Design PhilosophyProtection – it’s in our DNA. An expanded line up of protectors ensures every type of mountain biker is catered for. We work with the best riders to develop our products including the first family of DH, the Athertons. The MT500 Hard Shell knee protectors provide the highest level of fully certified protection for peace of mind in the most extreme situations.
D3O ProtectionD3O uses patented, patent-pending and proprietary technology to make rate-sensitive, soft, flexible materials with high shock absorbing properties. D3O's core technology applies non-Newtonian principles to materials which are engineered for shock absorption. Non-Newtonian materials stiffen on impact to dissipate impact energy and reduce transmitted force, before returning to their flexible state.

"This padding is attached to a sleeve that extends quite high above the knee. An elasticated band at the top, furnished with silicone gripper, helps hold it in place. This is backed up by a broad Velcro strap.
A second strap just above the broadest part of your calf muscle lets you tailor the fit further, and there’s more silicone at the bottom.
All this means that, despite these not being the lightest pads out there, I had no issues with them slipping down or with material bunching behind the knee. They’re incredibly comfy too, even on lengthy rides with a lot of pedalling."
