After bashing my knees on the local rocks, I decided it was time for a set of guards. This is my first purchase from Kali, and so far I'm happy with them. They go on good, hold well with the straps, and have taken a decent smack with no problems.
Ok, my friends call me crash, I wreck a lot. I don't ride a lot of really hairy trails, I just seem to crash a lot. yard sale-o-rama. I got tired of picking dirt and rocks out of my knees, so I bought a pair of these. They are lightweight, comfortable, easy on and off, and work well. I have tested them several times since buying them...unintentionally of course. Best 30 bucks I spent on mt biking this year.
Got these for use on the local rocky trail and for trips to rowdier destinations. Took a few miles of riding to figure out the best adjustmnent for them to stay put without being over tight, but no problems with movement after that. Be sure you notice that there is a specific right and left guard, it's hidden on the tag inside. Quality is alright overall, with some threads inside dangling here and there, but that's just cosmetic nitpicking. Inside and outside padding is enough to prevent bruises from knocking top tubes and other minor stuff. With the summer humidity setting in I've worn these when its toasty without complaint, though I haven't tested them beyond heat indexes over 100 or so yet. I only wear these on technical or high speed trails, and forget I'm wearing them during those outings and that's all I ask for comfort. I did have a wreck on a rock slab last week which was their first real test, and they performed well. Wheels slid out from under me and I went down on one side, with my knee landing first. The hard cap took the blow and my knee bounced right off (nevermnd I did not have on elbow guards and my arm is scraped up). Couldn't be happier with them. I would probably look for more protection for more gravity-oriented riders, but I just wanted some light and inexpensive pads for extra rock protection and these fit the bill.
Landed on these twice. Both times they did not slip, but got an abrasion burn on my knee from contact with the material. One hit swelled my knee. They are light and comfy though.
These are how they look. Not to bulky, snug fit that don't slip (so far), and good coverage. I previously wore Six Six One Kyle Straight knee pads, these are pretty similar with a tad softer knee plate. For the price (< $30), these are a deal.
Fit is tight but needs to be...a bit hot and constrictive... Design, quality and materials are top notch. thankfully I am not sure how they hold up in a wreck....I only wreck when I don't wear them....
