Race Face Dig 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 medium protection pad, designed mostly for gravity style riding but they should be OK for a bit of pedalling. Best suited to AM, Enduro, and DH.
Protection Style: The pads utilise a semi-hard foam knee cup that is stiff enough to protect your knee yet compliant enough to make them comfortable to move around in.
Materials: Perforated neoprene outer, terry lined for sweat-wicking and comfort. Mesh panel on the rear to assist with ventilation.
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 a couple of inches down the shin and a couple of inches above the knee.
Protection level: Medium Level Protection.
Removable protective inserts for washing: The protective inserts aren't removable.
Pros: Great level of protection. Able to be put on and taken off without removing your shoes.
Cons: Only one colour available. Only uses fairly basic material for the padding.
