    Elbow pads...

    I'm considering elbow pads for the first time (mid forties, riding 20 years - things take a loooong time to heal).

    Could anyone recommend comfortable elbow pads for XC trail riding? They don't need to be super downhill level protection but comfort would be a real plus to consider.

    I use the 661 Race Pads. Very comfortable & light.



    Their chicken wing pad offers less protection but is lower profile



    The entire 661 elbow pad lineup can be seen here

    The Rockgardn LZ Elbow/Arm pads are quite nice. The mesh is very breathable, which is nice for XC.

    elbow pads

    I found some foxracing that are thin and farely comfy, but haven't used them much for a year or so.

    I'm running a light-weight Roach pad and they are doing well for me.

    Have a look at the Roach/Race Face Rally FR pads.

    Great info!

    Thanks for the leads. I'll try a few of the pads this weekend... that's if my elbow is healed enough.
