There are several skateboarding knee pads to choose from these days and it’s really personal preference and whether you are riding vert, street or park that can determine the best pad for your style. Prior to picking up my BonelessPro Knee Pads, I had been using Pro-Tec knee and elbow pads. I felt a little restricted in these pads and wanted to upgrade to something that didn’t require me to take my shoes on/off when putting on my pads. Both Boneless Pads and 187 Killer Pads have the butterfly strap configuration that I was looking for, Dave was able to check out 187 Killer Pads, so I was excited to try Boneless Pads.
The first thing I noticed was the lightweight construction of these pads, sure they are a bit bulky, coming from my previous pads the Boneless Pro Knee Pads were a big step up in construction and comfort. The butterfly closure system was just what I was looking for, they are easy to put on and take off, and they stay in place. I no longer have the pinching feeling behind my knee from my previous pads. The articulated foam really helps keep the pads in place for longer sessions. The caps are holding up very well and when it’s time I can simply replace them with new caps easily. The caps are secured by strong velcro on the inner and outer front portion of the pad. These pads have had their fair share of sweaty days, and even without any antimicrobial treatment, they still don’t stink. Performance is great, when I’ve gone to my knees in my Boneless Pro Knee Pads they’ve done an excellent job time after time, I’ve never had an issue with the pads sliding down and I feel confident they will stay in place whenever I need them.
There’s a lot of choices in skateboarding pads and I’m very happy with Boneless Pro Knee Pads, they have held up great for over a year now. Boneless Pads are on the higher end for pricing, but for protection, comfort and durability these pads hit the mark for me and I’m banking on them lasting for several years to come.
Easy to take on/off
dries quickly and doesn’t smell after months of use
