Klim T5 Pro D3O Elbow / Knee Pads
Great Stuff -- Flubber! Dilantant armor at its best.
An "Intelligent Polymer" from the UK. The stuff is amazing. I am a believer of all the D30 armor products. Here is a real-use testimonial:
I was looking for a road-side memorial for my daugher's boyfriend who had just died in single vehicle accident #a car -- rolled#. I saw a number of people around some flowers and began to slow to turn around #already had passed it#. But there was this cager right on my butt -- a pickup truck -- tailgating me. So I couldn't stop fast and had to slow and motion to the driver I was turning #next left#. That was a paved road that was only paved for the portion that was visible to me from behind a grassy embankment. I ended up taking the turn too fast and whatta ya know... it is a gravel road and down I go like a sack of potatoes. Low speed but I did land with my full weight on my left elbow right down into the jagged gravel of this side road. No harm... not even a bruise except where the 540 lb HD-VRSC landed on my left leg -- that was sore for a day or two. But the elbow... not even any discomfort. Pretty incredible really. Nothing wrong with the elbow pad either -- just like new and ready to re-use.

Used to replace standard
Bought these to replace the standard armour in my wife's Klim Traverse pants. They went in easily and are thinner and more flexible than the standard armour.

Great protection - Fits perfectly in Pokerun Deuce 2.0 jacket
Purchase the product to replace the armor in a recently purchased Pokerun Deuce 2.0 leather jacket. Great replacement for the stock armor that came with the jacket. Fit perfect in the armor pockets. Lite weight and comfortable.

Comfortable, flexible armour, at last!
The regular, hard CE-approved knee armour that came with my Firstgear Mesh-Tex pants made my knees sore after a couple hours of riding. Revzilla staff recommended the Klim Pro D30 armour as a replacement, and it was an excellent choice. The Klim pads provide CE protection, but I hardly notice the armour in the knees anymore, because it is soft and flexible. I'm now thinking about replacing the shoulder and elbow armour in my jackets with the Klim Pro D30 armour, as well.

thick and soft
D30 T5 pro seems to be thick enough for protection, and still soft with high comfort level. Only negative about it is that it is heavier compare to a CE armor.

Good pads for cheap
Just dont let them get too cold or they will break!

Great product, but inflexible when cold.
Do not try to bend when putting on jacket in cold weather - it will break! Once warm it will be flexible, but brittle when cold.

Great, comfortable protection!
I bought these to upgrade the protection in a couple of pants I have. They are very flexible and therefore comfortable! I would buy again!
