Strengths:    The best kneepads. Huge, great overall protection, doesn't slide down like the combo kneepads, very comfortable from the start, re-caps available in different colors, don't rip quick, best padding, everybody's jealous ;-)

Weaknesses:    Expensive. For you hardcore kids, SORRY, no children's sizes...

Bottom Line:   
If you have the money, these are a great investment. It seems riders of all styles are wearing them... vert, street, mountain, downhill... I love them. But if you are short of money... you get the gear, and then you dont have the money for a bike to use it with... I reccomend Pro-tec. They are 1/3 the size and aren't half as comfortable, but they get the job done for 1/5 the cost. Bottom line: These are the world's best. (I havn't tried Pro Designed so I can't really say that) But really, look on the cover of THE RIDE OF MY LIFE by MAT HOFFMAN. He is wearing these pads. Enough said.
