The most advanced Dainese knee pad of all time was developed with the Canyon Enduro team, drawing on Dainese's long history of excellence in protective gear. Featuring hybrid construction, the Enduro Knee Guards 2 mix flexible and breathable Dainese Pro-Armor padding with tough ABS shells to maximize coverage and comfort.
The engineered construction covers specific areas of the knee bones like the kneecap and the shinbone, while the extended Pro-Armor construction provides great coverage to cartilage surrounding the knee. Extra protection is offered by the Crash Absorb pads on the inner section to lessen bumps with the frame and other possible injuries. The Enduro Knee Guard 2 conforms to the shape of the knee, providing riders with pedaling freedom and maximum comfort even after miles of aggressive riding.
The hybrid construction extends all over the knee, replicating body biomechanics while maintaining mobility and coverage during stretching, compression, twisting, and flexion. The front ABS plates provide the rider with high impact resistance and ensure sliding during falls while the Pro-Armor and the Crash Absorb side padding bolsters ensure great coverage on delicate side parts of the knee.
The pre-curved hybrid construction of the Enduro Knee Guards allows the rider to have unrestricted motion during climbing and descending, with enough flex to aid re-mounting without the pad shifting. Improving on the comfort of the original, the Enduro Knee Guard 2 adds a larger zone of flexible Pro-Armor below the kneecap for more independent motion of the upper and lower parts of the guard. The upper elastic bands were completely redesigned to perfectly follow the leg shape, while the elastic calf gripper allows the pad to stay firm during the ride.
Lightness and Breathability
The fractal-inspired structure of Pro-Armor balances density of padding with ventilation, which not only results in a high level of protection but also offers an unmatched degree of breathability and ventilation compared to other certified protectors on the market. The Airnet "sock" features jersey-style mesh on the back of the knee, aiding comfort even during hard efforts.
Enduro Knee Guards 2 will be available from Dainese dealers in May.
