Setting out to find lightweight pads shouldn’t mean that they are lacking in, well, the padding department. With the progression we’ve seen in a wide variety of materials in the bike world, we have started to expect more, from less, and Sweet Protection has its name in the game in that department. It should not be a surprise that Sweet’s Knee Pads have the ability to capture our interest, packing in serious protection from its proprietary SAS-TEC SCL2 padding, which uses a 3D constructed visco-elastic polymer that manages to stay soft at the same time as we pedal, and firm up on affect to take in shock. SAS-TEC keeps things lightweight, at the same time as breathable perforated neoprene makes up the remainder of the pad to let your sweat move away at the same time as you ride, too. Since moisture-wicking will only get you so far, Sweet Protection crafted the Knee Pads so that all padding will also be removed, so you’ll be able to toss the sleeves in the wash without stressing about what it might do to the padding you’re counting on.
