    Do Roach FR knee's have liners?

    Do the Roach FR knee pads have liners / socks / mesh whatever you call it ? My 02' Dainese have an upper sock that keeps the velcro from digging in the leg. Too much slippage has made me think about a new set of pads. The Roach's seem to review well any other pads have liners ? Thanx

    No liners, but I've crashed ALOT on mine and they haven't slipped on me yet. Don't know why, maybe it's the contour of them, they just don't move around like alot of them. Good Luck

    Every picture I have seen (sales ads) shows a front view only... but as the previos poster mentioned just the DH's have mesh. Any reason not to use the DH model for FR light DH ?

    To me, the DH fit and felt way different than the FR. The DH feels bulky and uncomfortable, whereas I don't even know I have the FR on. They fit like a glove. Just my opinion though.

    Here's a look at the back of the FR

    I completely agree with Dave on this one. FR's have been flawless for me for past 18months, and show no signs of wearing out. Roach just nailed it with this design....

    The DH rock...never slide, always where they should be...little rough when thier new, but after you break them in, they feel great.
