Whether you’re riding Enduro or E-MTB, the new G-Form E-Line of pads is designed for all-day comfort pedaling and descending. Available in knee pads and elbow pads, they mix soft, flexible sleeves with multi-layered impact protection, and holes for air flow.
G-Form offers lighter duty protection for those who pedal a lot, like trail and all-mountain riders, so these are aimed at more aggressive descenders that also need to pedal some, but perhaps with longer non-pedaling segments.
The E-Line pads are CE 1621.1 certified, using four distinct levels of protection. On the outside is a mid-sized skid plate, which can help you deflect off rocks and roots rather than bear the full brunt of their impact.
Behind that, and with a broader coverage area, is the abrasion resistant, Kevlar-enhanced Armortex material. it’s designed to cover and secure their main padding, the Smartflex material. This hardens on impact, so it stays flexible and soft while moving, but firms up immediately to absorb harder impact forces before they reach your joints.
The pads use zippered rears for easy on-off, with independent hook-and-loop closures to adjust the fit top and bottom. A mesh back and breathable cushioning under the pads help keep you cooler and dryer.
Available in four sizes (S/M/L/XL), retail is $109.99 for knee, and $99.99 for elbow.
