Let's face it, your elbows and forearms can take some abuse while playing paintball. That is why we continuously strive to develop the best possible form of elbow protection. Our elbow pads have been beaten, scraped, dived on and gouged by professional paintball athletes worldwide. These elbow pads can survive the toughest abuse and look cool doing it. The vented inner arm material keeps the pad tight against your skin to protect from turf burn, yet it's fully ventilated to keep you cool. Venting on the forearm allows total air circulation and reduces sweating. The center elbow section is flexible and forms to your movement. The flexible ribbed compression area has been extended into the center forearm surface for added protection against forearm impacts. New for 05 and a first for the paintball industry, a gel forearm insert has been installed into the forearm pad for the ultimate in comfort. The C5 Elbow Pads simply offer the most comfortable protection available in the sport of paintball.
The Dye C5 Elbow Pads are older, so while they may be available used and in a few cases new, they are not commonly available anymore.
The thing that most people get with elbow pads are the cushion when crashing into a bunker or the ground, and getting hit by paint. The best thing about these pads are the number of bounces you get. Man... sometimes you end up creeping out of a bunker a little further than you should have to get someone and get hit in the forearm or elbow in the process. With these pads sometimes you get bounces. Helpful in tounaments when people are freaking out and the ref comes over and says, "he's clean." I love it.
Buy them... they are only a few bucks more than the C4's. Others on the field will respect you if you have these.
