Submitted by Etienne Pariseau a Downhiller from Montreal

Date Reviewed: July 13, 2001

Strengths:    Anatomic fit, lasts forever(had then since 97), great protection, washable, hold well even full of mud n water...
I believe they fit and protect better(as in more) than Dainese and are not and week to tear open.

Weaknesses:    HOT, a bit heavy, really hard to find, size vary from year to year...

Bottom Line:   
Great product, still protecting after 4 years. Worth every penny!

Bottom Line:   
These things are great. They stay right in place, they protect the knee and the all the leg. They have saved me some stiches. I think ther'e the best, i've tried fox, and for the price, V-Top is right on the buzzer!!!

Bottom Line:   

I have had the knee/leg set for 3 years now. The hard plastic outer covers have hundreds of cuts, gouges, and abrasions on them. I have worn them well over 100 days, and fallen on many of those days. (I'm not a very stable rider.) The interior padding is still fine. The 4 velcro bands still have stretch and attach well. Overall, extreemly durable product. Design is excellent. The knee is articulated and moves freely. The lower leg protectors have a specific cut to protect the ankle bones. These things work wonderfully and have saved my legs countless times.

Bottom Line:   

Got the stuff for free from V-Top/Rovex. Looked nice. Rode it. Okay. Surfed,
uh-oh. The lycra rips from even the smallest slide. Did it with both the padded shorts and the Leg/knee/shin Bib Tight armor. Great idea but shoddy materials. Gave the remainder to friends to use. I'll stick with Dainese. It lasts. This S@$% is practically disposable. Save your coins for REAL ARMOR. C'est la vie.

Bottom Line:   

This plastic shelled, anotomically fitting armour is great. I launched of the side of a trail totally
out of control at about 15 km/hr, and dropped about 5 feet into a rock infested bank. The
rocks were about the size of grapefruits. I landed with all my weight on my left knee, which
dug a crater about 12 inches deep. If I hadn't being wearing this armour, I would be
writing this review from a hospital bed. Instead, I got up and walked away. Unbelievable.
