We didn't mess around with the design of the NEO kneeguards! A full Kevlar impact panel resists punctures, tears, and abrasion, covering multiple layers of foam and rigid knee protection. Crazy comfortable, with a virtually non-existent break-in period.
• Full Kevlar impact panel for maximum resistance to tears and abrasion. • Internal, rigid plastic kneecap on top of multiple layers of impact-absorbing EVA foam. • Inner and outer knee side padding. • Low-profile, "second skin" design resists both downward and rotational forces. • Thrash-tested by the Rockgardn Factory Team.
Rated 5 out of 5 by rubberneck 99% better than the others
got sick of buying 'other brands' similar in design that last 12mnths before falling apart or become to baggy to remain useful so gave these a punt. i have to say that they are far better than the others. no perforating means they get a bit slimey in summer but i use these in winter for trail riding (fall off more in the mud/ice) or for summer DH (full knee/shin in winter,,, i fall off more) . hard shell are the way forward for my aging knees and the side padding seems to be a bit firmer than the other brands and holds up better to falls and scrapes.
well happy with these pads had them 12 months now and they are holding up miles better than the other 'several' pairs of pads from other manufacturers.
PS pads where a bit tight when i first tried them out so i stretched them over a 5L bottle of fabric softener and left them for a couple of weeks to stretch, fit is perfect now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Meta55Rob Top shelf knee protection
A very solid knee guard for a reasonable price. The second skin inner holds the pad in place well and prevents it from slipping down, even during prolonged pedalling. The non-perforated design enhances durability and delays excessive loosening of the fit. As with all body armour, accurate sizing is essential. They do require some breaking in, but comfort is good. The combination of kevlar, foam and a hard plastic shell provides great protection with minimal bulk and weight. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great product, looks great
Guards offer fantastic protection all around the knee and top of the shin. These pads really are the most protective yet lightweight and comfortable pads ever with all potentially vunerable areas covered. Went for size medium and they fit perfectly staying in position all day. Would be better with a little more ventillation but apart from that, they're great.

Stiff and unwieldy with elastic straps so long that they're practically useless. These two factors combined mean that they refuse to stay in position. But hey, they look great, eh?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great!
Come in big sizes- Comfortable All Day long. Great for All mountain riding. I got big legs apparently, as I tried many other brands in XL and they were too small and uncomforatable. After my third attempt I landed on these. CRC gave good support and even had someone in their call center try who also had big legs try these on to give his 2 cents. I havent´thought about kneed pads since these arrived!
