    Is it just me

    or are these things really worth it!


    $150.00+-I like that the g-forms seem like I could just tuck them in my hydra-pack and not feel it.



    $110.00 (I found the fox elbows did not cover my elbows as well as the g-form)



    $75 (have not tried these on. it looks like the knee and shin are covered)

    Opinions Please..

    1. Will they prevent injury ?
    2. Will they stay in place ?
    3. Are they reasonably comfortable ?
    4. Are they going to hold up ?

    Thanks,

    Hank

    1) Most definitely.

    2) Depends on the person/arm/leg. Best way is to try them on, but this may be unreasonable. Check manufacturer fit guides.

    3) Of the ones you listed, the G-forms will probably be the most comfortable. It is a trade off, as in all things, though. You are trading freedom of movement for better protection. Your terrain will dictate if this is worth it.

    4) Yes. Don't expect them to take serious hits and be unscathed, though.

    G.forms will be fine for most xc and some am riding as long as you are not riding rocky trails.. if you are doing dh or fr I would go with something else.
