So, after a full season on them plus a few trips biking they are still in mint condition. All the stitching etc...is perfectly intact and on me at least they stay where I put them even after hours of riding. Yes, you do feel the impact but even with hard shell pads you feel something. For the comfort and range of motion these offer the protection is more than adequate. Even saved my knees when I hit a patch of black ice walking back to the car.

Another quick update. Used them for longboarding today. Fit fine under my jeans. Took one small roll into the grass but didn't notice if I had hit my knee, landed more on my side than anything. As far as comfort there was no issue with them bunching or interfering with pushing. It was in the mid 70s and while I knew I had them on there weren't near as hot as a pair of hardshell or even volleyball style pads would have been.

UPDATE TOO! i have been wearing this for a few days now at work and one bad thing i can say about it is.. the rubber part that keeps it from sliding down has bruised up my left thigh about 3-4 inches above my knee.I do have the right size cuz i measured my leg as instructed before ordering(x-large).to relieve it from the bruise, i had to place it lower(much closer to my knee).not sure why it bruised my leg, but my right leg is just fine.though my left knee pad is not as centered as i would like it to be,its' still comfortable.

I'm considering these for snowboarding just wondering about when these harden up reason I'm asking because from my experience I do fall right on my knees when landings don't turn out how I would like so for situations like that I can see these hardening up like they demonstrate but what about when you really laying down a turn out breaking super hard my knees make soft contact with the snow then pressure is applied if that makes sense just wondering do these need direct impact to engage or when pressure in put on them in general cause them to engage?

G-Form's material is impact reactive. When there is an impact they turn the energy from that impact into heat which, in turn, causes the material to change it's molecular structure and harden. Then they soften right back up. It happens so fast you never realize it. But that is when and how they provide the protection. They absorb the initial impact rather than your body. They provide very minimal protection if you are kneeling down or grazing the ground with your knee. Then you are left with just the thickness of the pad for protection. They are designed specifically to protect you from impact, that is all.
