Strengths:    These pads are well ventilated,light and look cool.

Weaknesses:    I managed to shatter the kneecap on the pad my second time riding them and they slide all over the place.

Bottom Line:   
These pads are too expensive with not enough protection, durability, or comfort. Go buy yourself a pair of Roaches!

Date Reviewed: June 28, 2004

Strengths:    good protection, very durable.

Weaknesses:    when they get sweaty, they start to slide down. you end up adjusting them more than you should. the straps come off easily also.

Bottom Line:   
if you sweat, dont get them. they slide down every 10 minutes. invest your money in the roach ralleys or the six six one races (my personal choice). the 911s provide great protection and have probably saved me alot of stitches, but they slide down too much and the straps come undone waaay too easily.

Date Reviewed: November 12, 2003

Strengths:    This is a review for the new 2003 model pad. There are 3 generations of Fox 911 knee/shin models floating around out there.
The oldest one has a sock pull over lycra makeup and is absolute crap.
The one in the pic here at the top, the '01 is pretty good, offers great protection, but it tends to slip down over your knee, leaving the top of your knees exposed. Mind you every top selling pad on the market right now suffers from this same problem .
The newest model is the best shin/knee guard on the market. It is the only one that stays up, offering excellent consistent protection for your entire knee. It also is not too hot.


Weaknesses:    The top strap velcro, above the knee and behind your leg, has a tendancy to roll under, chafing the back of your knee.

Bottom Line:   
The latest model of the 911 is the best pad you can buy right now. If Fox incorporates the kind of attention to detail and comfort that Roach's new pad has, especially the inside ridges keeping the pad away from you skin and the use of comfortable materials, we will have achieved perfection in pad design.

Similar Products Used:   New Roach Rally DH- An incredibly high quality pad. The quality blows away anything else on the market. The pad has ridges on the inside which keep the padding away from your legs and helps keep you cool. Soft comfortable construction and incredible protection with well placed thick wrap around pads and a well designed hard outer shell. Wade Simmons helped design it, so I guess it only figures that the best rider in the world would come up with a good product.

Strengths:    there are very durable. i have gone off a 15 foot drop and had to bail and landed on them on a pinecone and nothing happend to them or me. very strong and look cool.

Weaknesses:    none, except if they straps are not on all the way they rub against you and kinda of hurt.

Bottom Line:   
extreme freeriders and downhillers should buy, if ure not a very good biker dont buy them. they are very good and worth the money.

Strengths:    Looks good, Strong, good protection. FOX!

Weaknesses:    Nothing really.

Bottom Line:   
Well worth the money spent. You won't know the effectiveness of the product till you see the scratches and deep grooves on the shin/knee plastic, where your skin is supposed to be if you are not wearing em.

Date Reviewed: August 7, 2003

Strengths:    Fit, comfort, stay put in pretty big accidents!

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Of all the pads I tried the 911's fitted best. I thought they might be a bit hot for all day riding, but in the end I wore them all the time in the Alps. Even on a 60km cross country ride with temperatures in the mid 30's they didn't get too uncomfortable.

I bought these specifically for a trip to the Alps and they saved me from serious indjury on the first corner of the first run! Most of our party used Dianese, but to me it didn't fit as well and moved about way too much when you crashed... witness one of our party ending up with 5 stiches in his knee after his Dianese slipped down his leg.

I'm 6'4", 200lbs, and the L/XL fitted perfectly.

Date Reviewed: August 2, 2003

Strengths:    They are hot, slide when pedaling, slide when you fall, slide, slide, and they do not stay in place.

Weaknesses:    Thanks to fox I'm in pain at the moment, since this flaky product does not stay in place. Spend your money on a quality product, not this one.

Bottom Line:   
This product should be recalled.

Submitted by a Cross Country Rider from Chelmsford, MA

Date Reviewed: July 31, 2003

Strengths:    This review is for 2003 Fox 911 Knee-Shin Guards. They fit great, do not slid down, not that hot to wear, and no chafing. I have not crashed hard yet, when I do, I will update

Weaknesses:    I am 5'8" and not that bulky, but I had to go with the XL size because the top velcro strap is too short

Bottom Line:   
I just started riding again after waiting a year for my surgically repaired wrist to heal from the last wipeout. I am almost 40, not healing as fast, so I am wearing the extra armor for added protection

Date Reviewed: June 4, 2003

Strengths:    super strong

Weaknesses:    slide down

Bottom Line:   
They slide down when you ride. This problem can be fixed by sewing two standard knee braces to the pad. I tried this and now they are super solid, and don't slide down at all. They save my shin/knees.

Strengths:    cheap for me, good articulation, light weight, cool

Weaknesses:    ankle strap too long, thigh strap too short, outside leg protection lacking

Bottom Line:   
these are great if you put them on over pants, they stay put and give good protection, could use a little more outside leg protection, straps are screwy lengths

Strengths:    great look, gave me good protection, saved me from multiple trps to the hospital

Weaknesses:    don't stay put just like everyone elses

Bottom Line:   
these pads are great if you don't take very long rides at a time, as soon as you start to hammer they move on you and cause all sorts of trouble. mine have stood up pretty well after a year and a half they are still intact and this is riding everyday thrashing for at least 2 hours

Weaknesses:    Only shinguards!
Cost tooooo much for shinguards!


Bottom Line:   
if someone gives em to ya buy some leg warmers and pull them tight over the top of the knee section and safety pin them to your shorts! other wise go try something else. It will say you some scraps and $$!
