motorcross pads?
There are a few things that come to mind. These guys don't fall that much, but when they do, it is really bad. I am guessing these pads are designed to withstand a few bad falls, but not everyday wear and tear. Also, I know they bend their knees, but I wonder if it is in the same way we do? I know the newer skate helmets are designed to protect you from a bad fall, but I don't think they are meant to keep being worn. I hit my head so hard when I broke my elbow and I probably should not be wearing my helmet anymore. They have designed them so that it hurts way more when you hit your head, but I guess they protect your brain better. I miss the cushiony protec helmets.

: Think you hit the nailon the head,good for abrasion but probably not the best for impact and proly wouldn't last too long on concrete either,but you never know..

: : 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.
