You started out riding only smooth XC singletrack, doing some light trail riding now and then, and telling yourself knee guards were overkill for the kind of riding you were doing. But that was years ago, and as mountain bikes have become more discipline defying, so have you.

The flexible pads harden on impact and are equipped to perform beyond CE safety standards.

I have never worn knee pads for riding my mountain bike. The other day though I thought I would try them out and when I put them on I was wondering how long I would have them on for as they felt and looked bulky and wasn't sure how comfortable I would be. Flying down the trail though they were not too bad. They breathed well and after getting used to them I didn't even notice them when pedaling. I would recommend the smaller and thinner pair for those like me who don't do anything too crazy. Overall comfortable and don't feel as bulky as they look.
