I dont want Draggin Jeans or other biker pants. I want to put knee pads under any pair of pants I wear.

I've only found a few and wanted to know if anyone has used or bought any thing like these.

I'm leaning more towards the Dainese because you bikers always say their stuff is top quality. I just cant tell if they are made to go under pants at least semi discreatly. I dont want to look like i have dick sucking equipment on.

The Icons say they go under pants well.

those dont Appear to offer any protection. Just some bicycle pads with a hefty price tag. I may have to gamble and just buy the dainese or the Icons.

Actually the T-pro stuff and I think the Diainese are the only choice of protectors in that list that are actually CE certified for motorcyclist impact protection. If you are looking for abrasion protection get some proper outer pants.

oh i thought i checked the Tpro site thoroughly. I didnt see anything that mentioned CE. I just saw a lot of jargon about the materials used. Ill check it again before i finish my presentation.

Johnson's just added those strap-on protectors to their page recently, without adding any info to go with the pics. From what I understand, all of the T-pro products are CE certifed, and many also meet the Cambridge high-performance standards, but you may want to shoot them an email to confirm it.

actually i had emailed them right after i left my last post. Somehow they responded already with this :

""Hi,

All our Armour is CE Certified as well as Cambridge Certified by Dr. Woods. The Cambridge standard requires a higher level (75joules)to pass and our knee pads are between 75 and 100 Joules.

Thanks,
Alan

Are the knee pads you sell CE certified?""

I plan on looking up the Cambridge certification to see what it's all about. I still have to email Icon to see how tuff their stuff supposedly is.
