These semi rigid knee pads developed by Demon are perfect for skateboarding. Originally designed for snowboarding, in terms of stiffness and impact protection, they fall half way between typical hard shell SKATEBOARD KNEE PADS and the softer RUCANOR SUPER SMASH knee pads, originally designed for volleyball, which we also sell. Everything in life seems to be a compromise. With knee pads the softer they are, the more comfortable they tend to be but you do require some stiffness and rigidity to help spread the impact of a fall. With these knee pads, Demon seem to have got the balance just right!
These knee pads work really well as undercover padding, so long as your jeans aren't skin tight, you should be able to fit these pads underneath your clothes no worries.
The price is for a pair.
High density shock absorbing semi rigid foam, for flexibility with protection
Side cut outs to assist flex and bend
Open behind the knees for maximum comfort
Elasticated straps above and below the knee - no uncomfy velcro or all in one tube arrangements
With a STRAIGHT leg, measure around your knee cap at the middle most point ie exactly where there is a crease in the skin.
