MTB FIRST AID KIT
FIRST AID KIT
Because safety is every biker’s responsibility, Sendhit has designd a 100% MTB specific First Aid Kit. Light and compact , it contains a lot given its small size:
100% MTB specific
We believe that all riders should be ready to help other riders (or ourselves) when accidents occur.
We have designed a first aid kit specifically adapted to the requirements of mountain bikers and to the most frequent trauma in mountain biking:
- It’s light, only 100 gr
- It’s compact (16x11x3 cm) and therefore fits most hip packs and back packs
- It’s mud and water splash resistant
- It’s focused on serious injury situations because we all know that mountain bikers don’t care about minor injuries. The First Aid kit provides first aid medical equipment and instructions to enable the injured person to wait for emergencies or to return home in good conditions.
- It provides concrete help in emergency situation: In the event of a serious accident, you can quickly panic. The information provided in the first aid kit guides the injured person or his friend(s) in the first steps to be taken.
The pouch does not only serve as a container, it immediately delivers key information because the situation can involve quick and consequential decisions:
Emergency card with key information
Quick and effective treatment can save lives in an emergency. First responders and mountain search and rescue teams must have essential personal information about the injured person in order to provide the best treatment on the spot and to notify next of kin if necessary.
When completed, the emergency card provides this information.
A primary care guide
We include in the kit a manual some basic pointers available in 5 languages (EN, FR, DE, ES, IT):
As any attempt to provide first aid is better than no attempt at all, we provide some basic pointers that can help facing a injury on the trail. By no means does reading these pointers substitute for formal First Aid training and we strongly recommend everyone to take a course.
