At A Glance

The Flex Knee Pads from Kenny Racing uses some tried and tested materials to create a pad with serious impact protection. They feature a plastic fixed shell over the knee cap and a very stiff but flexible upper shin protector, all held in place by a comfy stretch neoprene fabric with two velcro closures.

On The Trail

Front on protection is the primary aim h,ere, the extra padding above and around the knee is minimal. Despite the hard shell design, these are surprisingly comfy and well vented at the back behind the knee. They certainly give an indestructible feel, and although they look chunky they didn't feel cumbersome and were quite at home on long rides out in the mountains. The slightly 80s BMX styling may not appeal to some, but with Kenny's Motocross heritage this is not surprising and certainly looks different from all the other pads on the market.


Serious front-on protection and some love it or hate it 80s BMX styling with these offerings from Kenny. Comfortable, durable and indestructible.
