One of the most important piece of protection in buhurt is the cup… Maybe THE most important piece of equipment. Forget the helmet, the shoulders, the hips. You better can get into the list without these and having a cup on then visa versa!
The cups are in various measures and materials. Plastic is light and will do the work great. I even saw some cups made out of kevlar… But the price is a but higher too. Kevlar, steel or plastic it doesn’t really matter even a tea cup does the job better then wearing nothing.
After all, the cup is like a little ninja defending your groins. And he is doing his work fantastic!
