Although designed with dirt jumpers in mind, these slim kneepads are good for general trail riding too, because of their unobtrusive design and minimal weight. The top and bottom straps sit comfortably on your leg while you’re pedalling.
They also hold the pad in place well when you take a tumble, and we like the fact you can remove the soft PU kneecap. However, there is some irritation caused by the exposed kneecap rubbing your knee. We’d like to see both sides padded rather than just the one.
