T.H.E. Maxi Knee Pads

Item #: PG246B00
Qty

Mountain biking and BMX can be rough and tumble sports, so it’s nice know that t.h.e. is there to offer you the ultimate protective gear with their Maxi Guard. The Maxi Guard utilizes German engineered SAS-TEC viscoelastic insert foam that reacts to impacts by dissipating the force throughout the material. Simply, the SAS-TEC will absorb that crash and then be ready for the next one. This durability leads t.h.e. to ensure that the Maxi Guards have an anticipated life expectancy of ten years. SAS-TEC is already widely used in the motorcycle industry and now t.h.e. is bringing that technology to bicycle protective gear.

Protective gear that isn’t comfortable is a chore to wear or worse yet, may be left behind and that could spell disaster. The t.h.e. Maxi Guard is built around a neoprene sleeve that has been perforated for ventilation and a low profile design that can fit under your pants. The lightweight design and the comfortable SAS-TEC translates to all day comfort. For added durability, the outside of the Maxi Guard is covered with a Kevlar fabric that resists tearing. When the Maxi Guards get dirty, they can easily be hand washed to keep them fresh for the next ride.

I bought these to have a little more protection than my old g-forms, and because they were such a good price. On first inspection the pads appear well made and durable but not overly heavy and bulky. Wore them around the house and the mediums fit well (I'm 5'10" 170lbs). On the trail the fit is good, there is a small break in period and then you don't really notice them at all. I was worried they would be bulkier and therefore bother me more than the g-forms but that is not the case. They stay in place very well and there was minimal slippage or movement over a 2 hour ride. They are a tad warm but that is not really a complaint, just an observation. I would give them 4.5 out of 5 stars based on quality, fit and price. Highly recommended for general trail riding.

I wish I could keep these. They look solidly built. I'm certain they'd hold up, and I think they'd be comfortable if sized appropriately. Sadly, despite measuring, and falling within the "Large" sizing range I should have gone with the XL.

At the current sale price these would be hard to beat, too bad Jenson doesn't have the XL size.

      These ended up being perfect for me. Perfect for hot weather, and once riding, I don't even notice I have them on. I can't comment on falling because I rarely fall hard at high speed, but I can tell these will be a huge help when I do. Eventually it will happen.

              I can't speak to the durability of these knee pads, but as far as them being comfy and lightweight, they're on point. Sizing is spot on (unlike the elbow pad version of this item) and does a good job of protecting my knees. These breathe fairly well but definitely could be better. Overall, for the price, you can't beat it.

              I should fit into the medium set according to the sizing chart and was a ways away from fitting into the large. Followed other reviews advice and order the large and it fit perfectly. You defineatly want to order one size up. They do not move and are extremely comfortable. I live in a hot area and forget that they are on. Well worth the money!

                  Pads are super comfortable and fit well. Low profile fits under jeans pretty well. First crash in softer dirt they did their job. Second crash on harder dirt with rocks and my knees are bloody and sore. Good pads just not reccomended for DH or a lot of dirt jumping.

                  Comments about T.H.E. Maxi Knee Pads:

                  I measured and compared my measurements with the sizing charts because comments indicated these ran small. I ordered the Large size, comfortably indicated by the size chart, and sadly the pads are too small, so they'll need to be exchanged.

                  On the other hand they look well designed and stoutly built. When I tried them on I could see they'd stay in place well and had cutouts/reduced fabric where it mattered to avoid bunching. I hope I can get some XLs as I think these will be great.
