Strength:

Good protection, don't slip.

Weakness:

Somewhat hot, mesh looks like fishnet

These are good for me. They get sweaty/stinky after a few rides but do well in the wash. I have big arms so the bicep velocro is unnecessary. Fishnet is still hot and my friends get a kick out of teasing me.

light - strong - ventilated

Weakness:

should have bought them sooner

just a great product that is light enough to wear XC / epic rides - i bought Rockgardn full jacket & knee/shin guards for my girlfriend and was so impressed that I bought myself the arm guards and shorty knee pads - i'm happy!

Strength:

Great protection, very comfortable, low profile, easy to adjust, not hot or bulky.

Weakness:

Velcro adjustment on bicep is essentially useless. Cross-straps can make sliding into these a little difficult, but conversley makes accidently coming out of them unlikely :D
Mine smell RANK after a few months riding... Time to wash!

These are a great pad for your elbows and forearm. They fit really well, have a good adjustment system to keep them snug, and they work quite well. The webbing is nice as it lets my arm breath. I highly recommend these to anyone in need of elbow/forearm protection.

Strength:

hard plastic on forarms/elbows

Weakness:

x straping system, bicep velcro, uncomfortable

i have used these downhilling for about a week now. they are uncomfortable to wear. the X strapping system crosses right at the elbow which is annonying when riding. the bicep velcro is poorly thought out. they need some type of closure system at the wrist. the perforated spandex is really uncomfortably after a few runs. the one time i needed the protection they slipped up my forearm b/c of the lack of a wrist closure. overall a poor design, there are much better products out there, save your dough and get something better

Strength:

These pads have a great system to hold them in place in which the elastic bands cross each other like an X. This works great and does not slip around. Not too hot and looks way better than the 661 gear my friends ride in.

Weakness:

The velcro that allows tightening around the bicep isn't really that usefull and could be improved - a minor nitpick

Very nice pads at a decent price and you won't look like everyone else.

I got these as part of the Flak Jacket which I haven't really used, but I use these all the time. I figured I might decide I want the Flak Jacket in the future and it was like I got elbow pads for free! :)
