The most important protection for the upper body when mountain biking are elbow pads! Because the elbow is often the first to take a blow in a fall, elbow pads are indispensable to MTB riders. An elbow pad should cover the elbow and arm as much as possible, while remaining light and as compact as possible.
There are several types of elbow pads: flexible, reinforced with a rigid shell, elbow pads that can be slipped on and surround the arm or elbow pads that can be attached to the side: there is something for everyone. There are also elbow pads that extend down to the forearm, promising optimal arm protection. A mountain bike elbow pad can be easily worn with long or short sleeve mountain bike jerseys. Here you will find elbow pads from leading mountain bike brands such as Ion, Scott or Poc.
