Race Face Ambush Knee Guard
Who's this item for: These pads are for anyone that feels like they are stepping out of their comfort zone and want something to protect them if things go south. They are a heavy-duty pad, designed for the gravity side of things and would be best suited to AM, Enduro, and DH riding.
Protection Style: The pads utilise D30 padding which is a visco-elastic foam. In English, that means that the foam is soft and compliant, but stiffens up under impact to provide a great balance of comfort and protection.
Materials: D30 Protective foam padding, perforated neoprene outer, terry lined for sweat-wicking and comfort.
Closure or Slip-on: These pads have an open-back construction so you can put them on without removing your shoes. Adjustable elastic upper and lower straps allow you to dial in the fit.
Length of knee pad: These pads cover partway down the shin and a couple of inches above the knee.
Protection level: Heavy Duty Protection.
Removable protective inserts for washing: The protective inserts aren't removable.
Pros: Great level of protection. D30 Padding. Can put them on and take them off without removing your shoes.
Cons: Only one colour available. A bit too much pad for general trail riding.
