FIRST LOOK: Leatt 3DF Airflex Pro Knee Guard

Vital was lucky enough to get a pair of the new Leatt 3DF Airflex Pro knee guards to examine. Right out of the box, the pads feel extremely light and flexible. The unique look of the perforated protection zone is eye-catching.

The Pro is an addition to the Leatt 3DF kneepad line which features the standard 3DF Airflex and the 3DF Hybrid. The Pro is the slimmest of the bunch and its 6mm pad is CE Certified with the Knee EN1621-2 Level 1 impact designation. The non-slip silicone cuffs keep the pads in place and side protection is ample, considering the light weight.

Did we mention they're flexible?

The MoistureCool and AirMesh fabrics combined with the design of the outer guard should keep you cool on trail rides. The extreme cold will affect the flexibility of the pads, but considering the ventilation, you probably

Stay cool. We stuck our flash in the pads to show how well the Airflex Pro pads will ventilate. There's breathable, soft fabric between your skin and the outer guard, too.

MSRP is $79 for the pads and there's a wide variety of sizes (S through XXL) to make sure you get a dialed fit. Visit leatt.com for more info.

Update, 11-23-2015

I took these on a trail ride today and since I haven't hit the deck in them, I'm not ready to claim a review, but they were extremely light, cool and barely noticeable on the climb. They stayed in place, despite the hot, sweaty climb. I normally don't wear pads on this particular ride because it's a grind and usually hot with only a short tech section. I'd use the 3DF Airflex Pros on this ride regularly now. -gordo
