Seven 7 iDP Transition Knee Pads
Who's this item for: These pads are perfect for Trail riding and 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 will conform to the shape of your knee for a perfect fit without any pressure points or rubbing.
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: 272g (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: No, the insert is not removable in the Transition pads.
Pros: Super comfy and lightweight, pedal all day pads that can be relied upon to stay in place when you crash.
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.
Okay, well protected

These are well padded and comfortable, but hard tear holes in back mesh material after one wear.
