Rukka D3O Air Knee Pads
Replaced my knee pads that came in my Dainese pants with these pads and they are 100% more comfortable and a perfect fit. Could not be happier!

Not a replacement knee pad for BMW Rallye 2 pants
Tried to replace torn knee pads on my BMW Rallye 2 suit. The ProSafe pads had torn. These will technically fit (barely) but they are kind of a flat slab that extend down too far and interfere with the top of the boot. If the pad had more of a knee cup it might have worked with a bit of trimming off the bottom. Quite heavy pads weigh down the pants a bit, but probably offer good protection in a crash. Granted, not designed for my BMW suit but it was worth a shot.
The torn BMW pads were glued using 3M 08008 Black Super Weatherstrip Adhesive and it holding well so far.

Happily I have not tested these. But they fit well in the Olympia pants I have. Knee pads seem a little off center, but that's the kind of thing you have to manage with replacement items as opposed to OEM. They are warm, but what do you expect from large pieces of foam that cover your knees? I highly recommend these as replacements for OEM pads.

I bought this pad for my over pants. Completely filled the knee pad pouch for both knee and shin protection. Very flexible material. Easily formed to my knee/shin when riding. Not stiff like the armor that came with my pants.

Great upgrade for RevIt! Tornado pants
The Revit! Tornado mesh overpants pants have wimpy knee protectors that are small and invasively pre-shaped. They fit into knee pockets with Velcro adjustments. I never found the right position that worked when in riding position and walking around. These Rukka D30 knee pads were recommended by Revzilla. They fit into the pockets barely without needing any trimming. I say barely because the main Velcro closure doesn't meet by matter of 1/4", but that works better for me than trimming the knee protector. More protection, flexible material, vented with air flow holes, and they stay in position without awkward rubbing when seated or walking around. Good upgrade once you're committed to an otherwise great pair of pants with sub-par knee protection fitment.

Must have for touring safety
These Rukka D3O knee pads are a perfect fit for my Olympia Airglide 3 riding pants. They are 10 cm longer than the stock pads, but they fit perfectly in the knee pad pouch. Although substantially heavier than the stock pads, the air flow is excellent and they are much less noticeable while riding than the stock pads.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND these knee pads. Well worth the cost.

I've had D3O padding in my mesh summer jacket for about a year now and always loved the fit and flexibility. A few months ago, I decided to upgrade my race suit's armor to full D3O padding. Last month I crashed fairly hard at the track, missing a corner at about 50-60mph and losing traction in the grass infield. I slammed down hard on my R shoulder, my R leg slid under the bike for a while, and I spent a fair amount of time tumbling. My only major injury was a ligament strain in the R shoulder that I'm fairly sure could have been worse. I can't say for certain that the D3O worked any better or worse than other padding would have, but I walked away. I'll keep on using it for as long as it's available.

Perfect replacement for the Dainese Kit J
Perfect replacement for the Dainese Kit J Knee armour for the D1 and D6 armour ready riding jeans.
They're much softer and comfortable so much so that you tend to forget you are wearing them after a while.
