Slayer Elbow Pad

They're light, low-profile, and rugged, with a design that keeps them from sliding around and enough protection to save your elbows from injury and abrasion when you take a tumble down a desert wash or get friendly with a rocky mountain singletrack trail. Soft foam padding flexes with you while fly around berms and navigate rugged terrain, and four-way stretch mesh fabric manages moisture and breathes well to keep you dry and cool. In fact, they're so comfy, you might just forget they're there.

Go with largest size measurement

I've used it several times
Runs small
Size Bought
170 lbs

I measured as medium for the upper measurement for the knee and elbow pads and as large for the lower measurement for each. I went with the large and am glad I did. I wear these mainly for lift-served downhill riding. If I were to use them for normal rides, I'd pull them down for the climbs and put them in place for extended downhill sections. They saved me the first time out. Two times down one run on some steep sharp corners my bike slid out and I ended up sliding on my knees and elbows. No abrasions, not even a bruise. Without the pads, I'm sure I would have come away with bad, bleeding abrasions.

Heed the advice and order a size up

Size Bought
160 lbs

I disregarded reviews recommending ordering a size larger. I should have listened. The measurements listed are incorrect. After exchanging for a large (I'm 5'11", 160-ish, lean build), I started using the pads immediately. Yes, you'll sweat in them, but they've stayed up on my arms (still a little snug, but not overly tight). I have had one minor crash since using them, and I landed on my elbow at an angle. They worked as advertised. For the price, and for not having adjustable forearm and biceps sections, they're a good buy.

Good quality but runs small

I returned this product before using it
Runs small
Size Bought
5` 7"
150 lbs

They seem pretty well made but run very small. I am 5’7”, weigh 150 lbs with an average build...not skinny but not crazy muscular. I ordered a size medium and could barely get it Up over my elbow. Super tight and just too uncomfortable to even try the other arm. Sending back for a size large which seems crazy as I don’t wear a size large in anything. Unless you have very skinny arms I would go up a size.
