7iDP Control Knee Pads (Pair) - Low Profile, Light Weight, Hard Shell Protection

The 7 iDP Control Knee Pads sit in the middle of the uber low profile Covert Knee Pads and the more burly Tactic Knee Pads. We think the Control Knees strike a great balance and are a superb choice for the rider who goes up as often as down, wants the benefits of hard shell knee protection, but also wants to carry very little weight.

With the 7iDP Curv® knee cap, really effective pedal flex zones, well ventilating custom foams, and the innovative new Center Strap System, the 7iDP Control Knee Pads represent a minimalistic approach to pedal friendly knee protection.

Features of the 7iDP Control Knee Pads:

  • Pedal flex zone between the hard shell cap and the upper pad/strap area helps ensure the pads stay in position while pedaling
  • A small silicon strip on the inside top of the pad helps the pads stay in place and not slip down while you ride (or crash)
  • 7iDP's Curv® low weight, high strength 1mm cap for excellent fit. It's a super slim hard cap that looks like carbon, contours a bit, and helps slide out vs grab the dirt when you fall
  • Double layer "polygon perforated custom foam" around the pad that increases air flow through the padding and reduces weight
  • The top strap of the knee pad allows you to adjust the hook and loop fasteners on either the left or right side of the knee. This let's you infinitely adjust the top strap to ensure a custom fit
  • The rear adjustment strap sits above your calf to help prevent knee pad from slipping down
  • Designed beyond CE EN 1621/1 standard to ensure maximum protection
  • Weight 180g
