Description

Body armor is no good if it sucks to wear.

Just knowing that the triple-layer Alpinestars Morzine Knee Guard is wrapped around your leg will make you faster. The dual-density foam liner provides progressive protection and a soft contact surface for comfort. The pre-curved design and spandex side panels feel natural and allow for a full range of motion, and the highly breathable 3D mesh construction keeps the air flowing so you don't burn up during the ride.

Decent light downhill knees

I bought these for Whistler trips as something light yet not as light as my veggies. They work well when knees are bent and heading down the hill, but walking around isn't the most comfortable, but no terrible. You can put them on without taking off shoes which is nice. I have large legs and needed to get the straps done up custom by my local dry cleaner, but they seem to fit comparable to others. For more pedaling intensive rides, I wouldn't wear these.

Not what I needed

I bought these to try and have something a little less bulky than the full-on Raceface armor I have been using. Here in S AZ. the rocks and cactus leave a lot of cuts, scrapes and piercings, but now the hotter weather is here the Raceface stuff is a little too cumbersome. I have used these a couple of times, and they just seem to be not very effective, and a little uncomfortable with the straps rubbing and chafing when sweating. I took one endo wearing them, and landed on my right knee, but it was slow and altho I did not get any injury apart from some scratches, I am not sure a speedier dismount would prove them as effective. I think they would slip fairly easily. I am not sure I want to find out!

Responded on

Update: These are useless, not fit for purpose even. I have worn them a couple more times and not only are they fraying at the edges, they are really uncomfortable, straps digging into flesh, and will pull off easily in a fall. I know this because I have caught them by mistake a number of times on protrusions either on or off the bike, and they pull to one side or down very, very easily. I definitely do not want to 'load test' these for real. I value my flesh.
