                  Description

                  Alpinestars SX-1 Knee Guards

                  There are two types of riders who should be looking at the Alpinestars SX-1 Knee Guards - those who have injured a knee in the past and those who haven’t. A knee injury will stop you quicker than a seized front brake caliper, and catastrophic knee injuries are most commonly caused by landing forces (which tend to be encountered on a semi regular basis during the course of a moto). Rather than standard knee/shin guards that protect you only from roost and impact directly to the knee, the Alpinestars SX-1 Knee Guards utilize Alpinestars’ Dual Gear System to brace the knee on both medial and lateral sides, supporting the joint and preventing injury or reinjury. The low profile polymer protectors are heavily perforated for maximum airflow and backed with viscoelastic padding and breathable mesh ensure an adaptive, comfortable fit.

                  Features:

                  • CE certified knee brace EN 1621-1:2012 K type A (level 1)
                  • Upper and lower frames are constructed from a high performance polymeric material blend for optimized levels of flexibility and strength as well as excellent weight saving properties
                  • Polymer protector plates are strategically perforated for maximum breathability and air ventilation
                  • Dual Gear System (DGS), a dual pivot with integrated hinge gear system for dynamic fit for mobility
                  • Upper frame features extended frame for increased thigh protection without compromising mobility
                  • Patella construction features floating protection cup for continuous coverage and mobility regardless of leg position
                  • Patella cup constructed from impact resistant PU foam knee cup CE certified Type A
                  • Patella cup backed by soft, viscoelastic padding for adaptive fit and breathable air mesh for ventilation and comfort
                  • High abrasion-resistant fabric with an over injected TPU frame structure on outer central knee-cup area to improve the impact performances
                  • Thermoformed foam backing for excellent comfort against the skin
                  • Frames are asymmetrical and feature a slim, ergonomic design for comfort and performance fit
                  • VELCRO® brand and TPR dual strap closure systems for easy in and out and a personalized, safe fit

                  Rated 2 out of 5 by from Look elsewhere These knee pads offer very good protection but come with a major flaw. The straps dig into your legs at the back. Very annoying in a hurry. The only way to wear them is with a leg sock of some sort.
