best knee pads on the market

These are the best knee pads on the market, bar none. When you fall hard and slide, they don't move. Not even a little. I've fallen from 8' to my knee, not so much as even a scratch, the pads take the hit. They extend above and below your patella and wrap around the sides of your knee for full protection. They do get a little hot and I've snagged the backs of them on my pedals a few times which is tearing them up. Otherwise, the are perfect.
