    Another Knee pads recommendation thread !?!?
    So i have been reading and doing some searching here , deff lot of mixed reviews which is making this a but tough for me lol . Anything that is from the company 661 i dont want to purchase as i have seen their products go to sh*t unless they have now fixed their issues?

    I have been looking at this website to make a purchase , just trying to figure out which are good ? What would best fit my needs you guys think? I would like to wear these year round as well .

    I also am trying to decide on which to get. I also noticed a lot of XC riders dont' wear them which really surprises me given the risk involved with this sport. I personally don't see the difference in danger with this compared to even MX (motocross), but that's my opinion.

    I would like to find something that is light, has good ventilation, and not to obtrusive too riding.

    I was checking out the sixsixone Evo Lite XC knee pads:

    i wore 661 ks pads for a while. great pads, didnt slip, werent too bulky, didnt hinder pedaling. nukeproof has some pads coming out that look real nice.
