One of the many uphill battles mountain bikers have to face is finding a knee pad that adequately protects without baking the knees in excess body heat. This year DAKINE released two knee pad designs — the all-mountain Slayer and the more rugged Hellion — that help bikers cool down with breathable Ariaprene.
Ariaprene features four-way stretch, water resistance and durability within a lightweight range of thickness. The DAKINE knee pads merge Ariaprene with an open-backed design, a layer of breathable mesh and Polygiene technology for effective air circulation and odor control. Crossover elastic straps match Ariaprene’s flexible fit, making sure the Slayer and Hellion stay in place, even on the most treacherous rides.
