View Full Version : Knee Pads
Time to retire the ancient set of Rector Protectors circa 1988. They're now fully depreciated and I can throw them away with good conscience. Seems to me that a pair of contractor's knee pads will do the trick for about $10-15. Anyone have any advice about why I might want to consider shelling out $30 or more to BD or Life Link? Since these will be worn underneath the shell pants, I'm not too concerned with logos and color :D

I think the BD's look a little more comfy...little more geared towards all day use.
I used to get sick of my sk8 pads after about 2 hrs riding ramp and couldnt imagine having them on for a long tour.
my 2 cents.

I use roller blading kneepads that I picked up at City Sports for about $10. I think they fit and feel much better than contractor kneepads. I wear them all winter, no problems.

I have some Alta Superflex knee pads (http://www.cmcrescue.com/product.php?dept_id=1218) which are darn comfy, although not as cheap as the Home Depot variety. Pretty much indistructable to boot.
