The D30 Air Knee Pads provide patented, CE approved and breathable protection. D30 Air has been developed specifically for Rukka and is a unique material that combines enhanced chemistry with product engineering to produce high performance shock absorption and impact protection.
The D30 material contains intelligent molecules that flow freely when moving but lock together to absorb impact energy upon impact.
Excellent armour upgrade
Really good fit very easy to take in and out - better than the original armour. But it is overall hotter, a little heavier and bulkier than the original. I'm wearing an Armas suit (Black) and it's hot in anything above 28 C. Where you notice it most is in the back protector. That being said, as always for better protection, there's always a sacrifice. Still comfy considering its a bit thicker and not as plyable as the original. I ride anywhere from 350 - 600km in a day (on a R1200GS) and the only difference I've noticed is the increase in heat other than that this armour upgrade is perfect. Highly reco for anyone doing serious distance.

Hard to say anything until you crash test it....
...which I didn't. After I crash it I will have a better opinion on whether it's good or bad. Right now, it's a very ambiguous 3 stars.

Nice Knee pads
I had bought these knee pads because I had bought the D30 back protector, and simply loved it. I had assumed that the D30 knee pads would be the same, and it has met my expectations. The knee protectors were "comfortable" to wear, and easily fit on my Alpinestar Urban DNS pants.
I put quotations on the word comfortable because although they do not bulge out on the front like most knee pads do, they do some what bulge out on its sides. These D30 knee pads are not pre molded/shaped to our knees, so it will be sticking out just a tad bit on the sides. They are also a bit long, so when wearing full ankle boots, with shin guards, the knee pads will be in the way.
The airflow is great on these knee protectors and I do feel safer with them on.
I wouldn't necessarily say the are best bang for the buck because I had bought the D30 back protector for the same price as these knee pads.
Overall these are great knee protectors as they are comfortable, and durable.

David M:the material is easily trimmed but you'll need to check with the manufacturer as to whether that would have any negative impact on the performance of the knee pad. I took a different approach and had a local seamstress modify the pockets so that they could accommodate the bigger Rukka pads. It's amazing what you can do with some wide-band velcro :)Nov 14, 2013
Jim W asked:Do you know how these are in the cold? Curious if they will be rock hard when the temp drops. Any chance you could park them in the company break room fridge overnight, and see how they do?Aug 21, 2013
