    decision: dainese trail skins or 7idp covert knee pads?

    Hi all,

    Been looking for knee pads for a long time,

    Occasionally we hit up some crazy terrain or push a good jump trail and for these days I'm looking for something.

    All of our riding is typically Enduro style in S.Cruz so we got long uphills where comfort is important.

    Any thoughts on the two pads I've narrowed it down to?

    Thanks for the input,

    The coverts, with the hard shell, will give you a touch more protection to head on impact. That being said, I have the Dainese and love them so far. They were a bit stiff/uncomfortable at first, but after 2 rides they kinda conformed to my knee and are great now, used them for a 4 hour ride today in 84 degrees with Alabama humidity and my legs never felt overly hot. One of my big reasons for getting these is that they have some amount of side protection, and I tend to whack the sides of my knees against my top tube when railing turns. Both are great pads though.

    Thanks for the feedback... Im thinking the 7idps as i can throw in th hardshell for the gnarly days.

    Wish I could try on locally but nobody I've called stocks either.

    20 years and I've never worn pads...
