The RHEON™ material is made from highly strain-rate sensitive polymers that stiffen momentarily while absorbing energy. These properties make this material ideal for a trail kneepad, which has some unique requirements. It must be comfy enough to pedal in all day, but provide significant protection for the way down.
Utilising this material, and combining it with complex geometries that fold in on themselves when impacted, we collaborated with RHEON™ to develop a kneepad that feels great to pedal in but also provides a very high level of protection.
