Familiarity: I've used it several times

I took these on a week-long trip to Whistler and they held up well. They're comfy and I pretty much forgot I was wearing them while riding. They can get a little hot, but not any hotter than similar pads I've worn. I've only done lift access riding in these pads, so I can't really comment on the pedaling comfort, but they seemed fined while pedaling from the car to the park. Some pads have difficulty staying put on your leg, but not these pads. The lower strap is designed to run over the top of your calf muscle, which prevents the pads from sliding down. The best part about these pads is that they do their job--I had one hard crash and the pads worked flawlessly.

I'd totally recommend these for anyone doing lift access riding. If you plan on doing a lot of pedaling, I'd look for something a bit lighter.

Out of the box, my brand new Thor simply didn't respond to rebound adjustment and it had a very harsh top-out knock. So I sent it back and got a new one. Took it for a first ride, was very impressed. My admiration for my new fork lasted until the next day, when I discovered that my fork had the same harsh top-out knock as before. So, I contacted Magura. I basically asked them to fix it under warranty, but instead they told me to just return it again. So I got my money back and decided to go with a rockshox revelation. Apparently a lot of Thors have the same issue. In my opinion, a widespread issue like that on a fork of that caliber is not acceptable. Also, Magura customer service was very poor. They didn't want to take responsibility for the fact that their product has some serious defects. The bottom line is, unless you want to deal with the hassle of a fork with a serious achilles heel and poor customer support, spend your money elsewhere.
