The K-LITE ZIP knee pads by ION have been awarded the ION SAVE OUR PLAYGROUNDS seal for their sustainable manufacturing methods. Thanks to their Velcro fasteners, they can be individually adjusted and offer you a medium-level of protection on All-Mountain and Enduro rides. The SAS-TEC foam hardens in the event of an impact to absorb the impact energy. Afterwards, the foam returns to its soft, flexible original shape. The pad of the knee guards can also be removed. The seamless, robust layer on the front optimises the grip of the pads so that they do not slip if you fall.

Safety made from foam. The high-quality, viscoelastic, soft foam protectors made of special SAS-TEC foam protect the human body during activities like motorcycling, mountain biking or skiing. After external forces or other impacts, the foam (the protector) returns to its original shape immediately. External forces like shocks or high pressure to one and the same spot won't damage the protector. Instead, it will keep its full functionality. As the protector is perfectly adapted to the back's anatomy, you will hardly notice it. Moreover, the protector impresses with a low weight and high flexibility. For increased safety on the bike.
