Rated 3 out of 5 by robbiedobbie pretty good for the money
bought these as my first set of pads for general mountain biking and they are pretty good for the price, I've had them for almost a year and they are still in pretty good nick but little bits of stitching have come undone, pretty good for all types of riding but i'd probably go some soft pads for comfort reasons although if you don't know any better they are comfortable enough, the top straps are quite long and stretch permanently after a bit of ware and become very loose then they tend to slide down and leave the elbow a little exposed, a small adjustment now and again is needed to keep them in the right place, havn't had any real bad high speed crashes in them but have definitely saved me from the smaller crashes, going to spend a little more on my next ones and see if i can find something with a bit better quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by vailcycling Excellent value and very light
Got these to protect the elbows while learning the art of Jumping / falling off. Really surprised at how light and they are and yet have good protection. You would easily forget about them once they are on .
The only down side is the elastic straps with the velcro are just too long therefore dont allow for adjustment really. I just cut them and re - attached them so they are now just right .
No need to spend more than this with a good product like this

Rated 3 out of 5 by Joni26Rus Не всем понравится
Качество материалов и пошива отличное, но к сожалению на руке сидит не очень удобно. При небольшой длине щитков, у размера L, оказались сверхдлинные лямки, пришлось перешивать. Если одевать на одежду, держится нормально, но если на голую руку, то сползает. Сковывает движения не очень сильно, но и забыть про неё во езды не удаётся.
Я бы не стал рекомендовать эту защиту, несмотря на её невысокую цену.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrWhippy Good product good price
These are a really good product for the price. They have 3 straps (lower arm, elbow, upper arm) which makes it really easy to get a good, tight fit, and they've saved me from a lot of cuts & bruises.
Only down side is they do sometimes slip down your arm slightly, but this isn't a big problem since I normally take them off after each run, and it only takes a few seconds to readjust them.
Unfortunately there is no size guide for them (and according to the Brand X website they don't exist), but I got size Large which fits me well, my specs are:
Widest part lower arm: 7 inch
Elbow: 6 inch
Widest part bicep: 13 inch
If you're similar size to me I'd recommend size large, if you're smaller in bicep size I'd recommend medium.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sandyballs buy these.
Bought last week out few days later and boom washed out on downhill rocky section. Pads took all the fall with some deep scratches in the plastic but are still good to go. Why spend more.

I own both elbow and knee guards by Brand-X X and all i can say is that i am more pleased than ever! i ve had serious falls(rocky roads) but didnt feel a thing! plus (if you order the right size) they stay in position no matter what! excellent products at a very reasonable price. recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous They look OK for the price
I just received the guards yesterday and cant wait to try them on my next ride. They dont look very tough/professional but are very comfortable and light for the price. The stripes are a bit short but I was able to reach the other side. I ordered medium size as my arms are not mascular at all and they fit properly.
