Fox Racing Titan Race Knee/Shin Guards
Nice Inexpensive Protection
These worked well the one time I have worn them. I wore them next to my leg (not over pants or a sock) and they were comfortable. I intend to wear them every time I ride, not just when touring. They provide nice protection for the shin and knee, which to me are very vulnerable even in a non-getoff situation. Simply just throwing your leg over the saddle and hitting a pannier can potentially ruin a ride. I have long legs so I don't have to worry about it interfering with my boots. They have a nice clip design so you set the strap length once and then don't worry about having to adjust straps on subsequent uses. All-in-all, worth every penny.

Great knee pads for a great price
I'm pretty new to the motorcycle community so I insisted on riding with knee pads when I was getting used to my bike. I have them over my jeans since they get uncomfortable on my bare legs. But over my jeans they are quite comfy and I forget about them when I am riding. They are not that low key so you do look like you are wearing knee pads but thats okay. My husbands knee pads are pretty flush with his dark jeans but I like these better.
I actually have crash tested these and let me tell you, when you have crashed with knee pads, you will never want to take them off again. They saved my knee/shin area from absolutely any damage and I couldn't be any happier! My leg was sandwiched between 2 bikes while I was sliding at 20 mph and no pain whatsoever. Go gear!
Walking with them is a bit odd since they articulate for riding but it's not to bad.

Great for the price
Great price, great quality and bang for the buck
I bought these for street purposes, however the label says they are only intended for offroad.
Better than nothing I guess.

Excellent for the price
I've unfortunately already had a chance to test these in a get off. Went down on a hard, rocky trail, at medium speed (well medium for a trail). Foot, shin, knee, and elbows hit a few big rocks. These knee guards performed their job well and I got up with nothing but a bruised ego.
They fit well, are comfortable, and I barely notice them.

Good protection - good price...
I wear these under jeans and found them to be comfortable on or off the bike. I wear over the calf socks with my riding boots and the straps on these guards don't contact my skin. I don't know how they would be next to skin but they are comfortable with my setup. The straps are the kind that you adjust once then just clip and unclip to fasten - very nice. The guards are left and right knee specific and stay in place very well. I've never felt that they moved around at all once fastened. There is no strap on the part that goes over the kneecap but that is actually a good thing as it leaves it free to flex with your leg - especially when walking. I wear these under regular fit jeans and they are not really noticeable unless you are looking for them. The top does tend to show a little if you forget to pull your pants legs down after dismounting. These are hard protectors and they do retain heat a little when it is extremely warm outside but you don't really notice it until you take them off and feel the cool air on your shins. Part of that may be the high socks I wear. All in all I think these guards are a good bang for the buck and I recommend them to anyone who wants to add that extra feeling of protection.
