ION Protection K_LITE Knee Guards
The K_LITE Knee Guards are light, breathable, pedal-friendly and have a very slim outline. As the human body is neither cylindrical nor symmetrical ION disregarded flat 2D patterns and instead used their expertise in tailoring body-fitting wetsuits to shape anatomic fitting pads for a natural riding position, they call this an Ionic fit.
These guards provide good impact protection by combining thin SAS-TEC paddings with a hidden hardcap (to distribute loads in case of a crash). The main SAS-TEC performance padding is famous for its cushioning characteristics; the 3D-protectors are made of a visco elastic soft foam consisting of thousands and thousands of tiny foam bubbles, offering incredible shock absorption values. They are multi-impact compliant, adapt to body contours and are heat resistant.
The unique Snug Loop construction (skin neoprene belt running from the back of the calf, over the kneecap back to the calf, again) keeps the pads in place, even on those super long tours. This combined with extra wide silicone ribbons on top and bottom, means velcro is not necessary anymore. The guards feature an elastic and lightweight mesh fabric for optimal ventilation and freedom of movement.
For additional breathability the guards are constructed with a perforated neoprene fabric called Airprene. Also used in the construction is a synthetic fibre called Power Aramid. Originally developed by DuPont, today it’s used for a range of applications from bulletproof helmets via tires to bow strings. It offers outstanding tear resistance and tensile strength.
The guards have also undergone ION’s Anti-Smell Sanitized® treatment to provide long lasting freshness.
