The UFO Plast Enduro Elbow guard are pretty much the cat’s meow, I never go for rides without them. They are lightweight, comfortable, ergonomic, provide great tree and brush protection while riding and of course provide great protection when crashing. I rarely notice that I am wearing them.
The UFO Plast Enduro Knee-Shin guard are also lightweight, comfortable, and provide great protection when crashing. I only used them for downhilling and technical riding. They did tend to wander down on your legs while riding, which was a bit annoying, and if you ended up pedaling a lot they could rub the back of your knee a bit.
The UFO Plast Enduro body armor series is a great product, that will suit All Trail riders or anyone whom rides technical terrain and wants some armor protection. I feel naked if I am not wearing the Elbow pads on any ride!
-Excellent brush and tree protection
-Adequate crash protection
