Bought a pair for myself and really like them. I do alot of riding during the summer, so when I take them off, my knee and shin are all sweaty. I can live with a sweaty leg for a few minutes rather than have a blown out knee or ripped up shin, due to a fall and not having them.
i have been riding with these for a while now and i love them. they offer great protection and are built very well. the only gripe is that they are a little thick and my boots need a bit of muscle to get buckled, but once buckled i barely notice they are there.
Great purchase! The price is good and they fit my knees perfectly, I like the knee guards because they cover your shin area as well. Very comfortable, the straps are a little tight, but after wearing long socks I did not feel the straps. A really good product!
I purchased these for additional shin and knee protection while wearing my Alipinestars Tec3 boots. I wear them against my underarmor, and under my MX pants. They fit great, the shin guards are a bit large for being put inside a boot, but they fit after loosening up the boot. My only problem is that they've got the velcro for the straps mounted backwards. The rough velcro is on the guard, and the soft velcro is on the straps. This becomes a problem when wearing inside my MX pants, the rough velcro catches on the liner of of the pants, tearing it up and making the pants hard to re-position after the knee-guards are on. The simplest fix is to stretch the straps so the rough velcro is completely covered; this just barely works for me, if my legs were any larger it would be uncomfortable. Another idea is to buy a strip of velcro, find the most comfortable position for the straps by putting the guards on, and using the soft part of the purchased velcro cut small pieces to cover the rough velcro that is still visible with the straps attached.
These kneeguards are an inexpensive way to keep you knees and shins protected. The do just what there intended for at a great price. The only complaint with these kneeguards is that they are a little big in the knee cap area but still feel fine.
The guards fit great but the straps are a little small, but I have big legs. The protection is top notch. The shin guards are kind of thick so they fill up the top of my boots. May be better with the shorter boots but still a great product. Several impacts on rocks and did not break. They fit well under MX pants.
