Dainese Knee V E1 N Guards 4.7 5 26 26
Feels very comfortable - BUT - VERY SMALL in sizing I got the Knee V E1 N to replace some standard shin/knee guards Shift brand that works well, but I feel doesn't offer enough level of protection compared to the Knee V E1 N with the Knee having EN rating, the Shift does not. I also have the EVS Epic Impact Knee/Shin guards for when I ride mostly off-road. The EVO are great, but too big for my summer 1-piece Olympia Stealth riding suit to cover. The Shift Knee guards fit fine under the pants. If I wear my separate over pants, either fits (Dubinky pants). The Dainese Knee feels great, the patella plate is perftectly lined up. The foam feels wonderfully soft. My only complaint (even about the EVS) is that for the right length top/bottom - the straps are TOO short. I have the L/XL in the Epic. I have very muscular legs/and large calves compared to most people that are 5'10" I supposed. 32" inseam. The straps on the Knee are very stretchy, but to get the Velcro back around to latch requires me to pull the strap so tight that it made my calf fall asleep. I am going to see if my wife can fit in these or else return them for a similar product. Maybe we could fix it by making our own velcro attachment extender....? If they fit better they would have gotten 4.5 stars - they feel great against the front of the leg. Straps could be a little wider for the back of the upper leg strap. I can make a pad for those though. July 23, 2015
Good product! Great looking, quality material, & comfortable. Didn't give them 5 stars as cumbersome to put on & take off (should have used a hook & velcro system, similar to the fox titan pro knee guards) and seem a bit narrow leaving part of the lateral knee exposed. July 23, 2015
A very good buy Seem to be well made and I expect to stand up to many years of use, they are ventilated well and I have never felt any warmer wearing them vs with out them on the bike. wouldn't want to walk around in them for long they do get hot with no air flow, but on the bike I forget I have them on. They fit well under jeans, but they don't hide at all, not that you would expect them to. the only nit pick I have with them will only come in to play if you wear them against bare skin, I would like to see the male Velcro switched to the other side so it can't rub against your skin but if you take an extra half second when putting them on to make sure its well aligned you never have that problem.

Great looking knee/shin protection Right out of the box, these (to me) look and feel like they are worth every penny, and I hope I never ever have to find out if they hold up to how good these look and feel. Excellent quality, as expected from Dainese. Heavy duty stitching of the composite to the inner padding. Padding is nice on the shins. Slimmer profile than my other knee guards (I wear them over my pants) and the edges are all covered, so no worry about scratching my tank. Great ventilation and comfortable to wear, very happy with this product! July 14, 2015
Exellent Protection I bought these over a year ago and still wear them a lot.. Covers the knee and shin well. They are still comfortable and stay put. Great product! Especially for a woman rider...the fit is great. July 11, 2015
Good overall I ride on the more aggressive side and wanted a little more protection. These provide that and fit nicely under jeans, however, they are somewhat small. June 11, 2015
Pretty good, better than nothing Bought these cause I wanted something to protect my knees as I just wear kevlar jeans and wanted more protection and I seen these with the shin guard as well thought bloody oath I'll give em a go, when I got them I originally strapped on the inside of my jeans and was adjusting them a little bit through-out the ride and was rubbing a bit on my skin but I put them on the outside of my jeans and was pretty good, haven't come off yet but I'm sure these will hold up yet the side of my knee is still exposed so not too sure there but is better than not having any protection. Give them a go doesn't hurt having extra protection Plus you can't beat Dainese June 10, 2015
Nice protection, excellent value I use these under my riding pants. Putting them on takes about 30s per leg. They can be worn for hours on and off the bike without a problem and they don't hinder walking. Unlike the typical protectors integrated to riding pants, these stay in place and cover the knee and shin in every leg configuration. The sides of the knee are not as well covered as the front, but that seems to be the case with most knee protectors. June 8, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
A S: I needed knee protection that was easy to put on and take off. These will be used for my commute to school and should fit perfectly in my backpack(kriega)! Jul 23, 2015
William J: For Summer with shorts or under my riding pants in place of the knee protection that can shift...also lower profile and better style than the Stryker pads I sent back which by the way is a flawless process with Revzilla Jul 22, 2015
michael w: "I'm looking for good knee protection (was in an accident and had damage to my knees). I believe this will be a good product." Jul 7, 2015
Mark R: It's extremely hot here in Las Vegas, NV and wanted protection when wearing shorts and riding shoes. Already have a pair of Dainese Hard Shorts E1, so these would actually provide more protection than my riding jeans with D30 knee pads.

Hector R: I needed some good protection Jul 2, 2015
Richard F: full coverage from knee to shin but with a lower profile Jun 7, 2015
Gary S: Need a low profile knee guard to wear under my Scorpion Covert Jeans because the armor I purchased to the Covert Jeans was seldom in the right place to protect my knees. I tried Icon Field Armor Stryker Knee Guard and they were to bulky. May 30, 2015
Ibinabo O: Buying it for me. My first choice, Icon Field Armor Stryker Knee Guard, will be too big for me. Bought that for some friends instead. May 27, 2015
A L: Great shin and knee guard protection hard to walk around in though... May 19, 2015
Joseph F: its recommended by my friend..thank you May 18, 2015
David B: Was looking for good knee and shin protection. Can be worn on outside of jeans. Difficult to get leg through loops but straps can be pulled out through loop holes and just wrapped around leg by twisting the strap for easy on and off. Good solid impact protection. May 11, 2015
Ievgen S: Excellent protection, comfortable, takes a 30 secs to put on, better than any included knee protection for average priced pants. May 1, 2015
A S: To be honest.. It matches my gloves I'm getting and the reviews are pretty high. Apr 28, 2015
Jason R: protection under regular clothes Apr 27, 2015
Dennis B: excellent brand Apr 22, 2015
Ed t: Seems like a really good value Apr 20, 2015
Michael M: Always protect your body by any means necessary. Apr 6, 2015
Benjamin A C: shin guards appear longer than most, and there is a third strap above the knee. I want them to overlap the boots, tucking them in. The top strap is needed if I choose to wear them outside the jeans so they stay put. My background is motocross, I'm used to being well protected, which carries over to street riding. Kevlar jeans alone leave me feeling unprotected. Adding armored riding shorts underneath, and knee guards inside or out should fix that. Apr 2, 2015
Jason N: For that extra protection on days when I just want to wear regular pants. Mar 23, 2015
Patrick J: Because I feel naked without any protection for knee. Mar 23, 2015
H A: I need protection that I can wear under regular jeans etc. Mar 15, 2015
Brandon D: I need knee/shin protection to commute to work that had to be easy on/off. Feb 22, 2015
Javan V: Best bang for buck. Feb 19, 2015
Jin P: Been waiting for this to come back! Everyone knows these are great over jeans Dec 2, 2014

A shopper asked: Hello,

I notice the sizing chart lists 3 sizes, but in the description above it says: "One size fits most". So "One size fits most" is equal to: large, medium or small on the chart?

And are these closeouts or returns being sold here?

A shopper asked: Hey guys,
I got this product from a buddy here,but received just the knee guards,and no paperwork.This is my first Dainese product,and i have no clue as to what all documentation it comes with.
Im looking for info on all the necessary documentation on these like the User Manual,Warranty handbook,Dainese Stickers etc.

Also,a black Tag on one of the knee guards says its "Made In Tunisia",stitched right beside the white Dainese Tag (which has EN 1621 CE info,Product number etc.)
Is this True? Are these V E1 N Knee guards really made in Tunisia ?

Anirudh P: Hey,
Thanks for the "Made in" info buddy :)
Well,is there are way i can get those dainese product info tags,user manual or booklet from somewhere? you or any other rider still has them ?

Plus,i got the previous version called the "V knee guards" and this one's "Knee V E1 N guards" . Whats the difference between both of em?

David B: If I recall correctly, these do not come with a bunch of paperwork like user manuals, etc as some of the other Dianese products do. I don't think you need it. Strap them on, either under or over your pants and ride. If you have a warranty issue contact Dianese and see what they say. Yes mine have Made in Tunisia on just one of them. Mar 15, 2015

Brandon D: I got rid of the bag my set came in, but I don't remember anything else in it. I could be wrong; I usually throw all the extras away anyhow.

Yes, they are in fact made in Tunisia.

We highly recommend finding a cloth tape measure and taking the time to take these measurements. Dainese sizes will not necessarily correlate with fitment in other brands.

  • Chest: Measure from under/top of armpit across chest to under/top of other armpit, then across back to first armpit
  • Waist: Measure at the hourglass of your torso, (circumference measured at your belly button)
  • Hips: pelvic bone to pelvic bone, the widest part of your hips below the waist
  • Inseam: from crotch to big ankle bone
  • Outseam: from waist to big ankle bone
  • Gloves: Using a flexible measuring tape, measure around your hand, behind the knuckles, not including the thumb.
