Best of the best.

Offering top-tier protection on rugged trails and fast tracks, the G-Form Elite Elbow Guards deliver breathable, lightweight, and added safety for all-day riding or race-day performance. Crafted with a moisture-wicking compression fabric, these elbow pads maintain a snug, secure fit that won't be soaked with sweat after pedaling for less than an hour. Body-mapped, impact-absorbing RPT pads take a licking and keep on ticking after you get bucked over berms or the handlebars. Top and bottom silicone gripper bands further ensure a locked-in fit that doesn't slip when you're cranking away on the trail, and the technical mesh back panels boost breathability and add more wicking comfort for a cool, dry feel.

  • RPT pads absorb impact and are body-mapped for max performance
  • Sun-protection in form of UPF 50 defends against UV rays

Hopped on the G Wagon!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I just got into mountain biking in the last couple of months. I was skeptical of the technology. I took my first fall last week and was impressed with the protection these bad boys gave me! They are light weight and comfortable and feel super comfortable confident when riding. I think it is worth the money to get the Elite version for that extra coverage & confidence.

Light Duty Trail Protection

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Have been using these pads most recently in Moab and have been very impressed so far.
I am a particular fan of how small these pack down to keep in your pack for the descent down, they provide arm warmer type warmth on the colder rides and certainly do not take away from mobility in the arms or elbows.

I must say that I have not crashed hard on these pads and don't feel that they will hold the test of time if you will be on your elbows or in the rocks much.

They are a go-to pad for that piece of mind protection 'just in case' but feel a harder shell pad would be a better option for someone looking to spend a good amount of time shredding the local bike park.

Very tight and grabbed my skin

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

i am a big g-form fan. i have several sets of G-form pro-x mountain biking pads. i ordered these and they are different. far less comfortable. the pro-x is made of full neoprene material, like a sock. it is comfortable and consistent in its tension. these pads have a different material sewn into the back side (none of the pictures show it) that is less stretchy and more "grabby". it pinches the skin a bit. these would be more for competitive downhill where you only wear them for a short period and want them to absolutely stay in place. The pro-x will slip a bit more, but are much more appropriate for all mountain, longer rides.

Great Pads!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These pads are super comfortable, stay put while riding and move well with you. Cleaning is a snap as the material is light and hangs dry quickly.

Great for Riding

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had these for most of the summer and I love them. They are super easy to get on and off and stretch to fit your forearm and bicep. They breath pretty well for elbow pads and once they are on you do not even remember you are wearing them when you're riding. If you are looking for a new set of elbow pads that wont break the bank check these out.

Comfortable and Breathable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love these G-Form pads. They are lightweight, super comfortable, and they wick moisture pretty well. The padding is like a soft rubber material so they flex with you on every movement. Upon impact, the material hardens up to protect you. I haven't seen a more comfortable elbow pad. The Elite will provide a little more protection than the Pro-X Elbow Pad.

Protection that is comfy!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I must say these are definitely the most comfiest padding that I have used. If you are debating if you should go with the pro-x or the elite I would highly recommend the Elite! They have more padding around the elbow then the pro-x and work absolutely amazing on impact. If you want comfortable padding that is lightweight and can still protect you then these are definitely worth the money.
