Strength:

Very dependable, very comfortable, able to take a beating

Weakness:

Fellow riders think it is overkill

I am an older rider who can't afford to get hurt. Takes to long to heal. But I spend a lot of time picking myself up after flying over the handlebars. I just stick my forearm out and let the pads take the impact. I have bounced off rock piles, gravel, logs and get up smiling. The pads are scraped, scuffed, dinked, and mashed, but they continue to perform well. They fit good and stay in place. I forget I have them on till I am flying over the bars again. Fit over a long sleeve shirt or jacket nicely. Velcro straps hold everything in place nicely.

Strength:

Comfortable, durable, easy to get on and off - and they don't move!

Weakness:

Doesn't come all the way down to the wrist.

Great pads. I ripped my 661 arm pads when wiping out the other day, so I got these, and they are way more comfortable, offer better protection, and they don't move around much. They don't really dover your forearm, but that is one of the last places I am worried about. When you wipe out, your elbows take the brunt of the fall, so you should be well protected. Bottom line - great product,, go buy them!

Strength:

Good protection

Weakness:

velcro came unstitched after 3 rides, shoddy workmanship! not a good fit for larger arms

Fox wouldn't fix because they were 3 months out of warranty. I'm pissed and won't buy from them again.

Strength:

Look and Work Excellent!

Weakness:

I wish they went down to my wrist and had a strap. However that is my personal preference.

I'm glad I read the reviews here before buying. These turned out to be a 5, when I thought I would hate them. I was doing some trials on the first day out with them, and I went over bars onto a log. I threw my arms out and I didn't feel a thing. No more road rash... Not to mention that they are super comfortable with or without long sleves. You'll forget you have them on until you need them. Thanks MTB Review and Fox!
