    Knee pads for hot weather?

    Any recommendations for knee pads for hot weather? I don't want shin guard combo, just knee pads. Should be for hot weather, easy to wash and good for pedaling.

    I have not known anyone to get over heated in these TLD guards. We also have 4 new knee pad models launching in feb 2014, one of them being very all mountain specific, that will compete with these pads https://www.troyleedesigns.com/products/5261-02 Mesh fabric, moisture wicking materials, perforated foam pad inside is cooler than a sheet of solid xmaterial.

    Re: Knee pads for hot weather?

    Got my pads yesterday and went riding today. I completely forgot that I was wearing them until I got home. They do exactly what promised! Light, easy to pedal and not hot.

    I read from somewhere that you should go for bigger size than the size chart suggests. I was just between M and L and ordered L. They are just the right size. If they were any smaller they wouldn't fit so I don't quite know what they were thinking with that size chart. I could probably wear XL as well.

    Thanks again for recommending them. I can't wait to crash my bike now..
