    Moto pants with knee guards?

    Hey, does anyone who rides with moto pants/dh pants wear their knee/shin protection under?
    I just got some really nice oneal pants, but my Kali guards don't fit comfortably under and I don't really want to ride without any.

    Half of the MX pants out there are designed to be used with full orthopedic knee braces, and the other half aren't. You really need to show up at a shop with your braces or knee/shin guards and try them on to find out. If you've ever read Motocross Action magazine, the fit with knee braces is one of the first things they tell you in any pant review they do.

    Cool thanks for the info. I just talked to someone from Oneal about this. They use moto knee braces under the same pants I have. I guess as a moto rider your probably not moving and bending your knees as much as you are on a dh bike right? Maybe I will just get them hemmed into shorts and not worry about it.

    Probably not moving the leg, but I can only imagine the damage done to moto riders knee's. A lot of them where mechanical braces, not knee pads, to support they're knees.

    Dunno, about MX pants, but I have Raceface DH pants and I've worn them with both Rockgardn and POC knee/shin guards (their beefiest ones) without problems. Sorry not much help for ya.
