    Not that stealthy though. But otherwise perfect

    I went from veggie knees (more stealthy, but didnt stay in place) to kyle straits and would buy them again and again and again!

    sorry, scott grenade pads are a step up from kyle striats.

    661 veggie pads are awful. Kyle straits OK but I find after a while they wear and become very uncomfortable, expect to need replace them every year.

    The Kyle straits aren’t that bad, saved me from many big hits. Most popular knee pad by a mile. They’ll be fine.

    Does anyone know if the Kyle Straits much warmer in the summer than the EVO D30?

    Jedi, I tried on a pair after you recommended them so strongly on Bikeradar, seemed good… I couldn’t compare them side to side, but they seemed like they were almost identical externally, do you is it a very good copy or is it actually the same outer just with a different inner pad?

    The pad felt stiffer- I could feel it pressing with bent knees- but that doesn’t mean it translates on the bike, i take it you’ve had no bother with that?

    Not to be a cheapskate but they cost exactly twice as much, never felt the protection of the Straits is lacking at all so I’m not sure I’d pay that but they do seem good.

    I wasn’t sure if the knee hole was the same, it didn’t feel right but then I know how my brain goes sometimes so I ignored it 😉

    “when u bale… “
    ‘when you bail’ surely?

    I never found my kyle straits comfortable
    I just find them irratating to wear, though I suspect I would with any knee pad

    Having used Kyle Straits of all types for years ive recently got some of these: Clicky Light and comfy and seem to offer better protection (although ive not tested that yet!) certainly a worthy alternative.
