    Hello everyone,

    I'll be playing my first roller hockey game in an adult recreational league on the 10th. I need some new equipment and the number one thing I need is elbow pads. I currently have some, they are held on by Velcro straps, are very restrictive, annoying, and come undone often. I'm a really skinny guy, but I want something (if they even make them) that just slides on, no Velcro straps, if you know what I mean.

    So, first, is their any brand of elbow pads that "slide" on without having to use Velcro or something like that? And what's the most comfortable and non cumbersome elbow pads you've had?


    Thanks in advance everyone, it means a lot.

    i don't know of any pads that slip on.

    new CCM vectors use a lace-pull kind of thing.

    i have RBK 3k's and i love them. used to have some Bauer Vapor 10s that were too tight and too loose at the same time. usual bauer rubbish.

    the RBK's lower strap is not elastic, so it's not prone to loosening and sliding off. i keep the lower strap tight and the upper straps loose, perfect for me. i get my full range of motion.

    I use the Easton Synergy elbow pads and they slide right on. Worth every penny.

    Have you tried looking at some lacrosse arm pads?

    Brine makes some that slide on.
