Ride like a superhero.

Wearing knee pads is somewhat like wearing a superhero cape. They might not actually alter your natural born abilities, but they sure do give you the confidence to try harder than without them, so you can explore what you really are capable of doing. When you want to test the limits and push a little bit harder, and you want the ability to charge uphill just as hard as down, reach for the Ion K-Lite R Knee Pads. Designed to give you just the right amount of protection, the pads are constructed with 3D-molded high-density memory foam that shields you from skin-shaving rocks and hits against stray branches and trail debris.

The Ion K-Lite R Knee Pads are designed to breathe, with a fully mesh back, and a perforated lightweight neoprene front that might not be as breathable as mesh, but provides an extra hit of protection for your thigh and shin. The pads secure into place with an assortment of different straps, including a hook-and-loop strap at the top of the thigh, wide internal silicone non-slip grip tape on the thigh and calf, and Ion's own unique Snug Loop that uses a sticky skin neoprene to form an X along the back of your calf and knee area, securing the pad from any slipping. The pads do not use a hardcap over the patella, making them more ideal for enduro and trail riding than big days riding DH, but if you're looking for something pedal-friendly that gives you more coverage than bare skin, or long shorts, the Ion K-Lite R Knee Pads are your ticket to protected knees.

  • Light pedal-friendly protection for knees
  • 3D molded high-density memory foam protects
  • Perforated neoprene extends coverage on legs
  • Mesh back allows for moisture transfer and breathing
  • Secure into place with snug-loop strap, and top strap
  • Silicone gripper at top and bottom eliminate slipping

Ion Rocks!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I discovered this brand thanks to Backcountry and it puts all other knee pads to shame (except possibly the POC VPD 2.0 - but only as a contender for the best). I've been loving all the knee pads from them, and they are all a little different, which is great - different types of riding styles and preferences. The protection is also great, as I have crashed a few times on them and had no sliding and my knees were protected!

Great stuff!

Great product, fits well and more than just knee protection with the upper shin guard. highly recommend!

Really quality pads but unfortunately won't fit over REALLY large calves.

Lightweight Protection

    I wanted a new knee pad that was lighter for pedaling but more substantial than the G Form. After trying the zip off version and these I chose these. I can toss them around my ankles for pedaling but they are so flexible I frequently just leave them up. They mold to my knee perfectly and while I haven’t taken a lot of crashes on them they have saved me a handful of times and don’t slide around when I go down. Definitely worth trying out. This is my top knee pad pick at the moment

    I have been on a hunt for a protective yet agile knee pad. These are it they are protective peddle great and look awesome. Super happy with them and will be looking at ION for more Mountain bike gear.
