POC Joint VPD AIR Knee Guards
The bulk and restriction that comes with wearing protective guards is enough to make many downhillers contemplate going commando (no pads) on the next run. POC's Joint VPD AIR Knee Guards takes this issue by the horns by offering a low profile design that employs lightweight, impact absorbing VPD (VISCO-ELASTIC POLYMER DOUGH) compound. This allows the AIR Knee Guard's to mold to the body's contours and transition from soft to hard during impact, so trying to decide between comfort and safety is a decision of the past. The reinforced stretch fabric and neoprene anti-slip on the inside do wonders to keep the knee guard secured in place and ready to take a hit.

G-Forms slid around far too much and stayed in place for all of 30 seconds of pedaling. Super annoying and not really effective protection. Dainese's sizing is just plain ridiculous. I'm a large in most brands when it comes to kneed pads, but I would have had to size all the way up to XL for them to fit. That kind of ignorance re: sizing is unacceptable. So I finally went with the tried and true POC product, which I should've done in the bay beginning. They fit really well, are comfortable (at least for the first few hours of pedaling and then they start to chafe just like any other kneepad will) they have superior protection to most other lightweight kneepads, and they stay in place during a crash.

These are comfortable, don't seem to be chafing me, and are staying put. I've pulled them up a couple of times, but just to adjust them.
