The Mountain Bike Body Armour and Protection industry - driven by a heightened awareness of safety and accident prevention on the trails, has in recent years massively increased the design and development of a number of products. One of the most popular products in this category are Mountain Bike Knee Pads. There are so many MTB knee pads on the market today, you are almost guaranteed to find the perfect knee pads for your needs. On this page, you can find our full range of knee pads that you can buy online, and we also look into some of the reasons why you should purchase knee pads.
The main purpose of knee pads is to protect both your knee itself, and the skin on your knees from excess damage in the case of an accident. In doing so, when you fall off your level of protection is greater, and the requirement for you to spend time off your bike recovering is reduced. In days gone by, knee pads were a clumsy and uncomfortable thing to wear - but today they are designed with comfort and protection in mind, alongside a good dose of style.
Breathable knee pads are now the norm, whilst the design of the kneepads remains simple. They are a tube of material with padding on the front, and often the sides. Knee Pads are soft, so they respond well to the movement of peddling your bike. These knee pads stay in place well, and some have longer sleeves attached to them, which allow for greater control and less movement.
Depending on the type of mountain biking you are doing, there are different knee pads available - with downhill mountain biking quite rightly demanding knee pads with the most protection! You can view the complete range across this page, and please do get in touch if you have any questions about the collection.
