The elbows are particularly susceptible to hits and impacts on the hockey rink, especially in tight situations along the boards, or when falling onto the ice. For these reasons, elbow pads are an invaluable part of the equipment and are mandatory for anyone playing organized ice hockey. In addition to protecting the elbows, they also offer some protection for the biceps and forearm. It's also important that they are comfortable to wear, with a fit that aligns with the elbow joint's movements, ensuring good puck control and feel when shooting or dribbling. Nowadays, elbow pads are both lighter and more flexible than before, optimizing arm mobility and maximizing on-ice performance.

How to choose the right size for elbow pads

When selecting elbow pads, it's important to choose a model that fits properly. A general rule is that they should cover the arm all the way from the shoulder pad's bicep section to the top of the glove. To get an idea of the size you need, refer to the size chart on the product page. For Bauer elbow pads, you should measure the distance from the elbow to the wrist, with the elbow joint angled at 90 degrees. With CCM, on the other hand, you base it on your total body height. Then compare these measurements with the size guide to determine the best fit for you.
