Skateparks get stoked. FUSE Protection is excited to announce the launch of our new ALPHA-R line, a new range of protection specifically designed for Skateparks as a high-quality rentable product.
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. Our latest line of protection gear has 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…
When you think of huge airs, ultimate style and total abandonment for any kind of safety then you might think of Larry Edgar. His traditional big and flowing riding style is so refreshing these days and we are very proud to have him part of the team.
Brian is no stranger to sending it every time he rides. His "go big or go home" attitude and highly progressive riding style makes Brian the perfect rider to be repping FUSE and help test our products to the limit.
There’s no denying Jack’s incredible talent on a bicycle and his consistent podiums of the contest scene over the past few years. Jack’s explosive dynamic and stylish riding style has had everyone here at FUSE talking for a while now, and we couldn’t be more stoked to now have him part of the family.
One Germany's most talented park riders, Christoph destroys ramps by day, and the dance floor by night. This Jagermeister enthusiast isn't scared of sending it on street either.
French MTB assassin Nicolas Terrier is the latest addition to our team. When not killing it at contests, Nicolas can be found in the woods working on something wild to throw at the next one...
FUSE Protection is excited to announce our partnership with Simple Session 2018 in Tallinn Estonia on February the 3rd and 4th. One of the biggest and most exciting BMX events of the year, you can expect to see FUSE Protection riders and 2017 podium winners Larry Edgar and Jack Clark look to repeat their success and go bigger than ever this year on the park course.
If you cant make it to the contest, don’t forget you can catch the live stream on the 3rd and 4th of February right HERE.
We have some exciting new additions to the FUSE Protection product line for the new season. We worked with FUSE PRO Kriss Kyle on his own signature glove, taking our already super popular ALPHA Glove as a base and adding Kriss’ own tattoo-inspired graphics as well as some subtle upgrades over the original ALPHA Glove to make one incredibly durable glove with a fantastic feel.
The FUSE Kriss Kyle Glove will be available Spring 2018 in Stealth Black or Ice White in sizes S-XL. Hit up your local FUSE dealer today and place your pre-orders now because these things are going to be flying off the shelves FAST.

FUSE Protection is excited to welcome the UK’s Jack Clark to our growing team. There’s no denying Jack’s incredible talent on a bicycle and his consistent podiums of the contest scene over the past few years. Jack’s explosive dynamic and stylish riding style has had everyone here at FUSE talking for a while now, and we couldn’t be more stoked to now have him part of the family.
Jack is currently on his way to Chengdu, for the Chinese stop of the FISE world tour, and then after that will be heading straight back to the UK to work on a banger of a welcome video.

Amazing. Kriss Kyle leaves no transition un-touched in this new masterpiece for The Source.
FUSE Protection is proud to welcome American powerhouse Brian Fox to the team. Brian burst onto the contest scene over the past couple of years, combining huge tricks and enormous amounts of energy every time he sets foot on a bike. Firing out double backlfips and 1080s mid contest run with his “go big or go home” attitude and always smiling, we couldn’t think of a more perfect rider to representing what FUSE is all about.
We caught up with Brian just after X Games to find out a bit more about why he’s stoked to be part of the FUSE family, some of the prototypes he’s been helping us test, and what he’s got planned for the rest of the year.
