We have launched a brand new knee pad - the DBX 6.0 Knee Guard.

The knee pad is purposely-designed to combine the best of both worlds: a classic soft protection construction covered by two hard shell sliders. One main hardshell slider covers the upper shin / kneecap, followed by an additional hard shell slider along the top of the kneecap. Leatt's 3DF-foam is constructed to be soft whilst riding and harden upon impact. It's been used within Leatt's soft protectors for many years.

Our aim is to improve sliding characteristics on rough terrain, so the impact forces are reduced and prevents knee guard slipping during a crash. The DBX 6.0 knee guard continues to be pedalling-friendly (split / two hard caps), offering sufficient ventilation due to the new thoroughly perforated main fabric at the front and very breathable mesh at the back.

There is one Velcro strap at the thigh with a silicone grip lining on the interior, as well as an anti-slip band located at the top of the calf.

This enables a classic, snug pre-curved fit that ticks the comfort boxes, with proven 3DF main padding, adding the advantages of hardcap protectors.

And of course can also be worn under DH-pants, the hard caps also helping the pant fabric to slide easier over.

 Hey PB journalist and article writers; try to get release dates on the products you review so we know when they hit the market.

This is something I've noticed for a long time not being stated in the articles. This could be because the writer just does not know. However, the information on release dates would be easy to get with a call to the company informing them of the review to be written with a request from the writer to the company for a release date. And, if a release date is still not made up, "TBD" can be placed in the article.

Just my thoughts anyways.
