    knee/shin pad reco's

    I've got fox ones that criss cross behind my knee and THEY SUCK. How freaking irritating can pads be????

    Anyhow, I'm looking for a recommendation for pads that aren't too bad for pedaling.

    Tanx!

    Dainese Revolutions are the best I've seen. Have been using them for the past few years. Light, extremely breathable, very comfortable, quick-disconnect clips on the straps.

    if you have chicken legs, not log legs, don't get rockgardn. there heavy duty and breathe well but they slide down on skinny legs. The fox ones are good if they are broken in, but dont offer as much protection as the other ones.

    Which ones offer the best overall impact protection?
