Soft vs. Hard - Knee Pads
Hey, I was wondering what the thoughts were on hard (plastic) shelled kneepads like the black-diamond telekineses ones as compared to soft (gel-filled/padded) ones like the protec ips or volleyball kneepads? I'm riding on solid ice, rarely ever powder, and I'm afraid of hitting a rail with my knee as well, and was wondering what'd be best for those two situations.
EDIT/P.S./Another Question: Can anyone attest to the difference between the pro-tec gravity and the pro-tec ips? Also, any help with sizing or should I just go to Dick's and try some on?
