The Triple 8 KP Pro Knee Pad is the top of the line, awesome, slim knee cloud pillow (pad) which any skater would be delighted to fall upon. The KP Pro was designed to not only protect our most valued and relied upon knees, but to also allow for increased movement and less bulk. Another super great tid bit about these super great knee pads, is that they strap on via a neoprene butterfly back closure...What does this mean to you and I? There is no sliding of the knee pad up your super awesome, crazy strong, tough as nails calf to get your knee pad up to your knee. You simply have to strap the pads around your knees and you are ready to kick some serious butt (side note, you will also need your sprakly clean mouth guard, sick stickered helmet, crisp untorn palm guards, shnazzy elbow pads, and of course your 8 wheely super gliders (skates) to actually kick some serious butt...).
