Solid, light-weight, well-constructed, barely know you're wearing them. Recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Finchy Brilliant product, worth more than £12.99
I bought these ready for a trip to Bike Park Wales :-) tested them out at our local track, sherwood pines, and you hardly notice them. Definately worth the money but the test will be the downhill runs at Wales. I'm 6ft 2 and wear size large but medium fits well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by reymund Way better then 661 Comp Elbow I had, this had yet to slip off my elbow during ride or fall
Got sick of the 661 Comp elbow guards as they kept slipping during my riders...velcro too tight and its not comfortable and gives me arm pump.
Borrowed from friend this Brand X elbow guard to try and it never slips during my downhill runs and decided to get a set for myself. Its also comfortable considering these are hard plastic guards. For their price, its a no-brainer for anyone looking for good protection

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous excellent buy and grt comfort
I was advised to buy something more expensive rather than something cheaper then go for more expensive gear later hence saving money in the long run....But I have to say i am really impressed with Brand X. I had never worn armour b4 so put them on and wondered about the house getting things ready for about an hour b4 going out, I had a cpl of little itchy spots for a few mins, probs just my body getting used to the strangeness.
Then i was off on the bike had them on for a bout an hour and half cycling so about two and a half hrs total I HAD ELBOW GUARDS AND KNEE/SHIN GUARDS ON. I have to say by the time i came home i never even realised they where on... a grt buy in my opinion

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Excellent buy
Have to review these pads, own both knee and elbow, highly recommended, as 1st time out after buying, saved my skin, if not my dignity!! Took a heavy slam to elbow and knee, onto hardpack and loose stone. No damage to me, not even bruising, and pads stayed in place!
Size wise, went for the large, only 5'9 tall, arms about 12" forearm and 13" bicep fit fine. Knee pads, calf 16" and just above knee 18" fit perfect, neither move around much thanks to the sock sleeves. They are both comfortable and don't need wearing in. Really pleased with the purchase, and highly recommend, you do look a bit like Ironman, but better to have too much protection than need it!!!
Can't believe the price for such good quality and durable pads, plus as always delivery was very quick, thanks again ChainReaction

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Great alternative for kids knee / shin
My 4 year old daughter has started coming out on the MTB trails with me & I wanted to get some protection for her. It was hard to find some knee pads small enough for her so following a tip from a forum I bought these as an alternative & they work a treat. The lower velcro straps could do with being able to close smaller (hence the 4* not 5*) but the tube grip and Velcro strap above the knee hold it all in place well enough - as tested out with a couple of falls.
So not a review for their intended use as elbow pads, but very happy with them doubling up as kids knee / shin guards
