I don’t care if you use a stem pad on your polo bike. I do care if you have un-plugged bar ends or exposed chainrings. That shit is messed up. But a stem pad is only gonna save the rider of the bike it’s on. Nuts and knees. That’s what likely tags the back of the stem in a crash.

I wear padded gloves, and a helmet, and now I finally have a stem pad.

If you want to get one for yourself check out skingrowsback.com from Catt & Jamie of Australia. They make a bunch of things good for polo players.

Like valve protectors.

And polo mallet straps.

.. among other things.
