AlpineStars Vector Pro Knee Pads
Who's this item for: DH, Enduro and aggressive Trail riders who are looking for a high level of knee protection.
Protection Style: The knee pad use a softshell PU guard that is form fitting to your leg while riding. It features an integrated softshell PU guard that strategically covers the knee area. The entire protective guard is covered in a durable aramidic fiber to protect against abrasion and impacts. The overall snug fit offers great soft tissue support.
Materials: The main body of the knee pad is constructed from breathable laminated rip-stop, PE foam and polymesh. The back uses a stretch mesh panel for better stability of the knee pad while riding, but is open behind the knee to avoid bunching and chaffing. A silicone print is used on the inner sleeve to prevent the guard from being displaced while riding (or crashing).
Closure or Slip-on: Slip the knee pads on, then use the hook and loop straps located at the top and middle of the pad to ensure a precise fit.
Length of knee pad: The Vector Pro Knee Pads cover from above the knee, into the top of the shin.
Protection level: High. These knee pads are CE certified to EN 1621_1 : 2012 LEVEL 1
Removable protective inserts for washing: No.
Pros: High level of protection that can still be pedalled in.
Cons: Limited size range.
Note: Please take care as to not pull the knee pads up your leg from the top of the pads as you would a pair of socks. The material is not designed for this and may cause tears. Damage to the knee pads of this nature may not be covered by the manufacturer warranty. We recommend pulling up knee pads from the top and bottom of the pad with care, in a way that avoids stretching the mesh or damaging the stitching.

My grandson is thrilled with his new knee pads. Fit perfectly and gives great protection. He buys all his gear for his bike from Mtb.
OK on sale, but consider Fox Launch Pro instead
Great quality materials. They not as form-fitting as the Fox Launch Pro which is pre-curved to exactly the right size so it is much more comfortable and fits "like a glove". Acceptable price on sale, but not at full price. Sorry Alpinestars, love most of your stuff but just not your pads.
