    Light weight elbow and knee pads, Dakine?

    I'm in the over 40 crowd and have taken a few spills lately, I'm thinking it might be time for some light weight elbow and knee pads. I've been looking at the Dakine Slayer & Hellion, but haven't found many reviews. Have any of you had any experience with Dakine pads?

    I personally do not like pads that have material all the way around. The are too hot to me. Check out the Fox Launch or launch shorty.

    ...... im not a fan of light weight.

    I've read many a light weight pad either offer minimal protection, or slide off/move around.

    Yeah, I've read the same type of reviews, but I'm not planning on using them at the bike park. I'm looking for some light weight gear for using on our local trails.

    I too am an oldie... Simple answer "IXS Flow" I find just right between protection and bulk etc and trust me I tried loads of pads before I settled on these..

    Take a look at tld speed, even though I use a much burlier knee pads (ixs carve) the tld speed elbow sleeve has served me well but I've just bought it, so can't speak for long term durability, I liked because it's a full sleeve and offers some minimal forearm protection as well.

    Alpinestars Paragon.
    Elbow and knee.
    Check them out.
    Super comfy for me.
    Excellent fit and coverage in my opinion.
    All day on the trail or all day at the bike park= no problem.

    Another happy user of the Alpinestars Paragon knee and elbows guards. They're made of a soft armor that forms to you as you ride, are very comfortable, breath well, and are about 25-70% less than most other pads out there!
