    I turned 50 a few months ago and still enjoy riding challenging trails, especially now that I have a new Yeti SB-66. My wife and riding partners have been concerned I'm going to get hurt since I'm the most aggressive descender in my group. So I decided to look into some protection. I checked out SixSixOne, Fox, etc. but found them to be bulky and restrictive. I wanted something that would allow me to be able to ride up as well as down the trail. My LBS recommended Troy Lee Designs. The KG5450 appears to be just what I was looking for. They provide good protection without being bulky. They are slim and slip on easily. So far I am very happy with my choice.

    I have used these products for 2 seasons and i am looking to buy something different. I was stocked and excited about them when i got them but after using them and wrecking i would dissagree.
    Riding Down Hill and free ride i am always finding myself pulling them back into place. XC and light riding they seem to do ok. I have found they take the impact great but if you slide much on them they tend to slide right off leaving no protection. I also think the shin guard and fore arm pad are on the short side.
    I think my biggest problem with them is putting them on and taking them off. I like to wear pants for DH and Freeride and i either have to take my pants off to put them on or try to roll my pant legs up high enough to get them on and try to get my pants back over them. You can not wear them on the out side very well at all. When putting them on and off you have to be carefull where you pull on them or they will rip.
    They fit awesome and you cant even tell they are there. So i think i will give these to my wife wich she likes them alot, they work great for her riding.

      Comments about Troy Lee Designs KG5450 Knee/Shin Guard:

      This TLD KG5450 knee/shin combo offers light weight pads with enough protection for everyday trail use.

      It fits perfectly and does not slip or move around while pedaling. When taking it off, make sure you pull it from the aramid area to avoid over stretching of the lycra and damaging the stitches.

      It is my go to knee/shin protection at any given trail day and I will still purchase another set when my current ones can no longer serve its purpose.

        Comments about Troy Lee Designs KG5450 Knee/Shin Guard:

        It's a good set of knee/shin pads. I like that it slips on, but that's also the draw back after a ride. Once you sweat or it gets wet, removing it from your sticky skin can lead to the stitching starting to rip (at least you can hear it). I still recommend it though and will be picking up another pair once mine wears out completely.

        The wrap around the back of the leg and shin is AWESOME protection for pedal bite!!

          Comments about Troy Lee Designs KG5450 Knee/Shin Guard:

          I bought these out or necessity when I visited rays in Cleveland. Normally I hate extra gear but honestly if you get the right size you don't even know they are there. Grips keep it from moving around and they breathe very well. I wear them all the time now when riding just as a piece of mind. They have saved my skin a few times already. If I ever trash theses I'd buy another pair in a heart beat!

          Comments about Troy Lee Designs KG5450 Knee/Shin Guard:

          First off they look excellent and feel excellent. Like some others mentioned you cant "Brute strength" them on as they seem to stretch a bit. As long as you take care putting them on you have one great knee/shin combo. This was the only reason they get 4 and not five stars. I would definitely buy them again, and I am very pleased with them indeed.

          As for fit i do have quite large thighs BUT i did take the advice on these reviews and went for a medium and they fit real well. I am by no means overweight, 5,10 195 pounds. The mediums fit perfect. Defo go a size down!

            I really like these knee pads. They are lightweight and breathable. They flex with your legs well and are comfortable enough to wear even on hot days (compared to some other pads I've worn)

                  I use these for DH biking. They are comfortable and good looking but run large. I am 6' 195lbs and had to return the large for a med. Only con is that the stitching wants to rip when pulling them on.

                      First time I crashed with them the shin pad put a 4in cut in my shin. I was not going fast just had the front tire wash out after a 1.5ft drop in to an off camber section.

                          These pads are very light, and they cover just enough for a knee/shin protector. They cover only the top part of your shin, and that's the part that my pedal strikes my leg the most when I slip off the bike.

                          As for fall protection, I have yet to really find out ho well they work, but by feeling the material and ample padding they have, I'm not too worried about how well I'll be protected, but I might be a little worried about the way the pad looks after a crash since the fabric is on the exterior with no hard shell to protect it.

                          Fitting is a little big, so go one size smaller than on the sizing chart.
