Rated 5 out of 5 by Gareth56 glad I bought them
Tested them first time I used them, glad I had them. Went down in rocks, right forarm still has lump 4 weeks later. Should have bought arm and elbow protectors as well. mostly don't notice them when riding.
Only real gripe would be that they don't come in various lengths. I bought S/M to fit legs but some shin exposed. I,m 6.2"
