Mace AMX Arm Guards

Review: Mace AMX Arm Guards

(1/25/2010)

When I first tried the Mace AMX Arm guards on, I'll admit I was not a fan.The design of these elbow pads are a throwback to the early days of the freeride revolution, when having a 4 inch travel fork identified you as a downhill rider unafraid to push the limits of what was ridable. Similar in design and construction to the classic Roach elbow and shin guards, they are offer light protection against any impacts you may encounter.

The AMX guards are aimed at all mountain riders into the classic fit and designs. Constructed using hard plastic wrapped in kevlar, they use elastic webbing to hold them in place. Unlike many of the current crop of molded plastic cups, the plates in the guards aren't molded, and instead bend around your elbow, aided by the cross over hook and loop straps. We weren't crazy about the form of the guards as the velcro caught on our sleeves, and the non-stream lined design didn't work well with 3/4 length jerseys.

Our initial thought on the guards were that they weren't very comfortable.This sentiment was echoed by everyone that tried them on and wore them on a ride. Personally, when I'm riding terrain that dictates the use of elbow protection, I generally just step it up to a full protective jacket.

However, we did find a scenario where they made sense. Once the weather got cold, fitting these guards over a long sleeve jersey or jacket offered us with an additional layer of warmth, and when we were banging through the trees on slightly icy soil, we were glad we had them on. Wearing a layer underneath them eliminated our comfort issue, and the flat shape of the guards meant they fit in our packs when not in use. They don't have a lot of bulk and are fairly lightweight. We end...

Mace Foundation Glove

Product review: Mace Foundation Glove

(8/11/2009)

Mace created the Foundation Glove more for the dirt jump park crowd, but we found it great for every application we used it for. As a light weight glove, it was comfortable whether we were riding our favorite all mountain trail, racing downhill at Sea Otter, or boosting the hits on Dirt Merchant in Whistler.

Used as a DH glove, it lacks adequate knuckle protection for that application, (assuming you ride somewhere with a lot of tight corridors & trees) but then again that isn't the intended use for this product. It does live up to what we expected- whether we were shoveling dirt on the local jumps, lopping branches while doing trail work, or riding, it protected our hands in comfort and style. In fact, the only drawback is the white and gray color gets dirty quickly. It hasn't been a deal breaker by any means, as the gloves have held up well after numerous machine washings. The graphics of the fashion print go really well with my personal bike, which is always a nice bonus.

Glove fit is always a personal thing, as some of us have longer or wider fingers, but the Foundation Glove fit me well, and has become my go-to glove of choice. The Velcro closure strap is in exactly the right place, on the top part of the palm, and never came undone. My favorite feature t...
