Great design for cross country

I've tried many different brands and types of armor for cross country riding. My two complaints about most were either inadequate protection for rock hits and/or too hot. Plus many are just too big for small riders (5'4"). This is my favorite armor so far for cross country. I've had them for about two months and taken two good rock hits; the armor protected me well and didn't slide around at all. Behind the holes on the hard plastic cover is relatively thin honeycombed foam that allows good airflow so they are the coolest ones I've worn although all armor will obviously be hotter than going bare. Mine didn't come with instructions. OK, one would think instructions would not be necessary but these have an unusual method to attach them at the knee without having to unthread the top straps. You don't want to unthread the top straps because they are difficult to rethread. The unusual attachment system works well once you figure out the technique for securely snapping them closed and double checking to make sure they are securely locked. I also have the Fox Launch elbow/forearm armor and like those too. Both feel a bit odd when just standing around, but not on the bike.

Pros: Lightweight
Well ventilated
Relatively cool
Comfortable
Stays put
Easy on-off without having to remove shoes
Good protection for cross country
S/M fits short riders
Shin guard comes all the way down to top of shoe


Cons: You may need something beefier for DH
Took a while to get adjustment right
Attachment was confusing at first

Would Buy Again: Yes
Would Recommend: Yes
