I was just wondering what kind of pads you uys wear for what type of riding. I have these bulky protec pads that I've used at the skatepark, but it's hard to fit them under my pants. I've seen other guy's at the skatepark wearing neoprene pads, and they seemed to be fine. I guess my question's are:

1) Are neoprene pads as protective as those with a plastic cap?

2) What kind should I get (company, style, padding amount)?

Also: I need the pads for street and park riding.

well to be honest if you want your brakes to work well, (im sure you do) the softer the compound the better. this is especially important, it you have an anodised rim, chrome rims should work well with most compounds, but its always worth gettig a good soft pad like a kool stop eagle 2, or a kool stop phat pad.
