Comfortable armor? We love to say 'told you so.'
Knee pads can be a real pain in the, well, in the knee.They're hot,
bulky, and they constantly move around so you spend the better part of
your day pulling your pads up. That's what the chairlift is for, right?
Not anymore. The Troy Lee Designs KG5400 Knee Guard is made with
sweat-wicking stretch mesh fabric and low-profile foam for the most
comfortable knee protection possible. And the biggest bonus? It actually
stays in place.
TLD designed the KG 5400 Knee Guard with comfort as the very top
priority. Troy Lee's X-FIT system uses a wraparound sleeve to keep the
pad in place. Unlike bulky straps, this sleeve moves with the body for a
natural feel. The main body is constructed primarily of stretch mesh in
places that don't see a whole lot of impact and a rugged woven Aramid
material in high-abrasion areas. The stretch mesh fabric allows air to
flow freely through the pad to keep you dry and cool, and also keeps the
weight down. The KG 5400 also incorporates Vent-Trak channels that move
air over the skin to reduce heat and perspiration.
The brunt of most impacts is taken by the internal knee cap that is
designed to stay close to your knee for a natural feel and comfortable
flex. Surrounding this pad is TLD's Strata foam, which moves naturally
with the body while it protects so it doesn't feel like it's binding.
Inside, silicone grippers keep the sleeve in place so it doesn't slide
around uncomfortably while you ride.
