Barrett Coxwrote a review of DAKINE Hellion Knee Pads on September 18, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Coming from the Dakine Slayer pads (which are awesome as well), and wanting something a little burlier for bike park days, these seem to be perfect so far. The adjustable strap up top helps keep them in place while you're riding and though I haven't crashed in them yet, the padding seems more than sufficient. I'll probably stick with the Slayer for pedaling, but these will be the go-to for shuttles and lift laps.
