It’s going to happen in mountain biking, but falling off and making mistakes is all part of the fun. Getting muddy, slapped in the face with branches and kicking up those stones are the risks we take when we shred those gnarly trails.
It’s important to take care of your body though, and having effective protection is key for a safe and comfortable ride… and fall. There’s nothing worse than coming off the bike, cutting your leg, or worse – breaking it. An injury like this could put you out of action for weeks, even months.
So we’ve rounded up the best knee protection for all mountain trail riders…
Highly acclaimed and arguably the best brand for body armour is POC sports. From their extensive range of protection, we’ve chosen the VPD knee pads which are suitable for all mountain and downhill riding.
The slip-on design has silicone cuffs as well as a loop and lock Velcro system, so these bad boys aren’t going anywhere. Don’t be deceived by the soft feel and bendiness of the pad itself, because these POC VPD’s are hard-wearing, and they can take a good bashing on the trails.
