- bike TIP value for money 04/2015 - Thanks to the Tectonic_Fit principle, the K_PACT knee protectors offer both maximum freedom of movement and optimal knee protection. The main parts of the protectors, which means the upper and the lower knee element, are only joined with each other at the sides of the knee joint. This allows the elements to slide past each other like tectonic plates when pedalling. The protectors always stay close to the leg and do not slip. This makes these knee protectors not only suitable for downhill, but also for enduro and all-mountain use: In the front knee area, the padding of the German manufacturer SAS-TEC offers outstanding cushioning characteristics (the same material has already been used for motorbike protective clothing for years). Asymmetrically arranged EVA side pads protect the knee joint when banging against the top tube or in case of lateral shocks. The ION Anti_Smell Feature keeps the pads fresh for longer thanks to a SANITIZED treatment. ION has already been successfully using this treatment for wetsuits for years: It prevents bacteria growth and makes sure the neoprene does not smell musty. The new K_Pact_Select come in an open design so that the protectors can easily be folded around the legs. In this way, there's no need to put off the shoes anymore.
