Buyer’s guide to mountain bike knee pads

Author block

Rachael is happiest on two wheels, she's been riding bikes for a good few years now after horses got too expensive! Partial to a race or two Rachael also likes getting out into the hills with a big bunch of mates. She's been writing for a long as she's been riding and is equally happy getting stuck into a kit review as she is creating stories.

Hi, luckily for us Editor Jon is testing a new pair of the 661 Recon's so it will be interesting to see what he thinks once he's given them a proper going over. I don't know of anybody offering demo options but most shops should be happy for you to try before you buy, although I know walking around the shop isn't the same as grinding up a hill! There will be a 'Best of Knee Pads' feature to follow in the coming months which will involve a variety of brands and types of pads, keep an eye on the site and on Facebook Smile

 

I had an early set of 661 back that spent most of the time keeping my ankles warm and getting chewed by the chainring. I definitely need to buy some new ones but how do i know which ones will stay put and not ruck up behind my knee's. Are there any demo options Rachael? Will there be a review of the best options coming?
