Which Knee Pads to Choose for MTB Riding?
If you’re the type of MTB rider who likes to push the limits, a little bit accident prone or even if you just like the peace of mind and confidence that safety brings, then a set of kneepads is an excellent investment for you.
Kneepads are a common sight on the trails these days. In fact, it’s more likely to see MTB riders wearing pads these days rather than leaving their knees vulnerable to the sharper elements of the trail.
Gone are the days when you had to choose between either going without protection or forfeiting your comfort and freedom of movement for a monstrous contraption that chafed and drenched your legs in sweat.
Leatt knee pads offer you superior comfort, durability, mobility and impact protection. They are lighter, more breathable, and better looking than ever before, thanks to advanced technology and extensive development and testing. Two popular choices are the AirFlex Knee Guard Hybrid and Pro that are ultra slim with soft impact gel.
AirFlex Knee Guard Hybrid
The Hybrid offers you super slim AirFlex gel impact protection with a sliding hardshell knee cup. The knitted base layer with MoistureCool and AirMesh wicking fabrics and perforations offers superior comfort and ventilation all day long. The pre-curved 3D design provides the optimal fit, but most importantly, the Hybrid offers you CE certified side and upper knee impact protection. The guards also won’t slip down, thanks to silicone printed cuffs.
The Pro is super slim and lightweight thanks to soft AirFlex gel, offering CE certified side and upper knee impact protection. Featuring a pre-curved design for optimal fit and premium comfort thanks to MoistureCool and AirMesh wicking fabrics. All protection materials are perforated for ventilation and the non-slip cuffs are silicone printed to keep the guards in place.
