In a word: Terrible
- I've used it several times
These pads have been absolutely useless for me. They slide down while riding so easily that it is pointless to wear them. Every time I've taken a spill they weren't in place to protect my knees. I doubt its a sizing issue either. I wouldn't be able to fit into a smaller pair.

- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These pads are quite good. Lots of protection for lightweight pads. They do have a CE certified protection rating so you know that they can take a punch. At first when I put them on, I was a little worried about the comfort because the pad itself is so stiff and stout but after riding those concerns went away. The pads were not on my mind the entire ride. The pads are quite flexible while pedaling. The rest of the pad is made with a lightweight breathable mesh. They stay put very well and haven't slipped on me. The longer length is very good, so it covers up your ugly thighs. Sizing seems spot on. My only improvements would be to have a silicone strip on the bottom to help with retention as well. Also, it seems like the pad is super stout but the mesh is on the lighter side. Seems like the material could be more stout to match the pad, but the material may hold up well to long term abuse. We will see.

Always wear pads
- True to size
Great pads they are comfortable enough to wear all the time the side protection could be better but still have enough for the type of riding I do. I've had multiply crashes where I've landed right on my knee and been just fine. i'd recommend these pads for anyone who wants a light weight pad that's easy to pedal in and offer enough protection for any ride.
