I invented the concept of G Pads because I was frustrated with the fit + performance of my protective gear. Instead of enjoying riding, I was frequently preoccupied with readjusting my gear and complaining about how uncomfortable it was or putting it back on because it would not stay secure while riding. I decided to create products for the scooter community that solved problems, instead of complaining about them.
When Hunter came to me with his idea, I thought it would be a great opportunity to not only serve the action sports community with a protective + comfortable product, but it would provide him with the valuable life lessons of learning about business + leadership. As a registered nurse with a background in trauma and emergency medicine, I have seen hundreds of preventable injuries. I believe safety is number one. Protective gear that performs well is important for encouraging people to wear it and reduce their risk of injury. Let's create a safer scooter culture together!!!
