What are the best knee pads

Looking for a set of knee pads. Anyone out there got a brand that REALLY works. Been riding 12 years without them...didn't think I needed them anymore. Boy, did I get the message when I caught a toe edge on the ice last month.

I have these



They're one of the few Pro-Tec products that I don't think is shit. The shin guards stop just before the top of the boot, so the boot actually prevents them from slipping. There's padding under the hard shell, and the shell is removable.


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

Didn't you just post about linking turns? And now you say you've been riding for 12 years?

Nope that was someone else. His two posts are about going from moguls to ice and knee-pads.

I have some triple 8 soft knee pads.
They're pretty comfy and don't slip, which is all I ask.

You may need something harder depending on what you do but they work well for me.

It was him/her. Just trying to figure out if giving beginner advice to someone who's been riding for 12 years was appropriate or not... the statement sounded like, woohoo I learned to link turns (after 12 years of riding?).

Now I read it again and am even more confused. Just stood up and actioned out "turns going to toe side by lowering my left hand as if lowering a bucket"
