If going big is your steeze, make sure you're protected when you've gone a little "too big" and meet the ground for a reality check. As 7IDP's top-of-the-line knee protector, the Tactic Knee Guard doesn't come up short on features to ensure both your style and safety should you come up short on your next jump. The Curv® cap provides high strength while keeping weight low and flexibility in tact, while its X-Profile design offers a compact profile fit. By using double layer polygon perforated custom foam, air is able to move efficiently throughout the protector, ensuring longer lasting comfort and wearability.
Further optimizing comfort and retention is 7IDP's unique Boa system that provides an even tension throughout the pad with a twist of a dial. Weighing in at a mere 228 grams, it's crazy to think that the Tactic Knee Guard is designed beyond CE EN 1621 safety standards, ensuring maximum protection without expensing comfort, mobility and style.
The Tactic Knee Guard is a minimalistic approach to high-end, pedal friendly knee protection.

I haven't had a chance to put these to a test so this is really a review based on how they got and there material quality.
The quality of the materials send really good. Good stitching, heavy duty where they should be, they just look and feel like a really well made pair of pads. The BOA system works a treat tightening evenly and gives a better fit than any Velcro closure I've used. The lower tightening band is at the top of the calf, which really hold the package in place. Wish every pad put a tightened there. I wore them around the house for a couple hours and the floating knee really kept the hard shell where it should be and made walking comfortable. They didn't seem overly warm either.
They seem to fit a bit on the snug side. I'm right in the middle of the medium and they were a bit hard to get into, but weren't too tight once on. If you right at the top end of a size you might think about sizing up as they do have a lot of adjustment.
I picked these up for downhill and they certainly seem like they will do the job. Hopefully I won't test them out, but I'll try and update with any riding issues if they arise
