    well just tried on a pair of 661 race knee/shin gaurds. it felt good and it had one of those top slid in, reinforce with a velcro strap. I think those are the ones that I am planning to get. I still wanna try other brand first so I can compare them.

    they are ok, get roaches insted, my friend has thoes and they are awesome, the races pretty much suck, they are kinda comfortable at first, but after a while the middle velco strap stops sticking, and the back of the knee rubs, get roaches or fox launchs

    I like the Roach/Raceface also. The Roach RallyFR are great for freeriding, comfortable when pedaling and don't fall down. They can also take big impacts well. The Roach RallyDH has thicker foam and a knee stabilization pad. The DH Roach is a little more restrictive when pedaling but the straps are secured better to the hardshell than the FR Roach.

    SixSixOnes definitely arent the best but if you want to try them out you can usually find a pair on E-bay for like 10 bucks. Get 'em and if you dont like them its only 10 bucks and keep them as a spare set or give them to a buddy thats just starting out and get the Roaches.
    you like dags??
