Icon Cloverleaf Knee Sliders
Effective for what they are
I bought these mostly to use as additional protection when commuting, but liked the idea of having a slider in case the need arose for it. The construction is pretty solid, with the leather being of a pretty good quality. As many people have stated, the straps take a few rides to break in, but once you've had them on for a few minutes you hardly notice them.

Feels Safe & Flexible
Helps hold up my over pants and seems secure on the knee, with no lost flexibility, at least for riding purposes.

I have only owned them for a short time, but so far so good.
All the seams are good to go and they do not restrict standing up straight like alot of them do. Only two very small complaints...... I'm a bigger guy keep in mind, 5'8, 270. But the straps dig into the back of my knee a tad and slightly restrict my right foot getting on the rear, but should soften up with use. And the other thing is the hook & loop for the left knee puck does not hold very well, probably just a fluke and my luck ;) Overall they should do well in a off and save your knees.

They do the trick
I got these clover Leaf knee-sliders for their D30 armor more than their value as knee-sliders. I rarely use the pucks when riding, and that serves to make them more flexible and comfortable. It took about 6 rides for the straps to break in and go from annoying to unnoticeable. With the rigid pucks in place, they are not as comfortable, but if you intend to do some real knee down riding, they are a must.
I wear them over jeans with Icon Elsinore boots, and they work together really well. For cold days, I wear the Clover Leafs under Icon Device textile pants, with the field armor knee pads removed from the pants, and they are a great combination.
I'm 5'10, 170lbs, and the small/medium fit well with no strap trimming necessary.

Good for a non full suit substitute for commuting.
I bought these to protect my knees as I commute on my kawasaki ninja 1000 I wear a full suit on the track but these do the job to protect while commuting.

straps flimsy, pads slide around
i've been wearing these on my daily 45 minute commute to work. the straps deteriorated and frayed after the first week quite a bit, but they are still hanging on after about 6 months.
i measured my legs with measuring tape and ordered my size according to the size chart, but these pads slide all over the place.
im sure they would help somewhat in a crash... but who wants to take a chance on having them slide out of place?

Well made, great functionality, smart.
I bought these because I hate getting all geared up for my 5 minute commute, but I also don't like feeling exposed, no matter how short the ride.
These make me feel WAY more confident on my bike than just wearing the jeans I'm wearing to work that day. They also look really cool too, although the pucks are a little silly.
These are very well made. I haven't trimmed off the velcro yet because my girlfriend sometimes uses them as extra protection when I've got my suit on. (SEE ATTACHED PIC)
At first, I was a little nervous they'd be uncomfortable and possibly cut off the circulation on my legs, but they stretched out a bit and now are very comfortable.
They are a little expensive, but hey, so is knee surgery.

Quick on and off knee protection
On the weekends, I have my riding pants.. for commuting or quick rides, they are not always the convenient choice. The Icon Cloverleafs are easy on and easy off.. they fit conveniently in a backpack or tailbag when you get to where you are going. The fit is adjustable to get the tightness that you want.. and they look pretty badass. I almost wish they didn't have a knee slider puck on them because IMO I think it sends the wrong message about what they are best for. The pucks work, but i don't think I'd recommend you try to use them on a track day without some riding pants.
