Kali AAZIS Armor Review

Armor Pro Reviews

Their knee and knee/shin armor are comfortable, light, easy to wear, and provides excellent protection. They have made a design that utilizes a great combination of soft and hard materials, and uses innovative features, such as side protection, and an extremely durable front covering. In Sanskrit, Aazis means “blessing”, which certainly defines their focus. Their armor is used by multiple extreme sports and their practitioners, such as mountain bike, skateboard, BMX, snowboard and motocross.

Kali AAZIS
The AAZIS armor comes in three different versions, the AAZIS Knee Guard, the AAZIS Plus 180 Knee/Shin Guard and AAZIS Plus 130 Knee/Shin Guard. The numeric numbering for the knee/shin guard refers to the additional coverage below the normal knee guard, 180mm and 130mm respectively (7 and 5 inches). The knee is protected by a flexible ABS shell, while the shin uses a flexible ABS plate, and they are both padded internally with a Nitrex foam lining, and covered with a Kevlar-weaved synthetic for durability and abrasion resistance. The knee guard has six dense foam pads or buttons located along the sides for ligament protection, while the shin has four additional pads, and both have Nitrex foam pads above and below the knee shell. The slip-on armor uses a perforated neoprene material, that is washable, breathable and anti-microbial, and uses two large Velcro straps to keep everything in place, plus the shin model uses a third anklet connector. They are available in Green and Gray, and come in the size’s Small, Medium, Large and X-Large.

Measured Weight:

  • Knee – 462 grams (Medium)
  • Knee/Shin – 642 grams (180 Medium)

About the author: Brian Mullin

Brian has been part of the Mtbr team since 2007, where he has become an integral member of the review and test staff, specializing in technical articles. He likes to push the limits in all the sports he obsesses in, whether it's mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, extreme skiing, or sport climbing. He takes those same strengths and a good dose of insanity to his reviewing and writing on mountain biking products, creating technical, in-depth and hyperbolic articles. Whenever he's not on the bike, he might be found watching MotoGP racing, otherwise look for him out on extremely technical singletrack.

    Nice write-up. They look suspiciously close to the 661 Kyle Strait pads, but, these are next on my list. Hope they hold up better than the 661′s.
