Lightweight elbow/forearm and knee protection

Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Lightweight elbow/forearm and knee protection

Iím not posting about how cool and tough I am, just sharing my experiences, which apparently bothers you. Is there some kind of armor that could help you with this other problem of yours?
Obvious troll is obvious.

It seems like you are the one who is out of place in this thread. It was a serious question, asked and answered. By people other than you. Your Captain Obvious, oops, Envious , comments are pretty clear about your intentions to disrupt this thread. 55 posts in just a few weeks, most of them being argumentative also shows a trend towards being a troll.

So again, cool story bro. Move along. You are neither witty or clever. Your pathetic attempt at "EPIC PWNAGE" has failed.

Would a lightweight airy supermoto jacket with removable pads help you?
Might look at Joe Rocket. They have mesh jackets with removable shoulder, elbow and part of fore-arm, and a back pad.

There are padded compression sleeves all over Amazon. There are also padded long sleeve shirts. Goalie jerseys and rugby jerseys mainly. Either would work fine at night with temps dropping.

A simple flannel shirt would have saved you too. But a good quality flannel is a bit too heavy except for the middle of the winter.

Envious is an old account of our local serial troll named Pete. It seems like trolling bike forums is foreplay for his nightly self gratification ritual.

I heard a nice one today; a guy pointed out for wearing knee pads on his gravel bike came back with: "Year but unfortunately my legs aren't tubeless!"

Case closed!
