Dainese Knee V Guard 4.6 5 102 102
Nice overall product for the price These knee guards seem to provide nice protection and are fairly comfortable. I have large Bodybuilder legs and so the top strap is too short to go around my leg, but i just flip it over the front and it velcro's just fine to itself, making it perfectly functional. They can be worn outside of the pants just fine, but i really like them underneath, and you can just barely tell they are on, the knee pops out a little bit.. not too bad. Overall i like the product and for the price, i wouldn't hesitate to try this brand again. April 3, 2014
nothing to think about had the unfortunate experience of crash testing these knee guards. About 45 mph low side. Im sore but it really did its job. Do yourself a favor. Get Em! March 30, 2014
a little large for slim calf This one have long shin guard. looks a little racing style but would be fine for city riding. But the upper two ties are a little longer. So it won't keep tightly attached to my calf. I have very thin legs so it might be no problem for normal person. (i'd better exercise squat :) ) Except this issue. It seems to have good protection and style. March 20, 2014
Overall product is great. The knee guard uses 3 Velcro straps top strap to your leg. Putting on and taking off the knee guard is pretty convenient. I'm 5'10" and 170 lbs. They're comfortable to ride in and wear but I am a little nervous that if I drop my bike while riding, the knee guards might just tear right off my legs since they're only being held by the Velcro straps March 18, 2014
Pretty, pretty good. I have not had the misfortune to actually test the amount of impact/abrasion protection that these knee and shin guards actually provide, but I at least have the perception that my knee and shins are very well protected (at least compared to just a pair of jeans). They are very comfortable with a good amount of airflow to keep my lower legs from producing copious amounts of sweat, even with what seems to be a relatively thick padding under the hard armor. The lower 1 to 2 inches of the shin guard taper down, so they can be worn in combo with a higher-top boot and for the most part, it works. I have a pair of TCX X-Raps into which they will fit very snuggly and still allow fairly good range of motion. Overall, I'd say I'm very happy with the purchase and the Dainese Knee V Guard is an excellent addition to my collection of armor. March 11, 2014
Easy to wear, very comfortable and firm Before buying, I was not sure that the strapping method is easy enough. But after using them, I can say that it is not longer to put than my old ones that had simple elastic straps that connects behind the leg. The loops of the straps in this knee guard adds a little time when putting on (but as I said it is not significant), but it adds a lot to the firm sitting and comfort! I wear them on top of pants. They are really comfortable to wear and stay in place no matter what. They have soft texture to touch, that will not scratch your superbike. February 5, 2014
Great quality for the price Good design and well-made. The level of protection seems very good, I like that they also cover a bit of the side of the knee. Fitment is good and they aren't too noticeable when worn, though the knee cap area does -- at least on me -- tend to bulge out a bit when standing. They do cover almost all of your shin, which is great, just be aware that with taller boots, you're going to have to tuck them into the boot and this can get a bit bulky. I have athletic legs and find the usable female velcro available is rather sparse, meaning you have to wrap the straps very tight to get back around to where the male and female velcro can come into contact. It is minor, but I wanted to point it out for anyone that may have thicker legs. Note: It took me awhile to acquire these because they seem to frequently be out of stock (as they are, again, at the time of this review) and I kept missing the available window. If you're interested in purchasing these, I encourage you to do so as soon as you see them available as they probably won't be for long. December 2, 2013
Great quality and comfort Like most everyone else says, these knee guards are pretty awesome. They are designed to curve with your shins, unfortunately they aren't labeled left or right, but you can tell just by look at the curve with leg they go on (right leg will curve to the left, left leg with curve to the right). These knee guards aren't bulky and are segmented so that the whole pad doesn't shift. That and you feel pretty awesome wearing them. As for protection, I purposely banged my shin and knee on some hard metal at work and while I felt the impact, I felt no pain. After your head, spine, and hands, your knees are one of the more vulnerable areas that are important to protect. Overall: Great buy, don't regret it at all. November 26, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
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.

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
abraham g: I chose Dainese Knee V guards because they are slim and dont get in the way of riding. Dec 16, 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

A s: 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

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
