Strength:

super strong

Weakness:

slide down

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.

Strength:

saves your skin,holds firm

Weakness:

hot climates make them wet, get hot when peddeling up hill

I,ve had them for a while now and i can say i wear them most of the time. They have really given me courage to take drops,jumps and lines that i would have never thought of before. A few months back i flew over the bars,through a bush and hit a rock i didn't see and 'snap' the knee pad broke in two. I weight 225 and it was a really hard hit. It was a good thing i was wearing these pads or my knee cap would have shaddered. Anyway i took the pads back and they replaced them for free(sweet). I think there great.

the forearm ones are sweet to.

Strength:

Looks good
breathe able
Comfortable
dont slip down
covers around the leg as well as the shin

Weakness:

Price?

These are a big improvment of any fox kneeguards, these are breathe able so you can do long rides with them and they are pretty strong, smashed the pedal against them didn't do heaps. Heaps good for any downhiller or freerider and trail riders. Strongly recomend getting them.

Strength:

Looks good, Strong, good protection. FOX!

Weakness:

Nothing really.

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.

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.

Weakness:

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

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.

Strength:

Fits perfectly, simple design, lycra backing won't slip under any coniditions, zipper in back makes it real easy to get on/off, no more bloody, bruised shins after every ride

Weakness:

Gets a little sweaty when it gets a hot

If you're a freerider/downhiller and you're sick of bloody, beat up shins and you don't mind getting a little sweaty, but these......your shins will love you.

The skin and bones on my shins, but these pads work much better
