G-Form Pro-X Knee Pads
G-FormPro-X Knee Pads

Just right.

Big, bulky knee pads make riding tougher than it needs to be, and on most rides, you just want a little extra protection, not a hockey goalie setup. The G-Form Pro-X Knee Pads are perfect for all-mountain rides –the RPT Impact Protection hardens on impact, and protects your skin and bones from injuries.

Lightweight, comfortable protection

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I just bought these for a 2-day MTB skills clinic (drops, berms, pump track and such) and they were PERFECT! When on, they only feel like you're wearing kneewarmers, and they're not too hot. Be careful with sizing, as some of the other reviewers stated - I had to go up 1 size from my usual shorts size. I'm so happy with this purchase that I'm going to get the elbow pads to replace my heavy POC set. Wearing both this weekend showed me how much more comfortable the G-forms are. It's nice to know I can throw these in my bag in case the terrain gets rough, or I get daring and want to try something new ;-)

Great, Lightweight Pad for Pedaling

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These are a great option for those looking for lightweight protection that'll breathe well on the way up and provide adequate protection on the way back down. Highly suggest something burlier for days at the bike park, but for a day riding up to fly back down, these are the perfect option. The rubber on the knees is made to flex easily and well, allowing for smooth pedal strokes. The lycra material is lightweight and breathes well. They hold their elasticity well, though the stitching has started to come undone. Still plenty of life left in them though.

Fit well, don’t slip

    My husband bought these and he says: I’ve always had knee pain when wearing knee bass and these are better but still hurt my knees after a long day (constant patellar compression). They don’t ride down which is great and are lightweight, have not stretched much after 20+ hrs of riding. Medium fits my skinny legs well. Some of the stitching is coming undone after just a few rides which is disappointing.

    Great kneepads!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium

    So I had heard a lot of great things about these knee pads, so when they went on sale, I decided to get them. I am new to MTB, so I wanted something that would help me be more confident while riding, and the few falls I've taken with these on have been free of knee scrapes or bangs ups. So these definitely do their job. One thing I will say about the sizing is, absolutely measure your knees, because you may be a shorter person like myself, and get smalls in everything else, but need a medium for these. It truly depends on how large your knees are.


      So these are sooooo comfortable and they dont get wet from sweat like some do. They protect my knees very well! If you deciding between these and another pair. Just get these

      Comfortable and Breathable

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I love these G-Form pads. They are lightweight, super comfortable, and they wick moisture pretty well. The padding is like a soft rubber material so they flex with you on every movement. Upon impact, the material hardens up to protect you. I haven't seen a more comfortable knee pad.

      Crash tested

        I'm pretty satisfied with the gform pads. They are as comfortable as the fox enduro pads and offer a bit more protection when it comes to impacts. Unfortunately I was able to test these out the second time I rode in them and they performed decently at a moderate speed slide out, but the pad I landed on slid down my knee and I still got a good road rash. Not sure if another pad would have stayed on in a similar crash, but you can only ask so much of pads so light. I'm still happy with my purchase, and would recommend them for light duty crashes haha

        Perfect for Peddling

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

        I gave these as a gift, he digs them. The size guide is spot on. They'r e not overly warm for a hot day, and allow the back of the knee to breathe. Slim enough to wear under shorts/knickers etc. And good for general wear on an untamed trail with branches, brush, etc. Recommend these for any rider who just wants a bit of impact protection.

        Good pads

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

        I bought these as a gift, they are great for people who want a lower profile pad, that protects but still is good to pedal in. They are great for confidence for beginners as well, and they wont get in their way.

        Great for light protection

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: Runs small

        I wear these if I know I have to pedal a lot but still want to get rowdy. No straps or heavier material, they are made of the same material knee warmers are made of, and feel the same while pedaling. The flip side of that is they are not super protective, so I would not wear them for gravity or lift access riding, but they have saved my knees on several occasions riding the local trails here in utah. They do run small, so size up a size from what you normally get!

        Unanswered Question

        Would this work together with a g-form shin guard?

        I bought my G-FORM PRO-X KNEE PADS from CC and I was checking for the same brand shin guard but I see you don't have it. Anyways I wanted to ask you if you think a g-form shin guard would play well with this
        Thank you

        When you don't want to stop and pull down your knee pads during transitions or pedals - these pads are the answer. No more pinching or bunching because the fabric is super stretchy and soft - yet still maintains composure during a crash. Not the strongest, but better than wearing nothing at all on those hot pedal days.

        Too Tight

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

        I purchased these for light protection, not DH. I was going to Moab and I needed some protection from sharp rocks and scrapes. I tried the pads on in the home and also riding around in the neighborhood. The initial fit was concerning because I have large calf muscles and the lower part of the knee pads would ride up into the bend of the knee. This was very uncomfortable and started to be painful after only about 20 minutes of pedaling. I took the pads off and verified the size chart that I purchased the right size. Unfortunately the size measurements are only for above the knee. I think a better design would be below the calf coverage. They do offer a shin+knee pad but I thought this was overkill for me. I ended up with the Specialized Atlas knee pad and the issue of constriction was resolved.

        a little more than less

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        These are great for those long tech rides because they pack up easy and are still comfy and easy to pedal around in.

        Awesome Fitting Pad

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        I recently had ACL surgery so I decided to bag a set of knee pads for a little phycological comfort.

        I tried - and returned - a couple of other brands before I even hit the hill. The Demon's had a tough fit for me... I couldn't even pull the small on and the medium floated/slipped way too much simply doing a couple squats. They also felt a tad too bulky to me around the knee. I also tried the triple-8 snow pads and while I like the less bulky feel around the kneecap, they still didn't feel right. Finally I sucked it up, spent a little more and got these.

        The fit was night and day superior compared to the rest. The way the pads are distributed, the fit is phenominal. I also like how they were longer... fitting more like a compression sleeve with padding - not just a knee pad.

        On the hill they had very minimal slippage and never noticed they were on. In fact, I only noticed they slipped after I was done boarding and they still covered the knee. Similar to the Demon's, the sleeve has a rubber layer on the inside cuffs to help keep them in place. I think that's the biggest selling point of the G-Form product line IMHO... you don't really notice them. Because of this, I'll always wear them... and that's key.

        Work pretty well

          I have worn these a few times now and they work pretty well. They stay up pretty good and kinda feel like you're wearing a pair of knee warmers.

          Great low profile protector

            I bought these as gifts for my ripper little brothers. When I strap on knee pads, I usually go for something more burly, but my little bros crash so often on normal rides, they needed them. they were stoked and ride them all the time.

            All you need

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            If you're riding steep, long ascents to get to the goods on the downhill, there's no other way to go. It's wearing breathable underarmour with protection from really harsh crashes.

            It's like a subconscious thing with them on. It feels like you don't have anything on, but feel invincible ripping down any type of terrain.

            Not a bad pad

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            To be frank, I am hesitant to wear any protection while biking (except for a helmet, duh). However, I picked these up for a trip to Moab because I always seem to leave a lot of skin on the rocks of Porcupine Rim, Amasa Back, and Portal.

            As a generally non-pad wearer, I definitely noticed these and did feel a little restricted at first, but compared to most other light-weight pads, these are hands down my favorites.

            I eventually settled on pulling the pads down over my calves if I had an extended climb, and pulling them up on the descents. This compromise worked for me. As far as protection, I am happy to report that Moab didn't claim any skin from my knees this time!

            Works as Intended

            • Fit: True to size

            This Pads are fantastic! I've taken a couple of solid tumbles in them in the month that I've had them, and they diminished to impact to mere bruising, instead of loss of skin. They pedal quite well, and don't tend to slide down or get too hot. I certainly don't care about the funky look, because I'm having too much fun with them on!
