Bikes are getting burlier; more travel, bigger wheels and the tracks they shred are getting equally more challenging so body protection has become ever more important in the world of mountain biking.
Of course, you have helmets which are the minimum amount of protection you should be wearing on the trails, followed my knees, elbows and the like. So, taking helmets out of the equation, you have the rest of your body to consider protecting, fortunately, G-Form has you covered.
Catering to a range of action sports, G-Form has a fairly extensive bike range of protection for men, women and children. By combining breathable compression fabrics which impact protection materials, G-Form has been able to create almost full outfits for mountain bikers providing adequate protection to all your vital parts.
G-Form women’s MTB Protection
Let’s start at the elbows. I know many riders who just won’t bother with elbow protection because it’s too restrictive, it doesn’t fit well under clothing or it just doesn’t look ‘cool’ enough – I’ve heard it all and yet, leg or arm, damaging either of them is a total pain in the butt to your daily life.
G-Form’s Elite Elbow Guards are like no other elbow pad I’ve tried before. Instead of velcro straps for placement, G-Form has used a moisture-wicking, UPF 50+ compression fabric which hugs your skin comfortably with the help of soft silicone strips around the cuff.
The protective padding itself is constructed from body-mapped, impact-absorbing RPT® material which is CE certified for motorcyclist/bicyclist [CE EN 1621-1:2012]. While the padding is like a series of chunky jello cubes patterns around the garment, they are soft to squidge and the layout of their arrangement ensures mobility isn’t restricted.
