Leatt 3DF Hybrid knee pads

Our review

Whether you ride downhill or enduro, the 3DF Hybrids offer a great balance between security and comfort
Skip to view product specifications

The latest knee pads from safety supremo Leatt feature a ‘hybrid’ construction that combines both hard and soft protection. Malleable 3DF padding takes care of the central knee cup and side impact sections, while there’s a hardshell lower pad to offer some extra protection for your lower knee and upper shin.


The elasticated straps use a Velcro fastening and run through a buckle too so you can really get the balance right between comfort and security. The mesh rear and large cutaway mean that while the knee pads are reassuringly bulky up front, they’re relatively cool and extremely comfortable to wear on longer rides.


There’s minimal mushrooming when you’re putting the power down, which is always a bonus, and they’re also available in blue or white in case you’re not into fluoro.
