    Defender Shorts really lived by its name.

    Bought in November and to be honest that since I put them on.. it suddenly gave me a feeling of total support and a complete sense of protection.

    It's really worth it.

    Once I am wearing it, it gives me an additional support while doesn't feel bulky of over the top.

    Wear it and forget it as it was there..

    Totally worth it

    Great job Knox

    I bought the Defender MTB Shorts after hitting the deck on my commute recently. It turns out the blue surfacing on London's Cycle Superhighways turn into something akin to an ice rink for rubber when wet, yet still gives your skin a good road rash when you skid along it!



    Since buying the Defender shorts a couple of weeks ago I have ridden over 100 miles with them and while I haven't (fortunately) properly tested their impact resistance, I have found them to be remarkably comfortable. The armour is very flexible, not too bulky, stays in place nicely and does not chafe at all, even when riding low in the drops (ie flexed right over at the hips). The only reason they did not get the fifth star from me is that I did not find the chamois particularly comfortable on long rides to the extent that I have taken it out and cut out the velcro fixing pads from the inside of the shorts, which has solved the problem.



    I'd love to see a bib short version to keep my lower back warm in winter.



    In any case, I am really pleased with my purchase and am definitely going to buy one of the armoured shirts next.

    Very good under motorcycle leather trousers, armour stays in the right places, far better than when the armour is in the trousers.

    I purchased these shorts for use under my Kevlar lined jeans and also my 1 piece leathers as neither of them have hip armour. These shorts are very comfortable even after 5 hours of riding, the silicone on the bottom of the legs keeps the shorts exactly where you want them. To sum up a great product by Knox.

    Good product heaps of protection un the right places, be aware that pritection comes at a cost this thing weights more than you would expect, not quite noticeable after you get used to it, but if you are weight concious keep that in mind. Havent use yet on a warm day.

    Hi Guys, I purchased my wife a pair of the Defender MTB shorts as I have been so happy with mine over the last few weeks. They are comfortable and can be worn under my jeans. My wife decided that she would like to try a pair also to offer her a little more choice when riding.

    I must add that the delivery was amazing!! An order placed in Australia on a Friday afternoon and the good arrived on Monday afternoon!! We can't have things that efficient even locally!!



    Thanks again, have shared this information with plenty of friends who ride and we will continue to purchase from you.



    Thanks again.

    The shorts did make my bottom ache on a long ride. Suggest a new profile for the padding.
