Dainese Knee V Guard 4.6 5 115 115
Great Product This product is really nice, they are perfect to ride in the city, you can use them below the clothes or on top of them, and they are really easy to use. July 22, 2014
Great protection After two years messing with CE armor that slipped into knee pockets of riding pants. I was continuously frustrated with them not staying in the proper position while riding my CBR1000. These fit like the shin guards of a baseball catcher and do not move around. I have been using these for my daily commute and could not be happier with them. I leave them on under my cargo riding pants at work without issue. They also fit nicely inside my SMX-Plus boots. July 14, 2014
Definite must have Have worn these under levis jeans and were very comfortable,low profile and breathable. Straps seem durable ,fit is good and they stay in place so should do the job if called upon.Would strongly recommend especially if you don't have riding pants/jeans and a really good alpinestars or sidi boot. July 1, 2014
Very Good Muito bom produto, recomendo. Ótima proteção para joelhos e canela. Ajustável ao tamanho da panturrilha e tem bastante ventilação. Qualidade do material é dispensável comentar, a marca fala por si Dianese. June 30, 2014
Great for adding everyday protection The most attractive thing about these guards to me is their ability to add armor to everyday clothes.Because of my job I am not always able to wear armored jeans on my commute to work so I was looking for a way to add some protection under my work pants. These guards fit the bill perfectly. I wouldn't expect them to provide the same amount of protection as a well sorted set of leathers or even armored kevlar jeans but they are certainly better than simple off the shelf jeans. These guards do fit well under most pants. I cant see these working under really skinny jeans but they fit just fin under my slim cut and straight cut jeans. Only gripe about these is that when you are standing up the knee does pop out a little and is somewhat visible under your pants. This shouldnt be a surprise as these are still pieces of armor. They do hide well under jeans but dont expect them to be completely invisible. June 20, 2014
Good fit, great articulation, excellent coverage Put these on right out of the box and wore them around the house over bare legs for a couple hours - not exactly cozy, but not uncomfortable either. They're much better over pants, which is what I bought them for. Elastic straps are soft and placed correctly, and the articulation in the knees is phenomenal. I'm 5'10 and leggy, so I was surprised to find that the shin guard extends all the way to the bottom of my ankle. As such, they've got to go inside my boots (the wraparound strap on my tankers makes this easy). My only beef with these is that the velcro straps, rather than wrapping around themselves like my (crummy) Shift guards do, have to be fed through rings and then back over. Adds maybe 10 seconds to the process of gearing up. Overall I'm happy and feel well protected. June 7, 2014
great comfort and protection Love this product. I use it for my weekly commute to and from work. Great design quick and easy to take on and off. Very comfortable. And I can wear them over or under my work uniform. No more changing out of my kevlar jeans. May 26, 2014
Great affordable protection! I cannot stress enough how great these fit and feel compared to any other knee/ shin pads I've tried on. For the money these are an exceptional value and a huge bang for the buck. It took a couple of rides to find out how tight each strap should be, but after some adjusting I don't even realize these are on. Off the bike these add some bulk, so you may notice them while walking around, but they are quick and easy to take on and off and I find myself going back to these again and again each time I ride.

billy o: To wear under jeans Jul 27, 2014
A L: The price was good, and I wanted to add a bit of impact/slide protection to my knees. A bit of hassle putting them on/off is worth having good knees for sports or even just walking for when I'm older. Under some jeans, they're not very noticeable. I don't notice them while riding. Jul 25, 2014

Ryan R: Because Dainese has never disappointed me! Apr 3, 2014
Paul V: Lots of great reviews regards fitment and protection, as well as comfort when wearing Kevlar jeans Mar 26, 2014
A S: I think knee guard is better protection than any riding pant. Mar 25, 2014
J T: these are great, it takes a bit of time to put them on because you have to loop the straps through. other than that, it's light, quite comfortable and pretty low profile. Mar 24, 2014
Joseph C: Like myself with others that have replied, I am feeling a little more cautious with age. All the reviews have been excellent on this product and for the price, I feel it is a good choice. At least if I take a spill and I have these on, I can say to myself thank goodness rather than saying, I should have...
Its a smart choice...protect yourself, no one else will protect you.
Mar 14, 2014
randolph a: I need these since I just recently low sided my bike, and the only thing that damaged on me was my knee and that's because I did have protection on my knees. Other than that hopefully I will never have to use these Mar 13, 2014
Richard C: I am looking for something to protect me on the streets as a casual rider. I want to buy a 2-piece racing suit for the track but leave the leather at home if I drive to the store for orange juice.

I think your site is the best! You have the best video guides and explain the best features about lots of products, I am going to buy my gear from here only because I watched the videos to understand what to look for as a new rider. Thanks!

Sam G: Still use to this day. Comfort and slim profile make you wear it all the time. Mar 2, 2014
Isaac T: Good reviews, plan on wearing under kevlar jeans for daily commute. Feb 21, 2014
Taylor W: I wanted something that would help protect my legs in case of a crash that I could toss on over a normal pair of jeans if I was just making a short run somewhere. Not quite ATGATT, but they feel durable enough that I feel better about riding in less than full body armor. Feb 17, 2014
Joshua K: I am 6'6" and looking for knee protection not attached to a pant. Feb 15, 2014
David R: They looked like they would fit my needs and the reviews I read seemed to confirm that impression. Feb 14, 2014
Todd A: Reviews & positive previous experience with other products from manufacturer. Jan 26, 2014
Charles A: Nice sleek design - I'd use this more often if the straps went around the protector as removing and putting it on is a chore as you need to take off your shoes or undo the straps and then you have to re-thread them thru the holes 6 times everytime. Goona get simple forcefield knee guards next. Dec 31, 2013
Artur Volker C: My pants knee protections run a little loose when I'm not wearing jeans underneath. So I wanted to improve knee protection on warm days. Dec 23, 2013
sarah k h: i wanted an alternative to chaps, leather pants and riding pants. i bought these and the icon stryker hip protection as my gear. Dec 20, 2013

Scott L: Great Product ! Comfort and good protection! Nov 25, 2013
Johnnie B: I have used these knee guards on thousand of miles of journeys. They have served me very well. I usually don't leave home without them. Very pleased with this product. Nov 4, 2013
Nicholas T: Looking for a value knee guard, bought this based on reviews and brand. Nov 3, 2013
Darren W: Works great under my jeans. I wear them for hours and never have a problem. Construction is great, comfortable and seem like they would provide great protection if I ever have need of them. Sep 28, 2013
Adam P: A friend of mine bought these first so I had a chance to see if I liked them. They go down into your boot or riding shoe and offer maximum protection for the length of your shins. They are also thin enough to wear under your riding jeans and not look like you are wearing hockey pads. They are hard armor not just soft, which in my opinion is better for that initial impact and possible slide you may encounter. All looks and no play won't keep your skin on at the end of the day. Aug 22, 2013
Jack S: Impressed with expected protection. Aug 14, 2013

Joe A: Probably going to have to run them on the inside of your boots. They are pretty decent protection and I can tell you from multiple spills on them they are great. On my motocross boots they fit in the inside and on my street boots same thing. They are pretty slim profile. I actually put about 15k miles on them wearing them every day on a 2 month motorcyle trip last year. I went down a couple times at low speed on the super Moto track, also went down once due to a huge dog charging me . ( I actually like the dog and didn't want to hit him). My right knee and shoulder took the brunt of the blow and with armor on I got up, yelled at the dog and rolled home. The same spill without would have been a trip to the hospital no doubt.
Comfortable and in a pinch they work awesome. Have definitely saved my knees, and shins.

Eric M: Hi Jose - I ride with a pair of short boots that offer ankle protection but not shin protection. The shin section of the V guard goes down quite low and the strap is meant to fasten at about the lower calf a little bit above the ankle - it definitely isn't designed to be worn over the boot and the strap definitely wouldn't fit around the back of the boot. It's not really compatible with a full length boot. I think if you're better off with the soft knee six or if you can wait for it, the knee six pro. Aug 14, 2013

Rudyard R: There isn't as much adjustment in the lower strap. I've only seen pictures of the in boots. Unless you have very stocky lower legs I think you can fit them over or above the boot cuff. Because there is also some adjustment in how high or low I wear them.

FYI My plan was to upgrade to Dainese "in" boots after trying these guards. But they worked fine with my existing full length TCX race boots if I wore the boots over the guards over the pants. So I never bothered.

Michael K: I have the same boots and knee guards. Yes, the straps fit over the boots. Sometimes i wear the knee guards under my jeans when riding, sometimes on top. The main thing I do, instead of having the lower strap over the back of the boot, is to pull that strap upward slightly so it rests on the top edge of the boot (on the back). That gives the strap something to catch on and keeps the knee guards from sliding down when walking. Aug 14, 2013

Joseph N: I have the torque out boots and they fit inside just fine. I have not held the torque in boots hence don't know how thick the top is. If they are like really thick like hiking or outdoor winter socks, there should be enough space for the strap to fit over them. The straps will not fit over the torque out boots. Aug 14, 2013

Wong H: I use the Knee V Guards with my Torque Out boots. I would assume that they can work with your Torque In boots depending on how much room you have in the lower and mid-calf area of your boots. Aug 14, 2013

James M: I seriously doubt the ankle straps will wrap around a boot. I wear the strap directly around my fairly lean calf and there is not a whole lot of adjustment left. Aug 19, 2013

Michael M: I'm 6'4" 220ish and wear these under my jeans without a problem. They're not bulky and fit nicely into my Sidi boots. The multiple adjustable straps help keep everything in place when I'm walking without the boots as well.
I actually was wearing these when I fell a few months ago and they definitely helped protect my knees when they hit the road and slide about 10 feet. You could see the imprint from the road on the hard shell but I didn't feel anything in my knees.

gustavo g: I would definitely recommend this product. They are comfortable and are made from a pretty durable material. The only thing about this product that I had a problem with is that the Velcro was to big for my legs so i had to go buy adhesive backed Velcro to suit it to my size. Other than that, these guards work really well. Oct 31, 2013

ALEXANDER R: If knee guards are what ure after these fit the job great. The straps are fairly comfortable. However, ive rarely been wearing them because they require a fairly loose jeans fit to feel comfortable. I would recommend going for kevlar denim pants with fitted protection slots instead. Just my personal preference. Oct 30, 2013

Wong H: I wear these knee guards under regular jeans, riding pants, etc. They are comfortable and are low profile. They are not the most easiest to take on/off while wearing regular street jeans due to the high coverage area of the guards and straps. Oct 31, 2013
Reply to Wong Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Christophe M: I've never tried myself but it should work. you would have to put them on before your jeans. I always use them above my pants because it is quicker to put and remove. It stays very securely above the pants. Oct 30, 2013

A shopper asked: I have the Dainese Race Torque Outs and I am wondering how the shin protection area will fit with the boots. How long is the protector from the top to bottom? Is the top strap above the knee as well? Apr 28, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Quackuack: 3 straps total per side. 1: above the knee, 1:below the joint. 1: at the ankle. These guards go way low. Def under the boot. you should be all right though. Ultimately, you won't wear these under riding pants, and if your riding in a way in which you feel you need the protection then I'd recommend getting some motorcycle specific pants. Sep 26, 2011
Reply to Quackuack Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris K: This protector is long, so if you have full boots they may need to be tucked in slightly. For taller people (I'm 6'4") this won't be an issue, but if you are say 5'9" or shorter this may start to get in the way of the boots depending on your riding position. The top strap is above the knee as you mentioned. Apr 29, 2011

joel a: At QuackKuack. Thanks for the response. Judging by your experience with the product, I won't be getting those. I saw that you list yourself on your profile as a 'road warrior'. I would've never guessed since you mention that you are 5'8 and 140lbs; I weighed that in seventh grade. That being said, I'm certain that the only jeans you fit into are skinny jeans. I ride a Triumph Thurxton, which is a cafe racer inspired bike. So yes, my rider type is cafe racer.

AliB: These knee guards are not hinged. The backing is a neoprene-like material that feels slightly padded and moves with your natural movement. The MSR reflex knee is a true hinged knee guard, complete with flush pivot screws. Nov 25, 2011

Quackuack: No mechanical hinge perse. They are pretty straight forward. Look at the picture and what you see is what you get. The hard plates are linked together by the fabric. I'm assuming your a hipster by the fact that you list Cafe Racer as your rider type. That being said, you probably wear those hipster skinner jeans all the kids are wearing these days. Ya might go a size up on the pants to fit these knee pads in. Truth be told, I like wearing riding pants with built in CE protection much better than these knee pads. Food for thought. Nov 18, 2011
