Thomas is one of the best all-round riders. There is nothing he can not ride. We are proud to welcome him to the FUSE team.
Fuse pads are well known, well loved and well used by riders all over the world. From pro riders to rookies our protection inspires those with confidence to take their riding to the next level. For 2015 our pads have had a serious makeover, with the addition of new design features, materials, technologies and have of course retained the ‘bullet proof’ quality they are best known for.
When redesigning the pads we focused on three key areas; comfort, durability and performance. Many of the pads now make use of Lycra, which offers incredible comfort and breathability, and at the same time a reduction in weight. The impact areas of the pads use a new super tough Neoprene and Cordura material for improved durability. The Echo series of pads feature the latest protection systems from SAS-TEC, makers of industry leading protection inserts that pass the highest motorcycle standards.
Without doubt the most important part of your body to protect is your head. This year we are proud to launch two completely new helmets, both have a deep fitting shape for maximum comfort and protection. The Delta series of helmets feature the latest in-mold technology making them 23% lighter than a typical hard shell design.
You may be riding in the depths of winter or the heights of summer but keeping a grip on your bars is always a challenge no matter what. Our new range of FUSE gloves offer fantastic comfort while retaining a fantastic level of grip and feel.
Whatever you do on your bike, Fuse is here to #SaveYourSkin.
The Alpha series pads form the entry level range, with the same trusted protection systems used in the older Classic defense line. Each pad has been updated to further improve the durability and comfort of the pad. To achieve this we have used new materials such as Duratex neoprene and dual layer Lycras as well as new strap designs. All aspects of protection are catered for with a wide range of models from ankle supports through to combo shin pads.
The Delta series has moved things on from the previous Full defense line, but still uses the proven DFS protection. These pads feature a fully updated design with a more comfortable and breathable Lycra back, and new strap designs combined with a grippy (sharkskin) inner section hold the pads in place like never before.
Brand new for 2015 is the Echo line. These pads are aimed squarely at the MTB rider, and thanks to the industry leading pad inserts from SAS-TEC they perform to the highest level. The Echo line feature various knee/shin combo designs all of which use an extremely durable CorduraTM face fabric to deal with the harsh terrain that comes with MTB riding.

Adding Kriss Kyle to the FUSE team was a no brainer. Kriss is the perfect definition of an all-terrain-shredder. Wether it be laying down technical street lines on a trip in some far corner of the globe, or shredding his backyard skatepark Unit 23 in Scotland, Kriss gives it is all and goes big no matter the setup.
Shane has always worn shin pads and is very protective of his shins, if you have ever seen him do a nothing up a set of stairs then you realise why he needs them. Shane hails from Nashville, he is a super down to earth rider and if you ever meet him make sure you buy him a soda and talk some sport…
Kostya Andreev is a technical park machine. With the ability to come up with some of the most progressive and complex tricks in the world, our dude from Russia rides the hell out of our pads, and with a smile on his face the whole time.
Grant Fielder AKA Chopper has had his fair share of up’s and downs riding a bike, in 2005 in landed badly and split his pancreas while putting a hole in his stomach. It didn't stop him though, proof that humans are as tough as hell.

FUSE is excited to announce the addition of skatepark sensation Leeton Kleingeld to the FUSE Worldwide crew through BMX International in Australia.
We’ve been huge fans of Leeton’s exciting blend of technical and creative riding for a while now, and couldn’t be more excited to have him part of the family and repping FUSE down under. Look out for more from Leeton and FUSE in the very near future, and in the mean time go follow him on Instagram, and if you somehow didn’t see his incredible new video part he dropped a few weeks back we highly suggest you have a watch as a taster of what is to come from…
It doesn’t matter what you ride, because at some point when riding a BMX bike you’re going to hit the side of your ankle, and it’s going to hurt like hell. Despite this unwanted pain, many riders don’t protect their ankles because they feel that wearing pads compromises the way they ride and that it feels uncomfortable.
The FUSE ALPHA Ankle Protectors are designed to fit slimly over your sock and under your shoe, without causing any discomfort. Available as a pair, these smart little pads will allow you to ride in total confidence, without making you feel like you’re wearing a suit of armour down there.
Here at FUSE we are excited to give you a first look at our new ALPHA Glove that will be released later this year. This is our slimmest, best fitting glove yet. The ALPHA model is the end result of over a year of serious testing and development with Kriss Kyle and the rest of the FUSE team.
Listening to the team and designing product’s specifically for the needs of the riders is one of the core principals that FUSE was born out of. Back in 2003, when the guys at Wethepeople wanted slimmer, better fitting pads, they decided that they would just make their own. After spending some time with the team and working off their input on what makes a good pad, they carefully re-searched the best materials and manufacturing methods possible, and shortly after the first FUSE pads came into existence.
FUSE Protection proudly welcomes UK Park sensation Tom Isted to the team. Tom is one of the most talented riders emerging out of the UK park scene, and after being flowed FUSE pads through our distro CSG UK for a while now, we decided to make things official and add him to the crew. Enjoy over 3mins of Tom sending big tricks and even bigger transfers at his local skatepark in Cornwall, Mount Hawke.
Tom wears our NEW super light in-mold Scope DELTA helmet, which will be available in 2 weeks time worldwide.
