    “Good all round pads.”

    The Good:

    Extremely protective, fairly comfortable, with good movement.

    The Bad:

    Get warm after you have been riding for a considerable length of time or in hot conditions.

    Overall Review:

    Some of the best pads I have used, great all round, but maybe too much for some people and some riding.

    Miscellaneous A multipurpose knee protector; light and cool enough for all day riding, but still offering state of the art shock absorption for hard core riding. The goal was to solve the constant tradeoff between freedom of movement and high protective properties. Focus has been to optimize both fit and protection at the same time. The Visco-Elastic Polymer Dough (VPD) material is soft and adapts to the shape of the body, but when exposed to impact, the material stiffens and has extreme shock absorption properties.
