The moment you realize you've forgotten to put knee guards on after already lacing your shoes is never a good one, especially because by that point, your mind is usually already out the door.

7 Protection Transition Wrap Knee Guard 7 Protection Transition Wrap Knee Guard
You started out riding only smooth XC singletrack, doing some light trail riding now and then, and telling yourself knee guards were overkill for the kind of riding you were doing. But that was years ago, and as mountain bikes have become more discipline defying, so have you. Don't leave your knees bare and unprotected in the line of duty--encase them in 7 Protection's Transition Wrap Knee Guard to make sure a routine tip-over in a tough switchback doesn't leave you spending the weekend wrapped in gauze. For it's most minimal knee armor, 7 Protection uses a stretchy blend of polyester and spandex to keep the Transition breathable and well-suited to trail rides when you don't want to be weighed down by DH pads.

Alpinestars Alps 2 Knee/Shin Guards Alpinestars Alps 2 Knee/Shin Guards
Pads can be a pain in the ass right up until you land on your front wheel, go over the bars, and manage to land both face and knees first onto a pile of rocks. Alpinestars' Alps 2 Knee/Shin Guards won't save your face, but their PE foam padding and aramid fiber will protect your lower limbs from impact and abrasion, so your legs don't end up looking like someone took a cheese grater to them. (Your face is on its own, though.) Because the padding is made of rugged foam, the Alps 2 stays flexible so you can ride comfortably, and its soft lining stays comfortable against your skin and helps prevent sweat from building up. Less sweat means less slipping, but Alpinestars also treated the liner with a silicone print to help it remain in place. Elastic hook-and-loop straps at the top and bottom of the Alps 2 lock it down further, and strategic stretch mesh also works to keep the Alps from sliding around, so you can focus on riding and not on pads that have slipped down around your ankles.

The Lycra and mesh design keeps you cool and dry, just like a traditional liner, but the foam padding over the hips, thighs, and tailbones takes the sting out of crashes of all shapes and sizes. An extra layer of hard PU over the hips and thighs provides extra protection for your bones, and the elastic waist and leg grippers keep the Bionic from sliding around without pinching your skin or rubbing you the wrong way.

Alpinestars Comp Pro Shorts Alpinestars Comp Pro Shorts
Some body armor can be a real pain. Because of poor design, it can be hot and clunky, hindering movement and pinching uncomfortably. Alpinestars has been designing body armor long enough to avoid these pitfalls. Its Comp Pro Shorts are designed with breathable four-way stretch mesh fabric and three different types of impact foam, strategically placed to offer maximum protection without getting in your way or binding up.Alpinestars started the Comp Pro Shorts with a four-way stretch mesh body. The mesh allows air to flow freely through the short to keep you cool. This synthetic material also pulls sweat away from your body to keep you dry and eliminate the clammy feeling that some materials can give you. Four-way stretch allows the fabric to move in any direction, so the shorts won't bind while you move. This stretch property also makes the short more durable, because it stretches instead of tearing, and (with a little help from silicone grippers at the waist and thighs), keeps the short from sliding around on your body while you ride. The main body of fabric was designed with a relaxed fit that feels natural in the normal riding position. This relaxed fit is less intrusive than a compression short, which can be comfortable, but isn't necessary for DH and freeriding. Three different types of impact foam, including high-absorption and EVA Memory Foam, were used to provide protection. These were strategically placed to provide protection in the most vulnerable and the most frequently injured areas of the body while allowing a full range of motion. Protection is focused at the hips, the thighs, and the tailbone areas.Alpinestars Pro Comp Shorts come in Black and are available in sizes Small through XX-Large.

Bliss Protection Comp Knee Pad Bliss Protection Comp Knee Pad
Bliss Protection tailors its Comp line to riders who are drawn to the steep and nasty stuff, so if you continuously find yourself staring down high-angled descents that leave most of your ride crew finding an alternate route, pay attention to the Comp Knee Pad, as it was made for you. Throw the combination knee and shin guard on before a ride and skip the step of integrating separate pads together, instead just using the top hook-and-loop strap to adjust fit around your upper leg. Bliss Protection uses its ARG foam to create areas of impact-protection around the knee and shin, topping it with highly durable KEVLAR around the knee cap to ready the area for scrapes and brushes against rock. This protection is offset with a mesh panel behind the knee to allow some welcome airflow into the setup. A lightweight Lycra chassis will leave you with plenty of freedom to pedal, while additional EVA foam padding around the sides of the shin and above the knee keep you covered during bigger crashes.

Bliss Protection Team Elbow Pad Bliss Protection Team Elbow Pad
Designed for Bliss Protection's gravity team, the Team Elbow pad was made for riders who unabashedly refuse to pedal uphill, offering lightweight, solid protection for big sends and lift-accessed, apocalyptic lines. Bliss Protection's athletes trust this model on the DH race circuit, so wear the Elbow Pad confidently knowing that it's capable of handling pro-level descents. For comparison's sake, the Elbow Pad was built to Bliss Protection's highest level of coverage, so you'll lose some mobility with it compared to more minimal options. With that tradeoff, however, you'll gain a capable barrier that's built on a breathable, stretchy chassis that meets CE safety standards. Hook-and-loop straps let you customize fit, too, so once you dial in the right feel, you'll be able to focus on your ride without having to stop and tug a slipping elbow pad back in place.

Bliss' Team line is the same stuff that outfits the Bliss DH race squadron in, so you know it's prepared to take on more than its fair share of abuse. A stretchy, breathable neoprene chassis keeps moisture from building up on hot days, while adjustable straps let you fine tune the fit to avoid slipping and bunching. Bliss Protection's absorbent synARG foam stands between your kneecap and whatever arrangement of rock, root, and gravel you happen to crash on top of, and it's covered by a rugged strip of KEVLAR for longevity.

Instead of carrying a first aid kit with you whenever you head for the lifts, accept that you're crash-prone and up your on-trail coverage with Bliss Protection's Vertical Extended Knee Pad. The name says it all: rather than just being a knee guard, this pad provides upper leg protection and extends past your knee cap towards the middle of your shin. Made with a lightweight, breathable Lycra chassis and a mesh-backed knee area, it won't trap heat or inhibit your pedal stroke. With the top hook-and-loop strap, you'll be able to fine-tune the fit so it stays secure when you're barreling into the deep stuff. Additional KEVLAR at the knee equips the guard to handle scrapes against rougher trail features, while flatlock stitching and silicone grips combine to make the pad something that's easy to integrate into your kit.

While not as rigid as the Armourgel used at the back, EVA foam panels along the chest area work to shield you far more than a basic jersey would in the event of a front-side landing. When you're not using the padding, an airy mesh back and streamlined fit prevent overheating, pulling moisture away from your skin and allowing much-needed airflow. If you find yourself wishing for a more secure fit, take along the detachable belt to fine-tune fit along the midsection.

Fox Racing Launch Pro D3O Elbow Guard Fox Racing Launch Pro D3O Elbow Guard
The D30 protective inserts at the heart of Fox Racing's Launch Pro D30 Elbow Guard solve the dilemma of padding vs flexibility. D30 is a wacky polymer that is flexible under slow, non-calamitous energy inputs--think bending your elbow. Under the shock of sudden impact, though, the material stiffens to absorb and diffuse energy before returning to its pliant, non-impact form. We know that all sounds too good to be true, but, well, it's true. The stuff works. And in order to keep it working through multiple impacts and seasons of abuse, Fox shields it with an abrasion-resistant, replaceable cap.

A rugged Aramid outer layer stands up to brushes with unfriendly trail furniture, while moisture-wicking fabrics promise to keep Junior from overheating mid-ride.

POC Hip VPD 2.0 Ski Shorts POC Hip VPD 2.0 Ski Shorts
You're probably not a geriatric, so your hips don't rank high on your list of things that need protection while hucking. However, regardless of your age, you'll find that the ability to walk is pretty important. The POC Hip VPD 2. 0 Ski Shorts add a protective layer that won't inhibit your movement in the snow. These shorts can be difference between an ouch-and-rub or a two week leave of absence from the hill. Made from a super-stretchy, ventilated mesh, the Hip VPD shorts are flexible and won't affect your freedom of movement. Treated with the odor-resistant Polygiene, the shorts stay fresh after a day of riding hard. For protection, the three-ply Visco Elastic Polymer Dough (VPD) inserts conform to the body and stiffen when impact is applied. And though the material is soft and flexible, it can absorb an incredible amount of shock and dissipate the energy of a brash fall. The inserts have a slim profile and fit under shorts and pants without being bulky. And whether you're hucking yourself over snowy cliffs or bombing a descent through the aspens, they provide a high level of protection for your hips and tailbone. The POC Hip VPD 2. 0 Ski Shorts are available in the color Black and in sizes Small, Medium, and Large.

POC Spine VPD Air Vest POC Spine VPD Air Vest
Giving your spine some extra protection when you're getting ready for a day of lift rides and big descents doesn't have to mean wrapping yourself in a bubble of unwieldy protection. If you're loathe to let go of your freedom of movement on the trail but know you need some extra reinforcement, we'd recommend the POC Spine VPD Air Vest. A first for the brand this year, the Spine Air follows a similar design to its beefier Spine VPD siblings on a slimmer, lighter platform. A mesh front takes advantage of the breeze you'll earn as you blast downhill to keep you cool, while a wide removable waistband allows you to streamline the fit even further if you choose. The three-layer VPO Air back protector even gets in on the ventilated fun, with holes carved throughout to facilitate airflow without impacting its ability to shield you when you go a little bigger than intended.

Scott Grenade EVO Knee Guards Scott Grenade EVO Knee Guards
The Scott Grenade EVO Knee Guards provide a nearly unicorn-like balance of flexibility and protection so you can dust off and get back in the saddle after things get a little bit too sideways. Their D30 padding utilizes what Scott refers to as "intelligent molecules" to remain flexible for comfort and free range of motion while pedaling or generally moving around in the world. Upon impact, those molecules lock to create a rigid surface that dissipates energy and provides a sturdy barrier against roots, rocks, and other trail furniture. A combination of neoprene and stretchy, breathable mesh completes the package, with adjustable elastic straps holding it all in place so you can focus on the run without worries of shifting pads.

Six Six One Rage Hard Knee Guard Six Six One Rage Hard Knee Guard
We hate to break it to you, but your knees will definitely come in contact with the ground at some time on the trails -- it's a given. Investing in a pair of Rage Hard Knee Guards is a great way to avoid buying boxes of bandages after every ride, and they're lightweight and flexible enough that they won't slow you down on the days you happen to stay upright. The Rage Hards position a protective cap and EVA foam cushioning over the patella to help absorb impact if -- or rather, when things get a little crazy. The trade-off for added cushioning is a sacrifice in pedaling mobility, but we think it's a small price to pay, especially on the downhills. Six Six One constructs the back of the guard out of stretchy, moisture-wicking mesh to lessen bunching while you pedal and to promote ventilation. Expect the knee guards to have a contoured shape overall that won't move around once you've pulled them on and secured them with the hook-and-loop straps.

Six Six One Rage Pressure Suit Six Six One Rage Pressure Suit
The Six Six One Rage Pressure Suit keeps you protected when you're smashing out laps in the bike park, or hammering shuttle runs with the boys. The spine protection and chest protector are a barrier that comes between your core and whatever immovable objects you happen to tumble into. And because the elbow pads are attached, you don't have to worry about them slipping down, so they'll be exactly where you need them, when you need them most. An articulating ABS plastic back panel is held in place by the jacket, as well as a compressive kidney belt, and it makes ragdolling through rock gardens a considerably less painful affair than it otherwise might be. EVA foam works with the ABS plastic to absorb and distribute impact forces, and it is perforated to let airflow reduce your core's temperature on hotter days. This chassis securely and comfortably holds the Rage's shoulder and ABS elbow pads in place. Ensuring the pads don't migrate during an impact are hook-and-loop straps at the forearm, and one that connects the chest plate to shoulder pads for fine tuning. It's similar in appearance to the less-expensive Comp compression suit, but it has a greater degree of ventilation, which you'll appreciate after being cooped up in this suit for hours at a time under the sweltering summer sun.The Six Six One Rage Pressure Suit comes in Black and in five sizes, from Small, to X-large.

Troy Lee Designs LPS 4600 Shorts Troy Lee Designs LPS 4600 Shorts
Nobody likes wearing body armor. It's heavy and hot. It feels unnatural and binds up, restricting movement. Well, most body armor is like that. Because most protection is so uncomfortable, the good folks at Troy Lee Designs teamed up with their friends at Shock Doctor to create lightweight, comfortable body armor. The result is a full line of protection that you won't even know you're wearing until you're upside down six feet above the ground and your bike is nowhere to be found. One element of this line of products is the Troy Lee Designs LPS 4600 Short. The LPS 4600 protects the hips, thighs, and tailbone area with a lightweight, low-profile design that stays cool and comfortable and won't bind or move around. TLD started the LPS 4600 with a four-way stretch mesh body. The mesh allows air to flow freely through the short to keep you cool. This synthetic material also pulls sweat away from your body to keep you dry and eliminate the clammy feeling that some materials can give you. Four-way stretch allows the fabric to move in any direction, so the shorts won't bind while you move. This stretch property also makes the short more durable, because it stretches instead of tearing, and (with a little help from silicone grippers), keeps the short from sliding around on your body while you ride. The main body of fabric was designed with a relaxed fit that feels natural in the normal riding position. This relaxed fit is less intrusive than a compression short, which can be comfortable, but isn't necessary for DH and freeriding. The protection side of things is provided by Troy Lee's low-profile foam panels. These panels are designed to ride close to the skin without the bulky feeling that thick pads and hard shells are infamous for. The panels are cut into natural-feeling anatomic shapes that move comfortably with the body. Padding is provided for the thighs, hips, and in back at the tailbone area. TLD also included tapered legs that keep the short from riding up with...
