​7 Protection continue to grow their range at an impressive rate. The Flex series introduced in 2015 will see the addition of a wrap fitting version that can be put on and removed without removing your shoes. The knee pad also gains a removable shin protector, making it a great option for riders wishing to use one pad for different types of riding.

New for 2016, the Flex suit is for riders looking for lightweight and comfortable upper body protection in a modular design. The backplate can be removed to make room for a hydration bladder, and there are several storage pockets in the rear for those looking to ditch their packs. 

Another all-new category for 7iDP is gloves. These are not rebranded Royal gloves, but rather specific, from-the-ground-up designs proper to 7iDP. 4 models are available, ranging from the top of the line Tactic to the lightweight Transition. Perforated palms made from AX Suede provide for good feedback on the grips in a durable package.

The Arctic glove provides a solution for wet and cold rides, and is the only glove not to feature a perforated palm.

The Tactic glove features extra rubber protectors around the base of the palm, perfect when you need extra landing gear after failing to keep the rubber side down.

7iDP's range of helmets gains new colors for 2016, some of which will become available mid-season.

Also new for 2016 is the 7iDP Ankle Brace. Designed around a flexible insert that stiffens up when cinched down with the laces, it provides a compression fit and extra support for the ankle, ideal for riding while recovering from injury, or for avoiding it in the first place.

To complete your top to bottom 7iDP get-up, socks are now available too.
