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.
Thanks to its pre-shaped structure, the protection pad adapts to the lateral and longitudinal axis of the joints, allowing freedom of movement in all directions. The pad can be easily removed for cleaning.
Aramid is an extremely robust and sturdy fiber. This amped up version more tightly woven than it's predecessor. Thanks to it tear-resistance and tenstile strength it finds application in all kinds of protective gear and keeps up with anything from sharp rocks to high-speed crashes.
