Thanks, that's just the sort of comparison I was looking for. My 7iDP rub seems to happen when I don't have the sock pulled up as high as possible so that they stay tight. If it slips, then I get rub around the edges of the insert. The straps on the Trigger might help with that, and their sock doesn't extend as far up and down, so they may actually feel cooler to me.

Your summers probably feel worse, due to humidity.

I use the Sam Hills as my light riding pads and the triggers as my park/aggressive riding pads. The coverage is simillar but padding is notably more substantial on the triggers. In terms of comfort, the trigger stays put thanks to latex bands so you may experience the same issue as...more

Thanks for the review, I was eyeing these as my next pair. How do they compare against the 7iDP Sam Hills, in terms of heat, coverage (side and upper shin), and general comfort?

I'm on my second pair of Sam Hills, and most of the time they fit great, but occasionally I have a day where they rub raw spots on the sides/top/bottom of my knee. The first pair had the "sock" tear in a crash, but 7iDP gave me a nice crash replacement discount. They're pretty toasty in California summer too.

Thanks, that's helpful. I'll pull my Airflexes on later and measure down ~2" and see where that falls. I was referring to the top of the knobby part of the shin bone, which is 1" below my kneecap when my knee is bent 90 degrees. Looking at again, if I can get some coverage 5-6" from the bottom of the knee cap, I'll be much better off than I am now.

I don't want to end up with a full knee/shin pad like the POC VPD Long or the Alpinestars Paragon because I already have that amount of coverage in Race Face Flanks, which are heavy and hot.

What's the measurement from the top of your shinbone to the bottom of the Sam Hill padding? I'm looking for a new pedal-friendly knee pad that covers my upper shin to stop my flat pedals from butchering me. Looks like I need about 5-6" of coverage based on my scars, and these may fit the bill. Currently using Airflex Pros, and it seems like every single time I have a pedal strike it hits exactly under the armor.
