2016 Pinkbike Awards - Gear Accessory of the Year Nominees
I have to disagree with the Dakine Slayer kneepads. I have a pair and initially thought the same as you. Well priced, very comfortable, decently breathable, stay in place, no chafing when you pedal.Then I had a front-end wash out at a moderate speed that really changed my mind. It wasn't a bad crash, the top of my kneecap just hit hardpacked dirt. The pad stayed in place and I didn't hit jagged rocks or anything like that. My kneecap was disproportionately banged up though. Extremely swollen and very limited mobility. Took close to three weeks to bend it enough so I could walk down stairs without hopping like an idiot. It's now nearly two months later and I'm still having trouble with it. And yes, I took anti-inflammatory's and iced it every night. I've had far more brutal crashes on my knees without any similar problems while using my old Fox Launch kneepads. I understand that they're the "lightweight" version of Dakine's pads, but the level of protection offered seemed pretty non-existent. Maybe it saved me from a shattered kneecap or something worse, but I've learned my lesson with lightweight kneepads. Just a cautionary tale for anyone looking to buy a lighter pad.
