Leg armor is not just meant for the gravity scene anymore. In this day and age of more capable bikes and trails that are made to test your limits, it’s not a question of if you’re going to crash, but when. Having the right leg armor will go a long way in making sure that you can get back up from a crash unscathed. Jenson has a wide variety of leg armor to choose from, including those from such brands as G-Form, Race Face, Fox and Troy Lee Designs. Each one is designed to provide you with the best protection possible while still maintaining a high level of comfort.
Whether you’re a hardcore Freerider or Downhiller, or a weekend warrior who enjoys getting their climb on, there is a pad for you. If you like the idea of a pad that has less bulk, then you might want to consider armor such has those offered by G-Form. G-Form pads are great for all types of riding, especially if you’re going to be pedaling a lot. It is soft, lightweight and flexible, but do a great job of protecting you from impacts. If you’re looking for something a little more robust, the Alpinestars Moab should meet your needs. This hardy set of pads is great for downhill and freeride, or wherever a more robust set of pads are needed.
When picking the right pads for you, there are a couple of things you should consider. Like what type of rider are you? Do you like flying down technical downhills, with your hair on fire, or do you like the serenity of rolling backwoods singletrack? Do you need a pad that is more breathable or one that offers more protection? If you are going to be doing a ride with a lot of climbing or pedaling you may want to trade more protection for something lightweight and breathable. On the other hand, if you are taking the lifts to the top and then counting on gravity to do all the work, you can get by with a much hardier pad that does a better job at protecting you from impacts and abrasions. Whatever your needs, Jenson is sure to have the right armor for the job. Dial up one of our expert Gear Advisors today at 888-880-3811 with any questions.
