O'Neal Flow Knee and Elbow Guards
O'Neal's Flow knee and elbow guards are the brands' lightest weight protection sleeves. They utilize IPX soft gel technology for mobility and protection. The pads are in a lycra sock sleeve and ideal for all-day riding according to O'Neal. They're minimalist and easy to stash in a pack when they're not needed. There's additional ventilation on the back of the knee for extra comfort.
I've had the pads on hand for a number of rides now and can attest that they are incredibly comfortable. The sleeve keeps them nicely in place when pedaling and there are no pinch or hot spots. Out of all the knee pads I've pedaled in, these are easily some of the more comfortable ones I've worn and I will be keeping them in the regular rotation. The knee pads are available in sizes XS-XXL and the elbow pads are available in sizes M-XL. They sell for $79.99 and $59.99, respectively. More information is available at oneal.com
