  • + 1
 yeh, but with no crazy big, in you face logos, which you don't need if you're not being paid to wear them... these look really comfy, nice and neat, and just like you can fit and forgrt, definitely getting a pair

 i like the kyle straits they look awsome

 but dont forget these have got a hard shell...not a softer one like in the kyle straits
  • + 1
 what you been hearing cos kyle straits have a hard pad
  • + 1
 No they don't
  • + 2
 I own a pair of kyle straits and yes they do have a hard shell. You're confusing them with the EVO pads.
  • + 1
 indeed.. mine have a hard insert too Salute
  • + 1
 it not a hard shell like the 661 tom cat ....which i own...the kyle strait shell still flexes and bends
  • + 2
 They don't make the Tom cats anymore so they put a thicker HARD shell in the new Kyle strait. The pads look the same as the old ones except for the velcro closer has a differnt logo. true story !

 This contest could backfire on you guys so easily. You really shouldn't be encouraging kids to go out and smash up their knees just to win a pair of lousy knee pads.
