Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous look good, if only the performance would match
bought these knee pads about six months ago, pulled them on and they at first felt great, a confidence boost for just having something on your knees.
since it has been wet, even with the straps done up uncomfortable tight it is impossible to stop them from moving, i'm constantly having to stop and pull them up, and i currently have huge scraped up both knees, from crashing and them moving, even small slides cause the pads to move, i wouldn't recommend them, as they are also starting to look tatty as the cloth on the front has started to fray/rip
for 45 pounds, these are seriously bad value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Comfortable and do what they should
I bought these Knee Guards last week, before a long weekend of riding (in the Peaks and then GT and Inners - it was awesome!) I did the measurements, and guessed that Large would be ok, turns out I was right.
They're a little tight, but it's reassuring that they're not going to move anywhere. They have a good hard shell that covers the knee, and the rest grips tightly, but not painfully. They've got a clever release velcro, so you don't have to pull them up over your shoe or anything, you can take them on and off as you please, then tighten them with other straps.
I fell off a few times, and the right knee guard has been scuffed and bruised, but my knee is fine! So, they're comfortable and do what they're supposed to, what more can I say?
These won't stop you from jarring your wrist though. Or bruising your arm so that it looks like you're an alien popeye. These knee guards will not stop that from happening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous BRILLIANT!!!!!
These knee pads are epic !!! I have ridden a couple of trail centres with them and had a big off at one, they saved my knees from total annihilation (The knee pads didn't even break, just a minor cosmetic tear in the fabric!). I definitely recommend the knee pads they are mega comfy and you hardly notice they are on your legs, they fit like a glove and everything about them is well designed.

I,ve got these pads as my wepon my choice for when im on my AM bike , using spd,s around trail centres etc. they are quite comfortable and padding/portection is great ( i know cos they've saved my knees a few times now ) my local trail centres route is about 13miles ( about 4miles descending/ 6miles climbing/3 miles flat land ) i wear my pads the whole way round so you can tell they dont feel bad to wear, AS with any set of pads you dont forget they are there dont there not overly restrictive, VERY GOOD FOR THE MONEY !!!!!
