- A full pad on a 120cm pocket board weighs 300g.
- They cost quite a bit of money.
- They absorb some water and capture water adding weight during ride
- Takes some time to dry ( most often in my car)
+ It helps prevent heel problems developing.
+ they protect the board
+ good for barefoot riding when travelling to warm and sandy places.
You can cut down on weight by only doing pad segments under straps.
For sure! But I am strapless and find the edges of pads trip me up. Granted I'm an intermediate, could be my skills..
