    Flexi Elbow Pads Lite

    When you're weaving through tight aspens, some bushwhacking is inevitable, but nobody wants to take a branch to the funny-bone when concentrating on your line of attack for the rock garden you're rolling into. Shred Optics offers a solution with the Flexi Elbow Pads Lite. These minimalist pads offer coverage from proprietary foam that intelligently, and progressively, adapts to different impacts and forces you take on on your ride. Armortex outer fabric uses anti-abrasion properties to keep the pads in decent shape against branch snags and rock scuffs, and Super-Stretch Spandex sleeves offer both breathability and comfortable stretch to keep your fit dialed and fuss-free while you ride.

    • Light and comfortable pads to shield from bushwhacking
    • Proprietary foam adapts to different forces and impact speeds
    • Stretchy spandex breathes and allows for freedom of movement
    • Hexagod foam structure is incredible thin and light
    • Avoid scuffs and snags with Armortex outer fabric
    • Item #SRO0010

    Impressive fit

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Finding a pair of well-fitting elbow pads can definitely be easier said than done. I was quite impressed with have versatile the pads were while allowing you to flex your elbows and not feel restricted. Its construction is clearly bomber and able to mitigate a blow to the elbow. I feel very confident in the protection from these pads and am extremely impressed with their fit.

    Didn't noticed them until I needed them!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got these pads just before my Heli Biking trip this summer and I have got to say they are the most comfortable pads I have ever worn. Breathability is top-notch, able to wear them all day without sweating more than the average amount. I wanted to get a pair of pads that I could fit under my long sleeve jerseys and these fit the bill perfectly. The construction has been great I have taken a tumble or two on them with no visible marks. They are incredibly light and flexible when riding but provide really great protection when you fall on them. I recommend these to any avid trail rider looking for a light breathable pad that offers a solid amount of protection.

    Tested Protection

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I took a nasty OTB fall with these on. I had very minor abrasions through the pads. All the skin on my arms would have been gone without them. Enormously glad I wore them.

    They're also pretty light and didn't bother me at all while riding. Huge fan all around.

    Great protection

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I was very impressed with the construction of the pads as I took a blow directly to my elbow. The material is perfect to keep you protected while maintaining flexibility. My only complaint is the fit being a little loose; on a rocky ride, I noticed that I had to pull them back up several times throughout a ride.

    they keep your joints safe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I tried these on a couple different rides, they are nice and cool. I haven't had to test how protective they are in a crash (thankfully,) but they seem like they would do a great job.
    The only complaint and that I have is that the pad can get molded out of shape and it makes them a little uncomfortable at times.

    Can't Wait!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I recently had the opportunity to take these out for a spin. Unfortunately, the trip I wanted to use them for was canceled, To be continued on my review. You can tell the quality is there and they are comfortable and lite to wear and put on.
