Helmet and Facial Protection
With players facing full power shots and skating at higher speeds, concussion prevention and facial protection are a core part of your protective gear.
Shoulder Pads or Padded Shirt
Inline Padded Shirts are designed specifically for the breathability, mobility and performance needs of the sport, and often serve as a much more environment-appropriate alternative to traditional shoulder pads.
Elbow and Shin Pads
Protecting your arms and legs not only reduce the injury you can receive in the event of a fall, collision or impact; but padding also reduces the likelihood of one of your limbs accidentally injuring another player in high-intensity battles.
Many companies manufacture high-protection hockey gloves with improved ventilation built specifically for inline hockey. These will improve the overall comfort of your hands during the game.
Inline Hockey Skate
Inline skates are designed with the ventilation and weight reduction best suited to our sport, building on the comfort and performance the warmer environments need, as well as compensating for the weight of the chassis and wheels.
A core necessity of the indoor inline game. Indoor wheels provide greater traction, grip, control and stability; designed specifically for the lower-friction sport court and ice court surfaces that are typical in indoor roller arenas. Using the correct wheels reduce the chance of injury from slippage or losing and edge during an important maneuver.
Hockey Pants or Inline Girdle
Similar to the Shoulder Pads/Padded Shirt, the Inline Girdle is better designed for the needs of the game and provide more mobility and breathability while still retaining protection in core areas. With puck and ball impacts being of lower velocity than an ice puck, protection is concentrated on the hips and tailbone for fall injuries.
One key advantage of playing indoor inline hockey is being able to use full-composite sticks without fearing the same durability loss as grinding your carbon twig on asphalt. This allows you to maximize performance, energy transfer and puck feel, contributing to harder shots and lighter hands.
Two-Piece Stick with ABS/Wood/Composite Blade
If looking for better lifespan in your stick, a two-piece setup with a shaft and blade is just for you. Two separate components allows replacement upon breakage of either the shaft or blade, as well as being able to use your stick on both indoor and outdoor surfaces if an ABS or Wood blade is preferred.
For those using Girdles, an inline pant serving as a "coverall" helps keep things tidy, as well as keeping everything in place against your body.
