G-Form Knee Pads

The G-Form Knee Pad provides form fitting protection for all day excursions out on the trails. G-Form uses RPT™ - Reactive Protection Technology, a blend of Poron® XRD™ and proprietary G-Form materials and technology. RPT give you a protective material that is progressive, meaning it gets tougher as the impact increases. It will also keep protecting you after repeated impacts without losing any of its protective qualities.

RPT Technology in the G-Form Knee Pad also keeps the pad light and comfortable and protects your knee on rides where you may not want downhill type protection that may be too bulky. The protective exo-skeleton is hinged to remain flexible and not restrict movement. The protective element is attached to a compression fabric in order to keep it close to the body to insure that your protection does not move away from your key areas. The G-Form Knee Pads can be worn in warm or cold weather, on top or underneath clothing.

Lightweight minimalistic protec
I have Troy Lee Designs Lopes Knee Guards, and they're awesome... but overkill for XC/lightweight trail riding. So I was looking for something more lightweight when I'm in casual mode (as given the opportunity I'll still take advantage of a nice jump or short descent).

So I decided to give the G-Forms a chance. Although many reviews say go up a size, I decided to stick to the sizing chart and go with small. I think the main consideration is what is your knee circumference vs. your calf circumference. If you have thick stocky legs, then go up a size, but if you're like me and have legs like a chicken, then the sizing chart is accurate. :)

I've used them once so far, and found them to be quite comfortable. Don't really notice them when riding, and they don't slip at all. As luck would have it, I did crash with them on this first run. There's this tricky spot that many friends have taken a spill, and I've done this technical single track before, but for some reason I went with my instincts vs. trusting in physics, and didn't go into this steep drop with a big tree root in front of it fast enough.

My knee did take a bit of a beating. The part where the rubber was covering the knee were fine, but you can see in the product picture that it's coverage area is limited. And any spot where there wasn't that rubber, I got bruised.

But that kind of maneuver is beyond what I would expect from these G-Forms. The rubber compound they use is quite interesting - it's like a reactive armor and is much thicker than what you'd expect from the pictures. I wouldn't be surprised if it could stop a bullet.

So overall I would recommend these if you're looking for minimalistic and lightweight protection for XC/casual trail riding. If you're going to go more aggressive, I would look into something that provides more coverage (e.g. Troy Lee KG5450's, Troy Lee Lopes knee guards, etc...).

Great Light Wieght Pads
Great knee pads. Light weight and barely noticeable when riding. I've taken a few smaller falls, and they held up well and provided solid protection. The material has held up very well (have had them for about a year). Fully recommend these pads.

PROS: Stay in place, Great For Pedalingxc, Light Weight, Good protection

CONS: None yet

BEST USES: all mountain, Cross country, Light freeride

Awesome XC/light Trail Knee Pads
Delivery took longer than expected as item was out of stock at Jenson and evidently the manufacturer as well. I did buy them on sale and got a great deal so I can't really complain much.

PROS: Lightweight, Stay in place, Did I mention lightweight, AWESOME PROTECTION, Great pedal mobility, Fit in pack

CONS: A little expensive

They even keep you warm
I saw another rider in my local area riding with knee and elbows on during a XC ride. I asked him about them and he liked them. So I thought I would give them a try, especially at the price Jenson is selling them for. They work well. The disposition of energy throughout the pad is cool. Draw back of my riding area is it is rocky (sharp rocks). Though these pads save the skin, they will shred some. I went on a freezing MTB ride not to long ago and forgot my leggings to keep warm. So I used these in place and the pads worked very well shielding the wind. My only "blah" about the pads is, when the top gripper slides down (not a lot) it naturally binds behind the knee. It would be a smart move on G-form to redesign the back of the knee with less material.

PROS: Durable, Lightweight, Price, Versatile

CONS: Binding Behind The Knee, Grippers Slide Just A Bit

BEST USES: Xc Mtb Riding, Mountain Biking, Light Dh Riding, Non Rocky Terrain, Cx Riding

Best option for light protection
These are great for rides with a lot of pedaling, but where you still want protection. These aren't nearly as good as a hard shell pad, but then again, their design intent was to be comfortable while providing protection. You can put them on at the beginning of a ride, and you'll soon forget they're even on. The fabric part wicks away sweat well. I had a few low speed falls while negotiating rocky and loose terrain, and the padding was covered in dirt when I got up, but my knees were unhurt. They did their job.

PROS: Breathable, Durable, Lightweight, Flexible

BEST USES: Mountain Biking, Commuting/City

Great light knee pads
These are the most light and well ventilated pads I've ever owned. I sometimes just put them on and ride uphill instead of putting them on when I get to the top. I've had one OTB with them on and everything worked as expected. I wouldn't use them for FR/DH and they will slip if you go over a certain speed. But which pad doesn't.

PROS: Good Ventilation, Light

BEST USES: XC, Trail

Perform as Advertised
I bought these for a mtn bike trip to Sedona AZ. They are super light weight and don't take up a ton of luggage space. They performed as promised, absorbing mostly everything. They are great for light to medium duty, but wouldn't expect them to handle the big falls. The fit was astonishingly comfortable, as if there was nothing there until you needed them. Only critique is that one of the padded 'cells', along with some material ripped open on a 'skid' fall with knee dragging. This is expected - better the pad than my knee! They are still usable and dependable.

PROS: Lightweight, Versatile

CONS: Wears Out Quickly

BEST USES: Road Biking, Commuting/City, Mountain Biking

These just arrived today and I haven't got a chance to try them out yet, but I really like the way they fit. I hardly even notice them when wearing them and they are much lighter than I expected.

Good Knee Pads
Good pad for pedaling, you truely forget that they are on. Would give 5 stars but after 4 rides I have a hole in the material on one of the sleeves, hoping it does not grow and become an issue.

Careful on sizing, I measured to be an XL and found them to be loose, so I returned them and went down a size.

PROS: Lightweight, Comfortable

BEST USES: Mountain Biking, Trail riding, Cross country
