    Does anybody have any experience with IXS Hack Elbow pads?

    I need some elbow pads and these are cheap and look good.

    The knee pad version gets a good write up but I cant find any info about the elbow pads.

    Whats the catch?

    The rage pads look good but the IXS are cheaper.

    I ordered the IXS in the end as they have their own euro DH series so I thought I would support that. I will update when I have them so others will have an idea.

    Totally forgot about this.

    I have used them a few times now and I'm not sure about them. Yes when I have crashed they have saved my elbows from getting scraped but I think they might be causing me to get arm pump.

    On the main occasions I have worn them there could have been contributing factors for the arm pump but I don't normally get it and I think the pads have at least contributed to me getting it. This could be down to the sizing, the pads are a large and are pretty comfortable but quite snug in fitting. I definitely wouldn't class my arms as large especially not compared to somebody who does a lot of riding and works out, I don't work out at all.

    If I am right they really slowed me down on the descent of Snowdon. If I'm wrong I am a girl and need to do something about my arm pump problems. I might get some 661 Rage pads to see how they compare.
