Item # TLD00QX

You'll forget you're wearing it.

You'd consider yourself a minimalist when it comes to spending time on the trails, and it's taken more than a few good crashes and several lasting scars to convince you that wearing padding when you ride could be in your best interests. Troy Lee Designs created the Speed Knee Sleeve for people like you.

Lightweight, breathable, and flexible, the sleeve provides 4mm of D3O foam cushioning to shield your knees and shins without inhibiting your ability to spin the pedals quickly. The entire sleeve is constructed free of seaming to eliminate the likelihood of chafing or irritation, and it features reflective logos to keep you visible in case you have to ride a few miles on the roads to get to the trailhead. The abrasion-resistant cover will save you from scrapes and scratches against trail furniture, while the silicone gripper band keeps the whole piece in place so you can focus on your ride.

Great light weight knee pad!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The first sentence of the description is spot on! I rode for years without knee pads and as my riding got more progressive so did my wounds when it went wrong. I ride everywhere, on every kind of terrain, hot or cold. So when I finally decided to get some knee pads I didn't want anything bulky, interfered with my pedaling, had to breathe well in the hot weather, but provided me some protection. I've owned them for a little over a month now and I've used them on about 15 different rides ranging from XC, to good ole all mountain riding, to some gnarly downhill and they have done everything I was looking for a knee pad to do for me. They're light weight so they stay in place all day and do not to interfere with my pedaling, they breath well as not to be ridiculously hot, and best of all they protect you knee in the event of an unfortunate dismount. If you're looking for a good knee pad to wear wherever you ride, this is your pad!

For sizing reference since it wasn't an option in the pull-down menu of the review, I'm 6'4" 205lbs and I got the XL/XXL

I will state that I did not but these knee pads from backcountry as because of the aforementioned reasons I wanted to try on several different items and put them through the paces before deciding on a product. However, I purchase a ridiculous amount of product from backcountry and I value the reviews of those who use the gear when considering purchasing a product so here's my two cents on these knee pads.

Sweet Lightweight Pad

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a great pad if you want some extra protection while spending hours in the saddle. The padding is very minimal but gives great protection while trail riding. These are super comfortable and a great choice for a lightweight pad.

Great pedaling knee pad!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M/L

If you like the climb as much as the descent, then this knee pad fits the bill. I find my pedaling to be unhindered by these pads, without any discomfort. I’ve had no problems keeping them in place. The gripper band works flawlessly. Both the face fabric on the knee, as well as the sleeve material, have held up well. My only complaint, and the reason for the 4 stars, is that there could be more padding extending from the shin to the side. I’ve washed out in a turn once with these on, and the only place that got scratched up were on the side of my calves.
