Editor here at off-road.cc, Rachael is happiest on two wheels. Partial to a race or two Rachael also likes getting out into the hills with a big bunch of mates. In the past Rachael has written for publications such as, Enduro Mountain Bike Magazine, Mountain Biking UK, Bike Radar, New Zealand Mountain Biker and was also the online editor for Spoke magazine in New Zealand too. For as long as she's been riding, she has been equally happy getting stuck into a kit review as she is creating stories or doing the site admin. When she's not busy with all the above she's roasting coffee or coaching mountain biking in the Forest of Dean.

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?
