Discover the advantages of each of our models
Knee pads are a must if you're going to be doing any kind of work outside. They're also important for our health and safety, especially if we're working on hard surfaces like concrete and asphalt that can wear down our knees over time. Even if you work in an office, you may find yourself on your knees many times a day in order to clean under furniture or perform other tasks. But while all knee pads are designed to help protect your joints from being damaged by bumps, bruises, scrapes and cuts—it's important to know exactly how each type works in order to choose the best one for your needs.
In this article we'll cover the types of knee pads sold on our website, and we'll show what makes each one unique from other alternatives on the market so you know what features matter most when it comes to protecting yourself. Let's get started!
Gel core offers patellar support and extra padding
The models we offer on our website all have an integrated gel core in the pad’s center, covering the patella.
It compresses under pressure from your knee, providing better cushioning and shock resistance. The foam layers on either side provide support under your kneecap, helping to prevent hyperextension of the patella and associated pain.
They are also an ideal choice for those who need extra cushioning for long periods of time or during high-impact activities like running or jumping. A properly designed knee pad should have both elements to reduce pain and protect against damage.
Elastic and velcro-free for a better longevity
It's very important that your knee pad stays in place, especially when you're on the move. Velcro straps can wear out quickly and come undone when you need them to stay put.
Elastic straps make for a comfortable fit, but they also offer more durability than velcro because they won't loosen as easily. They offer a great way to keep your knee pads securely in place without the risk of them coming undone.
The elastic nature of the straps allows you to adjust the fit easily, as well as being able to cross them at the back of your calves for increased stability. Knee pads should be worn snugly enough so that they stay put when you're on the move, but they shouldn't be too tight to cause discomfort or restrict movement.
Adjustable straps with quick-release buckles
The quick-release buckles found on each of our models provide unparalleled ease of use. They make adjustments easy, enabling you to get a snug fit on your knee pads, while offering an excellent level of security when you're doing your job around the house or yard.
The buckles are designed to allow the straps to fit around any leg size without being too tight. They also provide extra support when kneeling down because the clasp keeps everything in place and prevents slipping. Like their name implies, installation and removal of the knee caps are facilitated by the way they can clip in and be released quickly.
Lightweight, yet robust and durable
Knee pads are one of the most essential tools for any craftsman. They can help you avoid injury and keep you going strong all day long, regardless of how long your project is or how heavy it may be. You might want to wear these pads for hours at a time, or you might only need them for a few minutes before switching back to work.
Our knee pads are made from durable foam material yet remain lightweight to avoid adding unnecessary stress to your joints. Even with arthritis or other conditions, wearing them shouldn't affect your mobility and you might even forget they're there!
Although are our models are one size fits all, we offer models varying in length and in the number of straps to cover the different situations in which you could want to use them. For example, the Extra Stable Knee Pads shown above offer a third elastic strap for added tightness, all the while covering a bigger portion of your knee and thigh.
However, if you're looking for something even lighter or more discreet, consider checking out our Small Versatile Knee Pads, as they provide remarkable protection while easily fitting in your work bag or toolbox.
Combining toughness and flexibility
We understand the need for comfortable knee protection that also performs under rough conditions, insuring stability without restraining movement. This is the reason we also offer a model specifically designed to provide the best of both worlds.
Our flexible rubber knee caps are, in appearance, identical to our rigid shell models. However, the material of their grip pattern deforms more easily to allow a bigger range of movement, while offering optimal adherence properties. The red rubber also delivers a stylish, bolder look!

Waterproof and non-slip knee pads for use in slippery conditions
Our knee pads are enjoyed by construction workers and handymen who work on wet surfaces like bridges, roofs, or other structures that are exposed to rain or moisture. The rubber material of the grip pattern provides a non-slip nature that helps keep balance while working on uneven or slippery terrain, such as gravel, grass, or dirt.
Aside from providing comfort on wet surfaces or when in time of heavy rain, the waterproof properties of our models ensure less needed maintenance; because their coating will prevent moisture from infiltrating the layers and leading to bacteria growth, bad smell or rotting. This makes our knee pads more likely to endure the toll of time!
Soft fabric and breathable models
If you are looking for a knee pad that is made of soft and breathable materials, our soft fabric model is the ideal choice. They can be worn all day long without making you feel uncomfortable or sweaty, while remaining malleable, so they fit perfectly on your knees and are easy to put on or take off.
These knee pads are perfect for indoor or garden use because they are made of breathable materials. Their comfortable design allows you to move freely while working: use the garden fork or kneel down to plant flowers in springtime! Take a look at our Soft Fabric Knee Pads.
It’s clear that knee pads have come a long way. From their humble beginnings as simple pieces of cloth wrapped around the knees to protect them from hard surfaces, the evolution of this product has been extensive. It’s time for you to stop suffering through discomfort and make your next purchase with confidence!
