iXS Dagger Knee Pads
Intended for DH and gravity focussed riding. The IXS Dagger Knee Pads were developed with Darren Berrecloth on board so you can be confident in the fact that they have been thoroughly crash tested and put through their paces. They feature a two-component hardshell at the knee for great mobility and comfort, light, breathable, anti-bacterial materials, and a knee gusset to lock the pad in position and distribute impact forces:
- Squeezebox: Patented shell linkage allows for full articulation without sacrificing protection
- Knee Gusset: Internal padding around the patella locks protector in position and distributes impact forces around the knee
- Armadillo Duo: Dual-compound hard shells provide skid and puncture protection while remaining flexible
- Aeromesh: Lightweight and anti-bacterial treated 3D performance mesh, optimized for breathability and moisture wicking
- Silicon stopper
- Weight: 360g (pair)
Sizing Chart: Measure the diameter of your leg above the knee.
- S - 38 - 40cm
- M - 40 - 42cm
- L - 42 - 44cm
- XL - 44 - 46cm

On Your Knees !
by Ian Scott -
I was given these pads as a Christmas pressie and iam absolutely amazed at how comfortable , solid , lightweight and immovable these pads are . I previously owned some old Fox knee/shin pads that made riding an absolute chore . These new IXS Daggers fit me perfectly according to the size chart , are amazingly cool in plus 30 degree weather , stay put where they are meant be , dont rub , and after the first 30 minutes , felt like i was wearing no pads at all . Oh yeah and they are reasonably easy on the wallet too . Highly recommended . The graphics look killer and they look badass on your legs . They also have ample top shin protection for those pedal slips that we all know .
Clunky, chunky and not very hunky

When your knees are running hotter, heavier and chunkier thank your downhill or enduro rig, you really need to consider some of your life choices.
If those life choices don't include listing these knee helmets - then I'm not sure what's wrong... But if your list DOES include them, well...at least we have identified the problem.
Threading your foot through the restricting channel of these knee sleeves, I felt like I was pulling on PVC pipes. With about as much bending comfort too.
I run a size XS in the TLD pull ons (the one most gravity riders tend to wear, you know the ones with extra length in the shin. Yeah, those ones.) And size wise, they are pretty good.
The SMALL in these a damn tight (which is not necessary by design due to the top and lower strap) and about as much fun as pulling off a pair of wet skin tight stretchy jeans at the end of the day.
Your knees will legit cook in these and there's no relief for the furnace building under the aesthetically appeasing exterior until you wrestle it off with the same gusto you would trying to pry a child's favourite toy from their death gripping clutch.
I want to like these. I tried to like these.
Will put them up for sale or keep then as a spare for mate dates
