Protection for the descent, mobility for the climb.

The Ion K-Pact Select Knee Pad is designed for the aggressive trail rider and enduro racer seeking an optimal balance between pedaling mobility and rugged protection against nasty spills. Ion painstakingly developed the K-Pact Select Knee Pad with separate knee and shin panels (i.e. what Ion refers to as their patented Tectonic Fit) for flexibility when you're pedaling your six-inch sled uphill for a long duration.

The pad itself uses lightweight EVA side panels to disperse crushing impact forces, but without sacrificing mobility in key areas. The knee pad zone features SAS-Tec and Air Prene padding, both of which are used for their flexibility, breathable comfort, and impact protection. Power Aramid material along the upper pad withstands abrasion and tearing forces, should you slide out on your bike over rugged ground.

The best

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Other than being a bit hot, there is nothing better. The Select stays put and has never moved around on my legs. I don't even notice the Select when peddling uphills whether I'm sitted or standing. I am 5 foot 8 inches tall and the large fits me perfectly. I have had just a few wrecks since owning the Select and while none of them have been at speed, the Select has saved my lower legs from what would have been bad trail rash. I do not go riding without the Select on. It takes only about 20 seconds to put each pad on. Once your past the initial tweak to get the pads fitted to your knee and lower leg, strapping these on from ride to ride is easy. Now I just need to find some elbow pads. 😁

Creme de la creme of knee pads

These pads are engineered to be comfortable and quality. They speak for themselves. Order a pair and try them on. You won't return them.

Thanks for the review, Don.
