I have used this product before. They work excellent for coverage and they do not move. They will loosen up after several washes. I have tried other brands of elbow guards and these are the best.
Well made, but I personally didn't find them very comfortable. It was hard to position them on your arm, and when placed as they were intended... that is where they were the least comfortable. Ended up with the elbow and forearm pad both on my forearm. I stretched out the elastic around the bicep to relieve some pressure as well, but still didn't allow me to wear them in the proper place comfortably. I probably will not use these very much. I am of stocky build with short arms, but far from what I would call large biceps. I will find a skinny tall friend to give these to!
Love these guards. I have had several pairs and currently about to order my 3rd pair. Guards stay in place and wear them under the jersey. I typically order a medium so that the are snug to the arm. Like the sleek feel with no straps. Highly recommend.
I have worn these trail riding and desert racing. The EVSs are very good at staying in place while riding, and have good coverage, however, they don't offer much protection. During a race I put the bike down in a gravel wash and landed on a big rock. Most of the impact was absorbed by my ribs, but my elbow pad spun around leaving it exposed to the rock, OUCH! Such is life racing a dirtbike!
I can see the bennefit from these, make sure you get the correct size. Mine are pretty tight around my arm and constricts circulation and I get arm pump quick.
I have tried at least 5 types of elbow guards and always found myself pulling them back up into position after a few jumps, then I tried these guards. They stay put and do not cause arm pump like the ones that have straps that criss-cross your arms. I do not notice them while riding and they are very light. My only complaint is that you have to wear them under your jersey so you have to yank your jersey off to take them off. I am 5'10" and weigh 170 and have 16.5" upper arms and the medium fits perfectly.
If you ride a dirtbike/ATV, buy these gaurds !! Its a full sleeve, very comfortable and they do not move on impact. I have had EVS Elbow Gaurds for over 5 years, they always do what its supposed to do, at a reasonable price too. EVS, its a smart choice.....
