They are pretty much part of the MTBer's uniform, here's our pick of the best mountain bike knee pads deals from the best online cycling retailers.
Never mind the quantity, feel the quality of these mountain bike knee pads deals; at least 20% discount AND all available in common sizes. Knee pads are the new helmets. What we mean by this is that it’s now standard to wear knee pads just like it is standard to wear a helmet.
Back in the early days of mountain biking the only protection seen on normal riders was a helmet – sometimes riders didn’t even bother with them! Nowadays knee pads are no longer an unusual sight on trail riders. Indeed, it’s becoming odd to see riders not wearing knee pads.
Regardless whether you like flying down steep, technical trails or you are a rider that takes a more sedate pace, some form of knee protection while riding is a good idea. Even the best riders or the most careful make mistakes and, while most accidents don’t always end up with a trip to A&E, the last thing you want is to curtail a ride because you’ve gashed a knee open.
