G-Form Knee Pads: What’s PORON XRD?
G-Form knee pads may not look like any knee pads you’ve seen before. They’re made to fit snugly, over or under your clothing, with a unique pad design that resembles an exoskeleton. These unusual pads are made from a composite of PORON® XRD™ and proprietary G-Form materials. PORON® was developed by the Rogers Corporation as a performance urethane. PORON® XRD™ is designed for extreme impact protection for sports apparel and equipment. The material is designed to absorb more than 90% of energy when impacted at high strain rates and has consistent repeated impact absorption. Moreover, it’s flexible and extremely lightweight. What this means for you is a G-Form knee pad that is low profile, lightweight, and contours to fit your body whether you use them as mountain bike knee pads, snowboard knee pads, or skate knee pads.

G-Form was founded by avid athletes who shared a common vision of using advanced polymer technology to revolutionize impact protection and vibration dampening for competition. The founding team included expertise in a wide variety of sports as well as expertise in polymer chemistry, 3-D design, photography, mold making, entrepreneurship, innovation, and out-of-the-box thinking.
Rather than have products developed and driven from a top-down marketing approach, the G-Form team has worked together to make products developed from the athlete’s point of view. While the team has grown exponentially and product lines have expanded to electronics protection and military/tactical gear, the philosophy of innovation by and for the athlete remains. In addition to a passion for athletics and creation, the team has always shared the common bond of also working for the community and supporting social causes.
G-Form prides itself on being a company dedicated to constantly improving athletic experience and also to providing extreme protection for personal electronics. The company’s products include knee pads, shin pads, elbow guards, bike shoe gel pads and insoles, skate lace gel pads, and bike saddle gel kits.
