While the Shock Sleeve Pro Knee Gasket from Ennui may not carry the same level of protection as a thick padded, hard-cap protector, it sure does make up for it in the way it allows you to move freely while doing your action sport.
A stretchable knitted cotton sleeve has been fitted internally with silicone strips to prevent slippage, ensure a snug fit and that the pads stay in place all the time. These pads feature the uniquely developed material - SPC - that is the brainchild of both the development team at Ennui/Powerslide and the guys over at MyFit - Who make skate liners for Powerslide.
This material will not only absorb the load of impact but also help disperse it throughout the construction - Ensuring that the impact to your joints is limited as much as possible. The Pro version features an abrasion resistant Kevlar coating, which provides more flexy comfort and protection than the non-pro version and allows you to move around even more freely.
A clear benefit from this soft-shell protection is both the low weight and also the ability to be protected beneath your regular clothing - Allowing you to look stylish and be fully protected at the same time.
Besides crash protection, the pro version also protects from glides with its high abrasion resistant Aramid fiber cover. A smart choice for downhill longboarders and speed skaters. The pro model is also slightly lighter than the non-pro version, weighing next to nothing.
