    very nice, i paid more than that for the soft gel ones (veggie wraps?) and these probably run a lot more...

    I've never ridden with pads. I got some elbow guards for xmas so I figured I should get some shin/knee pads too. I've been thinking about it for more than a year, but just never pulled the trigger.

    Do you guys find they bind or slow you down at all?

    I think I'll follow suit and get some elbow pads and if I keep doing these trails, a FF.

    Yeah, they're a bit uncomfortable... especially for us old XC dogs.

    I woulndn't event think on wearing them on extended climbs. I use them on some trails where it's all way up-all way down. So I carry them on my pack, then wear them on for the reward.

    Yours look much better for "wearability", though. I'd use them all the time but I wanted a guard that would cover the lower portion of the shin.

    Ahhh... fatcrobat / in deep..... Love that stretch!

    Pads rock, I have two sets. One for serious FR/DH where falling is just part of the ride, for me at least. For those days I go with roach DH pads. On the motolite I have some Fox standard pads, that are small & light enough that I can keep them in my camelback. And they're cheap too! They don't offer tons of coverage but enough to keep the skin on should I take a fall- I throw them on if we are sessioning a jump or stunt, or doing a long technical descent. The 661's are probably even better.

    Climbing with pads on sucks. So, pads like these that you can easily remove, without taking yoru shoes off, are the only way to go.

    I have the RaceFace(Roach) Rally FR. Hard plastic with enormous coverage-maybe too much. I have put hard knarly climbs with them and never had a rub. I usually will hang them on the bike frame. For every year I get older the hits take longer to recover and the nads shrink three times more. Wonder if the more pliable pads work as well because that would be perfect. Dainese look nice. Bring an extra helmet and the Whistler patch up center doesn't take insurance so be prepared to pay up front.

    Combo pads don't work so good.. Sure they are easy to put on, but they come off real easy too. Donít kid yourself into thinking you have the best protection.

    My experience is that, very often, in a big crash they get turned. the combo pads are one piece, so if any edge of that pad gets snagged... on a tree, a twig, on your handle bars, by the ground... the whole pad gets turned or pulled and exposes your knee. I donít use them anymore.

    Separate knee pads and shin guards are the way to go.

    An alternative to the Switchblade can be a MET parachute

    Shin pads are not comfortable for climbing. I have a pair of 661s, and they give me a bit of confidence for sure, but I still dont use them for epic rides, or the usual XC rides that we have here. I used to switch to flat pedals to learn to do some wheelie, and jumps, they came handy when my feet slipped off from the pedals.
