Hi guys,

After having my elbows torn last days, I'm considering buying some elbow guards. They would be used mainly at 4x races, so they must not affect my feeling of the bike.

Good comfort and ventilation (so that I can wear them in hot days) highly recommended, don't have to be bomb-proof though. I'd like not to spend fortune on them too.

One more important thing, I will have no possibility to try them before buying, so I have to be sure that their size will fit me (I'll rather sell them than sand back to the shop). I have quite thin arms, probably thinking about S sizes.

Here's what I'm intersted in:

IXS Hack elbow guards - can't find any opinions, but look like they were allright

TLD SE elbow guards - heard that I should try them before buying 'cause the S size may be too big, and aren't they too hot?

Race Face rally FR (2010 model) - can get them quite cheap, but doesn't they restrict movement? Aren't they too hot?

TLD EG 5500 - seems to be nice, but I've heard that they like to slide from an elbow.

I'll be gratefull for any info, especially if someone could compare some of them
