Specialized Atlas Knee Pad - Review
Hi Chuck,Hi Hemlock, we use a material called Curv, it's recycled polypropelene threads that laid down in a lattice like carbon and compressed by heat, it's used extensively by a number of race teams for light weight panels on underneath of race cars - sure it's a plastic derivative but it's super light, flexible and allied with good quality foam offers superior protection to a soft pad with or without a Kevlar face. The CE test is great for whittling out poor foams - but it's a road Motorcycle test designed for crashing onto a smooth surface not a spill in an ugly rock garden. Armourgel looks like a TPR to me.One thing I do agree with the Bliss guy about is chossing the right armour for the riding you'r doing.Hemlock I think you 'get it', sounds like Bliss need some help ...so maybe you should send em your CV... (only kidding Bliss)!

Specialized Atlas Knee Pad - Review
Chuck you are absolutely right that protection has come a long way in the past 10 years. Ref. your comments on the hard shell armour/soft armour debate I would tend to disagree. Hard armour with inadequate foam behind the hard outer shell will as you state not dissipate any energy, but hard armour with a good quality foam behind a lightweight outer shell offers the best combination of penetration and shock absorbency. Soft shell pads even though they may pass the CE standard (EN1621-1:2012) will not fully prevent penetration. Be careful about swallowing too much of any manufacturer's claim about the latest greatest brightly coloured magic foams (unless it's us)!!! Does anyone know if the Specialized pad passes the CE EN1621-1 standard? They'll need to if they want to sell them in the EU. Cheers Martin 7iDP

7iDP Covert Knee Pads - Review
Contact me - this is a real surprise - these pads have been tested at great length by some seriously talented riders capable of giving great feedback - they were over 2 years in development. Honestly our guys crashed, crashed and crashed again... it maybe you have the wrong size, the feedback we received was that they stayed in place really well.We want you to have a good experience with our product, so please get in touch and we'll try and fix any issues you have.

7iDP Protection Collection 2015
Yes like all our back plates it is fully compliant with CE EN1621-2. it is not only thin it is also very well ventilated with channels on the inside of the protector to promote airflow.

7iDP Protection Collection 2015
Thanks for all the positive comments. We apologise for the late arrival of the product - but as a group we were adamant that we would not release product to the market until it had been fully tested by our test pilots including Peaty, Barel and Weir. We thought we had it right with our prototypes, but the feedback we received sent us back to the drawing board. For example our Tactic went through almost 20 prototypes before we finally arrived with the finished item. Similarly, our Control knee was ready to go last year, but we received some valuable feedback from the Urge Rocky Mountain Enduro team, who had used these extensively last season. This resulted in us tweaking the design further. Finally, we are good to go. It has been a long process, but we are confident that what we now offer is really a step forward in the protection market. All product is CE approved yet remains light and 100% cycle friendly. Good news: Most models became available globally this week. Thank you for your patience!
