One Industries Conflict Knee Guards $74.95
You can't ride without knees.
When it comes to body armor, our motorized brethren have been perfecting it much longer then we have. That's why we're glad to see companies like One Industries expanding to the mountain bike side of things. Now, gear like its Conflict Knee Guards share aspects developed from a highly competitive and technology driven moto market.
For example, you'll find superior impact protection in the Conflict line of armor due to its thru-molded CE foam. CE Foam is certified in Europe for use in motorcyclist protective clothing, making it more than ample for preventing injury on the gravity propelled side of things. The foam is centralized at the knee for direct impact protection. Along the sides, however, is integrated EVA foam for added, flexible protection.
However, not everything about the Conflict is directly derived from moto products, as mountain biking has specific requirements. The Conflict's shape is pre-curved to ensure a snug fit that won't restrict blood flow or pedaling movements, and its neoprene chassis is perforated for abundant ventilation. Aside from its anatomic shape, the Conflict has elastic straps with hook-and-loop closures to snugly hold it in position.
The One Industries Conflict Knee Guards are available in the color Black and in four sizes from Small to X-Large.
