Imagine that your body is a temple. Now imagine that you want to take that temple on the road. You need to protect it! It’s a temple, after all! Knee pads are for all sorts of sports and athletes of all ages. Whether you’re hopping on a bike, a skateboard, or a scooter, or you’re strapping on some roller skates or blades, you absolutely must protect your knees. The best ones are shock-absorbent, impact-resistant and boo-boo-minimizing!
The lightweight ventilated foam allows for airflow, and adjustable elastic straps are durable and comfortable. BOSNER
The best accompanying accessories for knee pads? Elbow pads, hand pads, and a helmet. Especially for the kiddos, you quite literally cannot be too careful. Look for shock absorbing PVC coating on the outside, and moisture-wicking ventilated foam on the inside.
This impact-resistant trio in loads of hues doesn’t just preserve your patellas, it comes with everything else you need to ensure a safe ride down a ramp, on the sand or anywhere else you may glide.
Proper fit is key to making sure your gear actually protects you, so make sure to consult the measurement guide before you buy. Knee pads that are too loose won’t work properly, and ones that are too tight will be uncomfortable and distracting. You should still be able to have full range of motion while staying protected.
Just pull on these babies and you’re ready to roll! They’re ergonomic, lightweight, and extra grippy.
Not all knee pads are created equal. Think about what feels good on your skin and bod: Do you like a soft pull-on style (like the ones you may have worn during high school volleyball)? Or do you like something with harder pieces, to provide extra heavy-duty protection?
