Strengths:    light, durable, built well, comfortable to wear and ride with, machine washable. can be worn in any ride including long climbs.

Weaknesses:    at the beginning of the ride doesn't stay in place, only when starting to sweat a little would stay in place althouh straps are tight. only 2 sizes (L/XL and M/S). lower strap has large plastic part of the TLD logo that is not so soft and flexible and tend to rub the upper shin in long rides.

Bottom Line:   
I bought these pads after few times I hit my knees while falling.
The first few months I enjoyed very much riding with those pads and having the protection on gave me some more confidence during descents.
When I fell while wearing them and hit the knee it was a life saver, no bruises, scratches or any internal damage to the knee or knee cap.
after few months of use I notices that my upper shin is bleeding from the rubbing of the lower strap TLD logo (during riding it wasn't noticible, but after riding it hurt for some time and took few days to heal).

I would highly recommend those pads, however, due to the issue I described I definitely urge to look for some other alternative.

I'm currently looking to buy the SixSixOne Kyle Strait hoping I will not have the same issue there since the hard logo on the lower strap doesn't exist, so I guess it should be fine.

Date Reviewed: July 10, 2011

Strengths:    Very comfortable, don't seem to get too hot. Saved my knees quite a few times now. compared them side by side with the 661 Kyle Straights and whereas the KS seemed very comfortable initially the T-Bone just looks and feels like its more pad.

Weaknesses:    Slipped on very first fall when front tire washed out on a berm. didn't have the straps very tight though.

Bottom Line:   
After the first fall on them I wasn't very stoked with the fit and thought I bought to large a pair but after adjusting them and tightening up the straps I've been very happy with them. Went on a really long ride yesterday with them and went otb 3 times! Stayed put and hardly noticed them until they were needed.

Date Reviewed: December 31, 2008

Strengths:    hardshell under the fabric. side wall padding. slim design

Weaknesses:    tight. sizes are small/medium large/xl xl/xxl I ordered the xxl but package and pad say xl. the company says xl/xxl is what i have. if any question on size, go larger.

Bottom Line:   
decent coverage, a little pricey but probably worth it. it would be nice if they were a little bigger but the neoprene feels as if it will stretch out with use.

Date Reviewed: September 21, 2008

Strengths:    comfortable, cool looking, not bulky. They protect more than just your knee.

Weaknesses:    order next size up, they run small. Also some of the threads are pretty nasty. I needed to trim them back, then I used a lighter to smooth out the synthetic fibers that were poking through the fabric. much better!

Bottom Line:   
If you want to ride hard and it's not to hot, wear these!
