Kinda what I was thinking. Not really different from wearing knee guards under jeans but easier to put on and take off.

The real downside is that having the jean material under them would make them more likely to twist during a crash. Probably be fine just dragging a knee but in a crash they might roll.

I think these are great. I am searching for a solution to commute to work (business casual attire) and this could really help.

I don't know, I tend to wear armored jeans around town with kneepads underneath. I've actually ruiend a couple pair of jeans by touching them down on the occassional unplanned spirited ride. These would have saved them. Of course that was my signal to ratchet things back down to street savy levels. Having sliders available all the the time might not be a such a goood thing for me, but hey better the gear than no gear.

+1 I wear Kevlar lined jeans when I ride to work, but the knee pads are a pain to get in and out of them. I tried strap on pads underneath the jeans, but the jeans are too fitted to wear them comfortably. Having said that at $120 per pair I may just stick with my $25 AStars ones !!

Back in the day I use to wear the first version of the ICON knee guards under my jeans. I use them almost daily for two years until the elastic band and Velcro rip apart.

Glad to see ICON came with more safety/protection products. Love their advertising. Before them nobody cater to the squid crowd. LOL

Your commute involves cranking the bike so far over that you're able to put a knee down?

Not anything I'd use, but I think it's better than nothing for the jean wearing crowd.

I don't know that they would shift anyless than the armor in most overpants which fit quite loosely. I might consider them for my commutes, not that I expect to drag a knee, but becasue it will be easier to use than putting knee pads on under my work slacks. Anything that makes gear easier to use, makes gear more likely to be used.

Not exactly what I was going for. What I really meant is that it'd be good to have knee pads I could strap on over my work pants so that I get some kind of protection and may actually be able to justify commuting to work. Maybe I'm looking at this product the wrong way.

Then get knee pads. Those are NOT knee pads.

$15 A* pads work fine.

Any amount of protection you get form any gear on the street is false sense of security. Once you realize some idiot driver can take you out dead at any moment despite what protective equipment you have on, the better off you will be.

Drag knees at the track where we have an amperlamps ready.

Very smart particularly in comparison to plain jeans. I think the slider is for show, but the CE underneath is a few a idea for impact. And the leather up front for abrasion protection. Smart smart.
