G-Form Pro-X knee pads

Our review

Super-comfy knee pads that provide a really decent level of protection for trail riding
Pros: Lightweight and super-comfy pads for whole days on the trail; padding articulates well and offers decent coverage
Cons: If the lower opening curved up and over the top of your calf muscle, comfort would be enhanced further

G-Form uses its RPT padding, which hardens upon impact, on the Pro-Xs in a bid to keep your knees safe without making the pads feel bulky or uncomfortable.

The smooth, stretchy sleeve hugs your leg almost perfectly and keeps the pad exactly where it needs to be. I found that shifting the lower opening up a little, so it sat just above the calf muscle, made things much comfier, as it’s quite tight.

I had no issues with the sleeve sliding down on the trail, thanks to the silicone strip inside the upper opening. Most importantly though, it pulls the thick padding taut across your knee – where it stays.

Get pedalling and you’ll be surprised by just how comfy the Pro-Xs are. They feel more like knee warmers than pads, and while they do get warm, they’re not as sweaty as the likes of Fox’s older Launch Enduro knee pads.

Thanks to the well-positioned gaps in the padding, they articulate incredibly well too, bending as your knee does without lifting or chafing in the process.

Coverage is on par with other trail-style pads (check out G-Form’s Elite pads if you’re looking for something burlier) and it’s nice to see the addition of some extra side protection.

It’s a real plus that there are five sizes to choose from too, especially considering the reasonable price tag.
