ION Protection E_PACT Elbow Guards, Black

The E_PACT Elbow Guards have been designed with a pre-shaped, almost 90Β° angle to reduce fatigue and provide a wrinkle-free fit. Have you ever gone for a downhill ride and kept your arms straight? Neither have we. Freedom of movement is the most important function an elbow guard needs to offer, so ION went back and integrated the simple but unmatched hard cap in combination with high quality memory foam padding for optimal protection and comfort. As the human body is neither cylindrical nor symmetrical ION disregarded flat 2D patterns and instead used their expertise in tailoring body-fitting wetsuits to shape anatomic fitting pads for a natural riding position, they call this an Ionic fit. For additional breathability the guards are constructed with a perforated neoprene fabric called Airprene. Also used in the construction is a synthetic fibre called Power Aramid. Originally developed by DuPont, today it’s used for a range of applications from bulletproof helmets via tires to bow strings. It offers outstanding tear resistance and tensile strength. The main SAS-TEC performance padding is famous for its cushioning characteristics; the 3D-protectors are made of a visco elastic soft foam consisting of thousands and thousands of tiny foam bubbles, offering incredible shock absorption values. They are multi-impact compliant, adapt to body contours and are heat resistant. The guards have also undergone ION’s Anti-Smell Sanitized treatment to provide long lasting freshness. The E_PACT is your reliable partner for home trail rides, bike park adventures and high-speed backcountry descents!SAS-TEC Performance PaddingAirprene PaddingHD Memory FoamIonic FitPower AramidAnti-Smell Sanitized Treatment
