It was 1977 and Dale Smith was preparing for his slalom run against an all-star from Japan. Smith never reached the finish line–he crashed halfway, and he was so wrecked, his wounds so gory, that Bruce Logan said afterward it looked as if he had sausages tied to his body. From then on he has been known as: Sausage Man. A decade later Dale Smith began developing his own brand of safety equipment - Smith Safety Gear.
The Horseshoe pad is made of neoprene with additional impact absorbing knee padding. These knee gaskets specialize in provided support and comfort to people with weak or injured knees, and are not made to protect against hitting or scraping your knee. They are made of elastic neoprene material which wraps around all sides of the knee in order to provide maximum support. The knee gaskets provide support areas of the knees which other skate knee pads cannot provide. Also, they can be attached and worn under Smith Scab pads for additional extreme protection.
