When Fuse protection asked us to test their knee pad I did not know a lot about this brand and accepted right away since the model was pretty interesting.
About Fuse Protection
Fuse pads are well known, well loved and well used by riders all over the world. From pro riders to rookies our protection inspires those with confidence to take their riding to the next level. Our latest line of protection gear has had a serious makeover, with the addition of new design features, materials, technologies and have of course retained the ‘bullet proof’ quality they are best known for.
The Fuse Alpha Classic Knee Pad has been fully redesigned from the ground up. Constructed from a breathable perforated and tougher Duratex neoprene with air plush lining for maximum comfort. The back side of the pad uses a dual layer Lycra design, that is soft on the inside but strong and durable on the outside. To protect your knees from impact we use EVA foam under a nylon hard cap, with additional padding for side impacts.
The Pad has had a full redesign this year for improved comfort, fit, and durability. Sharkskin neoprene gripper keeps the pad firmly in place, and our new anti-bacterial neoprene keeps your pads fresh and ready for use day after day.

Testing and conclusion
I tested the knee pads during the whole summer. From mountain biking in high heats, rain and lower temperature, the knee pads were well ventilated, comfortable even with mountain bike pants and shorts and stayed in place really well. I suggest trying them before buying since the sizes are on the small side. For about 90.00$ cad it is a model that I recommend.
