New Bluegrass Knee and Elbow Pads 1

Changing the guard.

Our riding experience is not just about the trails, the bike, the weather, or the company! It's also about feeling confident and free in every move we make. That's why the refined knee and elbow pads offer better comfort, perfect stability, and more protection. The new range of knee pads is based on two levels of protection: LEVEL 2 / TYPE B.  


Level 1 and Level 2 are certification grades based on the protector's energy dissipation performance. 3 impacts are required on each protector in the central and side areas. To get Level 2 certification the average result of those impacts should not exceed 20kN, ensuring a minimum of 40% improvement in energy dissipation compared to a Level 1.


Type A and Type B define the minimum impact-tested area of the protector, effectively indicating how much the pad safely covers the joint. Type B-certified protections provide 39% more coverage on knees.
