Why should you buy elbow pads?
Head, knees, wrists and elbows are the four places on the body that most people tend to spend some energy trying to protect. In this section, you will find our selection of elbow guards for maximum elbow protection. Many people often neglect the importance of protecting the elbows. If you hurt your elbow joint, this can turn out to be a lifelong disorder, which you will never recover 100 pct. from.
Does elbow pads limit the range of motion?
A few years ago a set of elbow pads was very uncomfortable and made it impossible for the user to get a full range of movement.
Today elbow protection is designed and optimized for improved fit to allow more freedom of movement. At the same time, modern elbow pads are produced in materials that enable the skin to breathe, making it possible to wear them for longer periods of time - even in hot weather.
Some models have a flat-designed look that you can wear under your shirt if you don’t want them to be visible. This, for example, applies to the pads and sleeves from G-Form which are especially flat and can easily be worn underneath your clothes.
Here at SkatePro we always recommend people to use a full set of protective gear that includes everything from helmet, knee- and elbow pads and wrist-protection. If you are looking for a complete set of protective gear, we recommend that you check out this section.
