Strengths:    Deflects impact.
Stays in place.
Nice velcro tightening system.

Weaknesses:    None I can think of.

Bottom Line:   
I've been riding and racing in these elbow guards for the last year and they are by far my favorite. I've taking some good hits and spills on chunky rocks, but always walked away in one piece. I've used D30 pads in the past, but when I hit a rock with those the soft pad kind of sticks to the rock, and I get all of the impact. But the Alpinestars Moab has a good exterior shell and helps me glance off those rocks, so I don't get the full impact.

I like how it covers most of my forearm for times when I slide out.
