After one full year of riding with these pads, I can honestly say that they will hold up great against impact. They look great (a lot better than in the picture showed), it fits like a sock and will definitely give you a lot more confidence while your riding some of the gnarliest trails. However they are a big downside when it comes to these knee pads; and that is when you manage to fall off your bike and hit the top of your knee on something, the knee pad has indecencies to slip of your knee and exposing parts of your knee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Comfiest I've ever worn
Superb product, the technology of the protection goes without saying. My problem has been finding a knee pad that stays in place when not just climbing and descending but when you crash ;-) And all without cutting off the blood circulation! This does it all, the catch is.....you gotta buy the right size!! If you order a product online and size is wrong you can send back! If you are unsure how to fit a knee pad go to a shop and rely on their expertise would be my advice... These are large pads, I always wore XL in other brands and even then couldn't get some to fit including the cheaper POC guards or onealls kyle straits etc so probably b thinking about a size smaller then usual. LOve them you don't know you are wearing them :-)

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Ooh what i can say about poc knee pads:VERY expensive,Not enough ventilated.I follow size chart and by all odds large size fit me(calf 37,Circumference 10cm above knee cap is 47).Unfortunately not.When i start pedaling,they slipping down,if overtight straps will hurt.I contact POC team and get negative answer.AS they wrote me 'we cannot accept warranty due to sizing,but we will give you 20% off next purchase' For that money i id like to get higher level of service and understanding of the problem.So choose now,do you need product like this or can find cheaper version with good customer service.I hope that helps!Thanks
