Fox Launch Pro Knee Pads
We can't tell you how annoying it is to have knee pads slip down while riding! The Launch Pro pads feature an ergonomic fit and wrap-around straps to ensure that these pads stay securely in place.
The 2019 Fox Launch Pro Knees have had a full redesign to allow you to push even harder and get even rowdier on your favourite aggressive trails. Being a a slip on guard, the Launch Pro's rely on hook and loop fasteners to dial in the perfect fit. They offer plenty of protection with level 1 CE Certification, and feature a pre-curved ergonomic fit. The neoprene is perforated for extra breathability.
These are amazing for gravity-fed riding however, we wouldn't recommend these for trail riding since they are definitely overbuilt for dedicated DH use. The Fox Launch Enduro knee pads would be a better choice for trail riders.
- Perforated neoprene for comfort and breathability.
- Kevlar fabric reinforced knee cup.
- Ergonomic fit specifically designed for pedalling.
- Wrap-around strap keeps the pad securely in place.
- Sold as a pair.
Top Strap: 37 - 40.5 cm

To determine correct size, measure around your thigh directly above your knee and the thickest part of your calf. Take measurements on bare skin.
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.

Knee'd I say more!
Yeah these are dope! so comfortable even on long rides, I'm 183cm 82kgs and I'm in between sizes but ultimately I went for the medium as they will stretch a little in my opinion it's better to have a tighter fit than a looser fit. PLUS with the clever packaging from FOX the plastic cutout can be used as a mudguard
Great knee pad, and the packaging is a Fox mudguard!
These pads are very nicely made and the knee cup extends a little further down the shin than I had expected, and that's a good thing. I also have a pair of the Fox Launch Enduro knee pads, and the sizing is consistent between the two, Medium in both. The pads stay in place well, and I haven't had them move even while doing trail rides.
Also a really awesome surprise was the packaging - there is a template on it to cut the plastic into the shape of a mudguard, with pre-drilled holes and Fox logos! Which is awesome as I needed a mudgaurd for my XC machine anyway. The mudguard is double-sided, black with white logos on one side, gunmetal with dark grey logos on the other side, awesome little bonus.
Love the Knee Pads!
by Teresa L. -
Overall they are really high quality. I love the way they bend and move with your knee yet stay really supportive. They are also really protective, yet they are lightweight so you barely notice them on at all. I ride better with them and feel more confident riding over the really rough terrain or over bumps and through tough patches on the track.
Awesome protection- gets a little hot
by David M. -
These things feel very secure and have loads of padding. I haven't had a decent crash with them on yet touch wood, however I'd be 100% confident that my knees would not be very damaged. Definitely not the best option for longer trail rides but for short rides with nasty decents or shutting these things are awesome!
Very good product. Feels like
by Anton -
Very good product. Feels like it will protect well in the event of a crash. I'm 75kg and approx 183cm tall and size s/m fits me well. In the negative column they become very hot very quickly when pedaling however this is understandable and won't stop me taking these on rides. Confidence inspiring.
Awesome kneepads. Have been using
by Damo -
Awesome kneepads. Have been using these for a few months now. They're comfortable and bend where you need them to so they're not noticeable when pedalling. I'm 6ft but with skinny legs and size S/M fits great.
