You can find them easily at CG or one of MH's sponsors...I know 2 Wheel Toys stocks them.

Also look into EVS...they offer a wider array of knee guards although they aren't as stocked at brick stores.

There was a really good/old thread on here on why we should wear knee guards, and because of that thread I always wear them when wearing jeans. Your knees are one of the first things that hit the ground if you're going down.


Awesome, thanks a lot for the info! I'll look for the thread, tried searching from my phone but it's not cooperating.

Just try a bunch of different ones.... everyone's legs are different, wear different fitting jeans, and prefer certain things. Look in the motocross section
With the Astar ones, wear them on the opposite leg. On a dirt bike, they hang over the inside of your knee to stop them from banging the bike, on a street bike, you'll want the extra protection on the outside.

My legs are small enough that I wear the youth Astars, and can tuck them into the top of me sidi boots.
