Description

The K-Pact Knee Pads have been in Ion's line up for quite a few years now. They have seen some minor revisions over the last few years, mainly in the breathability department. Most of the knee pad remains unchanged- which isn't a bad thing. The K-Pact Knee Pad has been a top performer since it's inception. Comfy enough to pedal in but sturdy enough to bomb DH tracks with. Awesome.

Who's this item for? This knee pads is a great option for DH, Enduro and aggressive Trail riders.  It's comfy enough to put in big shifts on the pedals and provides enough protection to keep you safe if you do take a soil sample.

Protection Style? The Ion K-Pact Knee Pads are a impact resistant foam style protection. The key to their high protection levels are due to a very clever material called SAS-TEC. SAS-TEC's 3D-protectors are made of visco elastic soft foam that offer incredible shock absorption values. They are multi-impact compliant, adapt to body contours and are heat resistant. There is also asymmetrical lightweight EVA side padding for protection from other odd impacts and top-tube contacts.

Materials? The K-Pact Knee Pad features a new, very breathable sleeve material: the Super_Perforator_Neoprene provides maximum breathability even on long uphills. The neoprene sleeve is very flexible and conforms to the shape of your knee. The knee caps are covered in Power_Aramid, which is a material originally designed by DuPont. This material offers outstanding tear resistance and tensile strength. For those that like to know the finer construction details: 35% Neoprene, 35% Polyurethane, 15% Nylon, 8% Polyester and 7% EVA

Closure or Slip-on? These are a 'slip-on' style knee pad with Velcro straps at the top and bottom of the pads that are used to adjust the fit. There's also a strip of silicone inside to help keep them from sliding down. There is a nice section of mesh material right at the back of the knee to help with temperature control.

Length of knee pad? The Ion K-Pact Knee Pads fit from above knee to the top of the shin.  

Removable protective inserts for washing? Yes,  the SAS-TECH protective inserts are removable for washing purposes.  

Pros? Comfortable enough to pedal all day in but protective enough for DH use. Win! Win!

Cons? If your body naturally runs at similar temps to a pizza oven you may find these knee pads a bit warm. They do breath much better than they used to but anyway you look at it comfy neoprene is warmer than mesh material. 

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.

Comfortable and good protection.

by

I bought K-pact about 3years ago and loved it. I just got another one.
Best knee pads for me. Good protection and very comfortable.
I won’t ride without it.
Highly recommend.

Awesome pads

by

After countless research on comfy and safe pads, i came across these. Great protection and great price as well

One of, if not the best pads on the market.

by

Really good pads, best ive owned and much better than the TLD Raids, POC and G Form pads. The longevity has been amazing and after 3 seasons they are ready for replacement. They stay in place really well and haven't slipped down in any crashes I've had. Good side protection and the only complaint i have is that if I used them without washing the dirt from the previous ride would cause my knee to rub on the inside of the pad and would rub me raw.

Great Knee Guards

XL is the way to go if you have big legs and calf muscles and you measure in at L, yes they are warm on a hot day but so are jerseys so if you want protection this is the way to go, also the protection they offer make you ride harder and faster!!

Quality

by

I have several ION products, they are all of high quality. The knee pads are sturdy and very comfortable even after riding for some hours. Glad I chose these.

Awesome pad but definitely warm to ride in

by

Very happy with my purchase. I normally run a large in pad size so I ordered a large and they fit spot on. Very comfortable with absolutely no slippage when riding. They are a bit more burly then I'm used as I've come from Dainese trail skins 2 (I was a size large in these also) so they feel a little warm. Come summer I reckon they'll be pretty sweaty. Once you put them on they just feel like a really solid knee pad with no more further adjustments required ... awesome!
