Rated 5 out of 5 by Peter17 worth the extra money
These pads are great. I rode with them on for a good few hours in the mud and snow, they were comfortable all day on both the uphill and downhill. They didnt feel restrictive and they didnt slip or need re-adjusting. After 10 minutes i forgot i was wearing them. The D30 padding is amazing its flexible and moves with your joints but its absolutely rock solid on impact. The knee coverage and length is good also. They are not cheap compared to others but they are well worth the investment.
I ordered M as suggested according to the size guide...but had to return for a L...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucky13 A great set of durable, and comfortable knee pads
I have the previous years model, they were very comfortable, and they have saved my knees several times. I have not had any issues with them riding down as the previous reviewer has had issues with, of course like he said, "he has not found any knee pads that suit him," perhaps this is a individual issue for him. I plan to buy this years model for my wife soon. They are comfortable, and have good protection over the knee, and on the top of the shin, the 3D0 foam technology is awesome. I like these shin guards so much, I am leery to buy a different brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by hendy050 poor shin pads
Once again I have found myself owning a pair of knee pads which do not protect your knees. If you bash the knee pads straight on, for example jumping onto your knees, they do the job. If you find yourself falling off while moving the pads ALWAYS ride down your shin and your knee still gets scraped. Something that happened to me for the third time since iv owned the pads. No matter how tight you do the straps this still happens. One plus though is that they are comfortable and they have a nice quality to them. This does not justify the price however. I am yet to find a set of knee shins that suit me.
