Had my doubts
I've never had much luck with "slip up" guards. They always tend to slip. I purchased these in June of 2016 and I have to admit that I had my doubts at first but was pleasantly surprised!

They've not slipped once on me! Even when I had to hike it or when I was doing trail maintenance.

Most of the time I forgot they were there!

The padding is light and though I've yet to crash with them (fingers crossed) I think it would still provide some protection - much more so than if you weren't wearing any.

I have also washed mine twice - letting them air dry - and they still grip!

The low price also attracted me to this guard. Unfortunately when it comes to clothing and accessories like this the only real way to know is to try it for yourself.

Hope this helps

Stays in place.
These are my first set of knee pads, so I was looking for something at a lower pricepoint. When I tried them on after receiving them I have to admit I was a little worried. I had measured my legs and ordered according to the size chart, but they felt very loose. I read some reviews and people noted that they feel loose, but they stay in place. With that in mind I ripped off the tags and went racing with them last weekend. The race ended up being a 20 mile long muddy mess. Through it all the knee pads stayed in place and after the first couple of miles I barely noticed them. Fortunately I didn't get to test their protective qualities, but I'm pretty confident that they'll do a lot betted than the bare knees I used to ride around with.

I'm a stickler about knee pads cause I wear them on every ride from 1 hour quickies to 4 hour slogs. Like a great waitress they gotta disappear when you don't need them and magically reappear at just the right time. These don't slip or chafe and look the business. I haven't crashed tested them yet but they're beefier than the ones they replace so I expect them to work for 99% of my crashes. Last but not least is the unbeatable price/value. Fit chart is accurate

Comfortable protection
The Paragon sizing chart worked great for me. My measurements were in the middle of the Large range and the knee guards fit me quite comfortably.

As another reviewer noted, the ergonomic fit leads to some bunching up of the cloth above the knee, though this doesn't feel uncomfortable.

I've used the Paragons for rides of up to 3 hours so far and with temperatures as high as 35 Celsius with no discomfort.

Look and feel is great! They look quite nice and are easy to get used to. After a few minutes of pedaling it's easy to forget you're wearing them.

I haven't had any falls yet, and hopefully I won't need to test how effective they are.

Excellent for regular riding
great pads for the price. I have good sized quads and am generally a medium in everything I buy but these are just a hair big. wouldn't go down to small though. overall the fit well, stay positioned for the most part and they protect. have crashed a handful of times with them and they did their job and still look good

CONS: Hard To Nail Down Sizing

Super flexible and breathable.
Works great. Put them on and you'll quickly forget your wearing them. I use them in the summer when the trail is dry and loose. They have saved my knees many times.

Comfy Protection
I ride most days with a mix of XC and Downhill. I'd never worn knee pads and was looking for something to prevent trail rash and not be too bulky. I was pleasantly surprised that you barely notice these While riding but seem sufficient to keep the skin on your knees. I was a little worried that that mesh backing would rub behind the knee, but so far I have no complaints. I used the sizing chart and it seemed correct. I liked these so much I ordered the elbow pads too.

Is there a padding that harden upon impact on these knee guard?
Sampliphy on Oct 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would say that the padding is simply firm to begin with.
I am 5'2" about 115 lbs and wear a size small for these knee pads. I can tell you that they're comfortable to wear and have protected me for falls during a few different rides. These wouldn't be my choice for anticipated hard impacts on super steep, rocky terrain (I'd look for something more protective), but for most moderate to fairly steep rides they're great. Lots of mobility, but the protective layer in the pads feels stout for minor to medium impacts.
