The Demon Soft Cap XD3O snowboard/ski knee pads are a great option if you are looking for an ultra lightweight option for knee padding, to help absorb the tumbles out on the slopes. It's extreme low profile is perfect to wear under your snowboard/ski pants.
D3O is a soft flexible material that will shape to your body comfortably. The big change happens when it takes an impact, all the polymers lock together protecting you against the impact. This means that the harder the impact, the greater the resistance to the force.
The front caps consist of a Lightweight dual density foam front cap with a layer of D3O padding underneath. For extra comfort, these knee pads are made with neoprene, and lycra for support, sweat dispersion and added durability. These knee pads do not have straps and have strands of beaded silicone running the diameter of the inside to keep them in place while you move.

Using D3O will ensure that you get superb impact protection even with it's ultra low profile, lightweight construction but is not intended for heavy falls on hard surfaces but great for falls on the slopes.

Review: I went snowboarding fro the first time some weeks ago, and I fell allot. My bum was black and blue and my knees ached for along time. So I decided to take the plunge and get some protection. Best decision I have made to date. These pads are perfect, they protect me from all but the hardest falls and give me confidence to try new tricks or moves, because I know if I fall I will have a cushioned landing. The pads cushion really well, and I have no fear of throwing myself to the floor, my knees are seriously happy I got these. They really do absorb allot of impact, after a full days riding and falling of course your knees are going to be tired, even with pads, but these certainly take allot of the pain and discomfort out of it. In all I love these pads, they fit snug and comfy and breath pretty well, I do get a bit sweaty behind the knee, but am never uncomfortable. Ace product, get them!

Comfortable knee protection
The D3O knee protectors from Demon are quite comfortable. Normally they are soft and they get harder to absorb impacts when needed. The external material is also very good - the pads sit firmly on the knee and don't move around.
Totally worth it!!!
Great product - high quality, really good impact protection, comfortable. Knee pads have silicone strips to keep pads in place, material on backside of knee pad is thinner for comfort, and gel-filled pads work great to absorb impact and at the same time do not restrict movement.
Knee pads of highest quality. Fixed well on a naked leg. Bought the same for my husband. Product of five stars!
Purchased these knee pads as a gift for my girlfriend who has been tuning in her 180's and learning more freestyle. Last season she had a couple of knee impacts on the harder slopes so decided she wanted some knee pads that could be worn under her snowboard pants. These are the dogs!! Very comfortable fit and very flexible. The soft gel gives no restriction but on impact it becomes hard and absorbs the majority of the force. These are great for all snowboarders of all abilities. The only downside is that now she has more confidence, she appears to be getting way better than me!! Think it's time I purchased a pair for myself. Another great purchase from Absolute Snow...we will keep coming back to you guys. Cheers Phill
A little bit wary at first because of the price tag but as soon as I had that first fall and didn't hardly feel a thing I knew my money was well spent. They stay tight around the knee without suffocating them aswell. All in all a brilliant product.
Liked these very nice
Gripped well Padding was good Easy to use
Great gear, great service
Was looking for some knee protection after a recent injury and after some looking found these bad boys. Do exactly as they say and have saved my dodgy knees after a couple of spectacular bails. They're super comfy, and after a minute or so you forget your wearing them. Nice and flexible which is handy for boarding in comfort. 10/10 Oh and they arrived on pretty much precisely the hour they said they would. Top Marks
protective snowboard shorts
These are the lightest protective snowboard shorts. They do not feel the body, but you know, the protection of "important places" 100%
Didn't feel a thing!
Great knee pads, fell over onto my knees on an icy patch and felt nothing. If you want knee pads, get these!
