This one-of-a-kind kneepad features a wraparound design with quick-cinch buckles that makes the pad easy on, easy off. Instead of taking off your shoes or bunching up your pants, you can strap it around almost anything on your leg—no more duct tape, liquid adhesives, or weird shave jobs just to get your kneepad on. Thick, sticky rubber helped climbers hold those beta-heavy kneebars in Rifle, Colorado, and Hueco Tanks, Texas, and the flexible Airprene material on the side panels is perforated to allow air flow, thus reducing slippery sweat. The buckles are strategically positioned to prevent pinching, even when your leg is bent back. The new Mini has two buckles and fits even smaller legs.
