Rockgardn Sports has just announced the release of their newest kneeguard, the NEO.

"We wanted the NEO to meet some pretty stringent standards" said Mark Carlton, Rockgardn's president. "It needed to be tough without sacrificing comfort and range of motion, and it had to be super stable on the leg during a crash".

The NEO features a rigid internal knee cap with multiple layers of foam, with an outer impact layer made of Kevlar. "In order to use rigid plastic underneath, you have to have a really tough outer layer" said Carlton. "Even though the Kevlar fabric is crazy expensive, we think it's the best choice out there".

The 2011 NEOs are sold in pairs, sizes S, M, L and XL. MSRP is $69.95.
