The one ride our tester forgot his G-Forms and left his elbow pads in his backpack, he came away with a bloody souvenir on his forearm. The moral of the story? Don’t be a dunce, and wear elbow pads.
If you’re unaccustomed to riding with elbow pads, G-Form is the perfect way to start. The sleeve-style pads slide on easily and feel like you’re wearing a comfortable compression shirt. While many other pad companies rely on failure-prone, potentially uncomfortable Velcro straps, G-Form has simplified the formula with this next-level compression technology (so long as you size them correctly — important!).
Though noticeably slimmer than other pads on the market, G-Form’s RPT material stiffens upon impact, providing serious cushioning at the moment you need it most.
If you are used to wearing elbow pads, consider slimming down with G-Form’s Pro Pads. You can also complete your armor arsenal with their knee pads and compression shirts.
Tester Comment: “They aren’t that noticeable, even on the climb. They’re light, unobtrusive, but after taking a couple tumbles on some tough terrain in the Basque Country and coming out unharmed, I began to trust them, and trust my riding, and that’s when I began to improve my skills.
