The EVOs’ d3o padding makes them some of the comfiest pads around, which gives you plenty of freedom to keep mashing the pedals all day. Their coverage is good too. The vented rear means you don’t get hot or clammy, which is great on warm days.

The two straps keep the pads in place well, without restricting movement or causing irritation. The pricetag will certainly put a few people off though, and the d3o padding is pretty thin in places, which doesn’t inspire the confidence that some other knee pads do.
