshirt on top (ie. no singlets)

We will not let you ride/race if you do not meet these requirements. 

ADVICE

  • We recommend you consider wearing a fullface helmet, long-sleeved top and gloves (depending on the course).
  • Advice will be made available prior to each enduro regarding the suitable quantity of water and food recommended for the event.
