ION's new E-Lite offers elbow protection for enduro-oriented riding. The removable E-L1 Lite pad provides more than just abrasion protection and handles light to medium impacts easily. The pre-shaped pad follows the natural form of the elbow and offers an ergonomic fit. A no-sew abrasion-resistant layer on the front enables the sliding ability of the pads so they don't ride up in contact with the ground. The extremely durable and tightly woven Aramid material adds up to the sturdiness. Another contribution to protection is the EVA side padding which absorbs impacts from the sides.
