The price is certainly appealing and we like that the Glider LTs look different to most other pads on the market. The single lower strap holds them in place well, gripping at just about the top of your calf muscle.
The lightweight construction and soft inners mean they're comfortable even when you’re out all day. A tighter, elasticated upper would help hold the pad in place more tightly when your knee is fully ﬂexed though, and we’d like the biofoam padding to be a little thicker to deal with larger falls.
