“Leatt’s 3DF 6.0 knee guards are streamlined, yes, but they also offer more protection than you’ll receive from the many knee guards out there that are, by comparison, heavy-duty knee warmers.”

Pinkbike tested our new Leatt 6.0 Knee Guard recently, which consists of a vented, pre-curved Neoprene sleeve that provides snug joint support while hard shell sliders and Lab-developed impact foam take the heavier knocks.

“Leatt took a flexible chassis and paired it with a bit of hardshell protection. In short, the 3DF 6.0 is a hybrid pad of sorts–the benefits of soft and hard-shell armor in a fairly svelte package that you can comfortably pedal around in in all day, and yet still rely on when you really cook a corner and hit the deck,” Pinkbike wrote.
