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.

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.

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.

Perfect Replacement!
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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Big Protection
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.

Good replacements
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.
