Strengths:    Great front and rear coverage. Very durable, have taken a ton of abuse in a short period of time. Good protection on the rear from pedals etc... Price is very good and they are very comfortable, they also look pretty cool


Weaknesses:    Slip down slightly and have to pull them up. The top strap seems alittle long. For $15 they are a steal though

Bottom Line:   
For $15 you get a phenomenal product. They slip down slightly but are comfortable, provide great front and rear protection, and have withstood a ton of abuse

Strengths:    They are very good pads. Let you legs breath. Hold up well to a lot of biggg crashes

Weaknesses:    Center two straps needed to be longer. I could not get them around my calf.

Bottom Line:   
Good all around pad. I finally cracked one after a hard hit to a big rock. I got right back up with no blood on me. They did there job. It would be a five but the 2 straps are just to short.

Strengths:    Full wrap around protection ... has saved my knees and shins on too many ocassions .

Weaknesses:    Velcro a bit to short ... to hold . May want to add some sticky rubber to the inside to prevent slipage .

Bottom Line:   
GREAT PRODUCT ...I don't understand why they shanged to only frontal coverage ... take a pedal in the back of the calf and you'll know what I'm talking about !

Strengths:    They make you look like a pro mountain biker. Once you wear them a few times, it feels like your not wearing them at all. When you go downhill or just plain really fast, you can actually feel the air going through the holes in the plastic and through the padding onto your shins. If you get the strap on at the bottom on tightly, it shouldn't move. Also, rock solid.

Weaknesses:    If you get a ton of mud on the one part that snaps off so that you can take them off, it makes it almost impossible to get off. It takes forever! Other than that, the tags on the inside kinda get annyoing, but you can always cut them off. THEY DON'T COVER THE BACK OF YOUR LEGS! :(

Bottom Line:   
They give you confidence, although I've had a few time when my foot slips off the pedal and it gets me right in the back of the leg. Im really tall (6'4) and the shin guard exposes like 2 inches of my leg near my ankle.....I just wear high socks. These are good shin/knee guards.

Bottom Line:   
these are by far the absolute best knee pads on the market to date. these have the best knee flexibility over any other pad. I have been through many pads and these have not only lasted the longest, but are the easiest and most comfortable
