The RAGE HARD Series offers a step up in bombproof protection. Of course they're built rugged like the rest of the Rage Series, but with an external hard cap for added protection to deflect, slide and slip your way across whatever happens next. Completely redesigned for 2016, Rage Hard Knee/Shin Pads, like the rest of the series, are lighter, have extended coverage zones and improved breathability. A new, low-profile chassis protects from the knee down to the ankle. An internal flexible knee impact cap is covered with Kevlar and has the external hard cap. And stretch mesh sandwiches dense perforated impact EVA on the inside & outside of knee and shin, while the rear of the pad is breathable stretch mesh. Wear SIXSIXOne EVO shorts and the Rage Knee/Shin pads attach via the new PADLOCK connection system. The system inner-connects pieces, keeping your pads in place where they'll do the most good, regardless of how you move. You just lock it and forget it.
