Rider protection continues to evolve and improve thanks to products such as the Dainese Enduro Knee Guard, which will debut in October and feature a hybrid construction that mixes the mobility and breathability of the nature-inspired Pro-Armor padding with the durability and impact resistance of ABS technology.
The Dainese Enduro Knee Guard is designed to cover specific areas of the knee bones like the kneecap and the shinbone, while the extended Pro-Armor construction provides coverage of cartilage during sliding falls. Extra protection is offered by the three Crash Absorb pads on the inner section of the Dainese Enduro Knee Guard to lessen bumps with the frame and other possible injuries. And the Dainese Enduro Knee Guard is developed around the shape of the knee to provide the rider with freedom of movement and comfort while pedaling.
The hybrid construction extends over the knee bones, replicating body biomechanics while maintaining mobility and coverage during stretching, compression, twisting and flexion. The front ABS plates of the Dainese Enduro Knee Guard provide the rider with high impact resistance and ensure sliding during falls while the Pro-Armor and the Crash Absorb side padding bolsters coverage on the delicate side parts of the knee.
The pre-curved hybrid construction of the Dainese Enduro Knee Guard allows the rider to have unrestricted motion during climbing and descending, with enough flex to aid re-mounting without the pad shifting. The elastic bands were redesigned to follow the leg shape, while the elastic calf gripper allows the pad to stay firm during the ride.
The fractal-inspired structure balances density of padding with ventilation, which results in a high level of protection, and also offers enhanced breathability and ventilation. The new Airnet sleeve features jersey hole mesh on the back of the knee, ensuring the rider feels fresh and comfortable even during hard efforts.
