Fox Launch Pro Knee/Shin Guard extents the excellent protection of the Launch Pro Knee product over a greater area. Features include abrasion resistant panel on right side for additional durability near the chain ring areas and wrap around hook and loop enclosures to make it easy to take on and off while maintaining a secure fit that is enhanced by pre-curved ergonomic design. The Launch Pro is also equipped with an ergonomic plastic knee cup and shin panel with Kevlar fabric coverage. The Fox Knee/Shin Guard is made from perforated neoprene offering comfort and breath-ability!
Go big or go home, but don’t go home for the season. The Fox Launch Pro Knee Pad will make sure that you get to go home after going big, rather than going to the hospital. Silicone grip behind the knee keeps the pad from slipping down your leg or shifting in flight, and the pre-curved ergo fit sits comfortably without bunching. The perforated neoprene breathes better than Michel Phelps in the final 50 meters, and the elastic straps on the top and bottom could give your old skate pads a lesson in comfort.
I am a creature of all seasons. So when i set out to buy knee pads i need something that i could use on both the snow park and on mountain biking trails (jumps and hardcore single tracks). Well these Fox Launch Pads are simply perfect!! when i first received them they were super tight, but after using them 3-5 times while snowboarding they broke in and now fit perfectly!! Also i just starting mountain biking with them and have to say that even after a full years use they still stay in place and don't move no matter what!! I have taken some nasty falls with these and i have yet to walk away crippled. On last thing: I am 5'8" I70lbs athletic build; i went with the S/M size. Again... they were snug at first but fit perfectly now after break in!!!
Great knee pads that do the job. They are super tough an take punishment well. I go down fairly frequently and these babies keep my knees from looking like hamburger. The pre-curved fit is great and I don't mind putting them on before heading out to ride. These can get a little warm in the summer but not unbareable. I have rocked the LTD Lopes, Alpinestars Moab and by far these are the best I have used. Be aware that you have zero shin protection. My shins are frequently scabbed from wadding up but its not enough to keep me from wearing these.
Comfortable and they don't slip. a little hot for xc but provide great protection for DH. Forget there on most of the time. Two seasons of use and they still look good. I even use them snowboarding because they work so well. I use them longboarding because i'm a beginner and i fall a lot. They work well but they will get trashed out if you wear them over your pants. shouldnt complain though because there made for mtb and do a great job for that. Highly Recommend.
As usual if you are bigger then your average midget you may know what I am about to say. These come in two sizes S\M and L\XL. I am 6' tall with kinda big legs. I wear the L\XL, they fit better then my Kyle Straits but still are a little small above my knee and bunch a little in the back. Bottom line, better fit then the 661 and feels like more protection. I wear then all the time.
I 'm returning them for a size L, but even with the wrong size they still were relatively comfortable. I heard that they were designed to be in a peddling position but I didn't really understand it until I felt it. Don't let your first minutes walking around in them decide if they're the right fit . They get roomier once your feet are pedaling.
These fit me well and are very comfortable. I bought the L/XL and they fit very snug (secure). My legs aren't huge, so I imagine that these would be two small for some. For me, they're perfect. Fortunately, I haven't tested them in a crash yet. They feel really solid, though, and seem like they would protect me well in a crash.
I have enough scars on my legs and it was time to get some protection. I love these pads. They are comfortable to wear and don't slip while riding. They give me a lot more confidence riding in rough terrain. Luckily, I haven't tested them on impact yet, but they look and feel like they will do the job when needed.
The Fox Launch Knee Pads are well made. They have a solid plastic guard over the knee cap with lots of additional softer padding to protect below, above and to the side of the knee. The best thing, I put these on and they stay right on my knee when riding hard.
I can't believe how comfortable these kneed pads are! I've had them a short time but I find myself wearing them on trail rides in addition to shuttling and the park. I think it's the deep cup for the knee that makes them stay in place so well. I highly recommend!
These knee pads fit well and aren't "grabby" at all. Nice pads that, for all intents and purposes, appear well made. Only time will tell on wear and tear and how long the straps maintain their elasticity. I'm not at all disappointed in the purchase. So far, so good!
It's too tight, and does not fit. My legs are large (I run, bike, and climb) and this just doesn't cut it. The opening on the back needs to be bigger. It's a case of where less is more... as in more comfort. Maybe it's something you get used too, but it's not for me.
