7 IDP Sam Hill Knee pad


7 IDP Sam Hill Knee pad review


Price as reviewed:


This is 7iDP Sam Hill signature knee pad, so obviously the multi-winning DH and enduro warrior has input into the design.

>>> Best mountain bike knee pads 2019

Since Sam Hill focuses exclusively on Enduro this knee pad has to strike the right balance between comfort and protection. 7idp has achieved this by using a lightweight four-way stretch mesh chassis, combined with a removable Sastec pad and a full perimeter of smaller pads to help stabilise the central knee cap and offering good lateral protection. Sastec is a self-hardening material, a bit like D3o and its removable because the Sastec is affected by temperature, so when wash the pad it can reduce its effectiveness.

The Sastec is pre-shaped but like self-hardening materials it deforms easily to your knee’s profile.
