UFO Plast – lightweight elbow guards

As I was wandering around Dirt Demo seeking some shade and cold refreshments, and I bumped into this small booth that was carrying body armor. UFO Plast is an Italian company that started out making body armor protection for off road motorcycles, and they now make body armor for biking and snowboarding. As I was talking with the exhibitor I saw these intriguing looking elbow pads hanging on their tent.UFO

  • How much? How out some elbow padswould one acquire a set? I recently had a friend take a slow speed digger to the elbow that resulted in a 2 or 3 day hospital stay and massive antibiotics!! So I have been thinking about some elbow pads….

    Where can we purchase these? Online sites? I am looking for a pair.

    LOL! Do they also make armor to protect your carbon bike when you crash???

    Seriously though, they look like interesting XC pads, but foam/cloth doesn’t hold up very well to repeated crashes. They would be great if you only took occasional diggers though. Did you get a pair?

    I am doing a long term test with the elbow pads so I will see how they stand the test of time and multiple crashes.

    I will check with the UFO Plast guy’s where they can be purchased. I think they were around $15-18. They are a new product so they might be hard to find?
