SixSixOne Riot knee pads

Our review

Don't work too well with shorts, but great under trousers
Skip to view product specifications

Designed as a minimal pad to fit under trousers, the SixSixOne Riot is certainly a lot lower profile than the company’s immensely popular Rage knee pad (formerly known as the Kyle Strait).

The bottom of the kneepad has no strap, just a loop of Neoprene to put your foot through, which is comfortable and is combined with the simple Velcro closure on the upper part of the pad. When worn on their own, we found the pad needed constant adjustment and we never got comfortable, but under jeans where they could easily be held in place they felt great – and didn’t even need to be tightened fully to stay put.
