I am looking at getting knee, elbow and maybe shin pads.

What specific brand and models are good and not too pricey?
Besides a skate park requiring them, which of the three are most critical for BMX (elbow/knee/shin)?

Thanks

Knee / shin for me. if i was to get a 3rd, id say those little side ankle pads as my shin pads are just shin.

Brand wise for BMX, Fuse is the best IMO. You have a ton of MTB options too.

Anyone know anything on the Fuse Omega Knee Pads or Fuse Echo 75 Knee/Shin Pads?

Ive seen the fuse 75s they’re well made but i would suggest the 125s if you hold off i am ordering some to test out and should have them some time next week if all goes well

I feel like everyone will have a different answer for this... but imo nothing sucks more than a shinner (except a broken bone, in which case pads wont save your ass anyway). Shadow Conspiracy makes a really good line of pads, they are a little pricey but super flexible, light and breathable.

I love my FUSE pads. I have the DELTA knee and SHIN/WHIP/ankle pads. Started with the Shadows but the actual protection (especially the knee) was pretty low and they started to come apart within a month. My FUSE are still going after a year and a half.

You can't go wrong with the Fuse pads. They're expensive but the quality is worth the cost.

Another upvote for fuse pads here. I use the Whip shin/ankle combo pads. Super comfy, great protection. My ankle used to get really banged up, no problem since I got the pads.

Thanks for all the input. What about sizing are Fuse pads true to the size the recommend on their sizing chart?

I am 6'1" 195lbs and would assume i would need L or XL pads?

You should definitely use the size chart and do the measurements. Blindly I would have assumed L or XL and my measurements called for xxl and they fit awesome..

This. Use the sizing guide on the website and measure with a tape. I would have gotten a size too big if I went with my assumption, but I followed the guide and they fit perfectly.

So I have smashed my shin with my peddles a few time but have yet to bang up my ankles. Do ankles usually get caught when trying to grind?

i really like my Moose racing 2018 XCR Knee Guards. They're more of a motorcross pad but work great.

My problem was from spinning. Don’t ask me how, but I would smack my ankle bone on the crank arm every time I 180 or (attempt) 360’s. I don’t think grinding is a problem.
