    And just to be totally clear (for the dullards like me :wink: ) are you looking for pads that can be worn separately (i.e. just knee and just shin) that can also be combined or is an all in one OK?
  • Dainese knee, shin, ankle for DH.

    I have some 661 Race Lite Knee/Shin guards (2009). i have found them comfortable to wear all day, and really do save your legs. i reccomend them.

    i would recommend 661 pads, i have been using mine (race lites) for around a year and a half, they have saved me many times including today and they saved me once again when i stacked it fairly hard while hitting a drop over at my local trail,
  • Hi there, as a relative beginner to this MTB lark, I went over the handlebars one night and promptly bought a set of cheap pads just in case I decided to carry on with the lark. Well I have carried on, and I've worn Brand X pads (knee and shin/elbow and foreArm) the last 15 times I've been out. Never found them a bother and good value too.
