Strengths:    Deflects impact.
Stays in place and doesn't slip much.
3-point velcro strap system to keep it in place.
Nice combination of padding and a hard shell exterior.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
I've been riding and racing in these knee/shin guards for the last year and they are definitely my favorite.
I've used D30 pads in the past, but when I would fall on chunky rocks I would essentially stick to the rock and take all of the impact, and end up with a large bruise because the impact was spread out. But the Alpinestars Moab is resilient and the hard exterior shell allows me to glance off those chunky rocks.
I broke a rear triangle on a DH bike after going OTB on a chunky rollover, despite the damage to the bike I was completely fine, when I know my lower leg took a lot of the impact.

These knee/shin pads are awesome and I would recommend them to anyone who rides DH.
