Your mini ripper may not think they need extra protection on the trails, but you'd rather not wait for tears and bandages to prove them wrong. G-Form's Pro-X Knee Pads won't slow them down when they're ripping berms or railing around tight corners, but the pads will protect their knobby knees when they don't dice through a line as well as they planned.
The Pro-X is backed by a stretchy, breathable sleeve that makes it easy to pull on and off, and its articulated design allows for a full range of motion while pedaling. Plus, on the days Junior stumbles in from a trail ride covered in dirt and sweat, you can throw the Pro-X in any machine washer to ward off odors without causing damage.

Comfortable but worn out after 3 months

These knee pads are relatively comfortable to pedal in and they provide a fair amount of protection, however I like to rate products based on how good the company backs their product. I have had the these knee pads just about 3 months and probably wore them less than 5 times and already there is tear in the material (see pic below). G-form won't respond to email or phone calls. For my next pair which seems to be in a very near future I will be investing in either the 661 Recon Knee guards which are quiet a bit easier to pedal in since they have an opening behind the knee and they provide better knee protection or the leatt.
