Item # GFM000B

Just right.

Big, bulky knee pads make riding tougher than it needs to be, and on most rides, you just want a little extra protection, not a hockey goalie setup. The G-Form Pro-X Knee Pads are perfect for all-mountain rides –the RPT Impact Protection hardens on impact, and protects your skin and bones from injuries.

Works as Intended

  • Fit: True to size

This Pads are fantastic! I've taken a couple of solid tumbles in them in the month that I've had them, and they diminished to impact to mere bruising, instead of loss of skin. They pedal quite well, and don't tend to slide down or get too hot. I certainly don't care about the funky look, because I'm having too much fun with them on!

Comfortable, Lightweight Protection

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

So I got these pads about a month ago and I can definitely say that I am impressed. They are extremely comfortable and you really don't even notice they are there. While pedaling, the pads do not restrict movement in the slightest, and the material is very breathable. You probably shouldn't be using these if you are doing some hardcore downhill riding, but for cross country and all mountain rides, these pads are the bees knees. I am 5'8" 145 lbs and I found the mediums to fit very well.

Nick, I am roughly the same size as you height and weight wise, but I have smaller leg muscles. You said the mediums fit well, what are your leg measurements?

Killer protection

    They hardly feel like they are there. They are incredibly comfortable and the protective foam does its job well. I highly recommend these to anyone who wants full mobility with protection.

    Wear knee pads without wearing knee pads

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I forget they're even there. These are very lightweight, breathable, and almost unnoticeable. Zero slippage. Very happy with my first and probably last set of pads. Obviously not recommended for world cup DH racing. I have the legs of a bicycle riding chicken. Medium fits great.

    when the weather cools I wear always

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Why not, they're comfortable enough to ride in and provide extra protection.

    Super Ridable Knee Pad

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is my second set of these, I went from L to XL after I destroyed my first set and it was the right move. I can now wear the pad on the climbs with no irritation. These things have saved me on a number of occasions, mostly on clumsy falls where I slam into the bike.

    I went with XL; I am 6'2" 190 lbs.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great for all mountain riding--you don't even know they are there while pedaling, but give you a little extra confidence through tough sections. The impact compound on these is a little stiffer than it was a year or two ago. I did not notice any discomfort because of this, but it probably protects a bit better.

    Nice and pliable, but will take a hit

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These pads are awesome for rough trail riding. Easy to pedal in if you so choose and they breathe remarkably well for a set of knee pads. Having taken a couple falls on them I've been pleased with their function in easing the damage and their durability. Highly recommend for those riding trail bikes. Not a great downhill pad, but that's not what they were made for.

    G-form Knee Pads

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Finally decided to get a pair of knee pads after riding for 7 years with only a helmet. I wanted something light weight and very movable while I ride. From reading reviews on how light and breathable these are, I decided to try them out. I am very happy with these pads and hope that they will protect me in the future.

    Just enough!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great pads. They are not overly bulky like many other pads and yet provide just the right amount of protection for minor impacts of trail riding. If you are anything like me (I have large calf/ thighs) I would recommend going a size larger. They seem to disappear on your legs and don't slide around. Possibly the best enduro style pad in my opinion.

    Thanks for taking the time to toss up a review on the G-Form's, Graham! Stoked to hear that these bad boys are working out well for you.

    If I'm right in between sizes according to the size charts, both here and at the G-form website, should I go larger or smaller?

    Hey David,

    I would recommend you size down and go with the smaller choice if you are between sizes in G-Form Pads. Feel free to shoot me any additional questions directly.

    top notch protection / performance

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I wear these paddleboarding and pedaling. While these may not save limbs if you are ragdolling thru a boulder garden, as one reviewer noted, they have certainly spared me more than a couple trips to the ER. Your average wipeout - the one that scrapes wrist to elbow and scars knees - is only embarrassing thanks to these pads. The sticky rubber at the top and bottom keeps them in places and they are barely noticeable when pedaling. When the weather turns nippy, they are warm too.
    I'm on my third pair of G Forms and I highly recommend them to everyone who asks. The only complaint is the stitching where the pad meets the Lycra is weak and my previous two pairs of knee pads have failed at the point. But they still work even with the rip.
    I still use plastic knee pads when I ski, but for biking, these are so much better than the hard-plastic.

    Low profile and the tech actually works

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    Their body armor is second to none. Very low-profile but more importantly it still impacts you. In fact, the harder you fall the more it resists impact, opposite if traditional foam. I watched a demo at Interbike where they dropped a bowling ball onto a pack of M&M’s, once with a typical foam kneepad on top of the candy and once with their kneepad. With the foam pad all of the M&M's were obliterated. With the G-From, not a single M&M was crushed. Unreal.

    Added protection

      It should be obvious that these aren't your full blown DH knee pads. These are an added layer of protection when you just don't know what the trail could throw at you. They've saved me some skin on a few occasions already and wish I had them in years past to do the same. When the full face helmet goes on, then the POC DH pads go on too.

      Like nothing is there

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I am not one to ride with knee pads, but i recently went on a trip to whistler and decided its better to be safe than sorry. These are by far the best knee pads I have ever worn. They are light weight and they DON'T slip down, EVER!! They offer decent protection and a peace of mind. They didn't bother me while pedaling and I even forgot they were on a few times.

      Not that much protection, light though.

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

      I wanted to like these, since they were lighter than the other options. However, they just didn't seem to provide the protection I wanted.
      First, they don't seem to stay centered on my knee well. That is probably because they are not curved or cupped to fit over your knee. Second, there are small unprotected areas in between the padding. When they are curving around your knee/leg, there seems to be a lot of unprotected areas where something like a rocky edge could hurt you.
      I tried the pads out in my house my wearing them and whacking my knee with various items from my hand to a metal water bottle. While they were better than nothing, they were far behind the two other pads I was demoing (POC Joint VPD Air Knee Pads and Troy Lee Designs KG 5400 Knee Guard). I am keeping one of the other options.

      Super light and flexible

        So far have been impressed with how light and unnoticeable these have been, even on longer rides. I don't think I'd want to bang out a Park City point 2 point with these on, but for an afternoon in saddle they are great.

        Light, sleek, protective AM/Enduro Pads

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        When looking for an all mountain/enduro pad, I wanted something sleek and light that I could pedal in all day while providing enough protection for minor spills. These G-forms totally fit the bill. They stay in place reasonably well, only needing minor adjustments throughout the ride. They're machine washable too, which is a major bonus...! My only complaints are that some of the stitching is coming undone, and that they look a bit "spidey." I'd rather something a bit more stylish than techy. Overall the durability/protection to weight ratio is awesome. I confidently recommend these pads.

        Breathable, great protection, very light

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I have both the knee pads and the elbow pads and they work very well!. I purchased these for trail riding and they are definately breathable than most other pads and each time I use them, I forget that they are even on! I just started riding trails this year and already have had a couple crashes with these on. Happy to report no scratches, bruises, or broken knee caps or elbows! These are great to keep your confidence up while riding trails without any worry about crashing.

        D-Rock is correct, if you are doing mainly DH, I would definately get something else with more protection. But overall, these work great for all mountain trail riding.

        Just a side note, on one of the elbow pads, the stitching started coming loose at the top of the sleeve after 1 use, but Backcountry replaced them for free since it was a defect, which was awesome!
