Great Protection for Your Knees and Shins
December 1, 2015
Anonymous Person from Lake Forest, CA United States
I recently got into mountain biking and am hooked, for sure. Since I'm still "learning", I've crashed a lot and have had my share of banged up knees and shins. So I did some comparison shopping and purchased the Fox Launch Sport Knee pad.
The protection it offers is excellent and wearing it doesn't feel cumbersome. In fact after a few minutes, it doesn't feel like it's on. It certainly has prevented my knees and shins from getting banged up!
While it does offer a thigh strap, to me this is its weakest link. The thigh strap has a limited amount of Velcro that attaches. Consequently after many rides, the elastic portion stretches to where it won't cinch up anymore. Since this has happened to me, the knee protection cap slides down and winds up below my knees.
I still like the protection if offers but wish I'd known about the thigh strap's limitations.
