Not everyone is pushing the limits of whitewater SUP, but even on class 1 and 2 you're going to fall off, and rocks are just as hard on easy rivers as difficult ones. Our knee/shin and elbow/forearm protection offers you the ideal protection without overkill. Designed to stay in place in a river environment, and comfortabler to wear, it's like you're not wearing anything. Until of course you hit that rock - then you'll be glad you're wearing them.
Class 5 kayaking creek boaters are also loving these for elbow protection
