ION K-Lite Knee Pad $89.95
Get rowdy, but do it safely.
Save some skin when you're getting rowdy on the trail with the Ion K-Lite Knee Pads. Designed for every day riding, the K-Lite pads are lightweight, breathable, and happy to pedal up your favorite trails with their slim profile that fits under shorts with ease, and proven protection, so you're covered when you take a big digger. The K-Lite Knee Pads utilize Ion's 3D shaped fit that is tailored to the asymmetrical, 3-dimensional shapes our knees have. The hardcap in the knee comes from the innovative German company, SAS-TEC, that holds high respect in the motorcycle industry for creating some of the most resilient protection — and with a background in high-speed safety we're comfortable asserting that its designers know a thing or two about how to keep us safe.
A solid knee pad it's got to do more than protect, though, it has to fit well, too, so a lot of thought was put into the comfort of this pad. Ion's designers built the pad with an X-shaped snug-loop strap on the back of the calf that uses sticky-skin neoprene to lock its self onto your calf for no slip when pedaling, silicone grippers at the top and bottom, two adjustable hook-and-loop straps for dialing in the fit, and an open back for letting your knees breathe. The pads are made from lightweight neoprene that lets heat escape while protecting your skin all around.

Sweaty and tight
These pads seem to be made of good materials and the pad/guard itself is very gentle on the inside against my knee. However, the second I skipped these on my skin began to sweat under the pad and I wasn't even doing anything. They also are difficult to pull on and remove. I felt that the thigh was too tight and the calf too loose, no adjustment straps to fix that on these. I personally think I would prefer a different brand with adjustable straps and different materials. These definitely weren't made for larger thigh people. I can tell these would cause me to have sores from the moisture.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Overall, these are a great set of trail pads.
Solid protection - SAS-Tech provides great protection for the kneecap.
Fit: The asymmetrical design makes sense, and the pads stay in place without fail
They aren't as breathable as some other lightweight pads, like the Dainese Trail Skins or some of the super light XC style pads. That being said, these offer superior protection for the weight.
