Why We Like The Summit Knee Guard

When we're tearing up the singletrack, we like protection, but we like it to be low-key and streamlined. Pearl Izumi's Summit Knee Guard does the job. Its longer leg sleeve is designed with silicone-backed gripper elastic bands to ensure everything stays in place, and the low profile design is constructed to be comfortable while pedaling. The Summit Knee Guard uses D30 viscoelastic and EVA foam to protect your knees.

  • Streamlined knee guard that protects riders on the singletrack
  • D30 viscoelastic sheet material and EVA foam for protection
  • Lightweight 4-way stretch Cordura fabric in key areas
  • Main sleeve mesh fabric provides breathability

Stay in Place and Not Too Hot

I haven't tried a lot of pads but picked these up for when my trail rides get into rockier terrain. The grippers at top and bottom keep these in place quite well despite the main mesh material not having much stretch. When tucked under my liner grippers I didn't have to adjust them once on my pedally trails but also didn't slide on them to see how well they stay put. They material didn't make me too sweaty, it was about what I expected. Durability seems like it will be fine unless the mesh gets caught on branches.


Looking for sizing direction on these knee pads but can't find any anywhere, can you help me?
