gaskets can also be worn without pads for any sport where you need
extra knee support. Gaskets should not be used for skating without knee
pads, as they provide stabilization but minimal impact protection, and
should only be used at your own risk for skaters who prefer to skate
without pads but want to support their knees. Gaskets cannot be worn
alone without knee pads in roller derby.
Sizes: XS, SM, MD, LG, XL - Sold as a Pair (set of 2)
Sizing generally matches the size of your 187 Pro Knee or Pro Derby Knee Pads.
Curve Alert! A lot of gear is sized for dude legs, not for curves. 187 Gaskets are designed to fit slim; we've found that buff roller derby ladies with muscular quads and larger thighs tend to fit in one size larger than their Pro Knee Pads. Pro Derby Knee Pads are sized a little smaller, so the same size across usually works. Or if your Pro Knee Pads already fit a little too loose, don't size up either. Call us if you have questions!
