|One guy that skates inlines, swears that these are better then skating pads and more maneuverable then the vert pads for skating. Since motorcross you crash at 100mph, they are much better at protection he said. I said they look good for abrasions, but doesnt look like they would handle impact. I went with what works with other vert skaters. Any thoughts/opinions to these? For me personally, if I could find a pad that was better and wasnt bigger then my whole body, I wouldnt mind. Plus they cost less then $40. But I dont think they would do me good.
