Your little ripper's knobby elbows are a constant source of concern during their regular crashes out on the trails, but your trail-devouring miniature doesn't much like being restricted by too much padding while they seek out brown pow. Plus, scars are cool. You could prove them wrong by sending them out sans-padding, or you could buy them Leatt's 3DF 5. 0 Junior Elbow Guard and spare yourself from dealing with the tears, showing them that trail protection doesn't have to be bulky. The softshell elbow guards are slimmer than ever this year, but safety-minded Leatt made sure they conformed to safety certifications and didn't skimp on the cushy padding where it counts. A rugged Aramid outer layer stands up to brushes with unfriendly trail furniture, while moisture-wicking fabrics promise to keep Junior from overheating mid-ride.
