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.

After two crashes, would not recommend this product

Comments about Troy Lee Designs KGL5450 Knee/Shin Guard:

I think most people review pads without actually crashing in them. I have - here's my experience.

I'm 5'11, 160-165 lbs and wear size medium 5450's. I crashed during downhill riding at Bailey mountain in NC. The left knee pad slid down my leg and my knee took a nice scrape. After that the pads rubbed my knee right on the scrape so I had to take the left pad off. The arm pads worked OK but on the second day of riding they started to slide down towards my wrists after they got soaked with sweat.

Would not recommend any pad that slides off during an impact instead of staying put. I would strongly recommend finding a pad with straps on top and bottom like the Fox Launch Pro. One guy with the Launch Pros went down and his pads stayed put.

Comments about Troy Lee Designs KGL5450 Knee/Shin Guard:

My second set. I liked the first ones, other than the fact that they stretched out and slide down my legs. Thinking it was my fault for pulling them on and off wrong. Wore the new ones once and they made a sore on my knee. I'm going to give them another shot as maybe I didn't have them on right.

      TLD - Knee Shin Guards

        Comments about Troy Lee Designs KGL5450 Knee/Shin Guard:

        I have ridden with all levels of leg protection throughout my mountain biking career for dare I say the last two and a half decades. Ranging from using nothing in my youth when you wore leg contusions and gravel laden cuts like a badge of honor to riding with a greater level of sensibility because the implications of crashing simply hurts for weeks vs. days at this stage.
        I don't ride without knee protection any longer and vary my protection from full knee shin plastic outer shell in the winter (bulky) to basic tech. gel knee only minimalist protection in the summer (limited protection). The TLD 5450 Knee/Shin protectors are IMO the best compromise of the two extremes, they offer good protection in the front, limited on the sides but too much is not always a good thing when my riding style is AM/XC focused.
        Fit: The TLD 5450's are extremely comfortable, and they stay in place with no adjustment required. That is a first for me. They have a thin plastic shell under the material to protect the knee and upper shin that is not bomb proof and inflexible, but rather just right! I have taken a couple minor spills and they have been superb.
        I would highly recommend to AM/XC riders who are seeking good knee and upper shin protection and who like to ride without having to fiddle with their gear and are not seeking the bulky protection and inflexibility of C3PO.
        Lastly, I would recommending ordering one size down I am 6'2" 195 with average legs for my size and sized a large but purchased a medium based on others recommendations and they are spot on. PS I rated 4 stars simply due to the sizing issue. Cheers!

        Comments about Troy Lee Designs KGL5450 Knee/Shin Guard:

        Product was best fitted in store as it seemed to run a size smaller than what I thought I would be. I use these often and notice that the stitching tears nearly every time I pull them off. You have to be very careful when pulling these off not to tear the stitching, which essentially provides the tight fit needed without straps. It has only been a few months now and they are sliding down around my ankles as so many of the stitches have torn. While they provide good protection for mild to moderate crashes, they do not fit well, nor does the stitching hold up over the long term. I will not be buying these again.

              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 KGL5450 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!!
