Elbow Pads for Mountain Biking
G-Form’s MTB elbow protective gear provide exceptional comfort and flexibility so you remain in control of your ride with full range of motion. Unlike other bulky pads, G-Form’s MTB elbow guards are form-fitting, lightweight, and are flexible as you ride, yet harden on impact so you don’t know they’re there until you need them most. All G-Form elbow pads are designed to fit seamlessly under jerseys, jackets, and long sleeves.
MTB Knee Pads & Protection
G-Form mountain bike knee pads are designed for mtb riders of all levels. Our body-mapped designs fit like a second skin so you have complete range of motion. Cover your knee or full knee-shin for complete leg protection. The compression sleeves have grippers at the top and bottom to keep guards in place and not slip as you ride. Our more advanced knee pads feature Velcro straps to ensure security and enhance the overall fit of the sleeve when riding. Plus, SmartFlex pads are fully waterproof and machine washable.
Mountain Bike Shorts With Pads
G-Form padded bike liner shorts protect are designed with the next generation of riders in mind – from beginners to advanced riders and anyone in between. We offer a variety of bike short liners, including some with additional tailbone protection in case of a flip over the handlebars. With moisture wicking UPF 50+ compression fabric, ventilated hip pads with added airflow, and 4+ hour chamois to remain chafe-free, you can keep dry and comfortable on your ride.
Padded Bike Gloves
Protect your hands on mountain bike, trail or motocross rides with G-Form’s SmartFlex padded bike gloves.. Our low-profile, second skin fit gives incredible articulation and sensitivity when gripping the bars and brakes for better control when riding. The glove palms are made of a synthetic suede with perforated ventilation and smartphone-friendly thumb and index fingertips. When the seasons are changing but you keep riding, our cold weather bike gloves are perfect for cooler days.
Chest & Back Protectors
When hitting the trail hard, you can never be too careful. Our upper-body chest and back protectors fit under your clothes with padded compression shirts so you can’t even tell they are there. Perfect for any sport, moisture-wicking, UPF 50+ fabric, and machine washable.
Downhill vs Cross Country (XC) Protective Gear
Whether you are aggressively riding black diamonds downhill, enduro racing, or cruising through a trail or cross country (XC) biking – we have protective gear that is right for your style of riding. More intense, downhill mountain bike riding requires heavy-duty protection, like seen in our E-Line knee and elbow guards – ready to tackle technical terrain and long days in the saddle. For XC biking, or anyone from beginner to advanced all-mountain riding, our Pro-X3 lineup of mtb knee guards and elbow pads provide a lighter-weight option for added comfort and breathability, but still delivering protection you can trust.
