the pads themselves are great. the padding is such that it's very comfortable for extended use. i didn't experience any chaffing or irritation while pedaling. the hard shell is great for falling on odd shaped objects or hitting at weird angles. nobody falls into soft grass....

having said that, there's a couple things to be aware of. the pads can get hot on long days. with cushioning all around and the hard shell, it doesn't vent in the front (the back is open tho) and when i take them off i'm always sweaty inside. i don't notice it while riding and it's not uncomfortable but something to know. i suppose you could consider it a good windbreak for your knees if you fly downhill tho.

also, these don't stay put. as the day goes by i don't know if the straps get stretched or if the moisture from sweat is making them slippery but they tend to slide down or twist around your leg. to be fair, this can be said of most strap based knee pads. if this is a dealbreaker for you, you may want to look at the sleeved pads that you pull on like a sock.

Have only been using the product for half a season.... single track and downhill. Didn't want to splurge on anything to fancy, and this is doing the trick. Seems that once a little sweat builds up on the front of my leg, they tend to slide down a little. Easy enough to yank back up, but some of the better pads seem to have better straps.

Comments about Fox Apparel Fox Launch Sport Knee Guard:

Pros: Really comfortable to ride with. It flexes with your leg even when seated on your bike. I like to how it has 3 straps, 2 at the calve area and 1 at the quad area. Not a burden to the legs, its pretty light

cons: just that its bulky. Keeps sliding down once in awhile, so need to pull up.

            I like this guards, they are pretty affordable, might not be very lightweight but not heavy and give good protection as they cover knee and shin.
            The guards also have good fit, they are avilable in only one size but despite being a short guy (5'5") they fit good. Not very breathable but still I find them comfortable. Very good option.

            Comments about Fox Apparel Fox Launch Sport Knee Guard:

            I use these pads only when I am riding in rocky areas, and I didn't want to spend $50 or $60 on a set of pads that I wasn't going to wear all the time. These pads get the job done and look good.
