AlpineStars Vector Tech Elbow Pads
Who's this item for: DH, Enduro and aggressive Trail riders who are looking for a high level of protection from a pair of elbow pads.
Protection Style: The protection starts with an ergonomically designed, softshell PU guard that is form fitting to your arm. This softshell PU guard is constructed from durable aramidic fiber. Covering the olecranon (boney tip of the elbow) area is a semi-rigid thermoplastic shell for abrasion and exceptional impact protection.
Materials: The main body of the elbow pad is constructed from breathable laminated rip-stop and PE foam. The back uses stretch poly mesh panels for better stability of the elbow pad while riding, but is open at the bend of the elbow to avoid bunching and chaffing. A silicone print is used on the inner sleeve to prevent the guard from being displaced while riding (or crashing).
Closure or Slip-on: Slip the elbow pads on for a quick and effortless fit. Then use the hook and loop top and mid height straps to ensure a precise fit.
Length of Elbow pad: The Vector Tech Elbow Pads cover from above the elbow, just into the forearm area.
Protection level: High. These Elbow pads are CE certified to EN 1621_1 : 2012 LEVEL 1
Removable protective inserts for washing: No.
Pros: High level of protection that is comfortable enough to wear all day.
Cons: Limited size range.
