The Zero LW taps the industry trend towards lower profile, light-weight protection driven by DH racers and free riders.
• Lightweight Performance: Reduced hard shell construction drastically reduces overall weight without compromising the strength and integrity of the protection. • High Density Hard shell: Constructed of 85% Polypropylene (PP) / 15% Thermo Plastic Rubber (TPR), our custom moulded hard shell features a precision engineered matrix with reinforced dike system designed to absorb maximum impact and vibration across the shell. • Knee / Shin Protection: Two-piece construction offers superior articulation and added protection in the event of unwanted ejection. • Neoprene Back: Perforated neoprene back ensures the Zero stays put on climbs, shuttles and descents. • 13 mm Perforated EVA Foam: Premium lightweight, closed cell foam enhances flow-through venting and moisture control and will not compress (i.e. ‘thin out’) over time. • Tight Weave Mesh: Increased hole-density offers maximum breathability while finer weave increases strength, durability and reduces overall weight. • 600D Nylon fabric: Strategic fabric placement offers superior abrasion resistance in key areas. PU gel treatment increases water repellent properties. • Fit Specific Strapping System: Finer weave strap secured to locking D ring offers maximum strength when stressed. Slight modifications to the angle and placement of the straps offer better fit and function. • Inner straps feature soft brushed weave for next-to-skin comfort. • Woven ‘grab tabs’: Offer easy adjust with gloves. • Contrast colour rubber inject branding.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Phlop0 Great protection and put up with abuse
These offer great protection and stay put without being too tight and uncomfortable. I have had them on for hours at a time and are the only pads I've had that offer that level of comfort.
They also seem to put up with plenty of abuse.
The price is pretty good for these as well. I exchanged the medium for the large. I had used the size chart to choose the medium but once they arrived they were a little tight and would have been too uncomfortable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Wullie67 Poor qc
At first they look great out of the bag however the stitching is of a very poor quality. I only tried them on and the stitching is already starting to come away from the harder outer shell. The straps are way to short,(confirmed with other reviews on other sites) as you pull the strap through the loop and back on itself, on to the velcro it would appear that the fury side of the velcro is in the wrong place. The hook side of the velcro doesn't quite reach the furriness so starts gripping onto the strap.
Very disappointed with these I don't think much of Race Faces quality control. these could be such a great set if they only had longer straps and a little more attention to detail on the stitching.
As a result they are being returned without even having a ride with them.
I will be looking to buy another brand.
