KNOX Cross Guard Knee Guards

Any body own these, or know who sells them locally?

http://stores.sportbiketrackgear.com/Detail.bok?no=4152

Thinking about picking up a set of the short version..
KNOX cross knee LG


I'm currently using the EVS' which are nice and comfy and offer a lot of protection.. but I want to ride with my Sidi boots instead of my Timberlands.

and the EVSs are just too long to be comfy.. I figured the shorter KNOXs would go to the top of the boot, or just inside it.

Thoughts?

I can't wear them in my leathers, the knees are too tight.

Sucks? Why? I have the 'option' version too. I like them.. just a bit too long to wear with full height boots.

You're talking about these, right?

The KNOX cross short version?? Know of a local dealer?


My leathers have built in stuff so that's no problem for me.. I want them for under my jeans while wearing boots.

ART,


yeah I have a set of those.... but they dont work for me. quality *durability* is FINE.. but fitment..not for me. more than likely its my legs, so i cant completley blame the product.

they hover midpoint or below my kneecap, even when fastened down. its probably more fault on my skinny bird legs.
