Thor Force Knee Guards The Thor Force Knee Guard offers extensive coverage, great comfort, and exceptional performance. Designed for riders who require more coverage than conventional kneeguards, but less support than expensive kneebraces, the Force Knee Guard is in a class by itself. Utilizing a floating, molded kneecup thats encapsulated in durable Aramid material our innovative dual-pivot system mimics the action of the knee without the bulky mechanics that can get hung up on your bike. So youll feel more like youre wearing standard knee guards, and less like a human robot. The Force Knee Guards are also anatomically correct, so theres a specific left and right side which match the contour of your legs for improved comfort and reduced chafing Features Perforated Airprene chassis for support and secure fit Extended thigh protection Impact resistant, polyethylene knee cup is encapsulated in durable Aramid fiber for maximum coverage Dual pivot system mimics anatomical action of the knee Custom inverted post latching system Asymmetrical design for comfort and fit S/M fits most riders up to 57 tall L/XL fits most riders taller than 57 2XL/3XL fits most riders with larger than average legs CE approved Sold as a pair

Just ordered these hoping for something I could wear under loose fit jeans. They look like they would really hold up and would provide a lot of protection, but they are just too bulky for me. They fit under my jeans, but when I sat down the knee area of the jeans were really tight. You could ride with the combo, but it would wear through the sides of your jeans really quickly.
If it were just the bulkiness it wouldn't be an issue, most people probably have some loose riding pants they like (my jeans are very relaxed fit though). The main problem is, these guards are very hot. The wrap around fabric is like a thick neoprene knee sleeve. My leg was sweating within just a few minutes, and I was just walking around inside my house. I can't imagine wearing these in the summer or even a warm spring or fall day.
Since the plastics are pretty much solid, I don't see how being on the bike would help airflow-wise. Maybe if you're cruising along at highway speeds some air would get through, but offroad no way.
I wish I had a local place where I could have tried them on. It cost $16 to ship these back the Revzilla.
No, I do not recommend this product.
