Sometimes you want coverage, but you don't full full-on DH pads. POC's Joint VPD Air Elbow pads are perfect for rowdy trails where you're pedaling most of the way. The pads use Visco-Elastic Polymer Dough that forms to your body and is flexible when moving, then turns rigid upon impact. They're breathable, stay where they're supposed to and are so light, you don't know they're there. Until you need them.
