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.
