Fox Launch D30 Knee-Shin Guards
Who's this item for: The Launch D30 is for gravity riders that require a high level of protection from their pads. While the main focus is on downhill protection, the anatomically-shaped and asymmetrical design is intended to provide pedal-friendly comfort.
Protection Style: These are a knee-shin soft pad with D30 protective inserts and excellent leg coverage.
Materials: D30 padded inserts handle protection duties while the main bulk of the pads are made from perforated neoprene.
Closure or Slip-on: They are a strap-on pad with hook and loop adjusters on the thigh, calf, and upper ankle.
Length of knee pad: A precise measurement isn't provided but the top of the guard should extend a few inches above the knee and extend all the way down to the ankle to provide full knee and shin coverage.
Protection level: These are CE Certified as providing EN1621-1 Level 1 Protection.
Removable protective inserts for washing: No the inserts on these pads are not removable for washing.
Pros: Excellent protection for the whole lower leg. A great choice for flat pedal riders that keep mincing their shins.
Cons: Due to the extra amount of coverage a knee-shin pad is always going to be a little on the warmer side.
