iXS Carve EVO+ knee guard - problem with Xmatter protection foam

Hello!

13 June 2021 bought a new iXS Carve EVO+ Knee Guard – camel.

Everything was fine until last days. The foam became hard. Pads are all the time inside apartment, in normal conditions, but still – hard, if you push on them – it’s just almost like plastic cups.

What can be done about it ? Anyone familiar with that?

my wive's foam also cracked on ALL her pads after washing them.

Thinking this was a washing issue I removed mine prior to the first wash.

They both cracked later after sitting in my kit bag

They are only 6 months old

IXS have a massive problem and need to do something about it.
People are too lazy to warranty claim - including my wife !

I put a claim in immediately

We are not the only ones. Some friends are finding their pads breaking down now.

Also had issues with the Xmatter protection foam (Carve Race, with the plastic skid plate)

Upon delivery it was already cracked - Wore the replacement pair twice, and the foam ripped inside the protection even though it was only a minor crash...

Replaced again, but didn't use them much since....
