Sometimes you want coverage, but you don't full full-on DH pads. POC's Joint VPD Air Knee pads are perfect for rowdy trails where you're pedaling most of the way. The pads use Visco-Elastic Polymer Dough that forms to your body and is flexible when moving, then turns rigid upon impact. They're breathable, stay where they're supposed to and are so light, you don't know they're there. Until you need them.

I don't do downhill riding but wanted good all mountain protection for those "just in case" falls. Bit worried they would irritate me but I barely noticed them on my first ride out, and great peace of mind. Highly recommend. I hope they wash well...but not too concerned.
