Off road rider elbow guards at great prices and selection.

These guards seem like they would provide good protection, the quality is top notch, but they have a major flaw. They migrate down your arm very easily, and the design doesn't allow the guard to articulate with your arm much at all, so every time you bend your arms the guards slide down a bit more. They work alright under a tight jersey that holds them up, but I find myself not wearing them pretty frequently because they tend to be a pain on the trails, requiring frequent readjustment.Read All Reviews

Right out of the bag I found that the left elbow guard had stitches coming out on the bands that go around the forearm and the biceps. As I tried on the guard, the stitches started to come undone even more. I read about these problems in reviews on a different site and figured that they're probably isolated cases, and so I ordered them. Overall, the right elbow guard was fine, but I could see that the stitches would probably fail after a couple of rides. I would recommend avoiding these until Alpinestars figures out the manufacturing problem. Get them only if you have a friend or mom who can use a sewing machine to redo all of the stitches. They seem like they're a great fit and could probably stay in place even after high impact landings.Read All Reviews
