Hi all,
after making some search I ended up with this guards - but unfortunately I didn't find any user reviews and impression....
can some one help me with the decision and give a review...
or maybe an alternative option for Knee-Shin guards???
thanks.

    I bought these last year as all previous knee/shin pads I owned would slip down, and didn't have enough padding above the knee resulting in some nasty cuts above the knee in a crash as the pads get dragged down when hitting the ground :-o so I spent a fair bit of time looking at various designs and chose the IXS Cleaver. They don't slip at all and as they have plenty of padded material above the knee I'm pretty confident they would protect the knees well in a crash. But fortunately not had a chance to test this yet!
    Hope that helps.

    Light, comfortable and stay in place. Expensive but worth it.
