Forget the struggle with bulky pads! The Slayer Knee pads from Dakine are so 'free' feeling, you might forget you're even wearing them! With a 4-way stretch mesh backing and ergonomic fit, the Slayers will ensure you stay comfortable throughout the entire ride. Most importantly, the CE-certified foam padding, 4-way stretch mesh, and abrasion-resistant cover ensure you are protected and keep the pads sitting where you need them.

Who's this item for: Any type of rider looking for effective, low-profile knee protection that they can pedal around in all day long.

Protection Style: These are an open back, slip-on style pad with a 4-way stretch construction to keep them in place. There are no Velcro straps on these pads so make sure you get the sizing right. 

Materials

  • Shell: Ariaprene Pro 4-way stretch fabric with Aramid fibre abrasion resistance.
  • Mesh back: 75% polyester, 25% nylon 
  • Insert: CE Certified polyurethane impact foam

Closure or Slip-on: These are a slip-on style pad so there are no straps or anything like that.

Length of knee pad: The dimensions aren't stated by Dakine but the pads will extend a couple of inches above the knee and cover the knee and part of the shin.

Protection level: Light - Moderate protection level CE Certified EN 1621-1 Level 1

Removable protective inserts for washing: No, the inserts are not removable for washing

Pros: A low-profile pad that is comfortable enough to pedal around in all day and offers enough protection to keep your knees intact for pretty much any type of riding.

Cons: You'll have to make sure that you get the sizing right so that the pads stay in place and won't need to be readjusted all the time.

Good value and comfortable

by

Great pads, very comfortable, they stay up well, good value for money and the added bonus is that they are blue and black and so is my bike :)

Great Pads

by

5 stars . Good vertical protection (they sit high above and below your knee). Super comfortable. Most important questions: are the comfortable and do they work in a crash? I've had mine 2 years, super comfortable for me, dont even know they are on. I've had 2 big OTB crashes and one other big crash (tore my AC shoulder) whilst jumping. Was wearing these knee pads and same dakine elbow pads. No injuries to knees or elbows and pads not damaged either. After 2+years both my elbows and knee pads are now a bit loose fitting at the top of the elastic (how long they last I guess depends on how often you ride). I will most likely buy another set of these. I'm 178cm and 70 kgs. Bought the M in Elbows and L in knee - they both fit firm when I bought them, but I would most likely pick M elbow and M knee the next purchase.

Excellent knee pad, size fitted well. Stays on without slippage. Good extended coverage to the shins. No knee gap even with shorter mtb shorts that have 12 inch inseam. I have had one crash with these which was unfortunate but these protected knees with perfectly and there was no damage what so ever to the knee guard.

Comfortable and protective

The Dakine Slayer is a snug fit, the cupped knee protection means that it hugs the knee and doesn't move. The ventilation is good and the pads do not inhibit pedalling. Occasionally the top thigh sleeve slides down marginally, however the padded section is not impacted by this and does not move. The materials are sturdy and don't scuff or tear. These a more protective than the TLD speed / Fox Enduro knee sleeve but still not a full DH knee pad - great middle option.

Dakine Slayer Knee pad Review

by -

After having owned and used a pair of these knee pads, it is clear to say that these knee pads top the brands such as Fox and TLD. I have had 2 crashes whilst wearing these knee pads and its safe to say that my knees are intact without any damage. They did their job without damaging the pads and my knees. 11/10 would 100% recommend again and will be copping another pair as soon as i can!
