Review: Are Rapha Knee Pads comfortable, breathable and protective?

Posted on June 24, 2022 by Jessie-May Morgan

There’s a fair bit of trial and error required when it comes to finding the perfect set of knee pads for trail riding. They need to tick a lot of boxes. They can’t bunch up and pinch anywhere, they can’t have misplaced seams that create friction, they need to be flexible enough to move with you, not against you, as your knee comes up over the pedal stroke, they need to offer proper impact protection to the knee cap (and the upper shin if possible), they need to be durable so they don’t tear the first time you crash in them, and for the summer months, they need to be breathable. It’s not too much to ask, right?

SCOR MTB, a skunkworks division of BMC, has released two children’s mountain bikes; the 0020 with 20″ wheels, and the 0024 with 24″ wheels. Both frames are fabricated from a lightweight double-butted aluminum tubeset, and are fully rigid, with the only trail chatter damping coming from the high-volume Kenda Booster 2.4” tires. The 20″ caters to 5-8 year-olds (or riders 110-135 cm tall), while the 24″ caters to 6-11 year-olds, or riders 120-145 cm tall.
