Pedal ready coverage for your knees.

Pedal-able protection is hard to nail down, but Ion manages to get the job done with the K-Lite Zip Knee Pads. With the same over all, lightweight construction of the regular K-Lite pad, the K-Lite Zip offers a hardcap over your kneecap for extra support against big crashes, firm 3D foam along the sides of your knee, and a supportive calf strap for the ride, but with, as the name would imply, the added benefit of a zipper for easy on and off access. This easy-on and off zip offers you some consolation when you've already laced up your shoes for a bike park day, and realize you forgot to throw on your knee pads first, and also gives you the option of taking them off for long and sweaty climbs, with an easy-on at the top when you're getting ready for a rowdy descent.

The Ion K-Lite Zip Knee Pad is low profile, designed to fit comfortably under a pair of baggies, and the cut-out in the back allows for breathing. The pad is constructed mostly from neoprene, but Ion uses its own lightweight construction to make sure it's not too warm. The inside has targeted spots of sticky skin neoprene that helps keep the pad locked into place when you're pushing it through rock gardens and off drops.

Great pads!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Looking for a pad that allows for efficient pedaling while staying put and offering protection on the way down? These pads can do that! Have had them about 3 months and durability is good. Use them in Mt Penn, PA which features climbing and then downhill fun. The zip feature is nice for removing them without taking off shoes. If you're mainly doing DH, then these might not be ideal option, but great for trail riding!!

Gread pads!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I ride in Albuquerque, NM in 95+F degree weather. Do the pads get hot? Yes. But, do I get used to them? Yes. I wouldn’t say that I "forget" about them when riding, but they don't bother me at all. They stay in place when I'm pedaling up steep hills and when I blast down rocky sections. As for fit, they run small. I'm 6'0" 200 lbs and the XL fit me great. If you are in between sizes, go up. Having a zipper on the side is really helpful. It's best to zip them on around your shins and pull them up….no need to take off your shoes. I would buy these again.
