Forcefield Limb Tubes Detachable Straps
Bought these pads for motorcycling. As I was sick of the ones that slip in your trousers always cutting in and being uncomfortable.
These pads are brilliant; they provide protection to the top of the boot and over all the knee. I haven't tested them in a fall and hope I never have to, however they feel really solid and I am sure they are up to the job. The main thing is they are also so comfortable and don't feel too hot even on a really warm day.
Have already recommended them to friends and will have to try the shorts next.

Everyone's been telling me how great this product is and I didn't believe them but I thought I'd give it a go. Once I put on them, wow, man I feel my knees are young again. With this pair of Limb straps I was able to ski much quicker and do 360s. Within the first day of putting these on, I skiied for 8 hours straight. Unbelievable feeling. I would recommend to anyone who wants to take skiing to the next level. I have been wheelchair bound for the best of the last decade and these straps make me fly.

Seem fantastic but not used in anger yet....
I bought these in the sale at the very end of the season, so not tried them out on the snow yet!?
I bought them following knee surgery and having borrowed a different brand from a mate for an Easter trip to Chamonix. They made me realise that even without spills, the fact they're on increases your feeling of security when getting used to riding following surgery!! Stopping and kneeling was also so much more comfy, with reassurance for the knee!!
These seem very good quality, technically I'm assuming they are pretty top as they are very low profile. Nothing like the pads I owned as a kid, which were a cross between a large bath sponge and a hovis loaf!!!! In a stripy tube!! The days of Cooper helmets!!!
Unless you've got silicone skin or a sticky base layer, which I don't wear, the straps need to stay on as without they slide straight away!!
I look forward to trying them properly........if I hadn't just snapped my ACL!!!!!

Did what it said on the tin
Broke my funny bone 3 weeks before going snowboarding and needed something to keep me in one piece.
Worked brilliantly as a cushion to land badly, or slide out on to at high speed.

I bought these to replace an articulated pair of knee guards for off road motorcycling, I like them so much I have started wearing them on the road also.

Poor performance and value
OK got these at half price thought I had a Bargain... But....
Really expected more from these.
Performance is poor as they are quite rigid and uncomfortably press into shin bones. Whether they loosen up with use maybe? The fastening Velcro struggles to keep in place, I guess that's the same for most knee pads but at the price you'd think they had cracked it but no. There is no way you could forget you were wearing these.
I have some demon and rucanor pads, much cheaper they do same job and stay in place better also less painful on the shins.
Maybe they can be cut to customise a little but can't see why it extends down onto shin bone.
Kept some for the kids but have little hope they will wear them and will keep looking for better & I hope Snow & Rock do the same.
Overall cannot recommend, sorry wanted to love them just didn't.

This product does what it's say!
I brought this product for my dad as a christmas present to help him with his knee pain whilst motorcycling and skiing. From what he has told me he seems to be in less pain now because of them; on a motorcycle, so just skiing to try now :)
