I've been riding and racing in these knee/shin guards for the last year and they are definitely my favorite. I've used D30 pads in the past, but when I would fall on chunky rocks I would essentially stick to the rock and take all of the impact, and end up with a large bruise because the impact was spread out. But the Alpinestars Moab is resilient and the hard exterior shell allows me to glance off those chunky rocks.
I broke a rear triangle on a DH bike after going OTB on a chunky rollover, despite the damage to the bike I was completely fine, I know my lower leg took a lot of the impact and I'm glad I had these guards on.
These knee/shin pads are awesome and I would recommend them to anyone who rides DH.
Well, I took a digger in the woods and wound up smashing my shin open. I ended up with stitches, an infection, tetnis shot, and a 2 inch long chunck of wood lodged behind my shin. After years of riding, I decided that maybe I should get some pads, since this injury put me off my bike for about 7 weeks. I've never ridden with knee/shin guards until now, so can't compare to any others. I wore the Moabs on a frosty ride yesterday for about ten miles of rocky CT trails, and I will say that they felt pretty good. After only a few minutes, they became virtually unnoticeable to me. I'd imagine they'll feel better with time as they break in. Sizing is pretty true, I'm 5'11" and the S/M fit me. My measurements are in between sizes, but I figured the straps will stretch a bit. Overall good buy.
Rode with them the other day, they're light but the strap going behind the knee is not comfortable to wear at all. If I hadn't got them muddy I would return them. Ankle fits great as does the calf, but the knee area when bending is not comfortable.
