Robert Jensenwrote a review of Kali Protectives Strike Knee/Shin Guard on May 20, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Digging these pads, I haven't taken a serious digger in them yet but feel when I do they will be up to the task. I was wearing a much thinner pad with less protection which I still use on my more XC rides, but for a run in the Mountains with some serious descending I grab these first.
I was a bit in between the S and M on the size chart and went with the small just for the fact that I wanted it a bit tighter around the knees. I'll measure my calf and thigh and add that to my review, if my calf was any bigger they would be to tight.
They stay in place and are pretty comfortable. My only complaint is that if you happen to kneel down in dirt or take a digger you will end up with dirt in the open part of the pad which can then fall out on the floor in the house.
All in all great pad!
