Default thin knee pads

I got a pair of those 187 skate pads. They're too bulky for me, so I don't wear them.

Is there a pair of thin knee pads that don't get in the way when you do crossovers or other moves where your legs are close to each other.

These would be for indoor wood rink use. I'd still wear the thicker ones outdoors.

Hi purlingwood,

Are the 187's you use - those Hard Shelled really thick ones ?

I use the Nike Volley Ball style Knee Pads. Fit nicely under my pants and don't even restrict my Full Sit Spins - or any other moves.

Think you can post a link or pic.

Are these basically elastic with maybe thumb thick material over them.

How tall are yours. I see ones that barely go over the knee and maybe taller ones that are 9 or 10 inches long.

What would you think a 195lb guy that is 5'10" would be. A medium?

I got those hard covered ones. Never fell with them on though.

Hi purlingwood,

You need to measure your Knee Circumference. I've got big bones and Joints - so I use the XTra Large. The Taller Ones will protect your Lower Leg a bit more than just the Knee - a good thing.

I'm 6' 4" (6' 9" on Sk8s) and 215 lbs. they've been protecting me for Decades.

Even worked back when I road those Stilt Skates you see me on in the Avatar - at 7' 9.5" tall, and close to 27yrs. riding on them.

There are other units that may do as well - as you're a little closer to the Floor.

well i bought 2 dollar ones from ebay, blue volleyball type.
did a knee drop test and it rubbed bad.

only going to put them on if i injure myself or have a cut.

not long ago i landed on my skate with a knee.
usd carbon soul is sharp.
left the skatepark straight after that.


bit of blood but it was only on the inside on my pants.

I have some of these knee gaskets I wear when I'm trail skating or just taking it easy around the flat areas of the park.

Knee Gaskets. Available at Aggressive mall, or roller warehouse.

Also, you might try dirt bike knee and shin protectors. I have a few of those too. (when I'm doing coping grinds)
