Thanks again for your response Revengel! Much more helpful and useful info this time around so I really appreciate it!

I’m definitely focusing on knee/shin guards just because the amount of time I have to work on this project, but also want to develop an elbow guard to go with the knee/shin guard. It also seems like more riders have complaints with the knee/shin protection that is available and less issues with the elbows.

It seems like you wear some pretty serious protection on your legs. I’m curious as to how long of rides you go on? Do you find yourself adjusting all your pads throughout the ride and tightening the straps as they become loose?

I really want to develop something that you can wear on long rides without them scratching the legs and becoming uncomfortable after a short amount of pedaling.
