Have you ever gone for a downhill ride and kept your arms straight? Neither have ION. That is why ION designed the E_Pact with a pre-shaped, almost 90° angle to reduce fatigue and provide a wrinkle-free fit. ION knows about the pros and cons of visco elastic foams. But freedom of movement is the most important function an elbow guard needs to offer. So ION went back and integrated the simple but unmatched hard cap in combination with high quality memory foam padding for optimal protection and comfort. Sanitized® feature for long lasting freshness.Key FeaturesIonic_Fit: The human body is neither cylindrical nor symmetrical. Thus, you have to forget about flat 2D patterns. We use our expertise in tailoring body-fitting wetsuits to shape anatomic fitting pads for a natural riding position.HD_Memory_Foam: Closed cell foam with extremely high shock absorbing characteristics, including multi impacts.Power_Aramid: Power_Aramid is a synthetic fibre originally developed by DuPont.
