    Are there any knee/shin pads that are slip proof??

    Hi all,

    I am wondering if there is such a thing as slip-proof Knee/Shin pads?

    I have owned a few pairs of Knee/shin pads. The latest pair which are
    Fox Launch (I belive that is the correct model) do slip and have to adjust
    them whenever I go downhill.

    I would appreciate your input/suggestions.

    Thanks

    Yes, but.

    It really comes down to how they fit you, and that's almost impossible to tell without trying them. Soft pads are more variable in fit than hard DH pads, IMO. You can read a bunch of magazine or Internet reviews, but the shape/size of your legs may be different than the reviewer's.

    I'm using the Fox Launch and I have never had a problem with slipping. They are great.
