Medusa Skates’ Fresh Meat Package has everything you need to begin playing roller derby. Our discounted beginner derby package includes over $300-worth of gear, including a complete pair of derby-ready roller skates, a dual-certified helmet and all required protective gear, including wrist guards, elbow pads, knee pads and a heat-moldable mouth guard. This rookie package is different than what you’ll find elsewhere, because we’ve only included gear that we would actually wear ourselves for derby—and still do! Just because you're starting out, doesn't mean you should skimp on protection. We know that buying roller derby gear can be overwhelming, so please don't hesitate to call Medusa Skates at (512) 203-7203 or email us at with any questions. We love helping new derby skaters!

All S1 helmets are CPSC Certified and ASTM Certified which means they are designed to protect against single high-impacts as well as multiple low-impacts (which are very common in roller derby). Impact testing shows the S1 helmet to be 5X more protective than regular soft foam helmets. All S1 helmets come with sweat-absorbing sizing liners which are anti-microbial and moisture-wicking. Check out S1's Pick a Helmet page to find out which size helmet will fit you.

We've included all Triple 8 safety gear in our derby starter kit. These aren't the beginner pad sets you'll find in other fresh meat packages; these pads are upgraded with high-density memory foam and maximum padding made to actually protect you from roller derby’s hard hits and falls. After many years of derby, these are still some of our favorite pads no matter what level of derby you're playing. All of these items are available in sizes JR–XL. Click on the Triple 8 sizing guides below:


Everyone at Medusa Skates wears the SISU Aero mouthguards because they're ultra-thin, comfortable and strong. At 1.6mm, you can easily talk, drink and breathe during a game without having to take them out. Using only hot water, the SISU can be re-molded up to 20 times and are compatible with braces. Click for SISU fitting instructions.


  • Mota Freedom Outdoor Wheels (+$50 for 8 wheels) - Save $10 on these wheels when you add them to your Fresh Meat Package at time of purchase! Every skater needs a pair of soft outdoor wheels for street skates, cruising the Veloway or rolling around the neighborhood. There's nothing more embarrassing than face-planting because your wheel got stuck on a piece of gravel. 82A hardness; 62mm x 41mm.

  • Riedell Leather Toe Caps (+$20 for a pair) - Don't goop up your new skates with duct tape like everyone else! These leather toe caps keep the toes of your new skates from getting shredded and scuffed up on the ground (which they inevitably will).

  • Basic Skate Tool Kit (+$20) - You’ll need a few simple tools to adjust your trucks and toe stops, or change out wheels and bearings. This basic skate maintenance kit will let you do all that! Includes a 5-in-1-multi tool and a Bones bearing press. Multi-tools come in assorted colors and will be included randomly.
  • JABreeze Gear Spray (+$5) - This pad spray will keep the derby stank away! Made in Austin, TX by skaters for skaters. All-natural, anti-bacterial and anti-microbial blend. Ingredients: distilled water, emulsified alcohol, witch hazel, peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil, green tea.
  • Medusa Skates Tee (+$15) - Save $5 on this Medusa tee when you add it to your Fresh Meat Package at time of purchase! Support your local derby-owned skate shop and be the envy of all your friends, obvs with a black unisexy tee featuring our awesome logo (which was designed by local Austin tattoo artist Stacey Martin!).

Awesome Package! February 12, 2018
Reviewer: Kristen Yost from Fairfax, VA United States  
I received a phone call from the store to verify my order and go over sizes etc, which I thought was awesome!  I then received my order very quickly and I'm really happy with what I got!  I also got some super cool goodies.  Thanks so much for making my first roller derby shopping experience a positive one!  I'll definitely be back to order other things when I need them!

Fantastic service January 22, 2018
Reviewer: Nuke-Leah from Minneapolis, MN United States  
I'm brand new to derby and know nothing (so no equipment reviews) but I know the service was fantastic! The wrist guards were missing in the first box but as soon as I contacted the store they sent them right away at no extra charge with apologies and extra stickers.

She called to make sure all my sizing was right, packaging was great, and shipping was fast. No need to look for another company for gear ever :)
