In all honesty, the job of the brand new K_Pact_Amp could hardly be more difficult: as it has evolved from the test-winning and very popular K_Pact, the expectations it faces are high. However, K_Pact_Amp masters this situation calmly: featuring SAS-TEC padding with EN 1621, Level 2 certification, the absorption capabilities are on a par with its sibling. What’s more, it also boasts a number of additional features. In combination with the similarly new shin extension S_Pad_Amp, the K_Pact_ Amp becomes a superb all-rounder: both can be combined to offer full-guard knee-shin protection for laps in the park or on DH tracks. Equipped with the Quick_E zipper opening on the side, the K_Pact_Amp also performs excellently on extended trail tours. Quick_E allows for easy on & off so you can leave your shoes on when fitting or removing the pads. And that’s extremely helpful after long climbs or when entering extensive transfers.
