We know that the challenge to making a great pair of knee guards is to build them in such a way that they are comfortable to pedal in. After all, they can’t protect you if they’re around your ankles. We used lightweight 4-way stretch Cordura fabric to create a knee guard that fits well and doesn’t restrict the pedal stroke, and kept the back open to prevent material from bunching up behind the knee — a primary source of discomfort. D3O viscoelastic material offers excellent protection with minimal weight while maintaining flexibility. Perfect for trail riders who want a bit more protection, but don’t want to slow down. - Light weight pads for Trail riding - D3O viscoelastic sheet material backed with EVA foam provides CE level 1 protection with minimal bulk - Cordura 4-way stretch woven fabric provides durability in high-impact areas - Mesh fabric on main sleeve provides breathability - Longer knee-warmer-inspired design with wide elastic grippers and silicone interior print keeps pads in place - Offers a more forgiving fit than currently available pad designs
Taking a few spills is part of learning how to be a better bike rider. Our youth body armor is designed to stay in place comfortably the whole ride, so it' there when you need it. They are constructed using the same impact-absorbing D30 material we use in our adult line of knee and elbow pads. We downsized our body armor for juniors and made it in three sizes to stay comfortably in place, because the best pads are the ones that actually get worn. A layer of tough Cordura ® nylon helps these pads stand up to rough and tumble riding.
