It's easier to push it when you're armored up, but wear too much gear and you won't be able to bend your knees and elbows, which might limit your shredding just a bit. 7 Protection's Control Knee Guards give you the confidence that comes with a hard knee pad, but their innovative design allows the freedom of movement you need to pedal, hike, and rip without restriction. Over the kneecap, a one millimeter Curv hard cap protects against direct impacts, while a surrounding double layer of perforated polygon foam helps save you from pedal strikes and abrasion. Pedal Flex zones at the back of the knee help the Control stay in place while you're pedaling, and 7 Protection's innovative Centre Strap adjustment uses two hook and loop straps that pull from the center to the sides of the knee, letting you fine tune the Control's fit for non slip comfort. Breathable mesh around the Pedal Flex zones helps you stay reasonably sweat free, and the Control's lightweight design means you'll be able to wear it all day, during lift laps or enduro races, without feeling like you're hauling around extra gear.
