Go up, go down, and don't get hurt.
The Transition Elbow Guards are the lightest, most flexible elbow pads
that 7 Protection makes, so they're perfect for riders who are looking for moderate protection in a pedal-friendly package. The Transition ditches straps
and cinches in favor of a simple, stretchy pull-on sleeve, which
incorporates mesh panels for ventilation and plenty of spandex for a
secure fit. A soft one-millimeter pad covers the kneecap for impact
protection, while soft foam around the edges provides abrasion protection
while allowing plenty of airflow.
Maybe the best feature of
the Transition Guards, though, are their pack-ability. Since they're made with soft
foams and padding, they easily roll up and stash in a backpack or
even a jersey pocket, so you can go pad-free on the climb but pull the
Transition on for some peace of mind on rocky, technical descents.
