Lightweight knee pads don’t get any better than these.
Troy Lee Designs Knee/Shin Guard KG 5450
Arguably the least catchy name for a set of knee/shin pads, but who cares when they are this good. If you’re after a set of pads for trail or enduro riding then you’ll love these. Whilst there might not be quite enough protection for DH duties they still offer a decent level, especially when you consider how minimalist they feel when on. They weigh next to nothing and are supremely comfortable. Normally for comfort reasons we tend to just wear knee pads and forget about our poor shins, but somehow this knee/shin version feels even better to wear than the knee only version, and we’re not going to grumble about the extra protection. If you’re thinking of getting some just make sure you try some on first because the lack of any straps means that correct sizing is crucial.
