Simple, comfortable and protective - is Fox's Launch Sport Knee Pads in a nutshell. The simple part comes from the easy fit system, a one-time adjustment that gives you custom coverage. The comfort comes courtesy of the Launch's asymmetrical design that is right and left-leg specific for premium pedal power. Last but certainly not least is the protection. They sport a tough plastic exoskeleton with molded cups for serious impact resistance.
I think like most mountain biking novices, I've had my share of falls and crashes. It doesn't matter what age you are, getting banged up on the knees and shins hurt! I looked into various types of knee/shin protection and settled on this product. The selling points for me were the plastic reinforcements vs. padding. Needless to say it's already paid for itself. The bonus is you'll get accustomed to them so fast, you won't recall they're on. The only con for me is keeping the top strap secured on my upper thighs. I've secured it as best as I'm able without restricting circulation to my thighs. But during rides they eventually slip down about 2-3 inches. Its saving grace is even when it does that, my knees are still protected. These are definitely worth the investment and I would buy them again.
very comfortable protects very well my shins and knees. I like it that a single measure that can use people of different heights Five Stars for this
These are great... buying a 2nd pair since mine flew off my pack while i was riding... for the money these are better then great. easy on easy off good fit for me.
