Description

 
Size Knee circumference
Junior 30-35cm
Small 35-41cm
Medium 41-45cm
Large 45-49cm

Long length knee pads that extend down to protect part of the shin. A streamlined fit with a silicon rubber elastic webbing strip at the top band and above the calf maintains the position of the knee pads, whilst an additional elastic strap is positioned just below the knee to further secure the pad in place. Comfort is enhanced through stretch panels around the main knee panel to allow stretch where you need it the most and improved movement, with a breathable mesh panel down the back to add breathability to the back of your leg. Durability and protection has been achieved to follow in our ‘Race Armour’ range, with the use of Duratex II at the outer surface and NBR rubber used on the inside – this has minimal water absorption so weight will not be added to the pads when wet, the properties of the rubber also mean that the pad will mould to your body slightly and also adds some shock absorption for those falls!

Features

- Integrated silicon webbing in top band and behind calf to secure position
- Breathable panel behind knee
- Contoured panel layout for improved movement
- Elastic Velcro strap
- Race Armour pre-shaped foam inner pad - dual layered around knee cap
Materials

- Heavy Duty Nylon Spandex
- Neoprene
- Duratex II

A gnat’s whisker short of perfect

Without going into unnecessary detail as to why, I rest on my (very sensitive) knees quite a lot when sailing. Before I got these knee pads I was only able to do this for long by wearing a long-leg wetsuit with 2 extra layers of 3mm neoprene stuffed inside the legs (total 9mm!). With these knee pads I get no knee pains at all even when wearing shorts. They are flexible enough not to restrict movement. Nearly perfect because in an energetic sailing session they can drop down the leg a little, although not enough to expose my kneecaps. The elastic fixing straps could possibly be a tad less elastic, to keep them in place a bit better, that’s all. But still well worth my 5 stars for comfort and effectiveness. I have not had them long enough to be able to comment on their robustness, but they do appear to be tough, and well put together.

Race Armour knee pads

For me they are perfect, these knee pads are the first ones I have used that actually stay put and support as well as protecting the knee.

One of my better purchases as far as racing a Blaze dinghy goes.

Spot On!

Work really well

I did wonder about spending this much on a pair of knee pads but as a disabled dinghy sailor our dinghy is adapted for me to sail kneeling so I am continually moving from hiking to crossing the boat on my knees. These protect my knees and also stay on my knees which previous knee pads do not. They are also comfortable for prolonged kneeling in light winds

Perfect coverage!

They protect your knees and front legs with great efficiency. Tested only in strong wind so far, so excellent results!

If you wear the hiking pads, sometimes they slip down the leg, but they still cover your knees greatly

Rooster knee protectors

I've now worn them twice and they are amazing. My poor knees are no longer sore!
