Not for cold climate applications
January 18, 2016
Ashley Thomas from Fresh Meadows, NY United States
I am a certified snowboarding instructor. I have several Demon XD3O items (2 protective tops, 1 protective pant, 2 wrist guards) as well as these knee/shin guards. What I have noticed is that this material does not hold up well in cold weather. On impact the xd30 is to stiffen and absorb the shock. In cold temps the xd30 cracks. Pertaining to these knee/shin guards specificly, the portion of xd30 that covers the knee cap has cracked on both knees. I just purchased them this summer for winter riding, and they only lasted 3 outings.... they are comfortable, but not made for cold weather use.
