Providing the right balance between protection and comfort, the Static Elbow guards are great for all riding conditions. Lightweight and non-obtrusive, these elbow guards are a great alternative to bulky awkward guards because we have eliminated uncomfortable buckles and tension straps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Don't last very long
The guards was holding up for a while but started to tear and become loose when going through some rough terrain...it's cheap so I don't expect the last long enough..

Intially I was impressed with these they seemed perfect for xc use (ie minimal unrestrictive padding), but within six months the neoprene has stretch, which means they are not always sitting on my elbow, rather slip down they twist off my elbow, they would be improved with some extra elastic velcro straps, they have also lost some of their robustness regarding the padding. I've just replaced them with the brand-x x elbow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous comfy and protecting, but not at all durable
After a few rides, the elastics are completely destroyed (though I didn't misuse them and have the right size)... they have comfortable fit and protect well for small and medium impacts (never fell hard on them) but aren't as durable as one would expect...

Had these for a year. Really comfy but they have had it now. The elastic is buggered and they fall down the arm at every bump on the trail. Had a fast off wearing them last summer and they did a good job. Had scrapes all up my arm except where the pads were and suffered no major bruising despite landing hard on my left forearm. Good value for money if you cant live with hard pads and velcro straps.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous very comfortable but gives no protection
I used mines for about 4 months, I am medium size, the Elbow guards were very tight at the beggining but with the time started to get loose and loose, the material started to brake, long story short, I had some crashes where the "protection" sliped from my elbow and gave no protection at all; it is true that are really comfortable, some times you don't feel that you are wearing them, however when it cames to protection, this ones don't give the protection that they should... I will be getting a Troy lee design to replace my Thor, by the way I don't use anymore, I feel more comfortable without the Thor Elbow and I get the same protection which mean: none...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous EXCELLENT PRODUCT!
Really good product, non obtrusive so can be worn under or over base layer thermals and will definitely fit under all jerseys, really comfortable and movement is not really restricted while wearing them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Ideal for XC as they're very lightweight and unintrusive. Forgot they were there after 5 mins riding. Protection level is admarable considering their size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Léger, compact et pratique
ces courdières n'offre effectivement pas la même protection et le même amorti qu'une coque rigide mais elles sont une bonne alternative en rando/enduro/all mountain.
je les utilise à chaque sortie !
Pour info, je mesure 1m68 pour 65 kg et le S/M est presque trop petit...
