    Looking for Help with Pads for my 10yr Daughter / Youth

    I posted in the Protection forum and it was suggest I also post here.

    My daughter has finally sized out of her current pads. Honestly I should have done this last season. I had a pair of Fox knee pads from Revzilla and I think the elbows were from a roller blade kit. The knee pads were fabric with hard plastic knee and shin protection. The elbows looked like every other standard park elbow pad. I'll attach a pic of her current pads.

    She is currently about 10.5 years of age and 4ft 10in (without shoes). From the middle of the knee to her ankle is 12in. The widest part of her calf is 12in in circumference.

    We ride all around CO including Denver, Fruita, Crested Butte and the Front Range. She doesn't do any enduro/dh, but you would think she did with the amount of protection she wears She'll do a few XC short course races in a year, but they are just for fun. We don't do lift access so the pads need to be pedaling friendly.

    I'm not stuck on a brand or market segment. I'm fine with something from the motocross world. I would prefer something with a hard plastic impact area. These will get used and I worry that soft shell pads will not hold up.

    I'm really focused on trying find something that won't break the bank. In a few years she'll out grow the pads and thats another reason to watch the budget.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    For adjustable protection look at the Dainese Scarabeo line. It's designed to change size as your kid grows.

    I checked their website and it doesn't look like they have an expandable feature anymore. All of the pads had several different sizes.

    Hmm, maybe it is only the jacket and shorts that are adjustable. The pads look like they're good quality at a reasonable price though, and sized properly for kids.

    I usually end up buying several of what I'm looking for from Amazon and returning whatever doesn't fit. Adult size small or even XS is unlikely to fit her, so definitely look for pads sized for children.

    Here is what I ended up purchasing. I got everything for a local motorcycle shop. They fit her great and she really likes them. The shin guards have buckle that allows you set the size and then pop it open. It makes getting them on and off a breeze. The elbow guards do a sleeve that the arm goes through. If your kiddo has large arms this could be an issue.

    My daughter rode 6 miles in these and didn't complain once. She really liked the protection. The elbow guards took some adjusting, but we have them dialed in.
