Strengths:    Well made, comfortable.

Weaknesses:    Don't stay put in most crashes.

Bottom Line:   
I wore these for around 1.5 seasons of downhill at the lift-access bike park. They are comfortable when riding, didn't bother me while doing XC riding either. Big downside however is that in two crashes, one that shouldn't have been a big deal and one that was pretty bad, they come right off and leave your knee exposed. I actually had to go to the hospital for stitches on my knee because they slid off (wasn't even moving very fast at all) and in a second crash later that season both knees came sliding off resulting in some pretty bad injury. Everyone reviewing them said get a size up because they tend to be small, but I went with the large (I'm 6' 175lbs) and it didn't matter. I'll be looking for something new this next season.

Strengths:    protects you knee and the sides.

Bottom Line:   
Great pads. Don't go one size up. Pads need to fit tight.

Offers great protection. 1 OTB onto rocks and 1 off dirt jumps. Pads did not slip and provided great side and front protection. Happy I got them.

Fits perfectly with 661 veggies shins for modular padding.
