View Full Version : Dainese Knee Guard Air
07-26-2009, 07:13 AM
Anyone using these? (http://www.dainese.com/us_en/multisport-winter/snow-knee-guard-air.html?gender=2&destinazione_uso=41&cat=75&subcat=83)
I'm concerned that the piece below the knee cap protector might interfere with the top on my boot. Looks like the lower strap is high enough up so that it could be trimmed back if necessary. Any user feedback appreciated.

Seriously? Are you taking up rails Jon? Why would you want to wear any more crap then you already do? Turning into Roboskier???
I have never hit my knees while alpine skiing. Unless you are taking up telewhacking or park skiing there is no need.

Strange, the link works fine for me.
I twatted my left knee cap years ago & then landed it on a rock in March & it's given me grief ever since even though there's nothing on the x-ray so I'm trying to protect it as it's given me problems when driving etc.
Anyway's I've answered my own question as a pair arrived today & they've gone straight back as they're uncomfortable & waaay too long when I put my boots on.

Those knee guards are thick. Peps will notice your wearing them unless your wearing XXXL size pants. I got a pair, wore them a couple times under my size XL pants when skiing/jibbing and they are a big hassle to wear. Id say go for the Black Diamond TeleKneesis Kneepad. They are thinner, cheaper, offer equal protection & more movement range. They are just plain better in my opinion: http://www.blackdiamondequipment.com/en-us/shop/ski/skis/telekneesis-kneepad

The link works for you, has a GB cookie in it I think.
If you want to some light protection that works get some Arc Teryx knee pads. Very light, flexible and should offer the ammount of protection you would require. I was tempted with some knock of ones on Ebay listed as Navy Seal knee pads, very cheap.

skiwithcharlie, thanks for the heads up on the Telekneesis pads. I've tried half a dozen different makes this week & they are by far the lowest profile, flexible & comfortable - & nowhere near the most expensive. :cool:
