The Trail Skins Air line focuses on lightness and breathability, optimizing the structure of protectors to maximize ventilation and contain overall weight.
The Trail Skins Air knee guard is constructed around the Pro-Shape 2.0 protector, inspired by the geometry of auxetic materials present in nature that, following an impact or stress, expand in all directions simultaneously, increasing the area of coverage.
The structure of the Pro-Shape 2.0 protector allows for maximum flexibility and adaptability whatever the knee position, tracing its movements throughout all phases of activity. It absorbs 83% of the force of an impact, rather than transmitting this to the knee. 55% of its surface area is completely open, ensuring ventilation and greater heat exchange during both the uphill and downhill phases. An ideal feature for riders who plan to take on long rides, even on the hottest of days.
The knee guard remains stable, even during intense activity, thanks to a very long, transparent sock on the thigh and a practical elastic at calf height.
The supplementary protector on the outside edges of the knee guard is designed to ensure protection even in case of sliding along the ground.
