Hammer down rowdy rock gardens, and charge through tree-laced sections of hand-built downhills with confidence against crashes in the IXS Carve EVO Elbow Pads. Dialed for riding, these pads feature X-matter protection foam to take the brunt of impacts without hindering your movement on the bike. X-matter is built from a viscoelastic polymer that absorbs forces upon impact, but moves and flexes while riding to keep you comfortable when you're hammering up punchy climbs. It features open-cell compound construction that is capable of withstanding multiple impacts in the same region, all the while maintaining its shock absorbing properties for big bail outs to come. To keep you feeling fresh, IXS crafts the pads with lightweight and breathable Aeromesh that gives your skin a boost of wicking that keeps you dry on climbs and triple-digit DH days alike. This fabric has a knack for moisture transfer, searching for beads of sweat to quickly pull away to the surface where it can dry in the breeze. When you're done with a particularly warm ride, or rowdy mud fest, the X-matter pads can be pulled out of the sleeves, enabling easy washing to keep you fresh for the miles that follow.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
