    Anti gaper-gap knee pads?

    I wear bib shorts and knee pads. Yes I know it isn't cool, but have crashed more with baggies hooking them on the saddle than with bibs.

    Any suggestions for knee pads that are longer in the legs that will stay high under shorts, like knee warmers.

    I just saw the Specialized Atlas Knee Pads (

    Any other suggestions like this?

    3/4 length compression leggings as a base layer, then wear whatever kneepads you like. It helps if you know it looks odd but don't really care, and it's better than a fleshy gap.
    Hose me down till the water runs clear.

    I have the Specialized knee pads, love them. Super comfortable for even 30+ mile rides, and no gap. You have to put the knee pad under the bib short though for them to stay up. They're my go to for everything but super aggressive trails or bike parks
