It's Troy Lee Designs T-Bone gaurds. I have two pairs of these, a pair of 661 Kyle Straits plus Alpinestar Moab and Race Face Rally knee/shin gaurds but tend to use the T-Bone gaurds all the time. The 661 Kyle Straits are more comfortable and pedal friendly but I prefer the extra security and padding they offer to the 661's plus they do stay put. Both are great pads but the T-Bone's are more hard-core at the expense of a little restriction just depends on what type of trails you ride. Although I've hardly used my 661's my mates use them regulary and they haven't aged well with stiching coming undone and badly ripped yet the T-Bone's still look like new.rdhfreethought said:SDR,
Which kneepads are those? I am looking for some pedal friendly kneepads that still offer protection and have been eyeing the POC Joint stuff (mostly, since I have other POC Bone gear and besides the stiching issues, I like it). It looks like yours didnt move around too much, and have some nice side padding and such. Did they work out well for that kind of racing? Suggestions/recommendations? Thanks, and great shots! Someday maybe.....
I think you're missing the point! I might only have two knees but the great thing is....they still work!shakeyakey said:"It's Troy Lee Designs T-Bone gaurds. I have two pairs of these, a pair of 661 Kyle Straits plus Alpinestar Moab and Race Face Rally knee/shin"
How many knees do you have??!!! haha
I hear you - Horses for courses. Kyle Straits for epics, T-Bones for most things and Moab's / RF Rally for DH/FR especially when using flat pedals with big pins. Plus for a weeks riding at the Mega you really want more than one pair :thumbsup: .norcosam said:I use Dainese Revolutions for xc/trail and Raceface Fr pads for DH/FR.
Theres quite a difference between them,The Dainese are lightweight and cool and the Raceface are massive,Heavy and sweaty but offer more protection.
It's a superb event, a true mountain bike race for all with a great variety of trails and terrain. This was my second time at the Mega and I'm totally hooked so I'll be back again next year for more of the same. If you love riding mountain bikes you'll love riding the Mega course.norcosam said:sdr08- That looks like a fun event,Great pictures and well done for riding it.
