Niko Woodwarskiwrote a review of Six Six One Comp AM Knee Guards on June 16, 2014
I fall. A lot. Gotta push yourself, right?. Well I thought I needed some better knee pads for downhilling than the crappy wal-mart ones that have kept the skin on my knees for years. So I stop Jans Sports and pick up a pair of these boys before heading up to Deer Valley for opening weekend.
During the first few laps, I notice these things like to slide down the calf after some heavy pedaling, leaving the knee unprotected. I tried to tighten the velcro straps multiple times and this seemed to eventually help, so I thought I was golden.
A bit of loose gravel on a berm proved me wrong. Went sidewise and landed on my left knee where the pad easily slipped down my leg. Now I have a hole in my knee and pair of bloody pads that will sit in my garage until a friend needs to barrow a spare pair.
Do yourself a favor and spend the extra gold on pads that have lower straps to help secure them to your leg.
