Kali Protectives is a mainstay when it comes to mountain bike protective equipment like knee pads. The brand has just released the newly redesigned Mission 2.0 knee pads, which offer comfortable protection to trail and enduro riders. 

Since mountain bikers are increasingly asking for knee pads that are comfortable and flexible, Kali has designed a pad that offers a medium amount of protection and can be pedaled in all day long. 

The Mission 2.0 features 4-way stretch spandex articulated construction so the pads slip right into place and stay there throughout the ride. A mesh backing offers ventilation, leading to increased comfort. 

An abrasion-resistant knee cap and 3D molded knee puck offer protection against scrapes and impacts. 

A tall length adds stability and adds to the knee coverage area, while silicone grippers keep the pad in place. 

We'll keep you up to date on if these new Kali pads rank among the best mountain bike knee pads.
