Be prepared for unexpected dirt excursions with the Ambush Knee Guard from RaceFace. Featuring D30 high-performance shock-absorbing foam these pads will feel nice and compliant during normal use, but then the magical foam stiffens up under impact to protect your bony bits if the trail tries to jump out at you. The pads are made from perforated neoprene and lined with a terry material for wicking and comfort. The pads feature an open-back construction so you can put them on without removing your shoes, and the top and bottom elastic straps allow you to adjust the fit to accommodate your tree trunk/chicken legs. The sides of the pads have foam protection to protect your knees from the frame or other side impacts.       
                       
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.

Best knee pads ever

by

Amazing knee pads don’t fall down of ride up luckily haven’t tasted the dirt wearing them yet but the hammer test proves strong would recommend to anyone looking for affordable protective knee pads

Good Knee Pads

by

After 8 months of abuse, these knee pads are still holding up perfectly fine, apart from some small tears. In terms of protection, these are amazing, after many OTBs and stacks, these have protected me through it all and kept my knees unscathed. When it comes to comfort and, they are quite comfortable for relatively long days of trail ridng (3-5 hrs) but can get a bit humid in the summer. In terms of ventialtion these are not as ventialted as other knee pads, but for an enduro/DH oriented pad, these are just about as comfortable and comfortable as it gets. The open back design is also a nice touch and allows for the user to wear/remove them with taking off their shoes and is very quick and convenient. Only thing to take note of, is that the sizing is on the smaller side and you may have to size up (I'm normally a size M but for these I had to get L)

Great Knee Pads

by

After a few months of use I can barely fault these pads. They are very comfortable, durable, protective, great value, and versatile. The ability to be put on or taken off without removing your shoes is also a very useful feature. They are a quite warm and look a bit bulky but that is to be expected of a knee pad like this. Overall I definitely recommend these as a great do it all pad for pretty much all types of riding.
