Great knee pads
BY Justin Jan 9, 2020
Love the amount of coverage these provide. They're very comfortable too. Disappear while riding. Upper and lower silicone grips keep them in place well too. Had a crash already and my knees came out unscathed.
Effective if....
BY Todd Dec 31, 2019
I ordered the Elite Knee Guards for snowmobiling (back country mountain riding) with the idea that they would protect my knees and upper shins. Coverage of the protective blocks appears to be very good, although a bit stiff.
Ride 1 - short ride, only a couple hours. The guards seemed to be ok from a comfort standpoint, but one slid down my shin.
Ride 2 - 6+ hours. Had to "drop trou" two different times to pull both guards back up. Unfortunately, before the third time, I smashed both knees into the front cowl. Was left sore and disappointed.
That being said, I think they'd be very effective "IF" they stayed in place.
Notes: my leg measurements are well within the correct size chart. I wore them over a pair of UA ColdGear leggings.
Going to be looking for something different with velcro bands to keep in place.
G-Form Response
Hi Todd,

Thank you for your very informative helpful review. Please note G-Form guards are meant to be worn next to the skin, meaning the grippers won’t stick to clothing. Hope this helps!
Solid fitment with good protection
BY Josh Dec 20, 2019
Good fitment, I recommend everyone measures out their leg to get the correct size pair. In the cold these can be kind of hard to put on since they get really stiff. But once these are on for a while you forget they are even there. Haven't had any issues with them sliding down once I figured how to adjust them up properly.
Great product

The knee pads met all my expectations.
Best Mountain Bike pads
BY Amber Aug 29, 2019
These pads don't slip, are very light weight, not bulky, and breathe very well. These are the best pads I have ever used!
Fit good
BY James Aug 19, 2019
Great product all around. Took a spill and did not feel a thing with these pads.

Great product
Solid Value
BY Peteway Jul 23, 2019
Fits snug and doesn't move. Protection is top-notch, no live crash tests yet, but I'm not worried about it doing it's job.
Better than before
BY Bopet Jul 16, 2019
I have been a G-form fan for a long time. They fit well and doesn't get in the way. After a while you forget you have them on. It stays dry and wicks moisture effectively too. And this one is even better than before! Not only does it protect your knees better due to more coverage, the stitching is better too. These are my go-to knee pads when I know I will be riding black rated trails. Love G-Form!
BY Daniel May 11, 2019
These knee guards fit great and don’t slip. Great protection too.
Forget that I'm wearing them
BY TheloneMTBr May 7, 2019
I was looking for a replacement for my old pads and decided to give these a whirl. Initially I was concerned that they were to tight, but after the first couple miles of my ride, I forgot I even had them on. They are breathable, very flexible and lightweight. I can't speak for the performance during a crash, but I'm sure that'll happen soon enough.
Comfort without compromise
BY Christopher May 2, 2019
I have owned knee pads from other brands in the past, but rarely wore them due to the discomfort. The G-Form Elite knee guards are a game changer - plenty of protection, but they are lightweight, flexible, and reasonably cool. I find I now wear them on almost every ride and I quickly forget they are there (which was never the case with other pads). The sizing for me (size L) seems spot on. Highly recommend.
it's bigger
BY Han Apr 30, 2019
These are beefy. The extra amount of padding really helps to absorb impacts coming in. The profile is slightly more pronounced than a Pro-X.
Great coverage.
BY C-Mac Apr 18, 2019
Perfect for riding. I completely forget the are there once I'm on the trail.
Comfort and confidence!
BY Jim Nichols Apr 18, 2019
When it comes to mountain biking, my theory is that if I ain't wrecking, I ain't learning. Or at least I'm not pushing my limits. But when the scars on my knees and elbows started having scars of their own, it was time to protect myself. I bought a pair of Pro-X elbow pads and Elite knee guards. From the first time I rode in them, I couldn't believe how comfortable they are. You forget you're wearing them. The second benefit is that I feel like Superman wearing them: I'm riding over tons of stuff that I used to be afraid of, and discovering new things about my bike and myself. The big question, of course, is: Do they work? Well, I can only give four stars, because even though I have ridden over the gnarliest rock gardens and ledges I've ever tried to ride since I got my G-Form pads, I honestly don't know how they'll handle impact because still have not crashed. Maybe they really DO give me super powers!
Are they there?
BY Eric Mar 31, 2019
I just finished my first ride with these pads. I was a bit skeptical when my buddy told me he didn’t even notice his Pro-X knee pads while riding. I decided to buy the Pro Elite pads because I tend to be a more aggressive rider prone to knee strikes. Even though they are thicker and provide more coverage, I completely forgot I was wearing them halfway through my ride. Although I didn’t take a significant spill, I feel they offer plenty of protection and and are very comfortable.
Look good and lite.

Feel good and look good, only have two rides with them.
