September's Top Vital MTB Member Reviewer Award
Every month we award the Top User Reviewer with a little prize, and this month Jenson USA pitched in another $100 gift card! Vital member stepot took home top honors in October after writing an in-depth piece on his new kneepads. Here's a recap:
7iDP Sam Hill Knee Pad - "Yeah, they are comfortable. They do breath pretty well too. In fact I would say that out of what I've tried so far these are probably the best of most worlds. They're breathable like the Alpinestars but have more side protection. They're hotter than the aforementioned but much cooler than the ION's. All in all I'd say these are a good compromise pad for riders looking for a little more than just a knee cap. Oh, and the recommended large fit me pretty well too (lower silicone bands are somewhat loose but ok).
The downsides are definitely: 1. Price. 2. The question of protection...
I'd be putting on something burlier for the rare occasion where I participate in park riding or shuttles, but overall I can recommend these pads as a fairly pedal friendly alternative that'll hopefully be able to stand up to bigger offs." - Read more»
Big congrats to stepot! Thanks for helping out the riding scene with your thoughts on these products.
