About SAS-TEC Foam:
Viscoelastic foam with memory effect: After an impact or any kind of deformation the foam (protector) returns to its original shape within shortly.
Multi impact compliant: Unlike many other dampening materials (such as styrofoam (EPS), silicone or foam of inferior quality) our PU-foam is multi-impact compliant. Thus impacts or high pressure do not destroy the protector even when the same area is affected repeatedly. The protector keeps its full functional capability.
Excellent residual forces: The CE-approved protectors of SAS-TEC remain up to 50 per cent below the legal values of the norm EN 1621.
Lightweight: high absorbability despite low density. Hard shell protectors or materials containing silicone are considerably more heavy which reduces the wearing comfort. The density of our SAS-TEC foam is about 280 g/l, hard shells in contrast have an average density of 1050 g/l.
Adaptive absorption: The air which is embedded in the foam's cells provoke a progressive absorption. The protector remains soft in case of slowly increasing forces, however when it comes to a fast heavy impact the resistance of the foam grows with increasing speed.
In impulse responding behavior: Contrary to hard shell protectors, styrofoam damper or many other dampening materials, SAS-TEC foam reacts promptly and without any time delay even to minor impacts. The energy absorption goes almost linear, which keeps the impact forces to the human body at a low level.
Environmental compatibility: The raw materials for our foam production are partly made of renewable materials. It is therefore possible to dispose of the protectors with the regular household garbage.
Long product life: Some manufacturers of body protection only indicate a product life of two to three years for their articles, whereas SAS-TEC foam comes with a life expectancy of ten years.
Temperature stability: Due to a special mixture SAS-TEC foam resists temperatures of approx. 100°C. Conventional PU-foam is only able to stand temperatures of approx. 60°C without taking damage.
Comfort: The high flexibility of our foam ensures outstanding comfort.
Washable (hand wash): The cell structure of our SAS-TEC foam keeps water from entering the material — the water absorption is below one per cent. Therefore hand wash can be recommended without hesitation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kiccofire Comode e protettive.
È un buon prodotto, attenzione però che le taglie sono mediamente più piccole della concorrenza. Per esempio la taglia S che io prendo con Endura e mi calza a pennello, in questo caso è troppo piccola!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Finnished Pretty happy with these
Overall I'm really impressed. They are light, comfortable and don't restrict your knee when pedaling. Quality seems good. Protection seems excellent too although I'm yet to test it.
A couple of negatives:
they are not cheap (but I'd say they are worth it)
I find them quite sweaty (although I've not got anything to compare them with)
the worst thing is, despite having ridden for years with no protection, now I've started to use it, any part of me that is not protected feels vulnerable. So now I'm thinking I need shin pads too!
Despite the minor negatives, I'm really happy with them. I'd say they are great knee pads for trail and all mountain riding.
