I need some padding to give me more chance of leaving my knees and elbows in one piece.
Trouble is ive never used any pads before and i have zero idea what to look for..
Also, my legs in particular are like tree trunks extraordinaire.. One stranger recently commented in a queue i was standing in " the only man I've met with a postcode for each calf"
I also like to ride 3 or 4 hours up and down dale so i reckon harder shell gear is out of the question.
So, can you please advise where I should be looking for lightweight pads suitable for an XC type mincer with super wide pins?
For reference i tried a pair of Endura summink-or-others the other day in XL, could barely get them over my foot let alone up my leg..
