ION's new K-Lite Zip offers knee protection for enduro-oriented riding (EN 1621-1:2012 / L1). The removable K-L1 Lite pad provides more than just abrasion protection and handles light to medium impacts easily. The pre-shaped pads follow the natural form of the knee and offer an ergonomic fit. A no-sew abrasion-resistant layer on the front enables the sliding ability of the pads, so they don't ride up in contact with the ground. The extremely durable and tightly woven Aramid material adds up to the sturdiness. Another contribution to protection is the EVA side padding which absorbs impacts from the sides. If you prefer to pedal without pads or expect long uphill passages you can easily take the knee pads off thanks to the lateral zipper. You can open it all the way so you can take them off hassle-free.
No sew abrasion element
Aramid is an extremely robust and sturdy fiber. This amped up version more tightly woven than it's predecessor. Thanks to it tear-resistance and tenstile strength it finds application in all kinds of protective gear and keeps up with anything from sharp rocks to high-speed crashes.

Flessibili e traspiranti

Nonostante l'elevata protezione, sono flessibili e traspiranti. Sono l'ideale per tour enduro pedalati, con frequenti rilanci. Lo strap posteriore le tiene in sede. Ottima la zip per mettere/togliere velocemente.
