I don't know how that would work? I guess that will be up to Mike. Have you used them at all?
I am not sure if I will be doing another batch, probably not as I'm sure Mike won't cover the half shipping and ALL the duty like he did again. I can do the numbers to see if the way we did it is slightly cheaper than single sets, it might be.
I am going to add my own review as I used mine for the first time properly today. I love them. Full stop.
Now, I do realise that I think the pair I had were from a later batch, they came in a separate box with no packaging and without caps so I guess they are a different batch and it seems they don't have the long strap issue (which lets face it, is only a bit of cutting and sewing to fix and Mike has said he will pay for that, the guy's bending over backwards here!)
Regardless of that, I was able to tweak the cap placement a bit (I found that once wearing them I had to move the caps lower and a little bit towards centre, from what I thought when I attached them unworn.) Once on and riding they were extremely comfortable straight from the start, in that I didn't feel like I was wearing pads from my first run. When i did eventually bail (it took I while, I skeet good
) I kneeslid without thinking too much about it. If anything they slide almost too well, but the concrete ramp I was riding is super smooth. I wish i had some of the Lexan caps to compare, maybe a slightly slower slide would have been good, but on any other ramp I think they will be perfect.
I didn't really have anything like Mike's bail to test the padding, but by falling on to my knees from standing on purpose just as a test they cushioned the impact completely.
I just wish my padded shorts had done as well for my arse when I sat down hard on the coping trying a back smith. OUCH!
