Great protection for the price

I was looking for a stp up from a basic guard without going into a full knee brace/guard, so I liked that this appeared to give some lateral support.
Upon receiving them the lateral torsion is not a stiff as it could be, but for the price I am still very happy with the protection level.
The full patella cup is substantial, as is all of the internal padding.
On leg, this feels like a very substantial guard, and I have been very happy with how it has done in the falls I have taken so far.
This guard fastens with a series of different straps and I could see how you might get some rubbing, however I have gone to wearing the Thor Comp Knee Sleeves underneath and this has helped a ton to keep any rubbing down, and keeps the sweat down as well.
Which brings me to the last thing I have seen mentioned on other reviews, these are a little warm. I dont usually have much of an issue with over heating, and in cases that I have, these knee guards were not really the cause. Bottom line, for the level of protection they provide, the breathability has not been any real down grade.

Work great.

My kids like them. They fit fine and go into their boots. One of the straps rubbed my older boy's leg too much but think I can fix by adjusting the length next time out. Got S/M for 4'10" kid and 5'2" kid. Got myself a slightly cheaper once size fits all brand; I'm 6'3" and those work for me but can't imagine they would for my kids.

Great Knee Braces

I've been able to ride this in the late heat of summer all through fall and they weren't too hot and help up wonderfully! Enjoy the ROM they offer, but the added protection of the knees when playing on the deep ruts and off camber rocky sections. Only minor complaint was the darn sizing / info tags rubbing on my legs but that was fixed w/ a pair of scissors and no looking back. Great strap setup w/ velcro closures around the leg / thigh and secondary strap then wrapping around the lower thigh and leg. Very happy! A+ if/when I destroy them I'd get another pair. Lastly, not cost prohibitive so they'd make a great gift for riding buddies! Attack, ride safe!

Force XP

I can not say enough about these knee guards, they are very comfortable, they look great and seem to have great protection. They are not bulky at all and after a long riding session, they don't hurt or dig into your skin. Great purchase for the price

These knee guards are awesome. They have great coverage and protection. I bought the large and they fit perfect. I'm 6'3". They also go down into the boot a couple inches. So good shin protection also

Not dual pivot

Got these to replace my single pivot knee guards because I like the feel of my buddy's Force knee guards. Got the XP version because it was the latest version available. Noticed immediately after putting them on that only the top pivot was moving. Took it off and tried to bend the knee brace with my hands. The knee cup was catching on the top of the shin guard and stopping it from bending at the lower pivot. If I forced it to bend, the cup would snap past the shin guard and would stick there and would not extend until significant force was applied to snap it back past the shin guard. It is a serious design flaw that should have been noticed by the designers. Essentially it is a single pivot design that is not lined up with the joint line of the knee. Returning to my dealer and ordering the regular Force knee guards.
