Elbow pucks

I told my buddies last night that there are full race leathers with elbow pucks out there. They don't believe me and now I can't find them any where. I have definitely seen Aprilia leathers with elbow pucks.

Can't say that I've ever heard of them. If they exist, these guys would probably have them ??

Great shots! I think the leathers these guys run are multilayered at the elbow but not armored. It's not meant to spend a lot of time on the track but it's another stabilizer in a corner - three points is better than two. When you're putting this kind of body to the track you are in the top form of the sport.

alot of the newer suits coming out have external armor in the sholders, elbows, and knees now these are seperate from the knee sliders. I'm not sure if thats what your talking about.

If I come across any, I'll post a link. In the meanwhile, I just had to say that I am impressed by those pics.

Somewhere, I had seen a pic of a racer who had duct taped pucks to his elbows.
