A bold combination of lightweight fabrics and impact protection, the Flank Leg is the evolution in Race Face protection. Tapping the industry shift towards lower profile, innovative protection, driven by DH racers and free riders.
The construction of the knees ensures they stay put throughout the entire range of pedalling motion but lock on impact to protect critical areas. Behind the heat debossed Durable Nylon cover lies d3o™ Intelligent Shock Absorption™ technology. A PU based cellular polymer - flexible in its relaxed state, engaged on impact. Award-winning Race Face armour design, unsurpassed freedom of movement and lightweight construction; the evolution of protection.
• Pedal Bite Protection: Based on the Race Face Ambush Knee construction with added shin extension to protect against ‘pedal bite’. • d3o™ Technology: Featuring patented d3o shock absorbing technology, a PU based non-woven cellular polymer that is flexible in its relaxed state but locks on impact to absorb energy and protect vulnerable areas. • 600D Nylon Fabric: Strategic fabric placement offers superior abrasion resistance along the front panel. PU gel treatment increases water repellent properties. Nylon panel features heat-debossed print for subtle styling. • 3mm Perforated Neoprene: Premium lightweight neoprene throughout hugs the leg for the ultimate in stay-put technology and rider freedom. • Increased hole-density enhances flow-through venting and moisture control with a large opening at back for additional breathability. • Knee Stabilization Pad: Hidden stabilization pad centers the patella and minimizes slip to ensure optimal support through the knee’s full range of pedalling motion. • Padded Side Walls: Triple density foam padding at sides offers increased coverage and protection. • Inner Walls: Terry fabric is laminated to the inner soft shell for increased next-to-skin comfort and wicking performance. • Fit Specific Strapping System: Fine weave strap offers maximum strength when stressed. • Custom Rubber ‘Grab Tabs’: Designed to complement the styling of the Ambush Glove and offer easy adjustment while wearing gloves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Run a little small
I have used them for a few times. Luckily did not have to test the crash protection, but I must say that they run a little small. I checked the measurements in the size chart and went for the small ones, thinking they know what they're talking about. They are too tight and they itch a little. For someone who is 5'9" of average build, even if your legs measure almost exactly to the small size specs, get the mediums

I have owned and used Rockgardn and 661 Pads which have been good, however the Flank is fantastic and in my opinion beats the 661 and other brands hands down.
These are extremely comfortable and you really do forget you have them on, i have taken a few hits and the D3O technology really works, very soft and almost like a gel until an impact when the stiffen up.
The other good thing with these pads is they are pretty discreet and don't stand out like it's competitors.
Overall 5 out of 5 and would buy again without hesitation. just need the elbow ones now.
