lol, thanks - blue and yellow husky = me ;)

 

Knox - yeah, they are pretty sick - I don't have a pair myself (yet) but you can get them from Adventure Rider in Northgate Island, Cape Town... www.advrider.co.za

 

Retail for less than R500

 

661 style knee pads:

I know, sucks right? Also, AFAIK no 661 importer?

 

Which new fox pads you referring to?

just had a look at that website, and they have interesting body armour: low profile, covers spine, forearm and shoulder protection, but without the bulk of say a 661 vapor suit.

I'm tempted to test that knee pad, but i see it really only has one strap just below the knee to it keep it in place. hmmm... Kyle straits have 2 straps, yet it can still wiggle off during a bumping ride, and especially on impact.

 

but i'm threadjacking. soz! :) thanks for the links.
