Favourite feature?Easy to put on and take off. Not too hot
Least favourite feature?Tend to slide down when wet with sweat.
Good Fitting Leg Protection. Tend to slide on long rides.
I bought the Fox Launch Knee/Shin Guards as a "do-it-all" protection as I want to protect my knees but also my shin skin which after 20 years of flat pedal related injuries has been reduced to nothing... I found the guards quite light and the fitting really good, plus they are easy to put on and take off (practical before a long non technical climb). On technical climbs, they work well and don't restrict your legs. They are surprisingly not too hot (I have ridden with them on very hot days - 30+ degres without suffering). After a couple of hours, when wet with sweat they tend to fall down and need to be adjusted quite often. If you need full protection and ride for more than 2 hours at a time, a full fitted (sleeve-like) system could be better.
Great hard protection over the knee and good coverage over the shin area.Have not crashed yet but im sure they will assist in avoiding an injury. Comfortable to wear when I was riding XC and they did not move around on me. Easy to walk in up steep hills. Easy to put on with the three velcro straps at the back. Legs did not get hot in them but it was not a real hot summer day.
