    661 EVO or Fox launch pro pads

    I'm looking for knee and elbow pads. Looking for something light and comfortable and decent protection. Based on my search I have narrowed down to 661 EVO and Fox launch pro pads. Can you please give me your input if you own or have used these protective gear. Thanks.

    I ended getting sixsixone Kyle Strait knee pads for my wife and I, you can't beat $24/pair. Thinking about getting the rage elbow pads for us.

    I have the Fox Launch Pro knee pad (without the extra shin protection). When I got them, the LBS also had the 661 EVO pad. My limited experience of the EVO pads (tried on in LBS) was that they are not molded to the shape of your knee, so it was slightly uncomfortable. Compared to the Fox knee pads which are molded to the shape of your knee, which I have worn on the trail for a while now, once you get pedaling you pretty much forget they are on. Even in hot weather.

    See if you have a LBS which carries multiple brands of body armor. Or order from someone with a good return policy (like Huck-n-Roll).
