    Dainese Trail Skins are good for everything from dh to xc, I had trouble with 661 rages pads slipping down and being super uncomfortable after long rides.

    Trail skins fit me well and are flexible. They haven't seemed to affect my pedaling but have saved my knees once or twice so far... no slipping and well ventilated.

    Thanks, I have had a look and they seem to get excellent reviews, I will probably pick some up soon...

    I ordered some a few days ago from Wiggle based on opinions on here, looking forward to seeing how they go.

    Be sure to update, last ride I noticed a hole increasing in size on my 661 Rage between the main padding and the top strap... will be hunting for a replacement eventually.

    Will do. You'll probably see them getting a thorough working over if you're doing the Cressy race?

    Another +1 for Dianese Trailskins.
    Always been a fan of there gear, but never liked knee pads etc in general. Haven't had any complaints with these yet and are very well made.
