Rated 5 out of 5 by Seadog101 Quality item, good fit.
A good comfortable fit.
Lightweight, easy to wear all day long.
Enough protection for clumsy apes like me, without the bulk off full on DH gear.
Worked well when I had my first need for them in a low speed fall down onto loose gravel.
I'll be buying the trail skins knee pads when my current bulky Alpine Stars ones get too messed up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SuperCereal Agree with Uppers review
As per uppers review, I entirely agree.
Articulation is terrible.
The straps are secure and the finish is too class.
They just don't feel like the cup a knee or elbow (I bought both).
Will be returning and trying some IXS Evo and Carve pads if I can get XL.
Note, I ordered these in XL and fit was still tight at top of thigh and bicep. I'm of reasonable build, not a drainpipe. 220 lbs.

These are great items, really light weight so once they are on you don't know you are wearing them and the just become part of your kit. They wont stop damage from a massive off but will def help with the usual cuts and bruises.
Just make sure you get the correct size as with all safety gear its needs to fit right or it wont do its job

Rated 1 out of 5 by Uppers Bulky With a Bad Fit
Purchased these after reading some positive reviews and I have to disagree them all. These are really awkward fitting and uncomfortable. The padding is in no way ergonomic and does not fit to the body. The closures that wrap around and velcro down are narrow and uncomfortable - I just can't understand how a company like Dainese can get this so wrong?!? If you folded up some cardboard and bent it round your elbows and then tied it on with some elastic bands you would not be far off from the same fit as these (bar the materials of course). Really not great and not worth the money - come on Dainese you can do better.

I have only just started using armour so I've not got much to compare them with.
I bought these after buying some cheap hard pads for DH days.
For most of my riding these are a million times better.
Really comfortable to wear. You really do forget you're wearing them.
Movement is great, you don't feel restricted at all.
Really breathable, don't find them sweaty.
They seem to offer a decent level of protection for most riding. Like me, you might want something a bit more robust for DH days but other than that I'd say they'd do the job. Luckily, I haven't tested this though.
Quality seems really good. They are not cheap but worth the money in my opinion.
The only negative I can say about them, and it's not that they are bulky at all and anyway it's a positive in a way, is that they are quite long and wide. They are great under a long sleeve top but might stick out a bit if you had short sleeves on. Having said that, as they warm up they become more flexible and mould to your body shape anyway which means they stick out less..
Overall I love them. But the best thing about them for me is that I wear them rather than keeping them in the cupboard because they are so big and bulky!

Hi Any chance of getting an up to date size chart out of Dainese for the knee and elbow guards .Even Dainese has not a size chart for these items, They may find that sales may go up with a size chart imho Thanks
