Consider yourself one of the lucky ones if you’ve felt the thrill of soaring down the trail at ridiculously fast speeds. Proper protection at those speeds is essential, and iXS has you covered with the Carve Knee Pads. These lightweight, low-profile pads have the protection and features you need for your adrenaline-fueled, gravity-slaying rides. The AeroMesh material is lightweight and extremely breathable to help keep your arms cool and dry, even on hot summer days. And, it’s antimicrobial so it doesn't absorb odor. Silicone strips inside deliver a no-slip fit and iXS’s LoopLock closures provide compression with maximum security.
• Xmatter: supple, vented, open-cell foam that hardens on impact to disperse shock.
• Kevlar cover: heavy-duty Kevlar covers resist damage, even after repetitive abrasions.
• NockOut: vented 3D padding in critical areas including lower leg, upper leg, and inner/outer knees.
•SideTap padding: integrated, lateral padding for protection against grazes with trail obstacles.
I bought them Saturday morning and wore them that day in the rain. I fully tested them by going over the bar. Worked great. Sunday I fully tested them again by going over the bars, this time I ended up with x rays and a concussion. But knees and elbows were un touched. I fully recommend them but don't ride harder because you now have pads. It just hurts other parts of your body.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
