Thread: Knee Pads?

  1. #1

    Default Knee Pads?

    I banged my right knee up pretty good last session. I feel weird skating right now since its still healing so it's making me a lil headshy to do stuff. I never could stand the feel of bulky ass knee pads on me while I skated. Has anyone tried some of those knee gaskets Like these?

    Are those really that much better then some heavy duty under armour volleyball/baseball knee pads at big 5 for 20$ bucks? Seriously thinking about pickin some up today so I'm more comfortable skating until its all healed up.

    IMO- They are a great knee pad. They still will fit under loose jeans and provide great protection. I slammed my knee on a square rail and have not felt a thing. They aren't as small as the volleyball knee pads you can get at wal-mart or whereever but I don't think they are bulky.

    I think they suck. They protect you from scratches or cuts, but that's it. They have little impact protection. Having a plastic cap with thin padding is more protective than a capless design with lots of padding because the plastic spreads the impact over a larger area. If you want something slim that won't tear up your pants the first time you fall, get a pair of these

    They're similar to the Triple 8's, but they have a plastic cap inside the pad

    i ride those exact triple8 pads and i have to agree in part with Gonzalo.
    I dont think they suck. they do provide a protection for hits but they arnt the best and if you go to a volleyball pad that will be even worse.
    i will be purchasing those protec ones SOON.

    They are amazing. Nice and flexible, but have saved my knees from serious damage.

    dont skate while your knee hurts in the first place, its not like when your wrist hurts and you can tape that shit up and go out, your knee if going to be a vital part of skating for the rest of your life so waiting until it fully heals is worth the time

    i wear volleyball kneepads. i'm not real concerned about impact injuries, i'm more interested in protecting my knees from getting scraped up and restricting my range of motion

    they work great for those two purposes, and they are slim enough that i forget i am wearing them

    get some oldschool rector knee pads and wear them them on the outside of your pants like your fourty and ride a fat ass skateboard in pools all day bitching about how wax fucks everything up.
