Atom Elite 2.0 Knee Pads
Atom Gear - Roller Skate Protective Gear
Inspired by the sport of Roller Derby, Julie Glass, AKA Atomatrix, recognized the need for dedicated derby protective gear, which she felt could raise the level of play. “The sport of derby is growing rapidly and while nearly all equipment associated with it has evolved, protective gear has been left behind. Early on, Derby adopted existing aggressive and skate boarding protective gear. Now however, skaters have advanced their skills and coaches have evolved game strategies to the point where protective gear must keep up. As the fastest growing female sport in the world, Derby deserves protective gear specifically designed for derby.”– Atomatrix
