Two things you should know about these
It's great to have extra knee armor like these, but having crashed in a similar product, they will begin to slide out of position after the primary impact. They also don't include much armoring on the sides which is kind of surprising. Just know these aren't a replacement for leathers
But my biggest issue with these is that they don't include pre-adjust strap snaps. People wear these things to add protection to jeans in normal situations. So you get to the bar, you tear away the velcro on each strap, and there are 6 velcro straps. To put them back on, you thread them through the loops, back around, etc. This is anooying, especially if you have multiple stops to make.
Other manufacturers secure a male snap to the straps, and a female to the guards, so each time you use them, they snap right back into place. This seems to make a lot more sense. Why Dainese missed this a total mystery

Yes, I recommend this product.
