Fox Launch Shorty Knee Guard -

Summer heat and mellow rides mean you need less protection, but don't be stupid—you still need your knees. Strap on the hard shell Fox Shorty Knee pads to experience not only cooling breezes, but less blood gushing from your leg when you dig deep into that trailside boulder or deviously positioned babyhead. X-Up straps keep these guards in place. Otherwise, they'd be pretty useless.

Fox Launch Shorty Knee Guard Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

These definatley serve their purpose. After the first few miles, you forget you're wearing them. Then about 7 miles in, you remember due to minor chafing on the backside of your knees. However, if you want great knee and upper-shin protection on the downhills, these are great. I fell and sliced the side of the knee guard and definately protected soft tissue. They stay in place after miles of riding which is important because you want them in place for the unexpected falls. I do wish I had the full length version though. After nine stiches at the base of my shin, these obviously provided no protection due to their Shorty nature. I guess, I would say, if you're going to wear this type of protection you should get the full length version. Or, just don't fall...but where's the fun in that!

Ya.. that's right. After taking a big crash 8 miles into a 25 mile ride and having to super glue a gash on my shin closed (really needed stitches but hey, ya use what you have) I decided to invest in some armor.
I'd give these a 4 on a 5 scale. Pluses: They are priced right and stay in place and fit well. Seems like when you wear armor you never need it.
Minuses: Still leaves a little of that lower shin exposed but all prtection is a compromise. Chicks dig scars...these prevent them.

These are great guards. You can wear them all day because they are comfortable. They dont slide around! they really stay in place. The shine guard come about half way down your shine, it helps in keeping things cool, but on a ride my front tire through up a rock and hit me in the lower shine, but that doesnt happen very often. I would highly recommend these or even the full length ones.

I love these things! I guess I am little person sized from the knees down to my ankles so the full length versions of these were way too long. They cut into my the top of my feet. These fit perfect. Very comfortable and breathable. Worth every penny

Negative Reviews:

These are super comfortable. thats about it.
As soon as these make any sort of contact the X-Up straps pop right off. Making it awkward to pedal with the strap flopping around. And if you hit the ground they are only good for intitial contact after that the pop off and your kness and shins get all ground up

not comfy, don't stay put. friend gave em to me for free and i'm not sure whether to pass them on and curse someone else with these things or just throw em away.
