Our review

If you’re after good all-day elbow pads, then these are worth looking at, so long as you’re prepared to get sticky

The Sinner pads from O’Neal have a soft, virtually friction-free inner which means they’re really comfy to wear when you’ve got them on properly. That said, the internal flaps that hold the padding in place take a bit of fiddling with to stop the Velcro fastenings agitating your skin.

The Sinners are light enough for all-day uplift use or long days playing in the woods, and are strong enough to take the biggest of knocks. There’s not much ventilation through the thick material, which does absorb sweat, so the insides of the pads tend to get quite clammy if you’re working hard.

The single Velcro strap does a decent job of preventing them from slipping down your arm or twisting when riding and doesn’t detract from the comfort – you actually forget you’re wearing them.
