iXS Carve EVO+ knee guard - problem with Xmatter protection foam

Hello!

13 June 2021 bought a new iXS Carve EVO+ Knee Guard – camel.

Everything was fine until last days. The foam became hard. Pads are all the time inside apartment, in normal conditions, but still – hard, if you push on them – it’s just almost like plastic cups.

What can be done about it ? Anyone familiar with that?

Yup, will ask for warranty. If no result - will buy new .. new other brand knee guards. I guess..

Yes, of course washing guards without pads, always.

1.5 yeear is not like few months in my case. ((

Thanx for info!!

P.s. interesting - D3O has the same "issue" or it's better ?..

As for new pair of xmatter pads - yeah, i know I can buy them separately. I meant - i guess I don't want to invest in iXS anymore.. Just tooooo disappointed..

As for d3o - didn't get your point. I was wondering wether d3o foam has the same problem (becoming hardened for good after some time).. )

Sorry for bad english.
