Rukka D3O Air Knee Pads 4.4 5 7 7
Crash tested 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. August 24, 2015
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. April 28, 2014
Great product, but *large* I ordered these as replacement for the cheap foam knee pads in my Sartso kevlar jeans. The product is great -- solidly made, looks like it flows air really well, and probably has a high protection value. My problem: It's *really* long. The pads are about 12"-13" long -- they're meant not just to cover the knee, but most of the shin as well -- and they were just too big for the pad pockets in my jeans, so I had to return them. If you have riding pants/gear that can accommodate knee/shin pads, and need some armor replacements, though, I'd definitely recommend these. February 21, 2014
Excellent armor, but beware if you have an older Rukka suit I have an eight year old Rukka Airpower suit, and switched the original black rubbery armor out for the D30 armor. The armor is WAYYY better than anything else I have seen, and should be useful on a variety of other brands. However, beware of buying this for an older Rukka; the knee protectors are narrower than the original black armor, and do shift around in the pocket of the older suit, leaving the knees exposed. Should work perfectly in a new Rukka, or in many other brands. This product and similar materials are major steps forward in protection. February 20, 2014
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. August 23, 2013
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. June 24, 2013
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. May 17, 2013

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

Patrick F: probably with a very sharp knife, like a scalpel or xacto. … but it is definitely
on the thick side and the contours are there for a reason to prevent rubbing etc...
