Stay in place and offer great coverage

I have always had issues finding pads that stay in place and offer good protection, usually those things don't got hand in hand, thankfully POC has stepped in and filled that void.

The first time I wore these I found them to be a bit uncomfortable but after a couple rides they broke in and actually became really comfortable.

There are a couple of things i would change, one is to have it go a bit lower on the forearm to offer a bit more protection and the other is to make them more breathable. On hot days you are hyper aware that you are wearing these pads. But those two things should not stop you from getting these, the fact that they stay in place and are so comfortable outweighs those issues.

They run kind of small so I would say if you are on the edge, go to the next size up.
