Description

Using the outstanding Transition knee pad as the base platform, the Sam Hill edition adds extra protection around the main insert to step the protection level of these pads up a notch. Just the thing Sam Hill needs to protect him from the things he finds on the inside line of corners such as rocks, trees, spectators, and oblivious photographers.

The Seven 7 iDP Sam Hill Knee Pad is the ultimate in lightweight, pedal all day knee protection. The pads feature a slip-on design with a compression fit and a Sas-Tec preformed protective foam insert that moulds to the shape of your knees for a perfect fit. Extra padding around the main knee cap provides increased protection and works to further stabilise and support the pad. The top hem extends higher up the thigh than most knee pads and uses an internal silicone strip to keep them from slipping down. The breathable mesh back panel helps keep you cool, and the design of the pads allows for complete freedom of movement without any friction or discomfort. These are truly a fit and forget piece of kit and once you (carefully!) pull them on you'll almost forget you're wearing them. 

Who's this item for: These pads are perfect for general Trail riding and hardcore Enduro racing. The lightweight design is very pedal friendly but can also be relied upon to protect your knees and stay in place during those inevitable crashes. 

Protection Style: The Sas-Tec protective pad is made from a dense heat moulding foam that conforms to the shape of your knee for a perfect fit without any pressure points or rubbing. The extra padding around the knee cap provides extra protection against side impacts.

Materials: Polyester and Spandex blend with 4-way stretch mesh panels.

Closure or Slip-on: These are slip-on pads with a compression fit. It's critical to get the sizing right with these so you might need to try on a couple of different sizes to find the perfect fit.

Length of knee pad: The upper elastic hem sits fairly high up on your thigh, about equal to where most cycling knicks would finish. The lower elastic hem extends to midway down the shin.

Weight: 340g (size L)

Protection level: These pads offer light to moderate protection and exceed the CE EN 1621-1:2012 Level 2 standards. 

Removable protective inserts for washing: Yes, the insert on the Sam Hill pads is removable for washing.

Pros: Super comfy, protective and lightweight, pedal all day pads that can be relied upon to stay in place when you crash. Rumour has it that these pads will help you ride sketchy inside lines just that little bit better.

Cons: These pads rely upon a close compression fit to work properly, and there aren't any straps to make small adjustments. It's critical to get the sizing right with these so you might need to try on a couple of different sizes to find the perfect fit.

Note: Please take care to not pull the knee pads up your leg from the top of the pads as you would a pair of socks. The material is not designed for this and may cause tears. Damage to the knee pads of this nature may not be covered by the manufacturer warranty. We recommend pulling up knee pads from the top and bottom of the pad with care, in a way that avoids stretching the mesh or damaging the stitching.

I have been looking for the perfect knee pads for a while now and finally I think I have hit the jackpot. These knee pads offer a heap of protection without compromising on comfort and fit. I used the size chart which put me in a medium and these are spot on. I was a little worried about ventilation and over heating as the pads are pretty well padded. My worries were misplaced as a 50km ride on a pretty warm day did not raise an issue. Great pads totally recommend them 😊

For anyone who has bigger legs, especially thighs, you'll find that the long sleeve (they go right up under your knicks) ensure they stay where you put them. The pads offer enough protection for enduro/downhill without being uncomfortable for pedalling. I use them for all types of riding. They don't make my legs noticeably hot. Great product and I've tried a lot of others. I would prefer an all black version as I'm not keen on the blue logo.
