    Ultimate Knee/Shin Guard on the market today? (Replace POC Bone VPD Leg)

    What out there comes close to the POC Bone VPD Leg?

    This is for lift served DH (I have TLD KGL 5450 for pedaling).

    Protection Priorities:
    1. Knee super bomber
    2. Stays in place in crash
    3. Stays in place while riding
    4. Top of Shin
    5. Sides/top of knee
    6. Lower Shin
    7. Back of leg (if possible)

    POC Bone VPD did all that... well sometimes spotty on staying in place... willing to consider knee+shin.
    Lacerations through intact armor are a mark of talent... or stupid... or both...

    I ride IXS Dagger. they make the IXS Cleaver which is a full length shin pad. but I wear these for 2000' climbs to bike park dh days. wrecked so many times and should have needed many stitches and more I'm sure if it wernt for them doing such an amazing job

    measure urself per their recommended chart. I was right in the middle for mediums. got them and tried to put them on. I was mad and thought I ordered too small. double checked measurements and said eff it, not waiting on shipping, just forced them back on and went for it and glad I did!

    the main material/mesh/back seemed to break in quickly and stretched to "just right". this was last year and they are still just right. Velcro straps are holding up great and they only have one tear on the top above the hardshell from OTB and putting shifter components into the top of my thigh(the tear and scar in my pad line up nice, I always know which one is what lol)

    these pads knock everything u want out of the park but back of leg. and there is an easy fix for that. Fly Racing Kinetic MTB pants. or any pants really.
