Knee pads recommendations


Well-Known Member
Like some folks alluded to, there are different "levels" of padding to choose from. On one end there is the minimalistic "padded sleeve" style that would likely be the most apropos for simple XC riding. On the far end is heavily padded/armor plated DH pads which would be highly uncomfortable and cumbersome for xc riding. And there are plenty in between depending on how much protection you ultimately want. All are going to suck riding XC in the summer though.

I understand it sucks to get road rash but maybe think about what the actual likelihood it can happen again? I once bought a set of TLD trail skins after a low side left me with some nasty rash but then never actually used it considering how hot it is riding Xc here in the summer. I might use them if riding a new/unknown park but havent yet.
