Skate knee pads that provide complete freedom of movement
Find the right knee pads that meet your needs on this page and avoid bad knee injuries when skateboarding, rollerblading or riding on a scooter. You can find a wide range of knee protection for both beginners and more experienced skaters. The skate knee pads at SkatePro are usually anatomically shaped and out of breathable materials. They are comfortable, so you can easily move and bend your knees without having that annoying feeling of something tightening around your knees. Some of the knee pads also have reflective tape on to make you visible when it is dark outside.
Knee protection for skiing, snowboarding, BMX, dancing and everyday use
The knee pads on this page are specifically designed for skaters and riders, but they can easily be used for many other purposes. Even people who ski or snowboard, as well as BMX riders, can benefit from skate knee pads - the G-Form knee protection is especially popular. It is anatomically-shaped and only hardens upon impact.
Also, dancers will benefit from using knee pads when they perform certain steps where they fall down on the knees - causing high impacts on the knee shells. Knee protection with a hole in the back or with a stretchy material is optimal for dancing because of higher flexibility.
If you experience discomfort in the knees in your everyday life and wish to stabilise your knees, some knee pads and knee gaskets can easily be used for this purpose as well. It is also a good idea to use knee protection if you perform work where you kneel a lot, for example when gardening.
Even though you see some skateboarders without knee pads, there are several benefits of using them and at SkatePro we always encourage our customers to use protective equipment. Not only do you get an opportunity to enjoy your sport for many years without any discomfort in the knees, but knowing that your knee pads will protect you, might also just give you that extra confidence boost you need to nail that trick.
This way you can actually improve your performance without having to waste any time at the emergency room where they might even tell you to put skating on pause for some time before you are ready to go back.
Knee pads with a special design for comfort
Remember that knee pads today come in many different designs, some of which are even designed with special technologies that provide extra comfort so it doesn’t feel like you are wearing anything around your knees. Some models are even so flat-designed that you can wear them under your trousers if you don’t want them to be visible.
But you can also find knee pad models with a strong focus on the design, which extends your skate knee pads to a part of your fashion style.
What do knee pads protect you against?
Skate knee pads protect your knee shells from getting injured when taking hard beatings from the falls that all skaters experience from time to time. Whether you fall on a hard surface like the floor, hit a wall or fall on a rail, the knee protection will drastically minimise the risk of knee injuries and damages of the femur and tibia. These are parts that often get injured in skating, because of crooked landings. With knee pads on, you will avoid bone fractures in and around your knees. The compression and padding provide a shock absorption effect and will keep you protected.
