The second most popular/important piece of protective equipment is a good set of knee pads. In the event of a crash, knees pose as a easy target for the ground. They also serve as the first possible impact with your very stiff frame. A set of knee pads will help eliminate those knocks and keep you out on the trail shredding. There are different offerings for varying disciplines. A set of downhill pads are the heaviest of duty, they provide the most protection but restrict the leg that most when it comes to pedalling. Enduro/trail knee sleeves are much lighter, offer a little less protection but will comfortable to wear all day on a big ride. These will still provide help with small knocks/crashes but perhaps not the all out high speed crashes in downhill. It is a balance of protection versus comfort and pedal efficiency.
