Knee Pads
#1
Guy after todays stacks in Surrey i need to get some knee pads. I'm sitting here now smothered in Volterol Gel hoping I can walk in the morning.

I know you all wear the 661 pads but what are they called and where is the cheapest place to get them? I'm going to ditch the shin pads as they are bulky and i've nerver actually damaged my shins in any falls.

Cheers,

Ash.

Kyle straits are indeed what you need and you will need them for afan! Get them and wear them to parties.

Check the sizes on the 661 site you may possbly are a medium.

Don't get the silly expensive ones with clever gel stuff in, just get the standard ones

Cheers guys, I've had a look the Karl straits certainly seem to be the best priced, about £35, i wouldnt pay £75 for the next ones up!!  Undecided

Oh and Ben - I needed them today!!

Mine are xl so useless for you to try, but they are so snug after about 30mins you don't know you're wearing them.

Saved my kneecaps on last trip to afan when I was dispatched on a rocky section.

Ashley.....   how you doing this morning....  looked lke you enjoyed the ride yesterday and a big slap on the back for riding the drops and doing the jump....

As for the pads you will need to either try some on or have a measure up.... my legs are 38cm below the knee and 45cms above and i wear a large which fit perfectly...

As mentioned if you click the Wiggle banner on the forum then te forum will benefit by a couple of quid or so....
