If you do shuttle days, bike parks, or love to hit the burly and chunky trails these are ideal. They offer heavy front & moderate side knee protection, don't slip during falls, and allow you to choose the tightness of the fit pretty well via 4-velcro straps. They've also held up through time very well. I typically pedal up, take off shoes, slide these on once at top because they are bulky/warm for longer rides. If you consider yourself a XC rider, go for lighter G-forms, if your primary trail rides are more than XC-type then these knee pads will be a great companion.
Down sides for this pad are minimal. In warmer weather (>80 deg F) they do get a little toasty and sweaty. Next, I can not pull these pads over my shoes. Like I said minimal downsides but not perfect. Durability is good but I will post an update, if needed after extended usage.
Only downsides are their bulk and how hot they are. And I haven't tested them in warmer weather yet, but I'm sure they'll be sweaty and hot. Otherwise, these are great and totally worth the money.
After 5 months use, the pads have held up great. I think since I have been riding more aggressively, I have had a few situations where my flat pedal shreds the back of my calf. Unfortunately last week, it shred the back of this pad. Huge flaw if this happens to you a lot. Otherwise, great pads. Other pads I have purchased are much more substantial in the rear area. Look into the alpinestars volcano. Bulky...but pretty bombproof for soft shell pads.
