kinda short post but I want to see others reaction.
I had some Dakine Thrillium knee pads that were bulky but I liked nevertheless. Then yesterday I took a decently hard fall and the knee pads failed me at a crucial time. They spun off my leg with the friction of the dirt and left me completely exposed to the dry, dusty, rocky ground at full speed.
well about 80% of the skin on my kneecap is missing now and bending my leg is excruciating. The end.
