These are pretty nice. They are soft, and that might be an issue to some. Using them in the dirt though shouldn't be a problem. There are 7, yes SEVEN straps that hold them on. I think I am going to cut 2 of the lower straps off because they can get moved around in my boots (A* Tech 3) and can hurt a bit. After getting them on just right you don't know they are really there.

These are pretty nice. Tons of padding. There are 2 calf straps and 2 knee straps plus a separate velcro close liner between the back of your leg and the straps so they are pretty comfortable. Fit in the boots well. I was looking for something without plastic because the plastic on the knee guard would catch on the bike so these worked perfect! They are kindof bulky above the knee but you hardly notice it while riding.
They stay in palce unlike those cheap knee shin gaurs with only two straps. Just takes a little long to put on. But worth the $. A better bargain than any other.
I got these because I don't wear full boots when I ride my TRX400, the picture is my old Raptor 250. They perform great and the ventilation is excellent. They are comfortable with adjustable straps to fit. I'm more on the slimer side and I got the small which fits perfect and it covers from above the knee down to my boots. I would recommend this product for riders that don't wear full boots but want to protect your shins/knees.
Hard to find the right size. I am 6'3" 200lbs. Started with a L (too small), exchanged for an XL (too big). Had to make some custom adjustments on the velcro straps to get a good fit. But overall good pads.
HELPS WITH SAFTEY.. BUT ALSO VERY COMFORTABLE AND HELPS WITH CONTROLL
These rock! I bought them because my yfz 450 is harsh on my knees and they work great, just as the add says they will. A little bulky but easy to get used too.
Hope that helps.
