    volleyball pads as knee pads?

    Can't find anything in local bike shops that I like for knee protection. Just want something for the knees, not too restrictive, don't even need a hard pad. I can order sixsixone, evs, tld stuff at work at cost, but I can't try it on without ordering it and my boss kinda frowns upon returning special orders. Picked up some under armour volley ball pads at Dick's sporting goods and they feel pretty good but thought I might get some other suggestions before I go ride with them and can't return them. ideas?

    Ride without pads or purchase riding specific pads.

    You're welcome.

    Make your best guess at the right fit and order some real pads. If they don't fit you can sell your brand new pads on craigslist esp. since you bought them cheap, although its possible you won't get every penny back

    I used to play B-level VBall.

    VBall pads are potentially the worst option for knee protection out there for trail protection. you would be better off riding without any pad at all.
