    It hurts every time you fall on a bike, but you still see tons of people riding without padding. Why? Well, probably because plenty of pads are bulky, annoying, hot, and uncomfortable. Troy Lee Designs knows the feeling, so it designed the KG 5400 Knee Guard to be a cool, flexible, and non-slip pad that'll save you from spills without killing your pedaling flow. Over your knee, the KG 5400 combines an internal kneecap pad with low-profile Strata foam padding to protect your skin 'n' bones from shredding, while an aramid weave in exposed places helps increase abrasion resistance. The less-exposed areas of the sleeve is woven from stretch mesh, which helps you stay cool and dry, and TLD also hooked up Vent-Trak ventilation channels to increase air flow and comfort. Last of all, the inside of the KG 5400 features silicone grippers to keep it from sliding around, so you can pedal and shred the downhills without stopping to adjust every five minutes.

    Best guards on the market

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I tried on a heap of guards as comfort was important. Found buying a size up fitted better. Really comfortable, and faily light, with good riding position.Can ride in these all day in 100% humidity and get no chaffing. Good coverage. Have the matching elbow guards. Some stitching has frayed, but still keeping shape.

    The only option for women

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    As a 5'4'' woman, the xs Troy Lee stuff is pretty much all I can wear. But, the stuff is great so it's not too much of an issue. It's just annoying that nothing else is designed for women.

    Comfortable lightweight pad

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I was always on the hunt for a lightweight, super ventilated and comfortable knee pad that still offered decent protection. For me, these have been perfect for several seasons. They always stay in place even during warm weather, and they have held up even when I bailed onto them a few times over the years. Make sure you get a good snug fit since there are no straps and enjoy!

    great light weight throw in your pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I use to never wear knee guards, but after a few crashes I decided to find some light weight guards I could throw in the camel bak and only put them on when I'm about to do a decent decent. I haven't crashed with them *yet* but as far as comfort while riding they are better than expected even when doing some climbing. I pretty much always carry them in my pack now if there is going to be any decent downhill on the ride...

    Protection value seems a bit suspect

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These work as advertised and are a light weight, not too hot, trail knee pad that can be worn where climbing may be involved. The padding on the knee is small and a little suspect. Fortunately, I haven't had to test these yet. I'm concerned about their ability to stay in place during a fall.

    Versatile Knee Pad

      These are my go to knee pads. Super lightweight, easy to pedal in, and fairly protective. This is a great pad for trail riding to freeride. The silicon on the knee really holds them in place so there is no need for straps. These are awesome for everything except maybe the burliest of DH tracks.
