Strength:

Sizing chart is spot on. Great fit. Really flexible. Coverage and protection is perfect. Barely even notice them while riding.

Weakness:

My only complaint is having to take my shoe off to put them on.

I ride all sorts of different trails. These knee pads offer great comfort. Even better coverage. I've taken a few good slams on them so far, my knees felt fine afterwards. No tears. Great material. Overall I'd highly recommend them

Strength:

These pedal really well for me. Open in back of the knee, and lighter fabric behind the straps make it nice.

Weakness:

Um, no.

Coming from Rector skate pads, and Roach Rally FR leg armor, these are a breath of fresh air. They fit well even though I have large calfs. Great venting because of the open back, and they are really comfortable pedaling. Enough that I forget they are on. Sweet. I bought them and wore them the first time for three days in Moab just now. Totally great.

Strength:

...adding to above review: these pads have a couple of great advances over the KS model which are; the padding block below the main knee cap now has a hard cover (underneath the kevlar fabric). several times i have had a pointed rock go into my lower knee through that lower area, or through the stitched gap between the two. i ended up glueing plastic to this area on my KS which has done the trick.
the rage knee cup also seems to encase the knee more substantially in the protective cup, although it is a bit oversized for me so not as 'fitting'.
also, the kevlar fabric may not tear as easily as the old cover.

Weakness:

as above.

better protection than KS model.

Strength:

everything but the below weakness:

Weakness:

...these have a much larger opening in the back (behind the knee joint) than the 2011 kyle strait version. this opening allows the sides to bunch up and open outwards when the knee is flexed. the result is that they don't hug the knee as well as the straits, and the side and rear of the knee feels somewhat exposed, so the pad generally does not feel as secure nor as comfortable as the earlier KS model to me. it feels like it is collapsing around the knee during flexion rather than supporting, and bunches out from the side of the leg, which could lead to it snagging.

buy the kyle straits while you still can... i know of folk snapping up all the old stock they can.
