Nobody likes wearing bulky pads. They're uncomfortable, sweaty, and you probably won't want to wear them very often so they won't do you much good. These slip-on elbow sleeves are Dakine's lightest, lowest-profile, and most breathable pad so you won't have to battle with straps, and they'll all but disappear if you wear them under a long sleeve, or 3/4 sleeve jersey. The great thing is that they more than pull their weight in the protection department and they're treated with Polygiene odour control tech so they won't get stanky too quickly.
With perforated DK Impact energy-absorbing foam technology with an Aramid ripstop shell and a pre-curved ergonomic fit these pads will save your skin if/when things go wrong out on the trail.
Who's this item for: These are a great choice for anyone looking for a low-profile elbow pad for any kind of riding.
Protection Style: These are a slip-on soft shell pad. They rely on being sized correctly to work and will be soft and comfortable to wear.
Materials: 100% nylon with an Aramid ripstop shell. Silicone grippers help them to stay in place.
Closure or Slip-on: These are a slip-on style pad so they don't have any straps.
Length of elbow pad: The pads will cover from just above your elbow down to mid-forearm.
Protection level: These pads offer light to moderate protection against impact and abrasion.
Removable protective inserts for washing: No, the pads aren't removable.
Pros: Light breathable design is comfortable and low-profile so you'll be more likely to want to wear them.
Cons: Sizing is crucial. If you don't get it right you'll either feel like they keep falling down if they're too big, or be too constricted if they're too small.
