    Knee Pads???

    I bought a pair of AlpineStar Tech3 boots and I need knee pads. The ones I have now are knee/shin and I can't use them because they extend into the boot. There are so many choices so I thought I would ask you guys for help finding knee pads that work with MX boots.

    Get a pair of football pants with pads. Come with knee, thigh, hip and tail bone pads. About $35.00. I wear those under a pair of BDU trousers for hard and heavy trail riding.

    I'm not a fan of armor myself. Very restrictive and quite frankly I figure its never going to be where you need it if you go down.

    That being said, the strapless ones like these are much more comfortable.

    So, with this logic I don't need to wear a helmet! I don't intend to fall down and need this item either! However, I probably should wear it, mainly for the things I didn't plan or intend on happening! I've seen your story of the lightning strike out on the freeway!

    Besides this stuff might help. You may not like to wear it, but as long as someone doesn't feel invincible, there could be a time it's needed. One time when I was wearing my shin/knee guards, they come in handy when I tripped over the rock on my way back from peeing. I was able to role over and go to one knee as I helped myself up. Anyone kneel on a rock or uneven ground and it not feel good.

    The guy should take the helmet off his shelf and give it to you!

    I'm not sure what's more restrictive then MX boots. The AlpineStar boots do have soles that do flex a bit. I'm getting ready to take my first ride wearing them. I'll update in an hour or so.
