Item # SSO0028


Hot weather knee guards for when your legs can't handle full shinnies.

When you hit the dirt, the impact-sensing SixSixOne Evo d3o Knee Pads go into action, deflecting the blow and saving you from yet another pair of bloody socks. The Evo Knee Pads feature an abrasion-resistant molded-KEVLAR® front panel over SixSixOne's innovative d3o material, a flexible substance that hardens when impacted by an external force. This allows the pads to remain light and flexible without lessening all-mountain and light freeride protection. Side pads support and protect delicate tendons while dual straps and a full neoprene mesh sleeve keep these SixSixOne guards in place.

think the kyle strait's are better.

My advice after wearing both the six six one kyle strait and the six six one evo knee pad......... the kyle strait is more substantial. The padding over the knee cap is more substantial and I believe it would be better for a high speed knee impact or sliding. On the other hand the evo is more light weight and less restrictive. However, I am not sold on the evo d30 technology, as from the first day of messing around with it, I have not been able to get it to stiffen up and protect like it claims. After wearing the Kyle Straits for some time, I think I will return to those.

Very Comfortable

It comes in a nice mesh bag. I think someone had a question about the sizing -- I received the large and when I strapped it on my leg, I was almost surprised about how the velcro strap is barely on there. I almost considered getting an XL, but I think it would have been too big -- in fact, when I wore them this weekend. I actually had to cinch it more snug, because I started to sweat! I love them, you barely notice them when you ride. Awesome protection. Only problem is when you remove them, there are black fabric strands and pills that are left on your leg and thighs! Let your sweaty legs and thighs airdry and you can brush them right off!

No more scabs and scars...

A good crash and nasty scabs got me using a set of these. Very comfortable - you can almost forget you are wearing them. They might seem expensive at first, but when you think about knee surgery its easy to justify forking out the extra cash!

I hand wash with Woolite in a sink, then lay them out on a bath towel to drain and air dry.

Could you use these knee pads for basketball. I have had many knee problems and also have had surgery. In other words, I need extra protection. I also wanted to know if these would damage the hardwood floor and basically, are they suitable for basketball.

Yes, these would probably work great for that...Give em' a shot!

Awesome pads!

Hands down... the best knee pads on the market when for looking at the comfort and protection factors. Realize it doesn't get the full shin coverage that many other leg armor options, but that is what helps make is so comfortable.

I wore them dirt jumping the other evening and had a couple bails as well as taking a pedal bash right on the kneecap and barely felt it. As well, I was driving hom in my car for 20 minutes before I realized I still had them on!

My only complaint is the cost. The Kyle Strait models seem similar and are half the cost. I haven't tried them so I can't compare, but I already own the Evos and am stoked so no need to experiment.

good product

i bought these after missing a landing off a pipe and doing some nerve damage to my knee. they fit like a neoprene knee support you can by from the any sports store. i've had no problems with slips. i was surprised with how well they work; much better than simple foam pads. you need to figure out how to get them to fit best based on the shape of your legs and how they bend, but once you have the dialed in the work very well.

good protection but super delicate

wore the knee pads for three days and the sides have already separated from the pad portion. disappointed, especially since they're pricey.

My knee top is 42cm and bottom is 35cm....

My knee top is 42cm and bottom is 35cm. It falls between Large and Medium so which size should I order?

Best Answer Responded on

When in doubt, I go smaller. I'd rather deal with something being too snug than to have it floating around and not protecting properly. Impact gear that's too big will move around a bunch when you're eating crap. But yo, be savvy! Order up both sizes and return the one that doesn't cut it for you. We've got a bomber return policy to help take the guess-work out of these decisions. Rap with a Gearhead and they'll get you all sorted out.

I am looking for the Six Six One Evo d3o Knee Pad in size small. Does anyone know, where I can find them ( in America)?

comfy and will save you

Ditto on the comfort-can wear them all day....get back from 6 runs and forget you even have them on. Would also venture to say they may offer better protection than hard-pads. Saved me numerous times...pricy but definately worth it. Have not had any issues to durability.

Comfy but fragile.

Hands-down the most comfortable pads I've ever worn. I don't even notice them when wearing them. I've put a knee down a few times and they've stayed in place and done their job, although no super high speed crashes (yet). The stitching however ripped right out as soon as the pad hit dirt. Not sure what to do about that, I left it and they are holding together, for now. Kinda disappointing that a $110 pad should start falling apart on the first impact.

How much protection do they offer? Are they CE en1621-2 level of protection?

Responded on

I absolutely love my d3o pads, however these pads have not been approved (let alone applied) for CE EN1621-2 certification.While I'm sure it'd be nice to have the peace of mind of the certification, I trust the d3o pads with my skin day after day and don't regret it one bit. Hope this helps!

How far up and down from my knee cap should I measure my leg circumference?

Responded on

Envision where a knee pad should rest, and measure there. I'd go ~6" from your kneecap to get a fairly good idea.

how do i know what 661 evo d3o size fit's me best ? I"m 183 c"m 83 Kg

Best Answer Responded on

The size on this is determined by the leg circumference. There are two measurements for each size, there is the upper leg opening and the lower leg opening. On the small the upper is 15 inches (39 cm) and the lower is 12.5 inches (32 cm). Medium has the upper as 16 inches (41cm) and the lower as 13 inches (33cm). Large is upper of 17 inches (43cm) and a lower of 14 inches (36cm). Finally the XL is an upper 18 inches (46cm) and a lower of 15 inches (38cm).
