I was able to pick these up on sale for $23 bucks. They are good for x-country and maybe some endoro. I would not use them for downhill. If you come off your bike it will give you a little padding and separate you from the ground, but not take a hard impact. When you first get them the pad is very flat and does not seem like it will form to your knee or leg. Wear them for about a half hour and it will conform to your knee. It stays that way after you take it off as well. If you are comparing this to the One Industries Exo knee/shin guard which is very similar. The Exo forms a bit better to your knee right off the bat. It has slightly thinner padding and is also a little softer which is not good for impact. overall, especially if you can get these on sale go with the Six Six one
I like the fit. stays put and does not feel bulky when your riding. The material is a little itchy, thinking of wearing a very light shirt under it to keep it off my skin. Will make it easier to get off when your all sweaty too. The back protector is less intrusive then some others and not even bothersome on the lift when your leaning on it. I wish the shoulder pads were a little bigger and the chest pads were a little thicker. They will help you out in a fall but are far from the think hard padding. Overall I am happy with it. Took one fall on my shoulder and it helped take the impact. It's not going to give you that all out protection of the full, hard padded jerseys, but will give you decent protection and you won't ever heat on a hot day, it won't weigh you down and you forget your wearing it which is always nice
I got this in the mail last week. Tired it on and it seems to fit pretty well, does not feel bulky, shoulder pads seem like they would protect you but not too large or stiff. Chest pad is on the thinner side and is just soft foam. As the other review states, the shirt is kind of itchy. I have another sub gear shirt that is a different material and is way less itchy. I haven't used it yet for DH, I would probably wear a very thin shirt under it to help the itch.
I just got these earlier this week and have 2 day mountain biking on them. Everything I have read about Five Ten biking shoes is that they stick like glue because of there special sole. They do grip very well on the petals, but not all that much more than my DC shoes I had been using. That being said I'm happy about it. I had read that they grip so well that you have a hard time moving your foot on the petal. What I have loved so far is that they have a very stiff sole and feel so solid on my feet when riding. I would say they made some improvement in my riding they feel so good. They feel much more solid on your feet then the Five Ten Freeride. They are on sale right now so pick them up.
Great pump. super compact and easy to use. not a single complaint and have used it many times
Never knew this existed before I found it on backcountry. Makes drying out your hydration pack super easy. buy it!
