Comfy, reasonably good padding


silicon grippers pull your leg hair

I haven't crashed on these pads yet, but the padding seems reasonably sturdy for the trail riding that I do. I think it should help cushion the impact. If I was a downhill-focused rider, I'd probably look for a more aggressive pad, though.

These pads are quite unobtrusive. I ride xc/trails with them, and I pretty quickly forget that I'm wearing them. After I found my special place with them, they never slip, either.

I found the fit guide on the Race Face website to be accurate. I bought XL - which, as a 'medium' sized guy, really surprised me. I ride a medium sized bike, I wear medium sized shorts and have medium sized elbow pads. But I kept measuring out as size "XL" for these knee pads, so I took a deep breath and bought the XL - which fit great. I guess either I have some big-time ripped legs, or there are some skinny MF'ers in this world. Not sure which, but XL it is, for me.

One tip is that after I set the velcro strap on top, I then reach down and pull the shin opening up just a bit, so there isn't any tension pulling the top of the knee pad down. They don't slip, and they're comfy this way.

The silicon grippers pull your leg hair trying to get them off after a ride, though. Minor detail.
