Great if you ride downhill and havent switched to tubless yet. pretty heavy, probably the beefiest tubes ive ever seen, and definetly the widest. major difference in cornering from standard sized, bike shop tubes. Probably not for you if you arent running over 2.50's. or if you ride XC. Helped my cornering out big time, and gunna ride them till i go tubless!

First of all, if your coming from wearing pants or even basketball shorts while you ride, its a HUGE difference.

Pros
-very very very comfortable
-Not constricting at all
-Never roll up, or show off those white thighs
-Feels like your wearing nothing while you ride, until you fall and they protect you much better than jeans!
-very ventilated
-zipper pockets are perfect for your keys and phone

Cons
-none!

stop reading this and go out and get em!

I really like them, use them with my Alphine stars ride shorts... and i must say its a perfect combo. I wear them when im doing training and pedaling as well as when i ride DH.

Pros
-Comfortable
-Dont make you look like you have a badonkadonk
-pads aren't huge and bulky
-Very comfortable
-never notice im wearing them when pedaling.
-Butt pad helps alot for long distance pedaling

Cons
-Swamp crotch, not to bad
-says not machine washable, but ive washed them many times on delicate/cold with no problems

I never ride without them anymore.

ive tried alot of shin guards, and i would never use anything but these ever again.

Pros
-NEVER slide around
-very protective, took some good falls with then and taken blows straight to the shins and never felt it.
-straps and sleeve is very soft.
-perfect for the DH-er
-Deflect brush well
-keeps you very cool
-DID I MENTION COMFORTABLE? you will actually wear these. You will want to wear them.

Cons
-No way you could do long distance XC pedaling with them on, but what XC guy wears shin guards?!

Get em'! Dont get any shin guard but these, you will be very dissapointed!

Did not like this at all, Its annoying to put on, and just wearing it i can tell its not going to work for me. Will be sending it back ASAP.

Cons
-NOT TIGHT AT ALL
-mesh bunches
-at the tightest setting the velcro belt isnt enough for me
-very short,
-back protector flexes way too much for comfort.

Id rather wear an old school bmx chest protector than this. This may work if you fall at slow speeds and tiny drops. But if your dropping over 10 ft, and/or racing. NO WAY is this for you!

First off, this helmet is amazing for the price. I doubt it could be beat for the money.

Pros
-Generous ventilation keeps your head nice and cool
-terry cloth inside and chinstrap make it SUPER comfortable and not scratchy at all.
-very light,
-nice and slim, doesnt make you look like a bobblehead
-True to size
-nice and open, good with goggles

Cons
-Scratches easy
-Visor is mediocre, but should not deter you from buying!

I dont see myself buying another helmet for a while, but when i do im definitely investing more money next time, considering i ride 5 times a week. But for someone whos just looking for a solid helmet, this thing is perfect and you will not be disappointed.
