AlpineStars Paragon Plus Elbow Pads
Who's it for? Anyone wanting to make sure they don't have to pick bits of gravel out of their elbows.
Protection style? Firm, yet flexible guard for great impact protection, but reasonably unrestricted movement.
Materials? Elastic, mesh, and rip-stop materials strategically placed to give abrasion resistance, mixed with comfort and breathability.
Closure? To keep them lightweight, these are a slip on sleeve style pad.
Length? These cover from mid-bicep to mid-forearm, with the protector pad covering from just above the elbow cup to the bottom of the sleeve.
Protection level? Ligthweight construction, but mid-level protection.
Removable padding? No, the pad cannot be removed from its sleeve for washing. However, you can wash the guards with the pad inside.
Pros? Great comfort and weight, with protection that hits above it's class.
Cons? Lack of retention straps can cause some slippage if fit isn't perfect.
