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.
