Send it without fear.
Whether or not you ever enter an Enduro race, there’s no denying that the Fox Launch Enduro Elbow Guards are a step in the right direction. Gone are the days of bulky, skate-style elbow pads that were more restrictive than protective. The Launch Enduros consist of a soft pad mounted to what amounts to an arm warmer — in other words, they’re unrestrictive, yet provide a great deal of protection against the bumps and bruises you’re likely to face on the trail. Isn’t progress great?
The Launch Enduro starts out with a perforated neoprene sleeve at the outside of your arm, and a lightweight stretch panel on the inside. The inner panel is built from a dense mesh, which helps to evacuate sweat and excess heat, while the perforated neoprene outside helps to keep the pad locked in place, instead of slipping down your arm mid-run. The soft elbow pad has an abrasion-resistant shell, which enhances durability. And the pre-curved shape means that you won’t have to deal with excess bunching or pulling. After all, riding is dynamic, and it helps when your pads work with you.
The Fox Launch Enduro Elbow Guards are available in four sizes, from Small to X-Large, and in the colors Black and Grey.
