Strengths:    Excellent fit
Excellent protection
Good looks
Not too heavy
Stays in place


Weaknesses:    Bulky

Bottom Line:   
For the elbows, I haven't found anything I liked better. They're bulky, but I wear them over jerseys and warmers. They don't really leave anything to want. I happened to be between sizes and went for the larger size and can only complain about the long velcro straps, but can fit it easier over winter layers. They come pretty close to the wrist that they'd interfere with wrist watches, wrist braces, and lift pass bracelets.

For the Knee/Shins, it's hit or miss, depending on fit. I like my Kyle Straits a lot better, but they don't offer as much protection and require shoe take off to put on (if you want them to last). Would be more of the type you carry to the top on your pack, then put on for the descent, rather than the type you can wear full time like soft pads. I am the type that goes full time with pads, so I can't really recommend the knee/shins.

5/5 for value and overall for the Elbow pads.

Raceface Rally FR Leg Armor 2006 vs 2005 Versions

Anyone know the difference between the 2006 and 2005 versions? Raceface's website (and the online retailers) only indicates the leg armor strapping system was improved but has no back photos of the armor. Do the velcro straps still cross behind the knee? Anyone know if there's an actual differe ... Read More »

Roach Rally FR vs. DH armor

I’m considering either the Roach Rally FR or DH armor. Although I don’t really do any real downhill riding I’m looking for the most protection with the least amount of constriction. By looking at the pads on the Roach’s website the DH look to provide the most protection and don’t appear to be any ... Read More »

Roach Rally FR Leg Armor - What size?

I'm looking at getting a set of Roach Rally FR Leg Armor and Arm Armor for myself. I'm a stocky 5' 8". What size should I get? Medium or large?
