Crush your line, not your knees.
It's hard enough to concentrate on cleaning a technical section of trail, whether that's a rugged rock garden or a tight switchback disrupted by large roots. Give yourself the peace of mind to conquer these difficult sections of trail while you're suited up in The Carve Evo Knee Pad by iXS. This super-lightweight, highly flexible knee pad takes the sting out of nasty spills on the trail, but without inhibiting your ability to pedal swiftly or flick your bike around with precision.
Certified to European standards for motorcycle padding (EN 1621), The Carve Evo Knee Pad absorbs crushing impacts with its XMatter padding, which is comprised of flexible viscoelastic polymer foam. This XMatter padding is removable, so you can more easily wash these knee pads after long days on the trail. The remainder of the pad is made of lightweight Aeromesh for breathable comfort and lasting freshness with its anti-odor treatment.

- Q & A
Comfortable and Burly
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
If you’re tired of knee pads falling down, give these fellows a try. Having a tightening strap on the top and the bottom is really nice. They are not great for pedaling but in my opinion, any knee pads that are going to save your knees in a gnarly crash are not going to be super comfortable on an epic XC ride. That being said, they have a nice soft material on the inside and if you loosen the straps they were more comfortable than some knee pads i’ve tried. I mostly put these in my pack on the way up and then leave them on for the rest of the day, climbs included.
