  • D3O stays flexible while riding, hardens upon impact
  • Breathable neoprene sleeve for a comfortable, secure fit

As far as comfort goes for a bulkier pad, these puppies rock (barely notice them, even on the uphill climbs), and I love black or grey gear (a little hard to come by in women’s specific stuff)! The biggest thing I ran into was at the beginning of this year’s season, the fit was solid, but by a few weeks ago, the strap isn’t as tight, and I have no more room to go as far as the Velcro strap is concerned (and I am at the very edge). I took a gamble on these because I am barely at the minimum measurement requirements for the Small, and I worried about natural stretching with use, so it’s not really the item’s fault. Would love if Fox made an XS; I really love their products! Until then, I think I am going to try the Dakine Slayer pads as the sizing has a wider range. However, as long as you meet or slightly exceed the measurement requirements, these are amazing pads!

I initially LOVED these knee pads. Lots of protection, great comfort while pedaling, and quite breathable. However, After just about 4 months of not so frequent use (Winter season) the backs of the pads are already shredded and falling apart. For $80 I expected a more durable product. Would NOT recommend unless you are prepared to replace them every season.

Keep coming back to these knee pads

Like the Ranger short from Fox I keep coming back to the launch knee pad when it comes time to buy new knee pads every other year or so. They fit and protect fairly well and feel nice. I generally use these for shuttling or riding chairlifts so I’m not sure how well they would do as a pedaling knee pad but for my purposes they work great. Would recommend.
