    a lightweight, breathable, knee/shin pad?

    alright, so a few days ago, i started riding clipless. on sunday, in 2 hours of riding, i fell about 9 times. and on monday, after like 3 hours of riding, i fell like 5 times. now my legs are bruised and cut up. your probably laughing at me right now. i am too. but im looking for a knee/shin leg pad that is very breathable and lightweight for XC riding. ill also probably take em dh with me when i head up to highland or something. and also, i need ones that run big, because i got the curse of the big legs. under $130 would be nice.

    I got the Fox knee/shin guard.

    Feels light and airy, but I haven't fallen with them yet to report their "performance."

    G-Form pads are your best bet. Lightweight and flexible but the instant they make contact with anything they harden. About $50 for any pair of pads: elbow, knee, and shin.
