Solid, versatile pads

Rating: Featured Member Review
The Good:

the padding is thick enough for fairly serious hits and they stayed put when crashing. the material dries out super fast, and breaths very well

The Bad:

the fitting around the wrist is a little tight compared to the upper arm (could just be how I'm built)

Overall Review:

I got these pads for their versatility and am very happy with them. I use them on rougher trail rides and when racing/riding DH and Super D. I live in Phoenix AZ, so tripping while walking a trail and getting hurt on a rock is possible, so when riding a bike at much faster speeds, damage on some greater level is a reality. I keep them in my pack on trail rides, but if I know what I'm getting into at the start of my ride, it's easier to put them on first as I need to remove my watch and gloves to get them on.

I wore them all day at the Bootleg race in March, starting with morning practice, racing my Super D Run, crashing in that run and then back to DH practice. Once my skin warmed up, the silicone gripper material at the ends of the pads locked them in place for the whole day. With cold,

Once my skin warmed up, the silicone gripper material at the ends of the pads locked them in place for the whole day. With cold, or really dry skin, I did have them slip down once or twice. They are very comfortable to wear for several hours and the fabric breathes very well. They are fairlysnug in their fit, but it actually supportive, not restrictive, and I did not notice any extra fatigue from wearing them.

As for the size, I went with a medium. I am 5'10" and weight around 185. the fit on my forearms is really snug, the biceps, a little looser so clearly I need to do some curls ha.
