Slammed your knee into a large boulder on your last trail ride? If you had been wearing the Aazis soft knee guard, your knee would have obliterated that rock without slowing you down at all and leaving you no worse for wear.
Right materials, right places. Kali Protectives continues this product promise with the Aazis soft knee guard. All the protection you need and nothing additional.
Prevent unwanted abrasions! We've got the protection you need!
After buying a new Trance and being able to push my limits more I decided it was time to buy some knee protection. My riding style is mostly aggressive cross county/trail riding and occasional enduro. I did a lot of research about different knee guards and finally decided on the Kali's. I wanted a knee pad that would offer good protection and flexible enough for riding up the trail. These pads fit the bill. They are soft shell but have good padding and protections for the knee cap and sides too, which is nice. You do notice them while first pedaling but you soon forget they're there. They stay in place really well, you just need to make sure the straps are properly tightened. The straps could be a little shorter cause, for me, they're a little too long. This can be fixed by stitching them shorter or adding more Velcro to them. I haven't tested their crash protection (knock on wood) but I feel more confident bombing down the trail knowing they're there, it gives me more confidence. These are great pads for the money. Awesome value!
Love this better than my knee/shin 180, this is a best buy for $20!!
I've owned two pairs of these. Very comfy, protect well and do not slip. The problem is the velcro will start to eat itself after a few months... The spiky part will destroy the soft part until it no longer grips at all and comes off as you pedal. My shop just swapped for a new pair the first time. This time they sent the pads in to Kali. I'm waiting...
Solid knee pads for this price. I have skinny legs and they don't move around too much at all. They probably aren't the best for all day rides as they can get kind of itchy, but for quick sessions they will inspire a little more confidence to pedal harder than before. Until I find a truly comfortable knee pad I will stick to buying these. As tempting as it is to keep the velcro taught and pull them on and off they will last much longer if you undo the straps each time and keep them in a cool, dry place.
Light weight and stays put its easy to forget these are on. The lightweight fabric breathes well, but may be subject to tearing bc of it; although I haven't crashed w them yet to find out. More comfortable than my 661 Rage Soft pads i was wearing (and I'm a fan of those as well). Easily a 3 year pad and way worth it.
Excellent pads for the money, saved my knees twice already. Just wish I got the combo knee/shin guards.
I've gone through sixsixones and alpinestars, and these were definitely the most comfortable. They do get a bit warm, but then again what knee brace doesn't? Definitely worth the money.
These pads are light weight and non-cumbersome. I've not whiped out w them yet (knock on wood), but they pedal well and so far, stay put without sagging. In contrast, bc they're "light weight", the fabric is lean so i could see potential tearing at some point. Regardless for the $; i see these lasting for years and thats an amazing value.
Bought XLs, along with their elbow pads. Initially they were tight, but they loosened up after a few rides. Unfortunately, they kept loosening up to the point where they no longer stay in place. I emailed Kali about it, but they never bothered to respond.
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....
