Had a pretty bad crash while longboarding yesterday. I was skating down a little hill when suddenly a Vespa pulled out of a driveway, I dodged it but in the process hit a pothole and made a Superman dive to the front. I'm riding goofy, so I was flying right side to the ground and my rigt ellbow took most of the impact when I hit the ground. I weight 95 kg and must have had about 30 km/h when I hit the pothole, so it was quite an impact, my wrist guard and my hip took the remainder of the impact and after skidding a bit along the road I could simply get up, walk back to my board, reassure the Vespa driver that I was ok and skate back home. Apart from some abrasion on my hand, hip and ellbow I was good. The abrasion on my ellbow most probably came from wearing the ellbow guards over a long-sleeved shirt. The mesh on the inside of the ellbow guard ripped, but the outside that hit ground only has a minor scratch (I'd upload a foto but this isn't possible here).
As a suggestion to further enhance these splendid ellbow guards I'd add a velcro removable hard-shell PE ellbow-cap. This would probably have saved my ellbow from getting the abrasion by not connecting with the road upon impact (I felt the pull on my arm, when I hit the road) but by sliding along the asphalt. And velcro-attachable, because that way one could remove the shell if one doesn't need it or wants to wear it under a jacket, pullover, etc.
Good fit good protection
She Love them. Well Made, good fit, stay in place.
These pads are great. They fit a bit small so consider getting a size larger than you normally would (especially if you want to put them over a long sleeve Jersey).
They're super comfortable on the rides down and breath well to keep you cool. I've crashed while wearing them and they saved my arm from injury!
Putting these elbow pads on gives you +2 rowdiness. They fit great, stay in place all day and I am sure they will save my elbows one day.
My only gripe with these pads is that the hard velcro side is stitched into the pads instead of the strap. After my first day riding with these pads, the trim around the padding was already pilling because it was getting caught in the exposed velcro. Then when I tried on my new jersey on top of the pads the hard velcro caught and pulled some threads in the sleeve of my jersey.
Other than that these are comfortable confidence inspiring elbow pads that stay in place well.
