Pedal-hungry pads for saving skin.
There are days for the full on body armor, but pedal-heavy trail days are not them. For the days when pedaling to the top sends you up thousands of feet, but you want some protection on the descent, reach for the Ion K-Sleeve. Super-lightweight, the K-Sleeve is made from 3D shaped mesh, with lighter weight mesh on the back, and slightly heavier weight mesh on the front, so your knees can breathe from all angles. The pad is made from high-density 3D molded memory foam that is perforated for keeping sweat moving away from your skin. This pad does not use a heavy-duty hardcap, since lightweight is the goal, but it provides excellent protection from scrapes and cuts if a loose berm sends you flying off the trail. The exterior of the memory foam pad is covered with an aramid fabric, which offers exceptional tear resistance in the event of a crash. The knee pads are stretchy all the way around, and secure into place with a silicone gripper at the top and bottom, but lack bulky straps, allowing them to pack down small so you can keep them in your hydration pack.
