661 DBO Elbow Pads
Who's this item for: Designed to be comfortable for long periods of time the 661 DBO are great from anything from Trail riding to DH.
Protection Style: They feature a D30 T5 Evo shock-absorbing insert. D30 is soft and flexible normally but becomes firm upon heavy contact. This offers certified level one protection against impacts.
Materials: Made with a neoprene lower sleeve, and the D30 insert.
Closure or Slip-on: These are a slip-on style elbow pad, with a single hook and loop closure at the top of the pad for extra security. They also feature padlock connectors at the top to integrate with 661 protective jackets.
Length of elbow pad: The sleeve itself extends from the bicep to midway down the forearm. The protection is mainly centered around the elbow and part of the forearm.
Protection level: These are medium-duty protection. D30 offers excellent protection against impacts but doesn't offer as much protection as hardshell pads against abrasions.
Removable protective inserts for washing: The inserts are not removable.
Pros: They are flexible and most importantly comfortable. They offer excellent protection for the price point and are available in youth sizing.
Cons: You may want greater protection if you are smashing DH runs day in and day out.
